Premier League clubs have again set a spending record during this summer's transfer window.
On Tuesday the transfer window in England closed for this time. Millions have been spent by both the big clubs and the clubs a bit further down the table. Some had bought what they needed early and could lean back to watch their competitors work feverishly to complete the last transfers before the window closed.
Here are the most expensive transfers this summer:
1. Kevin De Bruyne (pictured) - to Manchester City from Wolfsburg. The Belgian will cost City 58 million pounds. It is a new transfer record for the Manchester club.
