Konyaspor’s Game of Thrones inspired Samuel Eto’o announcement is the best thing you’ll see this Deadline Day

"Samuel Stormborn of the House Eto'o, First of his Name, the Unburnt..."

This is how you announce a new signing.

Forget your pianos, your come to Besiktas pleas, and your #yopierre tweets.

Konyaspor announced the arrival of Samuel Eto’o with a superb Game of Thrones inspired video.

Watch it in all its glory…

Admit it, you were humming the theme music as well.

Although that Photoshop effort at the end does detract from an otherwise incredible video.

Eto’o was mobbed by fans at the airport as he arrived to sign for the Turkish club for an undisclosed fee.

Konyaspor are hoping the 36-year-old can propel them out of the relegation scrap, with the Eagles currently languishing in 17th out of 18 in the Super Lig.

The Cameroonian legend arrives from fellow sturgglers Antalyaspor, for who Eto’o scored 42 goals in 74 league games.

It doesn’t even matter how the three-time Champions League winner gets on in our eyes, that announcement video alone makes him a club legend.

For the watch!
