London: Premier League spending in the January transfer window rose this year but the biggest market agitators were once again the English top-flight's struggling clubs.

The 20 teams in England's highest division spent around £120 million ($190 million, 139 million euros) in transfer fees over the last month, according to business advisory firm Deloitte.

The figure was double the amount spent in January 2012 but well short of the record of £225 million established in 2011, when Fernando Torres joined Chelsea for £50 million and Andy Carroll went to Liverpool for £35 million.
