The transfer deadline day came and went amid much hysteria, but in the world of Twitter, one player was of more interest than anyone else.

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea saw his move to Real Madrid collapse in the dying moments of the window, ensuring United's number one will remain at the club until January at the very least, and most likely until the end of the season when his contract expires.

The transfer saga with Madrid was a huge talking point on Twitter and placed him at the top of the list, followed by Arsene Wenger and De Gea's new team-mate Anthony Martial.

Surprisingly, Sky Sports presenter Jim White, one of the most iconic figures of transfer deadline day, finds himself in fourth position on the list ahead of West Brom rebel Saido Berahino.

Information released by Twitter revealed that Pedro's switch to Chelsea was the most discussed transfer, followed by Bastian Schweinsteiger and Raheem Sterling.
