  • Aston Villa recruit Czech Republic striker Libor Kozak for £7m
  • West Brom sign forward Stephane Sessegnon for £5m-plus and Victor Anichebe for fee rising to £6m


Biggest fees spent:

£42.4 million – Mesut Ozil [Arsenal]

£30 million – Fernandinho [Manchester City]

£30 million – Willian [Chelsea]

£27.5 million –Marouane Fellaini [Manchester United]

Biggest fee received:

£85.3 million – Gareth Bale [Tottenham Hotspur]




Arsenal’s signing of Mesut Ozil was the big deal on a record-breaking deadline day as Premier League clubs set new spending records.


The London club shattered their previous transfer record by buying the Real Madrid midfielder for £42.4 million, while Manchester United moved late to sign Everton’s Marouane Fellaini for £27.5 million.


Brendan Roger’s continued to show Liverpool’s spending power by bring in central defenders Mamdou Sakho and Tiago Llori for a combined fee of around £25 million.


In total, £140 million was spent on deadline day in England, sending total outlays during the summer transfer window to £630 million, a new record. The previous record stood at £500 million from 2008.


Despite £85.3 million pounds going to Tottenham from Real Madrid for Welsh midfielder Gareth Bale, the top flight still spent £400 million more than it recouped in sales.

This net figure beats the total gross spend in Spain’s La Liga and Italy’s Serie A, both £335 million, France’s Ligue 1, £315 million, and the German Bundesliga’s £230 million.


Premier League spending was up 29% and this comes on the back of a new television deal which brings clubs an extra £600 million revenue across the top flight.


The capture of Germany international Ozil on a five-year deal will please the Arsenal fans that have had to wait four years for a big name signing. The total spent eclipses the £15 million fee for Russian Andrey Arshavin in 2009.


Tottenham Hotspur were the biggest spenders in the Premier League despite not signing anyone on transfer deadline day. They invested nearly £105 million on seven new players as they prepared for life after Gareth Bale.


Manchester United’s capture of Fellaini saw them pay £4 million more than the midfielder’s release clause that expired on 31st July. United also tried to sign Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera and Everton left-back Leighton Baines, but failed in their attempts. They were also left waiting on a loan deal for Real Madrid full-back Fabio Coentrao but it was confirmed the deal failed to go through on time.


With the departure of Fellaini from Everton, Roberto Martinez signed Gareth Barry, Romely Lukaku and James McCarthy as the Merseyside club tried to keep up with the big spenders around them.


Wigan midfielder McCarthy, 22, moved for a fee which Everton have stated as £13 million, but the Latics say it is in the region of £15 million.


Liverpool completed their business early on transfer deadline day with Sakho and Llori while Nigerian forward Victor Moses joined on loan from Chelsea. Fabio Borini went the opposite way as he completed a loan deal which sees him join Sunderland, who also captured Andrea Dossena also moving to the Stadium of Light from Napoli on a one-year deal.


Black-cats striker Stephane Sessegnon has moved to West Brom to join forwards Victor Anichebe, another late capture for a fee rising to £6 million, and Shane Long, who remains at The Hawthorns having almost joined Hull.


Elsewhere, Aston Villa agreed a deal for Czech Republic striker Libor Kozak from Lazio for about £7 million, while newly promoted Crystal Palace signed Barry Bannan from Aston Villa and defender Adrian Mariappa from Reading for an undisclosed fee.


Fellow newcomers Cardiff City signed striker Peter Odemwingie from West Brom on a two-year deal for £2.25 million.
