Fans of FIFA are chomping at the bit as the January transfer window comes to a close and the January update release date edges closer.
As the window grows older more transfers are made between clubs, and a FIFA fan’s game becomes more and more out of date. This is an obvious frustration that leaves millions tearing their hair out as they frantically edit their game’s squads, trying to keep up.
This makes the day that FIFA releases the January update all the more special. It’s bigger than Christmas, really.
However, this year, EA Sports has taken the unprecedented step of releasing a number of high profile transfers early to appease the undoubted high number of disgruntled gamers all over the world.
This newest update, released on January 29, is the fourth update we’ve had already, and we’re not even in February yet! This is more like it, FIFA.
The biggest moves that have been updated so far include: Wilfried Bony, Fernando Torres, Christian Rodriguez, Jermain Defoe, Xherdan Shaqiri, Rasmus Elm and Florent Malouda.
Normally, and very frustratingly, we are forced to wait for up to a week after Big Ben strikes 12:00am on January 31 for the update to be released.
The winter window is a tad skewiff all over Europe this year as every major league’s transfer period ends at different times. This made the release date of the update very much uncertain.
Many expected it to arrive on February 7 but EA has already quashed those rumours by releasing these world stars early.
Here are the 10 biggest deals that have been released in the latest update. So you can buy FIFA Coins to get them, Their performance will not let you be disappointed!
10. Marco Djuricin

Previous Club: SK Sturm Graz
The Austrian is rebuilding his career after a difficult spell in Germany. 17 goals in 36 league games prompted Salzburg to splash the cash.
9. Darío Benedetto
Current Club: América
Previous Club: Tijuana
The rapid firing forward was simply too good for the middle of the Mexican league so a move to a higher levelled club was always on the cards. There’s little doubting that his goalscoring will continue.
8. Yannick Djaló
Current Club: Mordovia Saransk (loan)
Previous Club: Benfica
The one time Portugal international has had a storied career for date having represented both Benfica and their great rivals Sporting Lisbon. Having failed to make the grade at either club, he’s looking to settle in Russia with Mordovia.
