All-time best XI of mid-season transfers

Cologne - Bundesliga clubs aren't known for splashing the cash during the January transfer window, but that's not to say there haven't been any notable mid-season additions made in Germany's top flight over the years.

Borussia Dortmund's signing of Matthias Sammer sparked back-to-back league title wins in 1994/95 and 1995/96 as well as a UEFA Champions League triumph in 1997, while more recently FC Bayern München's decision to let Mats Hummels join BVB is one that has come back to haunt them.
