The 10 most expensive Premier League signings from the 2024 January transfer window

Hakon Rafn Valdimarsson

Premier League fans are used to watching their teams throw money around with reckless abandon, and that may have just caught up with them this winter as January spending dropped from £780m in 2023 to just £96.2m in 2024.

While a number of the richest clubs declined to splash any cash during the latest window, there were still plenty of expensive moves to the Premier League which you ought to take note of.

Here are the ten most expensive signings from Premier League teams in the 2024 January transfer window.

Transfer fee: £2.6m

Kicking things off are Brentford, who parted with a cool £2.6m to sign Icelandic goalkeeper Hakon Rafn Valdimarsson.

Named the top goalkeeper in Sweden in 2023, 22-year-old Valdimarsson comes highly rated and Bees manager Thomas Frank did not hide his excitement at getting this deal done, describing him as “an exciting goalkeeper with big potential”.

With fans divided on summer signing Mark Flekken and Thomas Strakosha unsettled with a reserve role, Valdimarsson may have a big part to play over the remainder of the season.

Transfer fee: Undisclosed, reported £4m

Brentford grab number nine on the list as well with their acquisition of 18-year-old midfielder Yunus Emre Konak for a reported £4m.

Konak was a regular in the Turkish top flight during the first half of the season, starting 17 games for Sivasspor before taking his talents to the Brentford Community Stadium.

Konak is definitely one for the future, but sadly faces a prolonged period on the sidelines after tearing his Achilles tendon.

Despite being accused of breaching the dreaded Profit & Sustainability Rules, Nottingham Forest weren’t scared to keep spending this January and parted with £5m to land goalkeeper Matz Sels on Deadline Day.

Sels, 31, does have experience in England, picking up 14 appearances for a second-tier Newcastle United during the 2016/17 season, and was most recently the starter and captain of Chelsea’s sister side Strasbourg.

He joins Matt Turner, Odysseas Vlachodimos and Wayne Hennessey in a big goalkeeper group at Forest.
