Newcastle United’s huge squad value compared to Leeds, Aston Villa & Premier League rivals - gallery

The value of United’s squad has increased over the last 12 months - but how does it compare to their rivals?

The January transfer window is finally closed and it has rounded off 12 months of transformation for Newcastle United.

This time last year, the Magpies were reflecting on a remarkable month of business as the likes of Kieran Trippier, Bruno Guimaraes and Dan Burn were tempted to Tyneside, despite Eddie Howe’s men being in the midst of a battle against relegation from the Premier League.

With top flight status secured, the United hierachy embarked on a targeted summer recruitment drive as Howe’s squad was enhanced with the high-profile captures of England goalkeeper Nick Pope and highly-rated Dutch defender Sven Botman before the club’s transfer record was broken with a deal for Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak.

Although speculation was rife over deals for several players during January, the Magpies quest for success in the Premier League and Carabao Cup was aided by two new faces after Everton’s Anthony Gordon and West Ham United youngster Harrison Ashby both joined the club.

But where has that left United’s overall squad value compared to their Premier League rivals?
