18 Premier League transfers and over £250m spent so far

4 years ago

The total now stands at 18 Premier League transfers that have been confirmed so far.

There have been 16 deals agreed since the middle of May, including Christian Atsu’s permanent move to Newcastle. His fee was undisclosed but widely reported as £6.2m.

Transfers won’t formally go through until the transfer window properly opens in July, these include a couple of permanents moves that were announced as early as March, during the later stages of the 2016/17 season.

Whilst the number of transfers announced isn’t extreme, the fact that over £250m has already been committed across those deals, tells you that this summer is surely going to be the most expensive one ever – as Premier League clubs pay ever bigger fees.

From the Newcastle perspective, fans had hoped there would  have been more transfer activity by now and press claims at the weekend of Rafa Benitez not being impressed with the lack of progress made by the club on his targets, isn’t exactly a positive.
