Premier League Heading For Record Summer Transfer Window

Fri 30th Aug 2013 | Money & Finance

With three days until the close of the window, Deloitte’s analysis shows that gross transfer spending by Premier League clubs looks set to reach a record level. 

The current spending total of £430m is 15% higher than at this point last year.

Dan Jones, Partner in the Sports Business Group, commented: “This summer looks set to be a record for the Premier League in gross, and quite possibly also net transfer spending.

"Clubs have already spent over £400m this summer and with several large deals looking close to completion and a number of clubs still expected to do significant business, we will likely see the £500m gross record broken by Tuesday morning.

“In a potentially record summer, it is important to consider this level of spending in the wider financial context of the Premier League. The 2013/14 season will be the first in which clubs will benefit financially from the increased broadcast deals and we are seeing this translate into increased spending.

"However, transfer spending this summer is still likely to be less than the total incremental revenue clubs will receive from these new broadcast deals.”

The Sports Business Group at Deloitte will release its analysis of the 2013 summer transfer window on Tuesday 3 September 2013.
