Description

Football transfer deadline day. It conjures images of countdown clocks, TV presenters talking a mile-a-minute, sports reporters outside training grounds and microphones through Harry Redknapp's car window... 


But what goes on behind the scenes? How does a transfer actually happen – from start to finish? How many of the rumours actually have any truth in them? 


This week, broadcaster Georgie Frost and assistant editor Lee Boyce are joined by sports lawyer and author of Done Deal, Daniel Geey.


We ask some of the key questions: Who holds the balance of power? Are agents really just greedy money grabbers? How much work goes on behind the scenes that we don’t see? How do you value players?

And why can't Zinedine Zidane just get rid of Gareth Bale? 


Aaron Wan-Bissaka for example has joined Manchester United for £50million. Has that huge sum now just become a normal fee for good players, not exceptional ones – and where does it end?


We also talk about how social media is shaping the modern day footballer – and what Brexit could actually mean for the Premier League in England.
