Papiss Demba Cisse, Bobby Zamora Among Big-Money Transfers in Muted January Transfer Window (Podcast)For those expecting big-name soccer players to switch teams for large sums of cash, the January 2012 transfer window was a massive letdown. It was more notable for the money saved and the players who remained with their current teams than for anything else.

There were some comings and goings, and we have a comprehensive roundup of the transfer action at Premier League clubs. We start with Liverpool FC, and work our way down the league standings. Hear which teams helped (and hurt) themselves as the 2011-12 season heads toward its run-in.

Papis Demba Cisse (to Newcastle) and Bobby Zamora (to Queens Park Rangers) were two of the most expensive signings, and a couple of former LFC players made news as well. Find out what effect macro forces like Financial Fair Play and this summer's European Championship had on the midseason transfer market.

NESN.com's Marcus Kwesi O'Mard and English soccer journalist Richard Buxton discuss all the transfer news in the NESN.com podcast.
