The Telegraph have reported that West Brom have agreed a fee of £5m with Spurs to sign Federico Fazio.
Fazio struggled to adapt to Mauricio Pochettino’s high defensive line and saw himself become the fifth choice central defender this season as reinforcements were brought in. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the deal.

Fazio to West Brom for £5mil…? We literally have no transfer strategy do we?

Why have Tottenham accepted £5million for Fazio, when West Brom were willing to pay £8million for James Chester in the same window

Can't see Fazio going without Berahino coming the other way in some type of deal, seems like a Levy sort of deal too #COYS

Fazio to #WBA = all systems go for a 'you scratch my back, I scratch yours'!

Fazio will move and will probably turn out to be a decent acquisition. Doesn't fit out system unfortunately.

Only Christian Benteke (6.5) won more aerial duels per game in the Premier League last season than Federico Fazio (4.8) #WBA

Just texted my Spurs season ticket holder mate and asked about Fazio. The reply was 'He's a total liability'.
