This video of Jim White not presenting transfer deadline day will confuse and alarm you

The most wonderful time of the year? Well, maybe, but for football fans it’s up there. It’s a last minute trolley dash for your club before everyone settles down for the first half of the season.

But if transfer deadline day is the new Christmas, then Jim White is Santa Claus.

Wherever there’s big news, the big man is there.

But it wasn’t always that way. As an up and coming presenter, young Jim White plied his trade elsewhere. He reported on things a little less football, and a little more like… well, this.

A White wedding anyone? Apologies, but he started it with that creepy wink. Stick to deadline day Jim, and we’ll never speak of this again!
