Newcastle have brought in 26 year-old Ciaran Clark from Aston Villa today for a very reasonable £5M and he is Newcastle’s 7th signing this summer and we have now paid out close to £44M gross on those players.
However when we look at the players we have sold like Andros Townsend and Gini Wijnaldum then we have made a profit so far in this summer’s transfer market.
Ciaran Clark – after signing for Newcastle today
And if we sell Moussa Sissoko this summer it’s difficult to see how the net spend this summer will be positive and we are very likely to make a profit during our summer transfer business – so we will still have money to spend in January – if we need to.
In the table below the totals include the fee for Mohamed Diame, although Newcastle have yet to officially announce his signing – maybe later today.
