The Premier League summer transfer window officially opens on 1 July but clubs can sign players from June, then have their registration transferred once it gets to July.

Similarly, out of contract players generally move on 1 July, although deals can be confirmed before then.

Fifteen Premier League clubs have already completed deals this summer, with 35 transfer deals outlined below, a decent number of the players having been linked with Newcastle before moving elsewhere.

The five exceptions being Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Manchester City, Newcastle United and Sunderland.

Arsenal and Manchester City have already got squads that are big in terms of numbers and quality, whilst January saw Alan Pardew allowed to spend a reported £20m+ on a handful of players, including Jordan Mutch, Wilfried Zaha and Pape Souare.

Which leaves Newcastle United and Sunderland….

Aston Villa – Micah Richards (Manchester City), Scott Sinclair (Manchester City)

Bournemouth – Tyrone Mings (Ipswich), Sylvain Distin (Everton), Christian Atsu (Chelsea), Artur Boruc (Southampton), Joshua King (Blackburn), Adam Federici (Reading)

Everton – Gerard Deulofeu (Barcelona), Tom Cleverley (Manchester United)

Leicester – Shinji Okazaki (Mainz), Robert Huth (Stoke), Christian Fuchs (Schalke)

Manchester United – Memphis Depay (PSV)

Norwich – Youssouf Mulumbu (West Brom)

Southampton – Maarten Stekelenburg (Fulham), Cedric Soares (Sporting Lisbon), Juanmi (Malaga)

West Brom – James McLean (Wigan)

West Ham – Dimitri Payet (Marseille), Pedro Obiang (Sampdoria)



  • Alex Howard

    Still loads of time to sign players. Not worried

  • Michael Hammond

    I’m slightly worried like, when you start seeing stories about players been told dont go there its cold or there’s nowhere to shop and they listen

  • Alex Howard

    If a player is so bovered by the cold. I wouldn’t want them at my club anyway.

  • Emmett Gill

    Ashley will be waiting until the end of the transfer market to try to save a couple of months’ wages.
    In his interview Ashley used the word ‘continue’ rather than ‘change’, and yet bizarrely, a lot of gullible people interpreted this to mean things were going to change. Nothing’s changed. No lessons are ever learned.

  • DownUnderMag

    Just for the record, 15 clubs that have bought players also means there’s FOUR other clubs besides us that haven’t yet. I think there is a serious need for us to get a move on but we aren’t alone in that and i’m pretty sure other clubs fans aren’t going on about it every day (although it’s worth noting how much we NEED players just to get competitive again let alone challenge the top half).
    I still firmly believe that there will be deals in the works, I just don’t think Ashley wants to spend any money on players while they aren’t actually playing games for him….we all see the sense in getting players in, letting the club see the progress, let the fans see the progress and more importantly allow the majority of the squad get a full pre-season together barring a few last minute acquisitions.  Sadly for all of us the pound signs are all that Ashley respects!

    Look on the bright side. …We’ve NEARLY brought in an assistant coach. !!!

    And when he talks about investing he means buying players with a view to selling them on as soon as a good profit can be realised. “We will continue to invest” is for the benefit of sports direct and certainly not for the benefit of Newcastle supporters and what we get to see on the pitch. Ashley out!!

  • Andgeo

    Exactly! Who wants top international players if they don’t like the cold, demand too high wages, their club places unrealistic valuations on them, we couldn’t offer them European football because it’s a waste of money, couldn’t get them over the line coz of agents fees or we couldn’t compete financially with the bigger clubs like Swansea, Palace or Bournmouth????
    Our club has become a complete disgrace, and the way it is being run for the benefit of sports direct is a total insult to the game and all newcastle supporters.
    The only way we can move forward is to get Ashley to sell up and leave. As long as our club belongs to him, his team of legal advisers and accountants with sports direct will always have a bigger say in the running of our club than “the football board”. This is a shirade, McClaren and co have the job of getting the best out of what they are given and the real people of influence around Ashley will remain nameless and faceless.
    As long as this situation continues decisions vital to the performance of Newcastle United on the pitch that involve any element of finance will be made for the benefit of Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct empire and not our football club.
    Nothing’s changed; Ashley Out!!!
