It was a steady deadline day for Tottenham, which saw them send Cameron Carter-Vickers on loan to Celtic, as well as mutually terminating the contract of Serge Aurier, but their big business was the signing of Emerson Royal from Barcelona.
Were you impressed with Tottenham's summer business?
However, he may not have arrived at Tottenham had the club progressed in their attempt to re-sign former defender Walker-Peters, who was on Tottenham’s radar before they struck up a deal to sign the former Barcelona full-back, according to The Telegraph.
What have these Tottenham fans been saying?
“AH THIS CLUB MAN…”
“This has Steve Hitchen written all over it…..”
“He’s defo improved but nowhere near good enough good on Fabio”
“God imagine the meltdown Spurs FT would have had if we brought him back”
“That’s mad. Wouldn’t have said no, was superb for Saints last year.”
“We really got the worst scouts then..”
“Hitchen in the mud”
However, he appears to have a fight on his hands for starting games this campaign, having been handed a starting spot just once this season in the Premier League.
In terms of Tottenham, their signing of Emerson appears to be an astute piece of business as following the termination of Aurier’s contract, it brings in another full-back to provide competition for Japhet Tanganga, who has started all three league games.
