Numbers: Just three Premier League sides ended the summer in profit

Premier League Trophy

The transfer window is closed and clubs will reflect on a busy summer of spending - but Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton will be counting profits.

The transfer window has closed and another busy deadline day saw the overall spending of Premier League clubs soar above £800 million.

In total, an estimated £857.7 million was spent by Premier League sides - the biggest amount in the window's history.

Manchester United were the biggest spenders as their expenditure exceeded £150 million, with a net spend of around £122 million as Louis Van Gaal hopes to guide the team back into the top four.

Angel Di Maria was one of several stars brought in and the Argentine's £59.7 million move from Real Madrid was the biggest transfer fee paid in British history.

Stoke spent the least as they paid out just £3.4 million over the course of the summer but did not end up in profit as they only received £3 million from outgoings.

Three clubs managed to end the window in profit as Chelsea, Tottenham and Southampton all have money left to reinvest in January and beyond.

Chelsea were the third-biggest spenders in the league as they invested almost £90 million on new signings to help them challenge for the title once again, but did well to receive more than they spent with David Luiz's £50 million move to Paris Saint-Germain their biggest deal.

Spurs saw six new players brought in by new boss Mauricio Pochettino but they ended in profit once more as Sandro's deadline day move to Queens Park Rangers meant the Lilywhites made around £6 million over the course of the window.

Southampton were one of the busiest clubs as they saw several stars leave the club, and they managed to replace them with new signings whilst retaining around £30 million in profit to spend in January if they need to.

  Net Spend (£m)
Southampton 30.7
Tottenham 6.5
Chelsea 0.8
Stoke City -0.4
Swansea City -1.3
Aston Villa -5.9
Burnley -8.0
Sunderland -9.5
Leicester City -10.0
Crystal Palace -11.0
West Brom -13.6
QPR -21.0
Hull City -24.4
Newcastle -24.9
West Ham -31.0
Manchester City -32.0
Everton -32.8
Liverpool -35.7
Arsenal -46.4
Manchester United -122.0

Arsenal continued to spend money as they brought in Alexis Sanchez for £35 million and ended up spending around £78 million in total.

Liverpool saw Luis Suarez leave for Barcelona in a deal worth £75 million but reinvested that money and more as they spent about £115 million on transfers which included Mario Balotelli's deal for £16 million.

Transfer fees will continue to rise and the amount spent each summer looks certain to keep rising too, and it won't be long until over £1 billion is spent by Premier League clubs in one window.
