If you think it’s quiet in the Championship, it’s not much busier in the Premier League…

There’s a pretty interesting article on Football365 titled “Transferring Itself Into A Corner” about the lack of transfer activity in the Premier League this summer so far.

I wouldn’t go as far as to call it “reassuring”, but it certainly helps. Here’s an excerpt:

So much for the predicted summer of change. It is almost precisely two months – the exact anniversary is on Friday – since the 2007/08 Premier League season reached its conclusion and, in defiance of expectations that a host of top-flight clubs would overhaul their playing personnel, just a handful of transfers have been completed.

In total, the 20 top-flight clubs have recruited just 13 players for a fee in excess of £1m. For a league renowned for its excesses, and with the new campaign scheduled to begin in five weeks, it is an astonishingly modest haul.
