Every transfer deadline day, Sky Sports News reporters stand outside Premier League training grounds and are subject to abuse by the fans waiting for possible late signings to arrive at their respective clubs.

Usually it’s the odd crushing of the reporter or the one swear word or two being broadcast on live TV.

What happened to Alan Irwin outside Everton’s Finch Farm training ground though was some next level Deadline Day fun.

While trying to announce updates on the possible signing of Manchester United’s Tom Cleverley to Everton, one fan decided to wave around a purple sex toy behind him before attempting to tickle his ear with it.

He was escorted away by security soon after but it begs the question, how on earth is anyone going to top that next transfer deadline day?

We’ll just have to wait and see.
