Quiz! How many of the 40 biggest Premier League summer transfer deadline day deals can you name?

Hold on to your yellow ties and purple ear-intruders: it’s the most costly deadline day deals that any summer has ever seen…

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

The transfer window became compulsory for European clubs in 2002/03 – and at that point, Sky Sports cyborg Jim White’s eyes snapped open as he awoke from his 3,000 years of cryosleep.

Of course, it took a while for it to became the exhausting circus that it is now. In Premier League terms, it was perhaps the arrival of a certain forward from Real Madrid to Manchester City for £32.5m in 2008. Or, two years before that, Argentina internationals Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano joining West Ham.

That jaw-dropping move isn’t in this quiz as... well, did they ever actually sign properly for the Hammers or was it some elaborate loan? We never quite figured it out – but the below were definitely, 100%, Jim White-screaming, summer deadline day signings. The 40 biggest up to 2017, no less.

We’ve given you the fee, the clubs involved and the player position. Eight minutes are on the clock – and we’d love it if you let us know how you got on @FourFourTwo (we’ll retweet the best scores, if you don’t give answers away) and then challenged some pals too.
