The January transfer window and deadline day in numbers

Even on a relatively quiet transfer deadline day, a late flurry of activity following the evening’s matches made for plenty of interest.

Here, we look back at the day – and the January window – in numbers.

51 – the number of players who made deadline-day moves involving Premier League clubs: 11 arrivals, 37 departures – many of them young players on loan – and three moves within the division, for Mamadou Sakho, Marc Wilson and Adlene Guedioura.

11 – number of top-flight teams who did not sign a single player on Tuesday.

£60million – the amount of money reportedly spent in the Premier League on the final day of the window, according to Deloitte’s Sports Business Group.

£215m – total reported Premier League spending in January.

£40m – net profit made by Premier League clubs over the month, largely due to big-money sales to Chinese teams.

7 – Hull were the busiest top-flight club in January, signing seven players including three on deadline day. In addition, Markus Henriksen’s loan from AZ Alkmaar became a permanent move in a pre-arranged deal.

£18m – Burnley were the Premier League’s biggest deadline-day spenders, bringing in club-record signing Robbie Brady and Ashley Westwood for reported fees of £13m and £5m respectively.

01:06 – time that Sakho’s move was officially confirmed, the final deal of the window. Jordan Rhodes’ transfer from Middlesbrough to Sheffield Wednesday was still awaiting Football League ratification on Wednesday morning.

8 – outside of the top flight, Championship Wigan were the country’s busiest side with eight deadline-day signings – Omar Bogle, Jack Byrne, Gabriel Obertan, Matt Gilks, Mikael Mandon, Josh Laurent, James Weir and Alex Bruce.
