Burnley didn’t have the most extravagant of summer transfer windows, but still managed to secure two eight-figure deals to land Maxwell Cornet and Nathan Collins, as well as snatch Connor Roberts and Aaron Lennon .
One real area of ââinterest in modern football is how clubs manage to get eventual profit from the players they buy, with the hugely inflated market meaning a player could be bought for a bargain one season and whipped for. a lot of money the next.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, some players order a multi-million pound fee, before terminating their contracts and leaving for nothing a few years later.
Now that the window is closed, we took a look (via BettingOdds.com data) on the profits made by each Premier League club on previously purchased players over the past five years. The sales of academy players are also factored into the numbers.
This is how Burnley’s profit percentage on players sold ranks alongside all of their division rivals over the past half-decade of transfer activity.
