One year on - How did the top 10 deals from deadline day 2012 fare?

Pienaar SA

Bolton Wanderers, Manchester City, Fulham, QPR, West Brom, and Everton all swooped on deadline day last season hoping for instant results. How did they fare?

In an attempt to gauge how successful some of yesterday's big deadline day moves may be, we've taken a look at how last year's fared, with a look back at our top 10 from one year ago.

Hit, miss, or maybe?

Marvin Sordell to Bolton

Marvin Sordell's move should have been a stroke of genius, instead it has been baffling the way it has all worked out. The highly rated England youth striker barely featured for Bolton and had virtually no say in their attempt to avoid relegation, next to be seen missing sitters for Britain's Olympic team in the summer. Now his Bolton side sit below Watford in the Championship, the club he departed, and Sordell was last heard of asking for rehabilitation for his addition to Twitter. MISS

David Pizarro to Manchester City

This was always going to be a short-term loan deal for the then 32-year-old Chilean, and even while at the club a permanent move never appeared on the cards. He played five Premier League games making one assist, but did not feature at all in City's final title push and is now back at Roma. MISS

Pavel Pogrebnyak to Fulham

'The Pog' was, in the short-term at least, a sensational loan signing for Fulham, instantly adapting to Premier League life. He scored five goals in his first three games, including a hat-trick against Wolves, but would net just once in his final 11. He ended up snubbing Fulham to sign with Reading this season where he has scored five goals in 19 league games, but overall his transfer to Fulham was a success. HIT

Liam Ridgewell to West Brom

When Birmingham were relegated in 2011, it was perhaps surprising they managed to hang onto key man Ridgewell as long as they did. He clinched a deadline day switch to West Brom and has become an integral part of their defence. He has made 18 appearances for the Baggies this season, and is a dependable Premier League defender. HIT

Sebastien Bassong to Wolves

Bassong was surplus to requirements at Spurs, and went to Wolves in search of first team football. Within a fortnight Mick McCarthy was sacked and the hapless Terry Connor was left manning the fort. Wolves collapsed to a dismal relegation and Bassong was powerless to do anything about it, sealing a permanent deal to Norwich in August. MISS

Bobby Zamora to QPR

Bobby Zamora completed his switch from Fulham to QPR on deadline day last year, and has enjoyed moderate success, without ever really recapturing his Fulham form in a quite unstable QPR side. He scored on his debut against Wolves, but only netted twice for the club in total last season. He has four in 14 this season, and remains a solid option in attack, but the number of frontmen at QPR and strikers they were linked with on deadline day shows Zamora has been unable to make the spot his own and is now clearly second fiddle to Loic Remy, but he still may yet play an important part in keeping them up. MAYBE

Ryo Miyaichi to Bolton

Teenage talent Ryo Miyaichi signed for Bolton on loan from Arsenal and had an instant impact. In his opening month he was sensational, but sadly faded in the crucial last month as the relegation battle intensified and was unable to influence the outcome. Overall we'd count him as a hit as he certainly enhanced his reputation, making his Premier League debut, even if his loan spell at Wigan this season has been disappointing. HIT

Ravel Morrison to West Ham

Many said Manchester United would long regret letting this prodigious talent leave, but Morrison has done nothing to make United feel that way so far. He couldn't force his way into the West Ham side as they were promoted, and Sam Allardyce sent the youngster on loan to Birmingham for the season, where he has similarly struggled to make an impact. MISS

Steven Pienaar to Everton

Steven Pienaar's loan to Everton was one of the deals of the season last time out, with the South African having a sensational impact on his return to Goodison Park. He scored four goals and provided seven assists for the Toffees, including a goal in the 4-4 at Old Trafford which led to United losing the title. As Tottenham faded, they were left wondering what might have been had they kept him. HIT

Danny Higginbotham to Nottingham Forest

It was adjudged Forest had picked up an absolute bargain in loaning Higginbotham, who had played a key part in getting Stoke to the FA Cup final a year before. A knee injury had curtailed that good fortune, and he only lasted a couple of months at The City Ground before injury struck again, ending his spell at Forest early, and the defender now plays for Sheffield United in League One.
