Even though this summer’s transfer window was the biggest spending spree in the Premier League ever, the last day turned out to be an anti-climax especially for the big clubs. None of the Big Four or Manchester City bought any more player before yesterday’s deadline.

A record of over £460m were spent from the 1st of July til yesterday’s deadline, more than £45 more than last year’s total. City spent the most money with £118m spent on players again this year, that’s more than a quarter of the cash spent by all the Premier League clubs combined.

The Premier League’s notable last day signings:

Johnny Heitinga to Everton.

Niko Kranjcar to Tottenham Hotspurs.

David Nugent to Burnley on loan.

Tal Ben Haim to Portsmouth.

Nicky Shorey to Portsmouth on loan.

Richard Dunne’s proposed move to Aston Villa from Man City is delayed due to Dunne’s unsatisfactory over loyalty bonus, but the move is signed and expected to be confirmed by Wednesday.

    I read at the weekend his dispute over pay was over a proposed testimonal event the club had promised him next year – figures like £6m were being banded around on Sunday at least.

    And Nicky Shorey’s loan move to Pompey fell through at the last minute, didn’t it?

    To be fair, I think Everton’s signing of Heitinga and Spurs signing of Kranjcer are good pieces of business – quality places at unexaggerated prices.

    Nice post. I wonder if we will see any of the top clubs make any big buys in the January transfer window.
