The online estate agency compared the average property value in the areas surrounding each Premier League team with the price of their most expensive summer signings, following a mad summer of spending.

The cheapest properties in Premier League towns are in Burnley, averaging at a value of £114,518. At that value, Icelandic winger Johann Berg Gudmunsson's transfer fee of £2.6m could get you 22 houses in Burnley.
Unsurprisingly, the most expensive average house prices were in Chelsea, and after a relatively quiet transfer window they reside fairly low down this table. With the money they splashed on Belgian youngster Michy Batshuayi, you could buy a mere 33 Chelsea properties.
According to thisismoney.co.uk, the average house price in 1996 was £70,000. That year, Alan Shearer signed for Newcastle for a world record £15m, which would have got you 214 houses.
