Newcastle United's Premier League net spend compared to Arsenal, Aston Villa and Chelsea as new owners must consider Financial Fair Play restrictions

What does Newcastle United’s net spend look like as new owners plan to make moves in January window?

Amanda Staveley has confirmed that Newcastle will look to spend in January, although, she stressed that January can be a difficult time to get deals done:

Staveley said: “We’re preparing for the January transfer window. It’s not a window we would ordinarily want to invest in because you probably don’t get the right deals, but that’s something that is important at the moment, preparing for that.”

Despite Eddie Howe downplaying talks of transfers in January at his unveiling, it is clear that Newcastle need reinforcements and will look to strengthen in the winter window.

One thing that the new owners at Newcastle must consider, however, is Financial Fair Play and how that impacts the amount they are able to spend.

Here, we take a look at the net spend of each Premier League club over the past five seasons:
