HOLD ONTO YOUR HATS ... IT'S ONE OF DANIEL LEVY'S BUSIEST DAYS FO THE YEAR ... YES ... IT'S TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY !!  
MEHSTG will be updating you on signings as they happen until the window closes.

SIGNINGS

IN  : - 
At last, Ryan Sessegnon is a Spurs player after completing his move from Fulham on a five year deal with an option for an additional year.  The deal is costing Tottenham GBP25 million which could rise to GBP30 million with add-ons.  Giovani Lo Celso has joined the club and will b eon laon for this season, with an option to make the transfer permanent next summer.

OUT : -  Cameron Carter-Vickers has joined Stoke City for the rest of the season on loan and Josh Onomah has left to join Fulham on a three year contract as part of the swap deal for Sessegnon.

RUMOURS : -  BBC Sport are rumouring that Spurs will sign Giovani Lo Celso on loan for a season with an option to buy next summer, which allows Real Betis to take the loan fee and reduce the permanent deal fee next year, thus reducing the amount they have to pay Paris Saint Germain, who have a 20% sell-on clause.  This will apparently free up some cash for Spurs as well, to make other signings.  We will see !  ...  The Evening Standard have reported that Juventus are so keen to get rid of Paulo Dybala, that they are contributing a lump sum to ease his departure and this would go towards off-setting some of his salary, although image rights still appear to be an issue to overcome before 17.00  ...  Cameron Carter-Vickers is rumoured to be on his way to Stoke City on a season long loan  ...  Juventus appear to have pulled out of the deal to sell Paulo Dybala, as they have not got a replacement for the Argentinean striker, although Italian media claim the deal could go ahead as a loan, with Dybala retaining image rights ...  Cameron Carter-Vickers is said to be close to signing for Stoke City for a fee of GBP6 million or a season long loan depending on who you believe ...  Ryan Sessegnon's move could cost Spurs GBP30 million with Josh Onomah being part of that going the other way to Craven Cottage  ...  Watford were "strongly" interested in signing Danny Rose, but Tottenham rejected an offer from the Hornets  ...  Sky Sports reported that the Sessegnon move nearly failed to go through, because Fulham wanted to sign Chelsea defender Michael Hector, but because of Financial Fair Play, they needed the deal with Spurs to be completed.  Because of a delay in finalising the transfer, it was too late for Fulham to complete Hector's move and the Fulham chairman did consider keeping Sessegnon and risking him running his contract down to leave for free ...

EX-SPURS : -   Former midfielder Massimo Luongo has left QPR to join Sheffield Wednesday and another former midfielder - John Bostock - has joined Nottingham Forest on loan from French side Toulouse..

RUMOURS : -  Well, today things are SOOOOO much clearer !!  Philippe Coutinho is not coming, as he didn't want to join Spurs and Barcelona wanted a permanent deal and not a loan.  Decent player, but I thought he always under-whelmed a little.  Giovani Lo Celso is coming barring some last minute disaster, as Spurs have agreed a fee of GBP55 million with Real Betis plus add-ons for the Argentine midfielder.  Rumour is that we are still in for Bruno Fernandes of Sporting Lisbon and that Christian Eriksen won't be going to Manchester United, as he had talks with them, but they feel he would prefer a move to Europe, with Atletico Madrid interested.  The Daily Mail said Eriksen withdrew from the talks with United out of respect for Spurs and that he would not sign for another English team.  A deal for Fulham left-sided player Ryan Sessegnon has been agreed and should be announced tomorrow.  A move for Juventus striker Paulo Dybala seems to be moving in the right direction, with only image rights delaying a finalisation of the deal that would cost Spurs GBP64.4 million.  Or maybe his wage demands of GBP300,000 a week might provide a step too far for Daniel Levy to agree the transfer.  With Serge Aurier interesting Paris Saint Germain and other French clubs, Spurs could move to bring in a replacement, with Juan Foyth's injury limiting Mauricio Pochettino's options in that position.  Yousef Atal of OGC Nice is the favourite name popping up as a player Tottenham might sign to fill that slot in the squad.  Crystal Palace and Southampton are trying to sign Kyle Walker-Peters, but with that right back position thinly covered, it is unlikely that Tottenham will let him leave.  Another right back possibility is SSC Napoli's Albanian international Elseid Hysaj, who has been priced at GBP23 million by his club.

RUMOURS : -  OK ... so I am confused.  Some stories claimed we had agreements for Giovani Lo Celso and Bruno Fernandes, while others claimed there was still daylight between the priced offered and the price their clubs were holding out for.  Then, blink for a microsecond and we are suddenly favourites to sign Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona (initially on loan for a season with an option to buy) and have agreed a GBP64.4 million fee with Juventus for Paulo Dybala (with terms yet to be agreed with the player).  Boy, what a turn around and this is without a reported GBP30 million deal for Ryan Sessegnon supposedly going through with Josh Onomah going the other way in a separate transfer.  Manchester United will try and cash in on the surfeit of midfielders we will possess and offer a reduced price for Christian Eriksen than one Daniel Levy might have been hoping for of around GBP60 million.  The Metro also run a rumour that Manchester United are interested in signing Fernando Llorente, whose contract with Spurs expired a month or so ago.  One website reckons Serge Aurier is in talks to return to Paris Saint Germain, which would be an odd move for the French champions, but at this stage of the window nothing is that surprising.  Such a move would leave the club very light at right back and a replacement would have to be lined up to cover for the Ivory Coast international's departure.

FIRST TEAM : -  Juan Foyth will be out of action until September because of an ankle ligament injury he picked up in the game against Bayern Munich last week.  Jan Vertonghen said he is happy at Spurs, but has not had any discussion with the club about a new contract.

RUMOURS : -  Christian Eriksen is said to be close to a GBP60 million move to Manchester United, while Spurs are closing on a GBP54 million (plus GBP6 million add-ons) deal to sign Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis.   Troy Parrott is being linked with a season long loan to Charlton Athletic, while Juan Foyth's injury has prompted Tottenham to renew their interest in OGC Nice right back Yousef Atal, who might be available for around GBp34 million .   Talks between Spurs and Fulham are continuing to seal a deal for Ryan Sessegnon, with Josh Onomah looking increasingly likely to be a part of the agreement to bring the left back to White Hart Lane.

STADIUM  : -  Spurs have been granted planning permission by Haringey Council tol add seats to the North and South stands to take the ground's capacity to 62,214.

RUMOURS : -   Spurs are one of many clubs monitoring the situation of 21 year old CSKA Moscow striker Fedor Chalov, who would cost around GBP20 million.  Junior Firpo, the Real Betis left back, is said to be a 30 million Euros target for Spurs, Real Madrid and Liverpool according to the local press in Sevilla.  A deal worth GBP48 million is reportedly ready to go for AS Roma's 21 year old midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo, who had said he wanted to stay in Italy, but is now said to be ken to move to Tottenham in a deal that would be made up of Toby Alderweireld (25 million Euros) and 20 million Euros cash.  It is believed that the Serie A club have made a cheeky GBP18 million offer for the Belgian defender, which unsurprisingly has been rejected.  The Spanish media are thinking that Giovani Lo Celso could be about to complete his move to Spurs, with Real Betis believed to be ready to spend GBP30 million on Olympique Lyonnais midfielder Nabil Fekir as his replacement.
