How Wolves’ net spend for January transfers compares to Leicester, Everton, Southampton and rivals - gallery

Now a record-breaking January transfer window has finally come to a close in the Premier League, here are all 20 clubs’ net spends, including some big shocks.

It was a near-silent deadline day for West Midlands sides Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers, with no new signings for either side. Unai Emery’s team conducted some business, though the majority of it was just sending players out on loan. Wolves, on the other hand, had not a single incoming or outgoing to show – though they had a very successful window regardless.

Three players were allowed to depart Villa Park on loan deals until the end of the current season – attacking midfielder Aaron Ramsey to Middlesbrough, defensive anchor Marvelous Nakamba to Luton Town, and central defender Lamar Bogarde to Bristol Rovers. Emery was unable to bring in the midfielder and winger he wanted, though Bertrand Traore’s loan at Basaksehir being cut short offers some consolation.

There was far more activity elsewhere in the Premier League, including a British transfer record broken by Chelsea with the £106 million signing of Enzo Fernandez. Meanwhile, table leaders Arsenal signed Jorginho, Marcel Sabitzer joined Manchester United to provide cover for the injured Christian Eriksen, and Keylor Navas made a surprise move to Nottingham Forest.

After plenty of last-ditch deals, hard work and determination, all the wheeling and dealing is now at a standstill until the summer. With some teams very active and others not so much so, here is how the final net spend table looks from the 2023 January transfer window, according to Transfermarkt.
