Shane Long: Arrival from Reading had impact on West Brom's accounts

That figure represents a drop in surplus from the £9.1m for the equivalent period 12 months earlier and takes into account the £6m signing of Shane Long from Reading in the summer of 2011.

Turnover was up to a record £66.7m, 74% of which was paid out in salaries, while the club's net debt has been reduced from £2m to just £500,000.

Club chief executive Mark Jenkins said in a statement: "The club has continued to invest in its playing squad, both in transfer fees and wages and total salaries now exceed £50m per year.

"However, with careful budgeting and tight financial controls, we have managed to match our revenue to our costs and record a pre-tax profit of £1.5m."

The financial report is the first full set of accounts released by West Bromwich Albion Group Ltd since its formation in August 2010.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
