If there was a prize given for the best transfer window then Wolves would be right up there. Keeping Ruben Neves is a good effort too!

Lets see how all these guys settle in before declaring a success.

Valencia had this setup with Mendes and it started out really well but it quickly imploded because players didn't give a toss about the club and were just always looking at the next move.

Been a very ballsy summer from them and their owners but considering how dominant they were last season in the Championship did they really need to change much?

Big movers on deadline day are Everton

Everton sign Mina from Barca for £30m
Everton also take Andre Gomes on a season long loan from Barca
Everton sign Bernard on a free transfer afer his contract at Shakthar expired.

Spurs fail to sign anyone in this window none of the big 6 sign anyone as Chelsea concluded their business yesterday.

Fulham sign Joe Bryan from Villa
Fulham sign Keeper Sergio Rico on loan from Sevilla.

Non-Prem Stoke signed Sam Clucas had been linked to Wolves.

Still time for late announcements but no big rumours running around.

Credit really has to go to Arsenal, West Ham, Liverpool and Everton the first 3 got deals done and got them done early addressing weaknesses in the squad Everton did the same but had to wait until the last minute to get them over the line.

Bernard on a free is a great bit of business by Everton, he perhaps hasn’t lived up to the hype when he first emerged on the scene but is still a fine little player. Really impressed by Everton’s business right now.

Vietto to Fulham on loan is also a stand out today. Fulham have done some very good business. A lot of the so called smaller clubs have done good this summer, I don’t think there is gonna be as many gimme games as in previous years.

Yeah haven’t followed his career in Donetsk but he was expected to be a big talent when he emerged and most people though he made a smart move going to Shaktar as they have a great reputation for developing players from Brazil.

Great chance for him to relaunch his career.

Think Everton have made some smart moves in last 2 windows after the shambles last summer.

Digne
Mina
Bernard
Gomes
Richarlison

Tosun
Walcott

Pickford

Coleman Keane Mina Digne

Gomes Gueye

Walcott Siggurdson Richarlison

Tosun

On paper that’s a strong starting XI if the new guys settle plenty of speed and technical ability if Silva can drill them well on shape we might see the new Everton we thought was emerging last summer.
