Newcastle United help take Premier League clubs summer spending past £1billion

Premier League clubs are looking forward to their second round of matches this weekend.

However, running alongside that, we are now on the final stretch of the summer transfer window.

Today (Friday 20 August) is days 73 of the window, with 11 more days to go before it closes on 31 August.

Whilst Steve Bruce predicted (and continues to do so) that this summer would see very little transfer action for Premier League clubs and minimal spend, reality has proved very different.

With at least 78 signings (see below) by Premier League clubs so far this summer, that has sent spending beyond the £1billion mark now. That is even with conservative estimates when it comes to the numerous ‘undisclosed’ transfer fees agreed.

Newcastle United have even contributed belatedly to that £1billion+ total, with the Joe Willock signing set to cost an eventual £25m.

Time running out though for Mike Ashley to allow the signing of three or more further credible players that are desperately needed still.
