How The Prem Shaped Up In The Summer Of 2017

How The Prem Shaped Up In The Summer Of 2017

End of deadline day and all the deals (and any that followed late) have been announced, so how did sides shape up against their Premier League opponents over the summer.

Plenty of sides had a few outgoings as the month progressed, and whilst some were active ahead of deadline day on the incoming front - things certainly kicked into gear in the final few days as would've been expected and happens every year now.

All Premier League clubs added at least two new faces to their group this summer.

As an aside - I'm not adding fees and all that malarky - I'm not that conscientious! Suffice to say for this season deals broke the billion mark again over the summer and fees are only going in one direction.

Source correct as of 6pm yesterday so one or two potential deals still to be confirmed.
