Ins and outs at Old Trafford- January transfer window round up

This January transfer window was in stark contrast to the summer one when six new arrivals left United fans licking their lips in anticipation.

As expected, Darren Fletcher moves on to pastures new with the best wishes of everyone at the club.
Darren has joined up with Tony Pulis at West Bromwich Albion on a free transfer after his move to West Ham broke down.

Fletcher made 342 appearances for United, winning five Premier League titles in a 12-year career at Old Trafford after coming through the youth academy.
He was the longest serving United player in the current squad when he left Old Trafford.
All the best for the future Darren! (Fletcher 5-0 Gerrard) 

Victor Valdes joined United on an 18 month contract earlier in January and has played for the Under 21 side, with his senior debut possibly coming tonight in the FA Cup replay.

Wilfried Zaha has made his loan move to Crystal Palace permanent- a player who was Fergie's last signing and arrived with great promise but leaves having never been given a chance in the United side under David Moyes.

But if there was an award for "Oddest transfer of the season" then United would surely win it as the Reds brought in 21 year old defender Andy Kellett (no I've never heard of him either).

Kellett has only made four appearances for Bolton and his first senior league start for the Trotters only came last Tuesday when he played 51 minutes in a 4-2 reverse at Rotherham.

Kellett had previously spent three months on loan at Plymouth and moves to Old Trafford in exchange for youth graduate Saidy Janko who goes the other way on loan until the end of the season. 

Another Reds youngster, Jesse Lingard- who played in van Gaal's first game in charge (the 2-1 defeat to Swansea on the opening day) joins promotion chasing Derby, also on loan until June.

Anderson has left Old Trafford after eight years (and 105 appearances) and has signed for Internacionale in his native Brazil. 
Good luck at your new club Ando!
