Total spend on summer Premier League transfers passes £400m – Newcastle United have spent £4m
This is now the 50th day of the summer market for Premier League transfers.
The window opened on 17 May 2018 and already there has been significant business done.
In terms of total spend by the 20 Premier League clubs, this has now passed £400m (as per amounts on all agreed deals below), an average of £20m per club.
From the Newcastle United perspective, only £4m paid out so far, with Dubravka becoming a permanent signing, then Ki Sung-Yueng a free transfer.
This window closes in England at 5pm on Thursday 9 August, so 35 days of fun and games still to go until deadline day.
Over in France, Germany, Italy and Spain, their windows opened on 1 June and run until 31 August.
So once the Premier League window closes, clubs in other countries can still potentially buy players from English clubs for another 22 days, though English clubs will no longer be able to buy.
