The transfer window has closed - and every Premier League club must make do with what they have until the end of the season. Cheap MLB Jerseys . Did your club get the players they needed? Did they get good value for those that left? We asked Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson to review the signings that each club has made and grade their January transfer business... ARSENAL: C- Arsenal signed Mohamed Elneny in the January transfer window In: Mohamed Elneny - Basel, £5mOut: Mathieu Debuchy - Bordeaux, Loan, Glen Kamara - Southend, LoanMERSE SAYS:  They get a C because they didnt do enough. Mohamed Elneny is nowhere near enough. They definitely needed a defensive midfield player, but also a forward. If Olivier Giroud gets injured then can Theo Walcott come in and score enough goals in the last 15 games?ASTON VILLA: Z- Philippe Senderos was allowed to leave Aston Villa In: NoneOut: Callum Robinson - Preston, Loan, Joe Cole - Coventry, Free, Gary Gardner - Nottingham Forest, Loan, Joe Bennett - Sheffield Wednesday, Loan, Jose Angel Crespo - Rayo Vallecano, Loan, Philippe Senderos - ReleasedMERSE SAYS: Whats the lowest I can give? How about a Z-? Theyve done nothing. Theyve let some players go and I think theyre just preparing for the Championship. Even so, why not start buying players now? Why not go and get Jordan Rhodes? They are virtually waving the white flag and saying goodbye to the Premier League.BOURNEMOUTH: A- Benik Afobe was a big arrival at Bournemouth In: Juan Iturbe - Roma, Loan, Benik Afobe - Wolves, £10m, Lewis Grabban - Norwich, £7m, Marius Adamonis - Atlantas, Loan, Rhoys Wiggins - Sheffield Wednesday, £200,000Out: Jayden Stockley - Exeter, Loan, Elliott Ward - Blackburn, Undisclosed, Yann Kermorgant - Reading, Undisclosed, Lee Tomlin, Bristol City, Loan, Ryan Allsop - Wycombe, LoanMERSE SAYS: I like what theyve done. They brought in Afobe and Grabban and theyve said right, we need to score goals and fair play to them, theyve had a go. Theyve spent money and I do like the business theyve done.CHELSEA: C- Alexandre Pato poses with his new Chelsea shirt In: Alexandre Pato - Corinthians, Loan, Matt Miazga - New York Red BullsOut: Ramires - Jiangsu Suning, Undisclosed, Papy Djilobodji - Werder Bremen, Loan, Alex Kiwomya - Fleetwood, Loan, Charly Musonda - Real Betis, Loan, Patrick Bamford - Norwich, Loan, Christian Atsu - Malaga, Loan, Mitchell Beeney - Newport, Loan, Marco van Ginkel - PSV, LoanMERSE SAYS: Pato? Whats he done other than one good year in Milan? He mustve thought it was a joke when Chelsea rung him up! And how can you give Branislav Ivanovic another year and not John Terry? You give him one because hes John Terry, just to get the fans back on side. Theyre not going to be playing Champions League football next year and its going to be rocky - especially with Pep Guardiola coming in at Man City - so why not give him another year?CRYSTAL PALACE: B- Emmanuel Adebayor signed for Crystal Palace In: Emmanuel Adebayor - Free, Randall Williams - Tower Hamlets, UndisclosedOut: Jack Hunt - Sheffield Wednesday, Undisclosed, Jonny Williams - MK Dons, LoanMERSE SAYS: With Emmanuel Adebayor, it could end up being a B+ signing or a D- signing. Thats what hes like. Ill give them B- for now because he does have the potential to rip it up.EVERTON: C Shani Tarashaj has joined Everton In: Oumar Niasse - Lokomotiv Moscow, £13.5m, Shani Tarashaj - Grasshoppers Zurich, £3m, Matty Foulds - Bury, UndisclosedOut: Shani Tarashaj - Grasshoppers Zurich, Loan, Steven Naismith - Norwich, £8.5m, Liam Walsh - Yeovil, Loan, Jonjoe Kenny - Oxford Utd, Loan, Aiden McGeady, Sheffield Wednesday, LoanMERSE SAYS: I like Steven Naismith, I thought he was a good player for them. If Im being honest I dont know much about Oumar Niasse because Ive never seen him play. Theyve brought in players who are not proven, so they could be really hit and miss.LEICESTER CITY: B Leicester snapped up Demarai Gray In: Demarai Gray - Birmingham, £3.75m, Daniel Amartey - FC Copenhagen, £5m, Daniel Iversen - Esbjerg, £200,000Out: Andrej Kramaric - Hoffenheim, Loan, Joe Davis - Fleetwood, Undisclosed, Jak McCourt - Barnsley, Undisclosed, Alie Sesay - Barnet, Undisclosed, Joe Davis - Fleetwood, Undisclosed, Tom Lawrence - Cardiff, Loan, Ritchie De Laet - Middlesbrough, Loan, Yohan Benalouane - Fiorentina, LoanMERSE SAYS: I like what theyre doing at the minute. Theyre having a good go, theyre looking and thinking right, were going to need to score goals to win the Premier League and they play with a high tempo and work hard so you do need players who are going to be 100 per cent. I like their business and Demarai Gray is one for the future.LIVERPOOL: D Steven Caulker joined Liverpool during the window In: Marko Grujic - Red Star Belgrade, £5.1m, Steven Caulker - QPR, LoanOut: Marko Grujic - Red Star Belgrade, Loan, Ryan Fulton - Portsmouth, LoanMERSE SAYS: Their business will be done in the summer. I think Jurgen Klopps come in and thought lets get this season out of the way now and will be thinking this is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I think theyll do more business than anybody in the summer and therell be more ins and outs at Liverpool than at any other club. I think hes just waiting for next season. You cant really give them a mark because they havent done anything, so its just a D.MANCHESTER CITY: C Anthony Caceres was a surprise arrival at Man City In: Anthony Caceres - Central Coast Mariners, £150,000Out: Shay Facey - Rotherham, Loan, George Evans - Reading, Undisclosed, Ian Lawlor - Bury, Loan, Patrick Roberts - Celtic, Loan, Enes Unal - NAC Brada, Loan, Bruno Zuculini - AEK Athens, LoanMERSE SAYS: Pep Guardiola to City was the worst kept secret in the world and I wonder if they announced it on Deadline Day as a cover-up so that they dont have to go and buy anybody. I think theyve tried to pull the wool over the fans eyes by announcing Guardiola and not signing anybody. For me, they still needed players this season.MANCHESTER UNITED: D Victor Valdes finally departed Old Trafford In: NoneOut: Victor Valdes - Standard Liege, Loan, Ashley Fletcher - Barnsley, Loan, Ben Pearson - Preston, Undisclosed, Liam Grimshaw - Preston, UndisclosedMERSE SAYS: Im very surprised they havent signed anybody and now with Pep Guardiola going to City, and Liverpool and Man City reaching the Capital One Cup final, it doesnt get any better for them. You have to give them a D because they havent done anything. If a kid doesnt do his homework then hes going to get a D - and they havent done their homework.NEWCASTLE UNITED: A+ Steve McLaren was happy with new signing Jonjo Shelvey In: Henri Saivet - Bordeaux, £5m, Jonjo Shelvey - Swansea, £12m, Andros Townsend - Tottenham, £12m, Seydou Doumbia, CSKA Moscow, LoanOut: Mike Williamson - Wolves, £200,000, Shane Ferguson - Millwall, Undisclosed, Florian Thauvin - Marseille, Loan, Gael Bigirimana - Coventry, Loan, Kyle Cameron - York, LoanMERSE SAYS: Theyve had a right go in the transfer market and it was 100 per cent the right thing to do. I like what theyve bought; Andros Townsend and Jonjo Shelvey have played in the Premier League, theyve played international football, they always want to get on the ball and I really like that. Id be shocked if Newcastle went down now.NORWICH CITY: A Steven Naismith scores on his Norwich debut In: Steven Naismtih - Everton, £8.5m, Timm Klose - Wolfsburg, £7.6m, Patrick Bamford - Chelsea, Loan, Ivo Pinto - Dinamo Zagreb, Undisclosed, Matt Jarvis - West Ham, £2.5m, Ben Godfrey - York City, Undisclosed, Ebou Adams - Dartford, Undisclosed, James Maddison - Coventry, UndisclosedOut: Elliott Bennett - Blackburn Rovers, Undisclosed , Lewis Grabban - Bournemouth, £7m, Conor McGrandles - Falkirk, Loan, Gary Hooper - Sheffield Wednesday, Undisclosed, Harry Toffolo - Peterborough, Loan, Jake Kean - Colchester, Loan, Jamar Loza - Southend, Loan, James Maddison - Coventry, LoanMERSE SAYS: I like Norwich and Ill give them an A for effort as well for having a go in the market. I like teams who have a go, I dont like people who sit there and think oh, I dont know, should we do this or that? Why not try to keep yourself in the division?SOUTHAMPTON: B Ronald Koeman snapped up Charlie Austin In: Charlie Austin - QPR, £4mOut: Sam McQueen - Southend, LoanMERSE SAYS: I think theyve nicked Charlie Austin at a good price. Theyve made one signing and it depends how he carries on but I do like him.STOKE CITY: B+ Niall Quinn and Paul Merson give their reaction to Giannelli Imbulas Stoke move In: Giannelli Imbula - Porto, £18.3mOut: Steve Sidwell - Brighton, Loan, Eddy Lecygne - Doncaster, LoanMERSE SAYS: Its been a hard week for them, going out of the FA Cup and out of the Capital One Cup but theyve brought in a new £18m signing on Deadline Day to lift the spirits of the fans. You have to wonder why they left it to the last minute when they had the whole month?SUNDERLAND: C Lorient defender Lamine Kone joined Sunderland In: Lamine Kone - Lorient, £5m, Dame NDoye - Trabzonspor, Loan, Jan Kirchhoff - Bayern Munich, Undisclosed, Steve Harper - FreeOut: Steven Fletcher - Marseille, Loan, Costel Pantilimon - Watford, Undisclosed, Will Buckley - Birmingham, Loan, Danny Graham - Blackburn, Loan, Lynden Gooch - Doncaster, Loan, Charis Mavrias - Fortuna Dusseldorf, Loan, Sebastian Coates - Sporting Lisbon, LoanMERSE SAYS: This is a hard one but you cant doubt Sam Allardyce because he does his homework. Hes got to bring defenders in who are going to keep them in touch for the next five games because their next five fixtures are a joke. Then after that, when theyve got to win games, are they going to have enough to win them because they havent bought strikers? It could go horribly wrong. If they do get draws and a few points in the hard games then theyve got to go and win games and I dont think hes got the firepower to win them, apart from Jermain Defoe.SWANSEA CITY: C Alberto Paloschi was a new arrival at Swansea In: Alberto Paloschi - Chievo, £8m, Leroy Fer - QPR, Loan, Ryan Blair - Falkirk, UndisclosedOut: Jonjo Shelvey - Newcastle, £12m, Eder - Lille, Loan, Dan Alfei - Mansfield, LoanMERSE SAYS: I didnt understand them letting Jonjo Shelvey go to a rival. It was good money but its not £100m, which is what youll get if you stay up and finish bottom of the Premier League next year. I dont think theyve done clever business and theyve sold to the wrong people.TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR: D Andros Townsend was allowed to leave Tottenham In: Shilow Tracey - Ebbsfleet, UndisclosedOut: Andros Townsend - Newcastle, £12m, Kenny McEvoy - Released, Shaquile Coulthirst - Peterborough, Undisclosed, Federico Fazio - Sevilla, Loan, Milos Veljkovic - Werder Bremen, Undisclosed, Grant Ward - Rotherham, Loan, Alex Pritchard - West Brom, LoanMERSE SAYS: They had to let Andros Townsend go and theyve got a settled team so I understand the lack of signings. Its been hard for them because the same team has played virtually every week and if you bring someone in and they dont play then you could look at it and think its a waste of money -  but theyre a couple of injuries away from being blown away. I would probably have tried to get a world-class centre-half… but everybody is looking for them.WATFORD: C Mario Suarez made the move to Watford In: Abdoulaye Doucoure - Rennes, Undisclosed, Costel Pantilimon - Sunderland, Undisclosed, Nordin Amrabat - Malaga, £6.1m, Mario Suarez - Fiorentina, Undisclosed, Adalberto Penaranda - Granada, UndisclosedOut: Diego Fabbrini - Birmingham, £1.5m, Alessandro Diamanti - Loan cancelled, Connor Smith - AFC Wimbledon, Released, Uche Ikpeazu - Blackpool, LoanMERSE SAYS: I think at the moment, we have to wait and see what these new signings are like but theyve had a go and I like that from teams who are trying to stay in the league.WEST BROMWICH ALBION: A- Saido Berahino is still a West Brom player In: Sandro - QPR, Loan, Alex Pritchard - Tottenham, LoanOut: Anders Lindegaard - Preston, Loan, Adil Nabi - Peterborough, UndisclosedMERSE SAYS: I think theyve done all right, even though they havent done much business. People might think this is weird but Im going for A- simply for keeping Saido Berahino because he will score goals. Hes a very good player.WEST HAM UNITED: B+ Sam Byram signed for West Ham for a fee of £3.7m In: Sam Byram - Leeds, Undisclosed, Emmanuel Emenike - Fenerbahce, LoanOut: Matt Jarvis - Norwich, £2.5m, Diego Poyet - Charlton, Loan, Mauro Zarate - Fiorentina, £1.6m, Lewis Page - Cambridge United, Loan, Elliott Lee - Colchester, Loan, Stephen Hendrie - Southend, LoanMERSE SAYS: I do like Sam Byram, I think hes good for the future and he has come in at a good time with the injury to Carl Jenkinson. Ill give them a B+ because theyve brought in a couple of solid players.
