Kompany: Toffees Are Transfer Winners

Injured Manchester City skipper, Vincent Kompany, cast a keen eye over transfer deadline day from the treatment table.

After the window slammed shut and he had run the rule over the wheeling and dealing of City’s Premier League rivals, Kompany concluded on Twitter: “Arguably the hardest year to win the Premier League. All teams have strengthen(sic). I live for challenges like this! This is exciting.”

With a note of caution in his appraisal, Kompany commented on the record Arsenal signing that has the EPL buzzing.

“[Mesut] Ozil is an amazing signing!” he admitted.

But despite the Ozil’s quality arrival at the Emirates, Kompany suggests that Everton have emerged as the deadline day winners, after they managed to secure the loan signings of striker Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea, and midfielder Gareth Barry from City.

Kompany has played alongside Barry for club and Lukaku for country, and so he is well-placed to suggest that they will have a major impact for the Toffees, for little financial outlay, this season.

“Everton made two great signings in Barry and Romelu Lukaku. Clever piece of business. Arguably the best deals of this transfer window,” Kompany commented.

“Ozil is an amazing signing! My point though: Everton getting two great players at no cost, that's what I call "a great piece of business."

Meanwhile, Kompany has wished his fellow Belgian international Marouane Fellaini well on his transfer from Everton to Manchester United.

But he has warned the midfielder to expect a hard time when they clash in the Manchester derby.

“Congratulations to Maroune Fellaini,” the City hard-man tweeted.

“Any countryman doing well, I'm happy for. So now we will be neighbours. Careful I can be quite noisy…”
