sport news How did the January new boys fare on their Premier League debuts this weekend?

The winter window slammed shut on Friday night but not before a number of stars could complete their January moves to a Premier League club in the nick of time.

stole the show with the £68million acquisition of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting while Tottenham brought in Steven Bergwijn from PSV for £27m.

But how did those debutants get on this weekend? Here, Sportsmail reviews the performances of those who turned out for their new clubs this weekend.

Danny Rose (Newcastle)

Crunched through a couple of challenges after getting a rapturous welcome from the home crowd.

While Steve Bruce will be relieved to be able to call upon such a safe pair of hands in what has been a problem area, he will be looking to call upon him on a more regular basis, as opposed to the 11-minute cameo he was afforded on Saturday. 

Although the highlight for him was perhaps the chant, 'Danny Rose, he loves fish and chips'. 5/10

Valentino Lazaro (Newcastle)

Neat and tidy on the right but offered little threat in the final third, much like his team-mates before his introduction.

Was given over half an hour to affect the game but struggled to that, along with most of those in black and white on a frustrating afternoon. 

Will get more of a chance going forward to prove his worth as the Magpies look to kick on up the table. 5/10

Sander Berge (Sheffield United)

Sheffield United broke their transfer record for the fifth time in eight months to pluck the 6ft 5in Norwegian from Genk's seemingly never-ending talent factory. 

Thrown straight into the action on the right of the Blades' midfield three in place of John Lundstram, Berge certainly made his physical present felt, bundling over Wilfried Zaha and scraping a stud across Luka Milivojevic's nose when challenging for a high ball. The youngster made more tackles than anyone else on the pitch. 

Chris Wilder said Berge - who already has a song from the Blades faithful - fitted in 'fantastically well' although admitted it will take time for the 21-year-old to get up to Premier League speed.
