New Tottenham Hotspur signing Matt Doherty has deleted his "I love Arsenal" tweet in one of the best transfer announcements ever.
Doherty arrived from Wolverhampton Wanderers in a £15 million deal to become the club's third signing of the summer.
When news of a potential transfer first broke, a tweet the 28-year-old made back in 2012 resurfaced.
He had tweeted his love for Spurs' biggest rivals - so he decided it would be best to wipe them from history.

Doherty opens the laptop to see the tweet and he pulls a face to the camera.
After immediately deleting the post, he nods and pats the badge of his Spurs shirt with a wry smile.
Fans have reacted to the video and they think it was the perfect way for Doherty to respond.
I'm not sure if I find this hilarious or genuinely embarrassing :flushed:- Ryan (@bernardooooV3) August 30, 2020

The Republic of Ireland international has signed a four-year deal with Spurs and he told the club's official website he is excited for the "next step" in his career.
"At Wolves I just had all the experiences - disappointment and then obviously getting promoted and stuff like that, but then taking it to the next level and getting into Europe as well," he begun.
"It made me stay quite level-headed throughout my time there, but now I just feel like coming here is going to take my game and my career to the next level.
"I think it would have been tough (to leave Wolves) if I was maybe going backwards or sideways but I feel like at Tottenham now I'm really taking a big step forward - just with the facilities, everything at the club and the manager here.
"After 10 years, I know a lot of people at Wolves but it's a new challenge now and it's really a challenge that I feel like I need at this time."
