How The Prem Shaped Up In January 2017

How The Prem Shaped Up In January 2017

End of deadline day and all the deals (and any that followed late) have been announced, so how did sides shape up against their Premier League opponents last month.

Plenty of sides had a few outgoings as the month progressed, and whilst some were active ahead of deadline day on the incoming front - things certainly kicked into gear in the final few days as would've been expected and happens every year now.

As an aside - I'm not adding fees and all that malarky - I'm not that conscientious! Suffice to say for this season deals broke the billion mark over the summer and when you look at the Premier League table it shows (baring exceptions) that spending more than plays its part, even if it doesn't quite guarantee anything.

January spend this year came to £236.7million but sales totalled £240.7million - a £4million profit for the first January window ever. It was still the most expensive January window since it was invented with only 2010/11 last coming close to the above spend, so it's not like clubs weren't paying through the nose.

So who did the best business and that won't necessarily be the club that did the most business.

Full list of completed deals from premierleague.com so I take no blame for omissions!
