The Transfer League Tables represents a record of the amount of money spent in transfer fees by English Premier League Football Clubs since 1992 The table also shows new investment which club owners have made available to their club managers. The new investment can be seen season by season on the Club page from the Teams Transfer Menu.
The "Purchased" column in this table shows the money spent on players in transfer fees by all the English Premier League clubs since the Premiership was formed in 1992. The "Sold" column shows the money received by the football club from the sale of players in the same period. In the Nett" column the total of transfer fees received from the sale of Players is subtracted from the total money spent in transfer fees on purchasing players since 1992. This Nett figure is the "new investment" made available each season to the manager to buy players. The "per season" column is the "Nett" total divided by the number of years that have passed since 1992 giving an average of the money spent in transfer fees by each premiership club each season since 1992.
|#||Nett Spend 92/03 To Date||Purchased Gross||Sold||Netspend||Per Season|

Transfer rumours are always a hot topic among football fans, with big name players regularly being linked with moves to new clubs.
Indeed, talking about the latest transfer rumours has become an industry of its own in the last few years with lots of new websites set up dedicated to this part of the beautiful game alone.
Betting on transfer rumours is also becoming increasingly popular and NoDepositRewards has a guide to some of the best bookmakers in the United Kingdom.
But which players have been in the headlines recently due to rumours over their futures?
Premier League transfer rumours
With the January transfer window just around the corner, clubs will be preparing shortlists as they get ready to add to their squads.
Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have all made brilliant starts to the Premier League season but that is unlikely to stop any of those clubs trying to make new signings.
City have been linked with a move for Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong, with the 21-year-old Netherlands international said to be worth as much as £50 million.
Reports have claimed Chelsea are keen on a move on Lyon star Nabil Fekir, who was strongly rumoured to be moving to Liverpool prior to the 2018-19 season before the deal fell through. Chelsea are also reportedly keen on Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.
Adding goals is a priority for the Blues to reduce their heavy reliance on key player Eden Hazard, who himself continues to be linked with a switch away from Stamford Bridge.
Eden Hazard transfer rumours
Hazard has made no secret of his desire to play for Real Madrid at some stage in his career, indicating he feels playing in La Liga would be a boost to his hopes of winning the Ballon d'Or.
"Real Madrid is the best club in the world," Hazard said in a recent interview. "I don't want to lie, it is my dream since I was a kid. We will see. I don't want to talk about this every day. I don't have time, but we will talk about my future soon."
Hazard, though, indicated he is not likely to push for a move from Chelsea if the club are determined to keep him at Stamford Bridge. "It is like I have said a lot of times: if I leave I will be happy, I know if I stay I will be happy," he said.
At the age of 27, the Belgium winger is right at the peak of his powers and with his Chelsea contract set to expire at the end of the 2019-20 season, the club may soon have to cash in.
Chelsea have already been forced into the sale of Hazard's Belgium team-mate Thibaut Courtois in similar circumstances, the goalkeeper joining Madrid for a cut-price fee.
And Hazard - one of the stars of the World Cup - might well follow Courtois to the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season, although he has also suggested he might be willing to sign a new Chelsea contract as well. Hazard has already confirmed he will not leave in January.
"Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay," he said. "It is a hard decision. It is my future. I am 27 and I will turn 28 in January."
Barcelona transfer rumours
Last January saw Barcelona spend big, bringing in Brazil star Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool, and it is not out of the question that they do so again when the transfer window reopens.
City face a battle with Barca for the signature of De Jong, while his Ajax team-mate Matthijs De Ligt has also been linked with the Camp Nou club.
Barca would love to do a double deal for the Dutch duo but the Catalan giants may be unable to persuade them to move in the middle of the season, especially if Ajax are still in Europe.
The Amsterdam side have made a strong start to their Champions League season and look on track to qualify for the next phase of the competition, which could persuade both De Ligt and De Jong to stay until at least the end of the season.
Barca would likely be willing to wait and it is possible they secure an agreement with Ajax that would see both players stay at the club for now and join Barca in time for 2019-20.
Arthur signed from Gremio in similar circumstances and the midfielder has been a smash hit for Barcelona, earning his first Brazil call-up and comparisons to both Xavi and Andres Iniesta.
Neymar transfer news and rumours
He is already the most expensive player in the history of world football, but Neymar could be on the move again sooner rather than later, although perhaps not in the January transfer window.
The Brazil superstar does not appear to have settled at Paris Saint-Germain, who paid an incredible €222million to release Neymar from his Barcelona contract last August.
Neymar won a domestic treble as PSG dominated in Ligue 1 but they fell short in Europa, a Champions League exit to Real Madrid denting Neymar's chances of winning the Ballon d'Or.
He missed the end of the season with a fractured foot and did not have a particularly strong World Cup for Brazil, who lost to Belgium at the quarter-final stage at Russia 2018.
But Neymar is still considered among the best players in the world and if he wanted to leave PSG, there would be plenty of clubs trying to see if they could afford to buy the 26-year-old.
A return to Barcelona has been suggested although it is unclear whether the circumstances surrounding his controversial exit from the club would stop this from being a realistic option.
Madrid have long been touted as the next club for Neymar with some pundits even suggesting his move to PSG was intended as a stop-gap measure before he could sign for Los Blancos.
A move directly from Barca to Madrid would have been impossible for political reasons but Neymar appears a possible candidate to fill the boots of Cristiano Ronaldo at the Bernabeu.
The transfer window as we know it today was officially introduced by FIFA during the 2002/03 season. Some countries had already used a similar system but the new regulations meant that all major leagues had to comply. As a result, two player registration periods were introduced: a 12-week window in the break between seasons and a month-long window in the middle of the season. For most European countries, the mid-season window now occurs in January.
A controversial system
The January window has proved to be the most controversial, with many top managers being vocal in their opposition to the system. There are several issues that have been raised such as players becoming unsettled at the start of the season, having already spoken to clubs regarding a January move, or certain teams strengthening having already played some sides twice but not others, possibly affecting the title or relegation races.
Another argument against the system is that it encourages spending for the sake of it and artificially inflates the prices of players as the deadline approaches and teams scramble into action. This perhaps came to a head in 2011 when January spending in the Premier League topped £200m for the first time - a leap of over £150m from 2005. The 2017 January window spend reached £218m, seven times the £68m figure it would have reached had it simply risen in line with inflation since 2003.
Hits and misses
In such an environment where clubs are panic buying and agents are out to make a killing, there are no guarantees that any transfer will be a success. And it could be argued that the January window produces more misses than hits with many transfers seemingly more about business than football. But amongst all the exchanging of paperwork via over-worked fax machines, there have been some real success stories. So, let’s take a look at some of the best pieces of January transfer window business that have been carried out over the last few years.
