Less than a third of Huddersfield Town’s’ signings over the last five seasons have been made during the January transfer window.

But the John Smith’s Stadium club did smash their transfer record by bringing in striker Nahki Wells for £1.3m from Bradford City 12 months ago.

A total of 39 players were signed by Town between the opening of the summer window in 2009 and the closing of the winter window last year.

Eleven (28%) came in January and 28 in the summer.

Only players signed inside each window are included.

As well as Wells, Town’s winter signings include the likes of Joe Lolley, Harry Bunn, Kevin Kilbane, Murray Wallace and Danny Cadamarteri.

Of the 24 current Championship clubs, Rotherham United have signed the highest percentage of players in the winter window.

An astonishing 61% of their new players over the last five years made their way to South Yorkshire in January.

That’s followed by Charlton Athletic (40%), Millwall (39%) and Bournemouth (37%).

On sheer numbers alone, Fulham are the most prolific Championship club when it comes to the January window.

The Cottagers have signed a total of 20 players in the winter window over the last five seasons - 36% of their total.

Three other former Premier League clubs have signed 18 players in the winter window – Bolton Wanderers, Leeds United and Blackpool – while two have signed 17, Blackburn Rovers and Millwall.

Norwich City and Bournemouth appear to be the Championship sides most happy with their squads come January.

They have added just seven players each to their respective squads in the window over the last five seasons.
