Chelsea are at the top, with Liverpool and QPR the big movers, while Manchester United are also high. Manchester City have moved down, with Aston Villa and Southampton high. Where does Newcastle's January spree place them?

Premier League clubs last week voted in favour of introducing a model of Financial Fair Play, meaning scrutiny on their transfer activities should be more intense than ever.

Back in September we took a look at the Net Spend table for the 20 Premier League clubs, and now the January transfer window is over, we have re-calculated it.

It certainly makes for fascinating reading, and while Chelsea remain at the top, there have been some big movers, including Liverpool and QPR upwardly, and QPR downwards.

Here is the table...

No change. £79.5 million (Jan: bought Ba, Wallace - sold Sturridge)

2) Liverpool

Up four places. £40.8 million (Jan: bought Coutinho, Sturridge)

3) Manchester United

* Wilfried Zaha transfer not included, as it will be processed and paid in July 2013 - (with Zaha, overall figure is £53.1 million)

4) QPR

Up four places. £37.6 million (Jan: bought Samba, Remy, Jenas, Suk Young Yun)

5) Southampton
