Everton were the busiest clubs in terms of arrivals as they signed a total of 17 players with Alex Iwobi joining the club on transfer deadline day. Tyrone Mings (£26.5m), Wesley (£22m), Matt Targett (£17m) and Douglas Luiz (£15m) were some of the signings that took newly promoted Aston Villa’s spending to £144.5m.
