With financial rules seeming to limit what clubs can do this window, clubs may look to use their multi-club ownership models to assist them with player trading.

Crystal Palace co-owner John Textor owns the Eagles, Lyon, Botafogo and Molenbeek. Palace winger Malcolm Ebiowei has joined the latter and the Belgian club has already taken Tayo Adaramola on loan.

There could have been another deal done between the clubs. Towering Lyon midfielder Skelly Alvero, who has just joined Werder Bremen on loan with an obligation to buy, was also offered to Palace in this window.
