Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, Manchester City and Hull City all feature.

The summer transfer window closed well over a month ago and new signings have had plenty of chance to settle in and prove their worth to various sides all over the Premier League.

Hundreds of millions of pounds was taken and spent over the course of the summer but which sides have spent most effectively and which sides are not enjoying a great pounds-to-points ratio?

Top Five

1) Newcastle United

Alan Pardew’s men spent most wisely over the summer with just £200,000 going towards each point so far this season.

Pardew explained the club’s lack of spending over the summer was due to the number of signings he made last January. They paid a loan fee for Loic Remy but that was all.

2) Stoke City

Stoke are spending around £701,000 per point at the moment based on their summer transfer activity.

Stoke spent around £5 million on players over the summer and their fans may suggest it wasn’t enough due to some flat performances and a generally negative start to the season.

3) Hull City

Hull, like Crystal Palace, had to tool up well over the summer as a newly promoted side coming into the top flight of English football.

Hull have spent £0.97 million per point so far this season, having made top quality signings over the summer such as Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore, both from Tottenham Hotspur.

4) Fulham

Fulham are fourth in the top five spending £1.14 million per point so far.

Fulham shelled out around £8 million over the summer with the highest profile player coming in being striker Darren Bent in a loan deal from Aston Villa.

5) West Bromwich Albion

Completing the top five is West Brom spending £1.33 million per points.

The Baggies spent well with around £12 million going out of the club for key players like strikers Victor Anichebe from Everton and Stephane Sessegnon from Sunderland.

Bottom Five

1) Chelsea

Chelsea are spending £4.51 million per point at the moment.

Chelsea shelled out £30 million to sign Willian from Shakhtar Donetsk which damaged their ratio, but they seem to have spent well over the summer, currently third behind Liverpool and Arsenal at the top of the table.

2) Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace signed a lot of players over the summer for the princely sum of around £17 million.

It was something they had to do as a newly promoted side but they have secured only three points so far this season, which suggests they are seriously going to struggle over the rest of the campaign unless results pick up.

3) Manchester City

Manchester City appear in the bottom five with £7.94 million spent per point so far this season.

City responded aggressively to losing the Premier League title to Manchester United with the big money signings of players like Fernandinho, Alvaro Negredo, Stevan Jovetic and Jesus Navas as they spent over £100 million.

4) Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur are the second worst club with £7.98 million spent per point so far this season.

Spurs spent well over £100 million on new players during the summer, as Andre Villas-Boas looked to significantly improve the quality and the number of options within his squad.

5) Sunderland

Sunderland are bottom of this table as well as the Premier League table spending £21.3 million per point so far this season.

Former manager Paolo Di Canio spent a lot of cash over the summer as he looked to change the look of his squad with the likes of Emanuele Giaccherini coming in for big fees.
