jim white reflects on memorable transfer deadline stories, including torres' move to chelsea and kaka's sighting at seven sisters

Chelsea’s signing of Fernando Torres, Peter Odemwingie’s infamous appearance at QPR, Kaka being spotted at Seven Sisters, and Jim White recalling the best transfer deadline stories were some of the highlights discussed on the Mail Sports Kicking LIVE show.

During the show, Torres’ move from Liverpool to Chelsea was revisited. The Spanish striker’s transfer in January 2011 made headlines as he became the then most expensive British transfer in history, with Chelsea paying £50 million for his services. Despite high expectations, Torres struggled to replicate his form at Chelsea and left the club in 2015.

Another memorable transfer deadline moment discussed on the show was Peter Odemwingie’s ill-fated attempt to join QPR in 2013. The Nigerian forward arrived at Loftus Road unannounced, hoping to secure a move from West Bromwich Albion. However, the deal fell through, leaving Odemwingie stranded and becoming a subject of ridicule.

The show also touched upon Kaka’s surprise appearance at Seven Sisters in North London during the transfer window in 2013. The Brazilian midfielder, who was playing for AC Milan at the time, was rumored to be a target for several Premier League clubs. While no transfer materialized, his unexpected presence caused a stir among fans and media alike.

Finally, host Jim White shared some of his favorite transfer deadline stories from over the years. White, known for his energetic coverage of transfer windows, recalled memorable moments such as Dimitar Berbatov’s last-minute move to Manchester United in 2008 and Robinho’s surprise switch to Manchester City in the same year.

The Mail Sports Kicking LIVE show provided an entertaining look back at some of the most intriguing transfer deadline moments in football history. These stories serve as a reminder of the excitement and unpredictability that surrounds the closing stages of the transfer window.
