Tottenham Hotspur became the first Premier League side in history not to sign a single new player in the last summer transfer window, a record they later extended across January too.

In fact, the last time Daniel Levy pulled out the Spurs wallet for a new signing was way back in January 2018 when Lucas Moura was brought in from PSG.

Despite the lack of signings this season, Spurs still managed to spend £11m on agent fees, placing them ninth in the League for third-party payments (Sun).

This came after Tottenham renewed the contracts of multiple first team stars, putting them on greater wages and longer deals.

The likes of Harry Winks, Harry Kane, Heung Min Son, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela, and Davinson Sanchez all signed bumper new deals over the last two transfer windows.

Liverpool were the League’s top spenders with £43m, with Chelsea on £26m, Man City on £24m, United on £20.7, and Arsenal matching Tottenham’s £11m.
