January transfer window proves quiet for City
The January transfer window has proven to be relatively quiet for Exeter City.
Manager Paul Tisdale has said in the past that it`s not a time of year that he likes to do deals and this season has proved no different.
The main transfer story to come out of St James` Park was Ryan Harley`s much talked about move away from the club. Eventually a deal was done with Championship side Swansea which involved Harley returning to the Grecians on loan until the end of the season.
Jamie Cureton and Bertie Cozic signed contract extensions until the end of the current campaign.
Elsewhere there has been significant movement on the goalkeeper front. Ben Hamer has joined on loan from Reading which has paved the way for Paul Jones to depart to join up with Peterborough United also on loan until the end of the season.
There was speculation over Liam Sercombe`s future. Rumours of interest from Wolves, Fulham, Preston, Sheffield Wednesday and even Chelsea had fans believing that Sercombe was heading away from the club but nothing materialised.
Finally, strikers Ben Watson and James Norwood have been sent out on loan to Bath City and Eastbourne Borough respectively and Joe Heath has had his stay at Hereford extended until the end of the season.
