Premier League clubs have splashed around £780.1m on 52 permanent signings for disclosed fees during the January transfer window - but how much did your team spend?

The total expenditure has more than doubled last winter's total and produced a £675m net spend after teams recouped around £105.3m on player sales.

Chelsea signed the most expensive recruit during the window, with Enzo Fernandez costing a new British transfer-record fee of £106.8m, followed by new team-mate Mykhailo Mudryk (£88.5m from Shakhtar Donetsk). Anthony Gordon (£45m to Everton from Newcastle), Cody Gakpo (£45m to Liverpool from PSV), Georginio Rutter (£35.5m to Leeds from Hoffenheim) and Benoit Badiashile (£35m to Chelsea from Monaco) were also among the most pricey additions.

Chelsea blasted every rival away at least fivefold with their £323.3m spree on talent, including Fernandez, Mudryk, Badiashile, Noni Madueke (£29m), Malo Gusto (£26.3m), Andrey Santos (£18m), David Fofana (£10m) and Joao Felix (£9.7m loan fee).

Southampton, Arsenal, Bournemouth, Newcastle, Leeds and Liverpool were the next biggest spenders - all splashing between £45m and £61m, while Leicester led the chasing pack on £32.5m, followed by Wolves (£31.6m), Aston Villa (£28.1m), Nottingham Forest (£16m), West Ham (£15m), Fulham (£8m), Manchester City (£8m) and Brighton (£3.5m).

Brentford, Crystal Palace, Everton, Manchester United and Tottenham formed a band of five frugal teams who refrained from spending a penny on disclosed fees.


Everton top the table for funds received during the window after cashing in £45m from the sale of Gordon to Newcastle, while Brighton cashed in £27m from selling Leandro Trossard to Arsenal.

Aston Villa (£15m), Chelsea (£12m) and West Ham (£3.3m) were the only other clubs to receive funds for disclosed fees.
