[TRANSFER WATCH] The January transfer market closed with a whimper, not a bang, on Monday, reflecting the unwillingness of big European clubs, many of them with heavy debts, to spend in mid-season. In England, spending was limited to $50 million, down from $231 million in 2009 and a record low since the January market was introduced in 2003.

Monday's most notable deal was Irish star Robbie Keane's loan move from Tottenham to Scottish club Celtic.

The most expensive signing was England under-21 Adam Johnson's $11 million move from Middlesbrough to Manchester City.

West Ham signed a trio of strikers -- South African Benni McCarthy, Egyptian Mido and Brazilian Ilan.

Debt-ridden Portsmouth sold one keeper, Canadian Asmir Begovic, to Stoke City for $5 million but kept another, England's David James.

Wigan acquired England under-19 forward Victor Moses from Crystal Palace, another club with serious financial problems.  Moses had scored six goals in his last nine matches in the League Championship.

Two players just back from the Africa Cup of Nations left England. Cameroon midfielder Geremi joined Turkey's Ankaragucu from Newcastle, while Greek club Larissa signed Gabon forward Daniel Cousin on loan from Hull City.

In Italy, Brazilian midfielder Amantino Mancini joined AC Milan on loan from Inter Milan.

Dane Martin Jorgensen left Fiorentina to return home, where he will play for former club Aarhus.
