TOTTENHAM FAIL TO MAKE A SIGNINGTottenham’s pursuit of Jack Grealish ended in failure as they ended the window as the only Premier League club not to make a signing this summer. Spurs made a £25m bid for Grealish but were told he was not for sale by Aston Villa. Their failure to bring anyone in is the first time a Premier League club has not made a signing in the 15 years of the summer transfer window.
INGS BECOMES A SAINTIt seemed really unlikely at one point but Liverpool striker Danny Ings managed to beat the clock to sign for Southampton on a season-long loan. The deal gives Ings the option to make that a permanent move next summer.
