Christophe Dugarry, Jonathan Woodgate: The January Transfer Window 10 Years On (PICTURES)

Posted: Updated:

Tomorrow, if you're tuning in, every Sky Sports News presenter will tell you it is the 10th anniversary of the January transfer window. Jim White, in those you-can't-miss-'em adverts, will be "having a party", albeit not Frank Gallagher style.

January transfer deadline day in 2003 wasn't very dramatic. A friend, bunking off from school, sorry, missing school because he was unwell, told me Rufus Brevitt had signed for West Ham United.

It wasn't quite that bad. The mesmeric Christophe Dugarry arrived, Leeds United continued their fire sale and Middlesbrough became the only club to sign two strikers but become less potent.

We take a trip back in time to remember some of those sold in the winter of 2003.
