In a move created to end disruption and allow English clubs to focus on their football, Premier League clubs had agreed to close the summer transfer window before the start of the 2018-19 season.

Tottenham became the first side in Premier League history not to make a summer signing since the transfer window began in 2003.

In an abbreviated trading period when English top-flight clubs collectively spent more than 1.2 billion pounds, there was one anomaly by the close of business on Thursday.

The build-up to a new season always brings exciting talking points with fans and the media debating how new players might fare and what the upcoming nine months of Premier League football will bring.

His performances for his club also earned him a spot in Brazil's first team and he went on to play every minute of Brazil's 2018 World Cup campaign.

Tottenham, who have achieved three consecutive top-three finishes under their highly regarded manager Mauricio Pochettino, are still paying for a lavish state-of-the-art new stadium estimated at over £800m and it would appear the mounting cost prevented the club splashing the cash on new players at the same time.

Last season's top-two teams spent nothing on Thursday.

Spaniard Kepa Arrizabalaga never made it on the pitch for Spain in Russian Federation but Chelsea broke the transfer record for a goalkeeper by meeting an 80 million euro (USD93 million) buyout clause from Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday as a replacement for Thibaut Courtois.

Leicester were the highest earners from player sales with 60 million euros generated from the sale of Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City, followed by Newcastle with 44 million euros and Watford with 40 million euros.

Everton completed the treble-signing of Brazil winger Bernard from Shakhtar Donetsk, along with Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes.

Last season he made 30 appearances for Freiburg and scored one goal.
