Newcastle players celebrate
The club says summer 2015 and January 2016 windows saw a net spend on transfers of just under £80m

Newcastle United have announced a profit of £32.4m after tax, an increase of £13.7m on the previous year.

Financial results for the year to 30 June 2015 show a cash balance of £48.3m. Turnover fell by less than 1% and debt remained static at £129m.

"We must remain positive and retain the belief that we can secure our Premier League status," he added.
