It's been a hectic month of transfers at The Avenue and we've only just reached August, with 12 joining the club so far this summer.
Adam Chabukiani seems to have changed his transfer policy a lot compared to last season as he has failed to sign up a single player from the British Isles as his squad hunts European progression.
A particular nation which Chabukiani seems to be buying from is Switzerland - the national team that he manages - as he snaps up four Swiss players this window in the form of Stéphane Pires, Xhevdet Sefa, Nico Elvedi and Yann Sommer.
The manager has also set a record high for fees spent on transfers in a season already as he reportedly spends approximately £75million on player arrivals this summer.
In terms of departures, there was plenty more than arrivals but at a much lower cost. 28 players found themselves leaving the club this summer, with the large majority of them failing to play a first-team game after sitting in the Under-21s last season.
However, we sold a huge star in American striker Michael Lieblein as A.C. Milan snapped him up for a fee of £31.5M - the largest fee we have ever received for a single player and he made up the large portion of the £78M we made from transfer fees this summer.
We sold a star wonderkid in Paul Humphreys as the 18-year-old left for Spurs in an £11M deal. Rafinha also left for a £9M profit as he joined Villareal in a £10M deal.
Included in the departures are the loan deals of which there are nine players on temporary contracts elsewhere.
The first to leave was Brazilian right-back, Neto
, who was signed in 2020 from Sport Recife in Brazil on a free transfer. He was immediately loaned out to Mexican side León and after that, Liga BBVA outfit Real Sporting. Combined, the 21-year-old made thirty league appearances on his two loan spells. He now joins Swiss side FC Thun for a spell in the Raiffeisen Super League.
After his arrival last season, Salvadoran forward José Luis Aguilar
joins Slovenian giants Maribor on a season-long loan deal. He spent last season on loan in Slovenia as well, with Olimpija Ljubjana.
is set for new surroundings as his four years on loan to Alfreton came to an end in June. In all competitions, the striker scored an outstanding 124 goals in 193 games for the Vanarama National League team. He quickly became a fan favourite after leading their promotion season with 17 goals, before three consecutive Play-Off finishes. However he will move up north for a season-long loan deal with Scottish Premiership side St. Johnstone.
Versatile defender Luke Lloyd
links up with Premier League strugglers Everton for the season after The Toffees narrowly missed out on relegation last season.
, the Argentinan number ten is set for a spell in the Bundesliga this season after being loaned out to Avenue's feeder club Olimpic last season. He impressed in Bosnia with eight assists and two goals in 26 games in the Bosnian top-flight.
Algerian centre-back Abbes Bouchouk
is set for another season at Avenue's feeder club Olimpic after failing to attain a work permit to remain working in the UK. The defender brought stability to a failing back four and even scored four goals and assisted three in 28 games, finishing the season with a 7.50 average rating according to Prozone.
After such a bright start in the Premier League promotion season, where he started almost every game, Tony Cooke
has been loaned out again to Sheffield United in the Championship. The left-back played in League One last season as he helped Ipswich Town to a league title with six assists in 44 league games.
New signing Víctor Quiroz
has been immediately loaned out to Serie A giants ACF Fiorentina just days after arriving from being released by Chilean side Universidad de Chile. The left-winger is worth around £6.5M and Chabukiani will be hoping that value will rise with his development in Italy.
Finally, Avenue youth graduate John South
is set for a season in League Two as he joins Stevenage on a year-long loan. The striker played for Woking last season in the Vanarama National South, scoring three in ten games.
