Well, that was quite an intense deadline day, wasn't it Spurs fans?

It looked like it was going to be one heck of a transfer window when Tanguy Ndombele was wrapped up nice and early, but as the summer went on the club dragged their heels and the France international remained their only proper signing until the final day of the window - Jack Clarke won't be seen in north London until 2020.

There's been hope of a new attacking midfielder all window long, with Real Betis' Giovani Lo Celso initially touted as the club's main target. The Argentine had fallen off the radar somewhat, but the 23-year-old had a medical after Tottenham agreed to match his asking price. The only bad thing for Spurs fans was just how long the club took to announce the deal, even though it looked imminent on Wednesday evening.

Come Thursday afternoon and fans were starting to get pretty grumpy. Still no official word from the club, but surely it's just around the corner...


(It wasn't a 3pm or 4pm announcement, sorry Luke)

It was all a bit much and ended up leaving fans in pain all day before confirming what was essentially a formality at the last second.

Finally, the deal was announced, and Tottenham fans could breathe easy before celebrating their new arrival.

Fans didn't have to wait long for their next arrival, with Ryan Sessegnon, who underwent his medical earlier in the day, confirmed barely half an hour later.

It's a deal which has flown under the radar for a number of reasons, but largely a combination of Tottenham's other targets (one guy from Juventus, specifically) and Sessegnon's underwhelming season with relegated Fulham last year.

Here's the angst to start with...


...followed by the joy...

Just in case you've been able to avoid social media over the last 24 hours, that 'one guy from Juventus' we mentioned about earlier is Paulo Dybala.

Yes, that Dybala.

To Tottenham.

(This summer really can just get in the bin, can't it.)

It's been a bit of a rollercoaster, but when fans went to sleep - or at least tried to doze off at some ungodly hour - it was full steam ahead on the hype train for Manchester United target Dybala to arrive in north London after Tottenham agreed to pay a €70m fee for his signature.


But that all changed when the move for Dybala got called off due to the player's complicated image rights - the same stumbling block which forced United to end negotiations.

Safe to say rival fans enjoyed that news a little bit more that Tottenham supporters. But at least no one instantly tweeted that video of Giorgio Chiel...

For goodness sake, Twitter!

Sorry Tottenham fans, but the most recent updates suggest Dybala isn't actually going to be moving to north London this summer after all.

Oh, and there was brief chat of Danny Rose leaving at the eleventh hour which fried even more heads, even though there turned out to be nothing to the story.

All in all, a pretty good window for Spurs. Ndombele, Lo Celso and Sessegnon all set for heavy first team involvement while Clarke features on loan at Leeds.

But still the nagging thought remains: what if they'd signed Dybala?
