The best transfer deadline day jokes of 2017

Enjoyable end to the window.

Preparing a handshake for one of the many deals that formed the basis for the summer 2017 transfer deadline day jokes

These were the best 2017 summer transfer deadline day jokes after an enjoyable end to the window with several big-money moves falling through as well as being completed on the final day.

The biggest deal of the day turned out to be Kylian Mbappe to Paris St-Germain on a season-long loan from Monaco, with the French club holding an option to make the deal permanent for a fee believed to be around £165.7m.

But the real fun was to be found on Twitter…

With the window now officially slammed shut, these are the best transfer deadline day jokes of 2017:

Should've announced Aurier first so I could tweet 'we've signed three players, how about a Foyth?' You manage to mess everything up.

Fair play to Ross Barkley. Just wanted a free medical check-up, he's played Chelsea and everyone for a bloody fool. One nil to Ross.
