Tottenham Hotspur famously failed to bring in any new faces in the summer transfer window, the first team to ever achieved such a statistic.

Spurs have also chosen not to restock their squad so far this January, despite Mousa Dembele leaving the club and a number of key injuries.

However, even with this lack of activity, Tottenham have still been ranked as the most effective Premier League club in the transfer window over the last five seasons.

Research from Free Super Tips’ study into transfer efficiency found that Spurs were the most effective in transfer dealings versus success.

They formulated a table based on expenditure, points gained, performance, value for money, and managerial outgoings.

Spurs are top of the League with a spending of just £3.8m per point gained over the last five seasons.

Arsenal are their closest top six rival with £7m per point, with Liverpool (£10.3m), Man City (£10.4m), and Man United (£11m) as the worst three ever-present Prem sides.
