With the exception of free-spending Manchester City, it has been a relatively quiet summer transfer window thus far. With the current tightening of finances across the Premiership, teams have been looking to pick up bargains from far and wide.

However, as teams look to build the squads to achieve their targets, whether that be to wrestle the title away from Chelsea, challenge for European football, or merely ensure their survival in the top flight, there have been a number of successful and promising transfers for smaller figures already. We'll look at some of the best signings thus far.
