The Ireland midfielder entertained himself and fans on Twitter with suggestions of players who could find themselves on the move on deadline day

Hull City midfielder David Meyler was involved in many transfer deadline day stories involving some huge clubs - mainly because he made them up himself to pass the time on Twitter.

The Republic of Ireland international entertained his 84,000 Twitter followers - and probably gained a few more - as he narrated potential transfers before the window closed.

Meyler greeted news that team-mate Alex Bruce was leaving the club for Wigan, with the hilarious reply "Alex told us he was going to Madrid."

A Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid move for Bruce failed to transpire, while Meyler was also on the lookout for a new signing on deadline day.

The 27-year-old sent a tweet to Valencia winger Nani asking him why he had yet to turn up for Hull training, much to the amusement of Tigers fans.

Meyler even went one further, suggesting that he may link up with former Hull boss Steve Bruce at Aston Villa, enquiring as to the address of their Bodymoor Heath training ground.

The midfielder is very active on Twitter, engaging with fans, and also has a live streaming account with Twitch where he plays FIFA 17 games for charity.
