These were the best Everton jokes as Tottenham pipped them to the deadline day signing of Moussa Sissoko.

The France midfielder looked all set for Goodison Park but chose Spurs at the last minute in a dramatic twist.

There were echoes of the Willian saga when he looked set for Spurs before making a last-ditch switch to Chelsea.

Ronald Koeman’s Toffees had to settle for the loan signing of West Ham forward Enner Valencia.

Needless to say, there was no shortage of Everton jokes as they ‘signed’ Sissoko and were then gazumped:

Genuinely feels like Everton have signed the same calibre of player as previous Summers but decided to pay £30m for them instead of nothing.

£60million for Sissoko and Bolasie, the 2 most bang average players ever. Don't worry Everton, at least you don't have Enner Valenc…oh

Tottenham have come in and matched Everton's £30 milion bid for Sissoko.

It must be dead easy to run a football club.

Everton trying to replace Oumar Niasse with Enner Valencia is the equivalent of swapping Barry Chuckle for Paul Chuckle

THFC: 30 mill?
NUFC: Yeah, 5 £6 mill payments.
THFC: We can give you the lot now
NUFC: 5 payments
THFC: But..

@Everton Announce Valencia

Everton have just been outbid on their record signing.

This could be the most Everton thing to happen this week.
