Premier League transfers hit £600m and Newcastle United have contributed £0

8 months ago

These are the confirmed incoming Premier League transfers of the summer 2020 window so far listed below.

This is now the 40th day of the Premier League summer transfer window.

Only eight days to go until the Premier League season kicks off and for Newcastle fans, with Mike Ashley still in control it has well and truly put the lid on any ambition for the foreseeable future.

This window closes in England at 5pm on Monday 5 October, so after today, 31 more days of fun and games still to go.

This summer it was even more pressing to get transfers in early, due to the virus impact and shortened pre-season, if you are to be properly prepared for the 2020/21 season. Especially if 2019/20 showed up clear weaknesses in the team / squad…

Whilst Mike Ashley’s people (especially Steve Bruce) and his compliant media are desperately trying to push out a message that this transfer window will see very little money spent and most relying on cheap free transfers and loans, the truth is proving rather different.

The last three days has seen another £100m added to the total spending by Premier League clubs in this window, boosting the overall 2020 summer total to £600m+ and that is a conservative estimate.

These recent transfers have included the likes of Matty Cash (£16m) to Aston Villa, Timothy Castagne (£25m) to Leicester), Gabriel (£24m) to Arsenal and Donny van de Beek (£35m) to Man Utd.

Newcastle United? Mike Ashley has allowed precisely £0 to be contributed to that £600m+ that has been spent so far on Premier League transfers.

Midfielder Jeff Hendrick finally signed a week past Monday, following fellow free transfer Mark Gillespie – the new third choice keeper. Whilst the official PL site has also included Niall Brookwell in the new signings list, the 18 year old midfielder was released by Liverpool but has gone into the development set-up at Newcastle.

Difficult to believe that with just eight days to go until the Premier League starts, Newcastle haven’t spent a penny, nor added a single creative player or goalscorer. Especially with the likes of Dubravka and Gayle set to be out for a number of months and a number of other injuries on top of that, leading to Steve Bruce cancelling the final pre-season friendly (Middlesbrough on Monday 7 September) because he feared more injuries might happen.
