Most Active Club: Sheffield United – 5 players coming in, 5 players going out.

Biggest Transfer: Ashley Young – 9.65 mil – Watford to Aston Villa.

Most Money Spent (net): West Ham – 11 mil on Louis Boa Morte (from Fulham), Nigel Quashie (West Brom), Calum Davenport (Tottenham) and Lucas Neill (Blackburn).

Most Money Earned (net): Watford – less than 9 mil – sold Ashley Young for 9.65 m but bought a few players (for undisclosed fees).

Best Transfer (Soccerlens Pick): Lauren to Portsmouth – fantastic piece of business by Harry. Stokes is a close second, but he’s gone to the Championship, so doesn’t really count.

Worst Transfer (Soccerlens Pick):Traore – although Harry’s known to work miracles, so we’ll have to wait and see.

Best Transfer Strategy: Sunderland, for picking up Stokes for 2 mil and Evans on loan. Yes, I know they’re not in the Premiership, but picking up both Stokes and Evans is a stroke of genius, not to mention getting rid of Jon Stead. Keano, looking forward to seeing you in the Prem next season. West Ham have strengthened considerably as well, but they spent 11 mil to do so.
