While we at Paddy Power can’t wait for the season to start, we’re also really looking forward the transfer window shutting just to stop the new craze sweeping football.
Yep, you’ve guessed it. It’s the new fad of s**t transfer announcement videos that has swept through the sport faster than rise of Corbynistas!

Enter Besiktas, who decided to join the party with an effort so bad it’s made us pine for the days when all you got was a photo of the player holding up his new jersey.
