Newcastle United kick off season top of the (transfer profits) table – The final grim Premier League transfers outcome
If you were wondering how Newcastle United had ended up doing on Premier League transfers…an interesting table below.
Sport finance experts Sporting Intelligence produced a table showing how much every PL club had spent on players this summer and the total value of players sold.
Subtracting sales from buys, they then show the net spend for each club.
Newcastle United, unsurprisingly, stand out for all the wrong reasons.
According to Sporting Intelligence, Aleksandar Mitrovic and others brought in £45,7m.
Meanwhile, the biggest buy has been Yoshinori Muto at £9.5m, with £17m spent in total according to their figures (though the late £6m Fernandez deal hasn’t been included, so actually £23m spent).
Just take a look at how stark the comparisons are with the other Premier League clubs.
Watford the only other PL club to end up in profit this summer, due largely to the £40m+ they got for Richarlison.
This Premier League transfers spending table compiled by the excellent Sporting Intelligence who report on sport’s relationship with money:
As you can see, Newcastle United proudly out ahead with a minus £28.7m net (£22.7m taking into account Fernandez) ‘spend’, leaving the rest trailing…
Burnley, Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth, Southampton, Brighton, Fulham, West Ham, Everton and Wolves, all with a net spend at least £50m more than Newcastle, in many cases far far more than £50m.
