Cape Town - Roberto Martinez and Everton showed that "smaller" clubs can stand up to the rich clubs in the transfer window.
Everton's transfers rated: 8/10
Bringing Gerard Deulofeu and Aaron Lennon back to the club was good work but keeping hold of Stones was the key transfer work done by Everton this season.
In: Tom Cleverley (Manchester United, free), Gerard Deulofeu (Barcelona £4.3m), Ramiro Funes Mori (River Plate, £9.5m), Leandro Rodriguez (River Plate Montevideo, £500,000), Mason Holgate (Barnsley, £1m), Aaron Lennon (Spurs, £4.5m)
Out: Antolin Alcaraz (released), Sylvain Distin (released), Luke Garbutt (Fulham, loan), Chris Long (Burnley, undisclosed), Francisco Junior (Wigan Athletic, loan)
Best bit of business: Not caving to Chelsea (and John Stones' transfer request) and keeping hold of arguably their most prized asset.
Worst bit of business: It's difficult to find one, but perhaps it comes in not signing another creative player for the number 10 role.
