Italy's Serie A followed suit with the Premier League last year with a self-imposed early deadline the day before the start of the season and will do so again for 2019/20.

Hope he knuckles down and makes the most of his talent.


“......Thank you to everyone who's helped me get this far, the learning process never stops and I'm excited to continue at @VitoriaSC1922

Looks about as excited as Lennon did to end up at Everton.

Don’t know what to make of this one, but have to assume he was not quite good enough in the end.
