During the last decade of transfer spending in the Premier League, 10 clubs have accrued losses totalling almost £4billion.

Of that number, Liverpool’s total losses when taking into account all incoming and outgoing players comes in at just over £335million.

Expenditure by top flight clubs in the transfer market has been worked out by data crunchers at Paddy Power, who have totalled every Football League team’s transfers since the 2011/12 season.

They state that Manchester City have recorded the biggest loss on transfers, having accumulated a total negative transfer balance of more than £867m.

Manchester United, meanwhile, are in second having recorded almost £815m of losses in the transfer market after bringing in players while selling others.

The two Manchester clubs are by far and away the biggest net spenders in the Premier League with combined losses of nearly £1.7bn.
