Transfer deadline day 2023: Premier League breaks record as summer spending reaches £2.36bn


Another record-breaking transfer window closed on Friday after a busy summer in which Premier League clubs spent £2.36bn on new players.

The combined outlay of the 20 clubs during the window smashes the previous spending record of £1.92bn set last summer by £440m, according to financial services firm Deloitte.

Premier League clubs spent £255m on deadline day alone, which is more than double the £120m spent on the final day of last summer’s window.

That means the 2023-24 season already has the second-highest transfer spend ever after last season’s £2.73bn – with the January window still to come.
