West Ham mid-table in 'net spend' chart

By: Staff Writer

West Ham are currently mid-table in a list of their Premier League peers' net spending so far this summer.

The Hammers may have outspent the likes of established Premier League clubs such as Aston Villa and Everton so far this summer, however they are lagging some distance behind the likes of Newcastle United and Crystal Palace.

When considering the clubs who finished 10th or lower in the Premier League last season - plus the three promoted clubs Bournemouth, Norwich and Watford - West Ham appear sixth in a 'total net spend' table.

According to all available statistics, the Hammers have made a net spend of 17.5million so far this summer following the acquisition of Angelo Ogbonna, Dimitri Payet, Pedro Obiang (23m in total) and the sale of Stewart Downing (5.5m).

And whilst that (currently) beats the spending of five clubs, a further five - including two of the three promoted sides - have invested considerably more in their playing squads so far this summer.

The following table was compiled by KUMB member OllyWHU6.
