    Harrison Reed - Southampton - DMF/MF **** Bought for £8m ? Some are reporting £6m.
    This is the player everyone wanted to happened after a good loan season for us.

    Antonee Robinson - Wigan - DF(LB) **** Bought for approx £1.6m - £1.9m
    Young upcoming full back. Has played a few games and looks good.

    Lemina - Southampton - CM - **** Initial Loan with buy clause.
    Not sure why we bought him in, but probably good cover.

    Alphonse Areola -PSG - GK **** Signed on Loan for the season with option to Buy
    Has the reputation of being a good keeper, but has mainly been a second GK for Champions League teams.

    Kenny Tete
    - Lyon - RB - Bought for €3.2m and Lyon will receive 10% of any future transfer fee if it is over €10m.
    Have been impressed with him in the few games he played but is now injured. Should be back in October some time hopefully.

    Ola Aina - Torino - RB/WB Signed on a year-long loan with an option to buy at the end of the season
    Another squad player, can't see him being the first choice over Tete

    Ademola Lookman RB Leipzig F/W Signs on 1 year Loan
    Good signing, if he can have consistent performances in the Premier, might be the signing of the window.

    Joachim Andersen - CB - Lyon Signs on Loan Till June 2021 for €1m + €1m bonus if stay in Premier No Buy-on clause
    Needs to find the form he had at Sampdoria and Twente, reputation of being a good Center Back, but is now injured and may be out till December.

    Tosin Adarabioyo - CB - Manchester City - Signs a 3 year Deal + 1. Fee understood to be £1.5m plus add-ons - 20% of any sell on
    Loaned out by City a lot, played well at Blackburn last season, he decided to not sign his new contract after City bought Ake. Needs to kick start his career.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek MF - Chelsea - Season long Loan
    Another Chelsea player who seems to have been blocked from 1st team by big spending signings.
    Hope he does well, has shown great potential in the past.

    Kongolo - CB - Huddersfield Last minute buy for undisclosed fee but thought to be £2m
    Last minute down to the wire signing for a player who has been out injured and was on loan to us last season but only played 2 games before an injury ruled him out.

    For me most of the signing are a gamble, so far Reed, Lookman, Robinson, Tete have shown they could be good signings, the rest need more time.
    Disappointed we didn't get another Striker as back up for Mitrovic in case of injury.

    Robinson looks a bargain.

    Adarabioyo looked good on Sunday, I thought Tete looked like he could be handy too. Lookman is different gravy.

    Given how badly it looked to be going at one point I’m actually pretty happy with the window. But let’s wait and see...

    Well if nothing else least you won't have the burden of big money players at the club if the worse happens but you looked good against Sheffield United and could have won whilst at Wolves there were chances I think.

    Shame 2 of those players are now injured - you need better luck than that!

    Things looked better last 2 games, still a bit disjointed. Would like to see Tete take the place of Cavaleiro when he is injury free, Aina and Tete should give better defensive cover to each other, both are Wing Backs.

    Where on Earth does this leave Jean Michel Serri? Amazing that your record signing isn't even registered in the squad.

    Seri made the decision he didn't want to play for Fulham so Parker has obliged.
    He was on loan at Galatasary last season with an option to buy. But they wanted another loan.
    So Fulham put him up for sale, his brother who is his agent said Inter Milan wanted him so Fulham / Seri turned down the loan to Galatasary, but then Conte got in Vidal and dropped his interest, leaving Seri looking for a club. To quote his brother “Fulham know that Jean Michael would not want to stay another season.” His brother didn't find a club for him willing to buy.
