The signings of Kieran Trippier, Chris Wood, Dan Burn, Bruno Guimaraes, Matt Targett, Nick Pope and Sven Botman so far in 2022 have significantly inflated Newcastle’s squad value.

Further additions are expected ahead of the 2022-23 Premier League season.

Transfer fee data from Transfermarkt shows Newcastle have paid £351.32million for the current squad of players. Interestingly, they are the only side in the Premier League whose squad market value (£301.41million) is lower than the purchase value.

This is perhaps indicative of Newcastle overpaying for certain players but also still having players signed up who have depreciated in value since they first arrived.

To compare, we’ve looked at how much every Premier League club has spent on their current squad.
