Following a record breaking summer in 2014 in the Premier League, Championship clubs have also been similarly busy as 24 teams gear up to continue their assault on the league in order to win promotion to the most lucrative league in the world.
Relegated teams Fulham, Norwich and Cardiff flexed their cash muscle and recruited some top players. Fulham raised eyebrows by signing Ross McCormack for a princely £11m – which was put into context by the signing of Shane Long and Mario Balotelli in the Premier League. But with parachute payments and the huge cash injection that promotion can bring, in the grand scheme of things, spending that much money could be a shrewd move in 12 months time.
Over the next few posts, I’ll go through each of the teams and pick out the key transfers, including the stats if I have them. I don’t know each player extensively, nor do I know that much about each of the 24 clubs, but will give a view where I can.
