Fantasy Premier League 2012/13: The transfer story so far - part 2

A couple of weeks have passed since the first incarnation of the transfer story and it’s about time for a younger better brother to stand up, so here it is… part 2!

With so many big name players still undecided where their future lies, at FPL Dugout we expect the next few weeks to be a transfer fest as the 20 Premier League teams fight it out for the world’s top talent. (Heskey is still available guys!)

With most fantasy drafts well under way, there’s no doubt the next few weeks will provide a few stick or twist moments within our squads.

Potential moves for Joe Allen, Andy Carroll, Robin van Persie, Luka Modric and surely Manchester City entering this season’s transfer market will merk the waters furthermore.

Whatever happens, here at FPL Dugout we will keep you up to date with all the latest fantasy football news, and I expect Premier League transfer story part 3 to be a belter!
