Chinese Super League outspends Premier League as winter transfer window closes

Wednesday, 1 March 2017 :  The country’s winter window closed on Tuesday, with the 16 Chinese Super League clubs passing the £215m spent by England’s 20 top-tier teams in January.

Oscar’s move to Shanghai SIPG for about £60m and Shanghai Shenhua’s reported £40m deal for Carlos Tevez came days before spending caps were announced.

Limits on the number foreign players in squads are in place for the new season.

Only three non-Chinese players can be fielded in a fixture when the season starts in March, a move the country’s football association hopes will combat “irrational” spending.

But the total spend for the winter window – which ran from 1 January to 28 February – was a record for the Super League, exceeding the 2016 window by £36m.
