Newcastle Spent £1.6M Net This Year On Transfers


As far as we can tell, when you look at the January transfer window and this summer’s transfer window, which ended last night, we estimate that Newcastle’s net spend  was just less than £2M in the two transfer markets.

pound note

Here are the incoming and outgoing transfers Newcastle completed this summer.

IN:

Ayoze Perez£1.4MTenerife

Siem de Jong£6MAjax
Remy Cabella£8MMontpellier
Emmanuel Riviere£6MMonaco
Daryl Janmaat£5MFeyenoord

James Tavernier£400KWigan

Michael RichardsonFree
Adam CampbellOne Month LoanFleetwood Town
Jamaal LascellesSeason LoanNottingham Forest
Karl DarlowSeason LoanNottingham Forest
Mapou Yanga-MbiwaSeason Loan £600KRoma
Hatem Ben ArfaSeason LoanHull City

With those estimates for the incoming transfers this summer we paid out about £35M and that includes the £1.6M loan fee for Facundo Ferreyra.

Another outlay for Newcastle was the loan fee we paid out in January to Borussia Monchengladbach for Luuk de Jong – so let’s assume that was about £1M.

So with loan fees and transfer costs for incoming players this year we paid out about £36M – £33.4M in transfer fees and £2.6M in loan costs for de Jong and Ferreyra.

For outgoing transfers this summer we received about £12.4M for Debuchy and Tavernier, and of course we got around £20M for Yohan Cabaye in January – that’s 32.4M we received in transfer fees this year.

We don’t know what the loan fee was for Ben Arfa’s move to Hull, but let’s say it was £1M – so we got around £1.76M in loan fees for loaning out Ben Arfa and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa yesterday.

And since there is an additional €500K based on appearances for Mapou at Roma, let’s just say we got £2M for the loans of Ben Arfa and Yanga-Mbiwa.

So that makes about £32.4 plus £2M – £34.4M we received for the outgoing transfers and loan deals this year.

So we paid out £36M and got back £34.4M.

And we didn’t assume any loan fee for loaning out Marveaux to Guingamp.

It’s almost a wash.

That’s assuming the estimates for the transfer fees are close and that our maths is OK.

    Prodigy,
    I don’t mind the club being self sufficient, I do prefer that model to getting a Sheikh in who spends hundreds and hundreds of millions. But if we are as Llambias put it, wanting the club to ‘wipe its own nose’ then surely we should a) be allowed to maximise our revenue through advertising, merchandising etc. b) spend the profit that we have made.

    Now, my guess is that we will be told that the profit from this and last year will be ploughed into building the new training facility. That is all well and good, but surely it makes more sense to spend some of the money now, and use some of next years guaranteed windfall to make up the rest of the costs, as it isn’t being built till May 2015.

    Bob52,
    No the loan to buy window isn’t open. The emergency loan window opens in a weeks time, but that only allows English lower league clubs to sign people, not Prem sides.

    Bob,
    We definitely have not signed more players than anyone else and considering it was our first foray into the transfer market for a year and a half it makes your blatant error even more wide of the mark, in fact despite having an under strength squad already we have still managed to let more players go this window than we have brought in, and if you see how many have left compared to bding bought since the famoys five that January it really beggars belief.

    And not forgetting the zero signings in the last two windows. Let’s not go through the Carroll money not being spent either.

    Plus, he keeps a career long underachiever in charge whilst his advertising exposure ticks over.

    Sickening.

    I know the prem league rules but I also thought FIFA override any other authority and as such could enforce clubs to allow players to play against parent clubs?

    Fortunate for us he can’t feature…poor dummet or haidara wouldn’t have a clue.

    exactly…people don’t (or shouldn’t) care about the net or the gross spend, as fans we care about players coming in. We’d have taken 10 frees if they were good enough just as we’d have taken 10 players costing 50mil each.

    It’s about buying quality in the right area and we aren’t doing that.

    Sage,
    No, the FA hold almost as much power as FIFA. Any rule changes have to be agreed by FIFA AND IFAB, the International Football Association Board for them to be enforced. This board comprises the FA, SFA, FAW and the IFA. (English, Scottish Welsh and Irish FA bodies)

    this is now not just incompetence in trying to make us self sufficient it is downright tantamount in slowly destroying nufc whilst making very tidy profits to spirit away
    the time is now ripe to make the regime as uncomfortable as possible

    Transfer money being put aside for a new manager and coaching staff

    this is what I see

    FDB should be our next manager because MA would profit a lot with him at the helm and the way FDB utilizes youth players and brings them into the first team, MA would relish this.

    All in all if this did happen would MA become a fan favourite?

    for me he would be in my good books.

    You can defend some of Ashleys methods and means, financially he is operating under a sound business model.

    We as fans are suffering as a result of that.

    Although it will be like Christmas time when he does leave, I’m likening to being an occupied country during the war!

    We will endure man, we’re Geordies!

    It’s got nothing to do with the contract

    In the Premier League, players on loan are not permitted to play against the team which holds their registration (section 7.2 of rule M.6). Loanees are, however, allowed to play against their ‘owning’ clubs in cup competitions, unless they have played for their owning club in that cup during that season.

    Sage
    Don’t think FIFA are going to care to much about Hull vs Newcastle
    Also let’s not over hype this, he had as many sh1t games as good ffs why would he terrorise us exactly?
    Out of all the things to be angry about in this window losing a player who hasn’t regularly featured since the Europa league campaign is most certainly not one
    We have no cover at CB
    No cover at RB atm
    No cover for De Jong/ Cabella
    No proven CF
    And a sh1t manager
    But yeah let’s concentrate on HBA

    Fcking disgrace this club is.

    Run by a cretin who sees profit and money before anything else regardless if its detrimental to the team and a league 1 chancer in charge of player’s he hasn’t got a clue how to use.

    One thing that sticks I’m my memory regarding the puppet is something a reporter said about him ” I’ve followed his career closely and sometimes he feels he doesn’t get the credit he thinks he deserves” haha for what? Winning the paint trophy you Fcuking kunt? Egotistical scumbag who needs to get fcuked off sharpish and take his equally bad bum chum with him

    I just hope, no pray that the abuse rains down from every stand on the pair of wasters from now on!

    The only problem is some fans have short memories so by the time the international break has finished then they’ve probably forgot what’s transpired and sit their like good little supporters. I say never forget as it’s gotten to the point now where they simply cannot be allowed to get away with it! Enough is enough people, if you go to the match and are happy to sit their getting served dross whilst fatty and his puppet laugh their fcuking cocks off at you then more fool you! Each to their own I suppose but don’t fcuking moan when we eventually get shafted again!

    I made a conscious decision to not attend after Houghton got sacked as I’d had enough of the lies, deceit, blatant none regard and disdain for us fan’s….the hardest thing I’ve ever done but I stand by my decision!

    Wake the fcuk up!

    Fatty out! Totally complicit puppet out!

    If you add £2.5 mill from the sale of Forster then Ashley has made a profit again.No capital outlay is his policy.I wonder what he has done with the £30 mill extra tv money from last year?

    Stuart, yes. That’s what I was wondering. I highly doubt it as Pardew will have ‘advised’ it not to be in place for a return.

    What’s annoying is that Pardew will have those pictures of Hatem going to Hull and he’ll have had a smug look on his slimy face.

    The question is, as Jarra mentioned, is that with the no capital outlay policy, what is the point of it when money just racks up and amounts to nothing? It is in effect dead money.

    Is it wasted, or will Ashley take it? It can’t really be both can it?

    Ashley and his puppet out.

    Streete – Injured and heavily injury prone zero experience in any competitive level

    Good – Injured and has been picking up lots of injuries during his short time here

    Sakta – looks decent but if thrown in at the deep end due to injuries the lad will hardly flourish

    So yeah there’s no cover, in fact f**k the cover, there’s no CB’s pushing to improve the same woeful set of CB’s we’ve had since the championship

    the longer Pardew is at our club the shorter his compensation will be

    I think now it’s about 5-6 million and maybe 1-2 million for the current staff.

    Pardew is on his last leg now and I believe if he looses 4 out of 5 games he will be gone and someone with FDB caliba will be brought in.

    I also don’t believe that MA would risk bringing in another Pardew type manager.

    a young and proving manager will deliver stability to our club, MA would want this and we would as well

    Seems I was a little slow, I blame the HBA loan to Hull for my restless sleep.

    It would be a small comfort is the likes of ALderweireld don’t settle and have a poor season, but I can’t see that happening to be honest.

    Any manager who is content enough with our centre backs and the amount of goals we concede each season, should be managing for a team in a lower division.

    I wish I supported some other club, but as we all know, once a fan falls in love with a club, no matter how much it hurts, he’ll never fall out of love with them.
    He’ll just detest their manager and owner occasionally

    Lilongwe @ 1 – Do you think the Chelsea and Man City fans are bothered about their ‘sheik’ spending ‘hundreds and hundreds of millions’ when they are watching the worlds best players and cheering them onto Cup and League success?
    Why should you not want that – it’s not your money that would be being used. Don’t you think that after that nearly fifty years of winning anything it would be a nice change for us, just once, to have that luxury too?
    Like someone once said you can’t parade a healthy balance sheet on an open top bus calvalcade.
