Transfer Deadline Day Buzzword Bingo hails ‘last minute business’

The time is nearly here. The nation is bracing itself for the emergence of Jim White, yellow tie and all, to bring down the curtain on the 2015 summer transfer window.

With the Scot bringing us all of the final deals of Deadline Day on Sky Sports News, there is one thing we can certainly expect a lot of – clichés.

And now Ladbrokes are getting in on the act, embracing the excitement with their very own Deadline Day Buzzword Bingo.

The bookmaker has priced up a long line of words and phrases to be uttered during the final hour of the window (between 5pm and 6pm).

Shortest of all, but perhaps still plenty of value, is the Even money available on clubs doing “last minute business” as the clock ticks down.

A “work permit” to be mentioned is the same price, while it’s 3/1 that news is brought to you of a “failed medical”.

With Deadline Day often seeing transfers that we might not have expect, “Right out of left field” at 8/1 could tempt.

A signing that brings out such reaction could also lead to another bashing for the bookies if we are told how “Twitter is in meltdown” (4/1).

From “helicopter” to “Andy Carroll deal” (both 2/1), it’s all priced up here in Ladbrokes’ fantastic new Buzzword Bingo market.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
