In just over two weeks' time, when Christmas and New Years are over with, the January transfer window opens.
Ahead of that on Team 33, we spoke with The Transfer Market: The Inside Stories author Alan Gernon who has been speaking to key figures within the game including agents, players and clubs about what really goes on during the transfer windows and the months in between.
From players and their families struggling to settle to how FIFA deregulation has created a wild west situation where agents are concerned, the Irish author has been digging deep into an unstable market place.
