Many unexpected deals took place in the England premier league this summer which saw a lot of players leaving their team for another either on a permanent deal or on a basis of loan contract. However, few days to the start of the tournament, some transfers were surprisingly made between clubs and we at TMKONZEPT have made a list of the major deals among the deadline Transactions.
Ryan Sessegnon – Fulham to Tottenham – £25m
Per the announcement, Sessegnon has agreed a six-year deal with the north London club after making 35 Premier League appearances for Fulham last term.
The teenager was the first player from outside of the top division to be nominated for PFA Young Player of the Year award in 2017-18.
Sessegnon has spent much of his short career at left-back, but the progressive nature of his game has seen him feature up the field in the attack. He is expected to develop as a forward.
The player finished joint-top scorer on three goals at the 2017 European Under-19 Championship, with England winning the tournament for the first time.
Expectations were high for Sessegnon last term, and with Fulham breaking the bank on signings, the winger was expected to shine.
However, the prodigy only found the back of the net twice during the Premier League campaign, providing six assists. Fulham were relegated after a poor season, but Sessegnon is still young and expected to have a successful career
Andy Carroll – West Ham to Newcastle – undisclosed
Striker Carroll – who has played nine times for England, scoring two goals – joined West Ham on a season-long loan from Liverpool in August 2012 and the switch was made permanent the following summer in a £15m deal (€17m).
The 30-year-old’s time with the Hammers has been significantly disrupted by injuries, and he made only 12 Premier League appearances in 2018-19. Carroll’s overall record for the club is 33 goals in 126 league matches.
Danny Drinkwater – Chelsea to Burnley – loan
Drinkwater, who won the premier league title with Leicester City in 2015-16, joined Chelsea for £35m in 2017.
However, the 29-year-old has made just five league starts for the Blues and did not feature in the top flight last season. He was loan to Burnley till 6th of January 2020
