I honestly don't think you could argue against Welbeck being right up there.

During the Gillingham days we signed a player on a free in the summer window and then sold him for money in the same window without him ever playing for The Albion. unfortunately I can't remember his name or the other two clubs involved. Can someone help? It was very good business though.

Paul Holsgrove to Hibs in 1998/99?

If Bruno was indeed a free this has to be the answer.

Sidwell popped in to my head, though. Did well for us in what effectively was a roll of the dice.
