The 28-year-old has now left Tottenham on loan for Sevilla.
For now, however, he is no longer Tottenham's concern. The Argentine has been offloaded and it sounds like a massive relief for most fans.
And, with the north London side having done little business this January transfer window, Fazio reminds us that sometimes it's better not to.
Indeed, the 28-year-old was brought to White Hart Lane to add quality at the back or, at the very least, competition in defence.
But Fazio has frustrated fans ever since and his signing serves as a warning that spending isn't always best.
Supporters have expressed their pleasure at Tottenham's window so far - although many are unhappy they haven't brought more in. Certainly, Spurs could do with another forward.
