It’s a big day in the transfer market, with some huge fees having been paid by Tottenham’s rivals.
Stones will be replaced at Everton by the £12m signing of Ashley Williams. Meanwhile, Spurs fans have been feeling pretty smug, as they sit back and admire our own talented squad, that was assembled at bargain bucket prices. Here’s how they reacted to the day the transfer market went nuts.

Someone at Tottenham should basically be knighted for getting Alderweireld, Alli, Dier, Eriksen and Lloris for less than £50m combined.

Man City paid £50 million for John Stones. Play the ball over the top of him and hes worth 5th of the price. Toby Alderweireld a class above

In a world where Pogba costs £89m… we managed to snatch up Dele Alli and Eric Dier for a combined £9m.

Ashley Williams is costing Everton 12million meanwhile we only paid £11.5million for Toby Alderweireld, Daniel Levy really is genius.#THFC

Tottenham signed Dier, Alli and Alderweireld for £20.5 million & Stones is worth £50 million, yeah okay mate

Stones + Pogba = £136m
Alderweireld + Alli = £16m
Yet people still slate Levy for his transfer dealings? #THFC
