The transfer deadline day is one of the most exciting days of the year for football fans and this year was no exception.
There were several bizarre deals before the summer transfer window deadline ended on Wednesday with David Luiz making a high-profile return to Chelsea and controversial striker Mario Balotelli ending his Premier League misery by joining Ligue 1 side Nice on loan.
These moves were followed by Arsenal injury-prone midfielder Jack Wilshere moving to Bournemouth, and these moves alone were enough to produce some hilarious posts on Twitter.
Here’s a look at some of the tweets about Premier League clubs’ frantic transfer deadline day business:
Balotelli. Give him 6 months at Nice, then an "ambitious" Championship club, etc etc.— Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) August 31, 2016
Probably a good thing that Bournemouth no longer play at the Fitness First Stadium. #Wilshere— Mark Ogden (@MarkOgden_) August 31, 2016
Balotelli on a free is still paying over the odds by Nice.— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) August 31, 2016
David Luiz is back. Which means I can play my "things in the garden that look like PL players" game again. pic.twitter.com/H9jMxwkNgm— Caroline Short (@CarolineMShort) August 31, 2016

Lastly, a tweet that described the transfer deadline day perfectly:
#deadlineday is just like coursework at university know you should have it done way before but still end up finishing it on the last day— Alex Cardoe (@AlexCardoe) August 31, 2016
