Deadline day transfers have over the years gained a reputation for their hectic nature.
Ghana international, Thomas Partey’s record transfer to Arsenal on deadline day, stole all the headlines in what was a topsy-turvy day of transfer activity.
The 27-year-old midfielder became the most expensive Ghanaian in Premier League history when he completed his £45m move from Atlético Madrid.
Partey has revealed how chaotic the move was, although he admitted his joy at the outcome.
“Until the last moment, I was not aware.” He told Arsenal Media.
“My agent told me the move was going to happen, I was so happy.
“I could not even sleep that night, it was a great feeling.”
Partey could make his debut for Arsenal when they face Manchester City on Sunday at the Etihad.
