Premier League January Transfer Spending Spree?

Mon 2nd Feb 2015 | Money & Finance

At the start of the final day of this January’s window, analysis by the Sports Business Group at Deloitte shows Premier League clubs have spent around £80m acquiring new players. 

This is slightly lower than the £95m seen at the same time last year.

Dan Jones, Partner in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, commented: “As we enter the final day of this year’s transfer window, Premier League clubs’ gross spending currently stands at £80m.”

“While the summer window saw a record level of transfer spending, so far we have seen spending in January being slightly more reserved. However, 2014/15 is still a record season for Premier League spending, with clubs having spent over £900m, significantly ahead of the previous record of £760m.”

“This level of spending has been made possible in large part through the broadcast revenue Premier League clubs enjoy. With all 20 Premier League clubs now ranked in the top 40 globally by revenue, we continue to see them use their increased resources to invest in playing talent in the January window.”

The Sports Business Group will release its full analysis of the January 2015 transfer window on Tuesday 3rd February 2015.
