The club has revealed that £29.8m was spent on Newcastle signings since June last year.

The 2013/14 Newcastle United accounts have now been filed at Companies House and as well as what happened last season, there are also some additional notes on what happened with the buying and selling of players since the 30 June 2014 cut-off point.

£29.8m was spent on 6 players, which appear to be De Jong, Riviere, Cabella, Janmaat, Darlow, Lascelles (Colback and Perez signed in June)

Siem de Jong was announced on 1 July 2014 but would surely be one of the six as nobody else was signed apart from the above, other than the loan of Facundo Ferreyra (for pursposes unknown…).

The financial report also says that £12.6m was collected from player sales after 30 June 2014, which would mainly have come from Mathieu Debuchy and topped up by Amalfitano and Tavernier going for small amounts.

With Debuchy widely reported as being sold for an amount in excess of £10m, it would appear neither Mapou Yanga-M’biwa and Davide Santon are not included in this sales income.
