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

Half a dozen deals have been 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 opens in July but as early as February you saw Spurs agreeing to buy Nabil Bentaleb, with then two other transfers agreed to (now) Premier League clubs whilst the football was still ongoing.

These are the nine Premier League transfers agreed so far as confirmed by BBC  Sport:
