Spurs fans in Twitter meltdown after the club fails to make any summer signings

Tottenham became the first Premier League club to not sign a single player in a summer transfer window since its introduction in 2003, and their fans on Twitter went into meltdown as it slammed shut.

Spurs have built a new stadium this summer on the same site as the old White Hart Lane. Chairman Daniel Levy initially claimed that this wouldn’t have an impact on the transfer budget, but after the window closed manager Mauricio Pochettino had blamed the stadium and Brexit for the lack of activity.

The North London side had been heavily linked with Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and had a £25m bid rejected before Villa stated that he was not for sale at any price. Crucially though, the club did confirm that Pochettino, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son all signed new long-term contracts this summer.

With Son missing most of August for the Asian Games though and Harry Kane’s backup still the faltering Fernando Llorente, many Spurs fans felt that they missed their chance to close the gap on Manchester City and challenge for the title.
