Deadline day transfer news LIVE: Aubameyang Chelsea move CONFIRMED, Arthur Melo COMPLETES Liverpool deal – latest
Good morning footy fans
Spurs youngster Bryan Gil posted a cryptic social media message hinting he is unhappy at being denied a deadline day move.
The winger was expected to rejoin Valencia on loan for the season.
But Tottenham blocked Gil’s exit at the last moment after missing out on Leeds’ Dan James to Fulham.
Gil wrote, in Spanish, on social media: “Sometimes an old photo makes us value the moments where we were happiest and we didn’t realise.”
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola said worries over the fitness records of his four centre halves was behind his deadline day move for Manuel Akanji.
The Man City boss said: “We had four incredible centre backs before Manuel – but sometimes Ayme had tough injuries.
“He’s getting better but might be another month or month and a half. Nathan could not play recently with muscular problems.
“We had an opportunity to bring Manuel, with one year left in Dortmund. He’s got a lot of experience in Germany and Switzerland.
“He’s perfect for what we need, good in the build up, fast, we played against him for Dortmund.”
Finally, Brendan Rodgers has launched a blistering attack on Wesley Fofana’s advisers.
The centre-back aimed a swipe at the Leicester boss in his farewell message after joining Chelsea for £70million.
And Rodgers rapped: “I would say the post didn’t come from Wesley.
“I know that for sure because I’ve had other experiences where I had a message from Wesley, which I knew wasn’t from Wesley.
“So the post is probably a cheap shot towards the end from people and representatives other than him.”
