Worrying for Newcastle as rivals get busy with 2019 Summer Premier League transfers
The confirmed incoming Premier League transfers of the summer 2019 window so far, are listed below.
This is now the 30th day of the Premier League summer transfer window.
For Newcastle fans, the uncertainty over the ownership of the club and the manager’s situation further complicates things.
Whilst the window had a slow start overall for the Premier League, there will be concerns for Newcastle fans as rival clubs are now stepping up their recruitment.
The last week and a half has seen Aston Villa lay out around £43m on three players, including £22m on Wesley Moraes who Newcastle had been strongly linked with.
Elsewhere, West Ham have made their third signing of the window, today paying £24m for striker Pablo Fornals.
Wolves have committed to three permanent deals costing £44m, including converting loan signings Jimenez and Dendoncker to permanent deals.
Southampton already have a £34m commitment, with £14m agreed for Moussa Djenepo yesterday, as well as Danny Ings to become a permanent signing at the end of the month.
With Bournemouth spending paying out £13m on Lloyd Kelly as soon as the window opened a month ago, we have four Premier League clubs that Newcastle will be hoping to compete with, who have all made major improvement to their teams/squads, some significantly so.

Scotland – Tuesday 11 June and ends on Monday 2 September
EFL Championship – Monday 6 May and ends Thursday 8 August
EFL League One/League Two – Monday 6 May and ends 31 August
France – Tuesday 11 June and ends 31 August

So once the Premier League window closes, clubs in other countries can still potentially buy players from English clubs, though English clubs will no longer be able to buy.
