Newcastle were also the biggest spenders in the January transfer window.

This is what Paul has said about the Newcastle transfer window and the players we brought in:

“They have had a right go in the transfer market and it was 100% the right thing to do.”

“I like what they’ve bought; Andros Townsend and Jonjo Shelvey have played in the Premier League, they’ve played international football, they always want to get on the ball and I really like that.”

Grade: A+

And most fans think we have done well also.
