Newcastle United’s incredible net spend compared to Premier League rivals Arsenal, Chelsea and Leeds United

It has been a transformative year for Newcastle United and their supporters.

Investment is being made at every level of the club, with the academy, women’s team and support staff all being backed to grow over the coming years.
