Premier League transfer window: Your comprehensive club-by-club list of completed summer moves in 2019 

Every Premier League club has now unveiled their 2019/20 home and away kits for the new season with third kits still to be unveiled.

They can range from the bizarre to the beautiful and from the most basic to the innovative, but it's never dull waiting to see the latest Premier League kit releases.

Granted, it feels like each year trying to buy them all for one team puts a strain on the bank balance, but which ones are worth the expense and which are ones to avoid?

Sportsmail will keep you up to date with all the third kit releases from every Premier League side throughout the summer as well as give our verdict on each strip's design...

Home kit

It's a new era at Arsenal on the kit front as Puma are out and adidas are back for the first time in 25 years.

Judging by their first strip for the Gunners on their return, supporters probably won't want them to leave again as they have produced an excellent kit, even by just keeping it simple.

The three stripes are tastefully added and the trim around the neck and sleeves both serves as a past tribute to previous adidas Arsenal kits, yet also perfectly compliments the design. Can it help bring the good times back to the Emirates Stadium though?

HOME KIT VERDICT: 9/10 

Arsenal officially launched their new adidas home kit ahead of the 2019-20 campaign

Away kit

Arsenal's away kit from the early 1990s has always been a favourite with fans, but simply bringing it back nearly 30 years on, as tempting as it is, would perhaps cause it to lose its allure.

So adidas have done the next best thing and produced a new away strip with a modern look yet still features detail from the famous strip worn by the likes of Ian Wright, who was also part of the new kit unveiling.

The yellow shirt contains faint navy lines across the strip, which is enough to be noticeable but not enough to otherwise take over a neat looking yellow number. It's hard to see how it can be improved greatly.

Home kit 

Aston Villa are back in the Premier League and are back in traditional gear for their top flight return.

Their traditional claret tops and blue sleeves are the first for new kit supplier Kappa, which also sees them pinch the sponsor used by local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers last term.

All round it's a decent no thrills kit, if you can see past the dodgy uneven sleeves.

Away kit

It's all going rather too well at Aston Villa. There's usually disaster waiting around some corner. But off the back of promotion to the Premier League and the unveiling of a smart new home kit, they also have a decent away strip on their hands.

For the first time in over a decade they will feature a predominately sky blue kit, which looks even better when it is paired with the claret shorts and socks.

Home kit

Good effort from Umbro. Not only have they managed to keep the tradition of a Bournemouth kit true with black and red stripes but they have managed to make it fresh.

The Cherries' recent offerings had become a little stale, but with red sleeves and a stitched in faded red stripe going across the kit this should keep the fans content ahead of a fifth consecutive Premier League campaign.

Away kit

Bournemouth fans were made to wait long into the summer before seeing their new away kit but was it worth the wait?

Indeed it is. A stylish navy number is being offered this term, with patterned detail on the shoulders to give it some feature.

The shorts feature a dash of random pink trim but that is not ruining this kit.

AWAY KIT VERDICT: 7/10

Third kit

As third kits go, this is about as close as you can get to being vibrant and tidy.

And if it was any other club we would give it a solid score, but the Cherries lose points by releasing a green third kit that somehow lacks originality.

Why? Because this effort from Umbro is almost like-for-like exactly the same change strip that the Cherries wore in the 2016-17 campaign.

THIRD KIT VERDICT: 5/10

Home kit and away kit

Brighton only just narrowly fended off Premier League relegation last term but before May was out already revealed a couple of brand new kits for 2019-20.

The home strip ditches the thick stripes from 2018-19 - opting for a more contemporary design with some neat detail being applied to within the blue stripes - arguably their best home kit since promotion.

Sadly though the away kit does not have the same excitement going for it. It's a standard black strip with very little else to go on and therefore is rather forgettable.

Home kit

If you are a neutral, you may think this is just another standard Burnley kit but the devil is in the details for what is actually a smart design.

For a start the strip shows off the classic traditional features of a Burnley home shirt - an all claret front with light blue sleeves and subtle neck trim.

It does not happen as much as much as you think it would, and to cap it off it is made by Umbro who return as suppliers for the first time since 1981.

Sadly the great traditional look is slightly spoiled by the very modern and untidy gambling sponsorship logo.

HOME KIT VERDICT: 7/10 

For this season, Umbro will supply Burnley with their match kits for the first time since 1980

Away kit

Burnley have produced some bland away strips recently - last season in particular they had an all-black and an all-white design.

But this is much more like it from those down at Umbro as they have unveiled an attractive blue number with subtle design patterns on the chest.

The patterns are based on the 1991-1993 home shirt graphics and unsurprisingly the modern twist has triumphed again over 90s fashion standards.

Home kit

Swing and a miss. There is a fine line to be trodden on when trying to design a kit with a crazy pattern in the shading.

An example of how to do it right comes with Mexico's 1998 World Cup kit, and even they had the advantage of the fashion crime amnesty being in force for much of the 1990s.

The Blues though have no such defence and even Eden Hazard looks like he is thinking he would rather be elsewhere while wearing it judging by the club's promotional pictures.

Hazard, pictured in the 2019-20 kit, has since signed for Real Madrid since the strip's launch

Away kit

Nothing unusual at first glance at the Chelsea away strip - much of it is quite standard for the west London side, with a white kit being complimented by red and blue trim.

But look at that collar. Been a while since we saw a proper one of those on a Chelsea strip - complete with smart buttons too.

It looks like a polo top, and takes its influence from the Mod scene of the 1960s. Either way it is a throwback we can get behind.

AWAY KIT VERDICT: 8/10

Home kit

No thrills stuff, right? To the neutral it's a standard Crystal Palace kit with red and blue stripes - but Eagles supporters may have noticed a subtle difference elsewhere.

The yellow trim which has been on their shirts since they were promoted to the top flight for the 2013-14 season has now gone and has been replaced by white, which is included as a stylish stripe across blue sections of the shirt.

Otherwise yes it is just your standard Crystal Palace shirt. Still, Puma have tried to do something different and they have proven you don't have to be radical to make notable changes.

HOME KIT VERDICT: 7/10

Away kit

Credit where it is due to Crystal Palace. In an era when most clubs use away kits to use every colour they can think of to promote originality, they have stuck with a rotation of white, yellow and black and often made it work.

A case in point - this season's away strip. The black strip features the red and blue Palace colours down the front and on the shoulders, with the look broken up by wavy black lines.

It sounds horrendous but the final look is anything but. It's a cracker from Puma and not even the messy sponsor can ruin it.

Home kit

For years now kit designers have been telling us about how a brand new strip features some sort of technical innovation that improves performance.

But in recent times, the more modern way of marketing a kit has been to base a design off an inspiration no matter how tenuous the link is. 

Some are more ridiculous than others and Everton are certainly treading a fine line with a new home kit that features criss-cross patterns based on the design aspects as seen inside their home ground Goodison Park.

Total nonsense? Yes. But is the kit good anyway? It's outstanding, and you don't have to know anything about Archibald Leitch to appreciate it.

HOME KIT VERDICT: 9/10

Everton debuted their new home kit during a friendly over Kenyan side Kariobangi Sharks

The shirt takes inspiration from the Goodison Park architecture designed by Archibald Leitch 

Away kit

When league titles seem a long way away, perhaps the only thing left is to cling onto memories of previous success.

Except Everton fans can't even do that with their new away kit, which is based on the top flight winners from the 1890-91 season - nearly a good 100 years before 'football was invented'.

Coral and navy blue are the official colours, if salmon is too low brow, and it has been used twice before as an away kit between 1992 and 1994 as well as, with black trim instead of blue, 2001-02. Still, it's a decent refresh of an away kit for the Toffees.

AWAY KIT VERDICT: 7/10 

Theo Walcott (centre) helped unveil Everton's coral and navy blue away strip for the season

Home kit

In terms of replica tops, there is not much change at all for Leicester City aside from a switch back to gold trim following a season with white complimenting their blue tops. In truth it feels like the shirts have not changed for nearly half-a-decade but there is minor check details in the fabric.

The major change occurs with the shorts, which have reverted back to white from blue for the first time since the days of Nigel Pearson as boss in 2015. The Foxes were battling relegation in those days but the future looks a little brighter under Brendan Rodgers.

HOME KIT VERDICT: 6/10 

Leicester City wore their 2019-20 home strip on the final day of last season against Chelsea

Away Kit

It's hard to get a pink strip wrong. Everton nearly did it around a decade ago when they made the colour too strong but this from Leicester is superb.

Granted, it takes a template from a Germany World Cup strip from 2018 - which means it makes little sense on the kit given that design has a symbolic meaning to the country's World Cup success.

Still though football is about fun, and it's really not worth fussing about and sending in the stretched resources of the football fashion police.

However, with a black third strip featuring black shorts, why does the away strip also have to have black shorts? 

AWAY KIT VERDICT: 8/10

Third kit

Leicester City are no strangers to black kits, with the Foxes... what do you mean it's not black?!

Apparently the colour is 'dark grey heather'. All we know is while it looks tidy enough and has a neat pattern on the front, it is hardly one to remember and does not look as good as the pink strip.

It also means that a new goalkeeper kit is on the way, as that too is black... or dark grey heather.

THIRD KIT VERDICT: 6/10

Home kit 

Liverpool have released their new 2019-20 home kit and while there is little surprise that it is red, there is a return to the strip that has not been seen since 1984.

Pin stripes are back in vogue at Anfield having last featured on the home kit when they lifted their fourth European Cup. 

It would have been nicer if the stripes went the full way up the kit, but maybe the idea of falling short helped blend the old design with a modern concept.

All jokes aside, this is smart strip and a good offering from New Balance in the final year of their Reds deal. 

HOME KIT VERDICT: 8/10 

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Alisson and Naby Keita were pictured showing off the kit

Away kit

When you are European champions you can do what you want, but the away kit Jurgen Klopp's men will be playing in away from Anfield at certain grounds next term is unlikely to live long in the memory.

That's unless they go and win 5-0 at Manchester United of course, but from an aesthetic point of view it's not really got much going for it.

The white shirt, navy shorts and white socks design does not have anything wrong with it as such... just it does not really stand out. Neat and tidy and looks ok but otherwise it's just a white shirt.

Third kit

There's always a danger when releasing a black kit that it could just end up being a boring after thought - especially if the colour is used often on a change strip.

In the case of the latter, Liverpool fall into that category. But New Balance look like they may have just done enough to make their third kit slightly more distinctive.

The cyan trim is a nice touch, and while the front of the shirt makes it look like they are playing in kits made of carbon fibre, you will see far worse patterned displays.

Home kit

When you are England's first champions to defend their title in ten years you have earned the right to produce something a bit leftfield, and Manchester City have certainly done that!

The new home strip looks simple enough, even with the trim but on closer inspection (and in the cold light of day outside of fancy PR pictures) the trim for the first time ever is a purple colour.

It's based on the city's industrial heritage, but it is going to take some getting used to. Once we do, it will of course be time to release another round of new kits...

Away kit

Black kits have become a bit cliched over the years but City might have done just enough here to keep the concept interesting.

Their strip is based on the famous Manchester nightclub, The Hacienda, which throughout the 1980s and 1990s helped produce the 'Madchester' scene. 

Blue and peach help add some additional colour to the yellow trim complete with a badge that this season celebrates 125 years of the club.

Third kit

Here it is, the most lazy use of the word 'inspired' yet. City's new third strip for next season is apparently a reflection of the team's style of football that saw them retain the Premier League title. 

It also means they will tour parts of the country dressed like a pack of Barratt's Fruit Salads - which to be fair is arguably the confectionery sweet of champions.

It serves a purpose in being distinctly different to the away kit and home kit but it looks a bit too garish and is going to look a little ridiculous on a bitterly cold winter's day on the road.

THIRD KIT VERDICT: 6/10 

Man City trio Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling (M) and Leroy Sane (R) launched the third kit

Home kit

When you have just endured a horror campaign, there's only one thing you can do when you're a fallen giant. Look back on the good old days!

And of course for Manchester United that means partying like it's 1999 and releasing a strip based on the treble year.

United fans will recognise that shield crest from their Champions League winning kit from anywhere, and just in case there was any doubt of it's homage to that 'one night in Barcelona' - the kit even has the date on it.

But while the strip is a smoke and mirrors distraction to the carnage at Old Trafford in the present day, it looks great - especially as the traditional white shorts have returned too. 

HOME KIT VERDICT: 8/10 

Alex Greenwood, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard helped reveal the new Manchester United kit

The strip pays homage to the kit Manchester United used to win the treble in 1999

Away kit

With all the carnage on the pitch in recent times, Manchester United supporters can at least take some comfort that off the pitch at least some things are going to plan.

In addition to their new and improved home kit, they also have a striking new away design, with a savannah coloured inspired strip nicely complimented by clean black trim.

It features a unique patterned design within its fabric, and has a few shades of the gold coloured strip from 2001-02. It's a win at Anfield away from becoming a firm favourite.

Home kit

Here we are then, quite possibly the laziest attempt at producing a tribute kit to past glories ever seen.

Newcastle's latest home kit is nod towards the team that 50 years ago won the Fairs Cup - the predecessor to the UEFA Cup/Europa League and not even recognised by UEFA.

Except it contains very little features that distinguish it to any other Newcastle kit before and since that season, barring the collar black and white collar.

The good news is though that the reduced amount of stripes and tonal badge actually give the home design a fresh look. So in summary, nothing wrong with the kit - just a bit needless to bring in a long dead tournament to promote it.

Away kit

There won't be many supporters that are green with envy at the situation playing out off the pitch at Newcastle United.

But a few of them may wish they had an away kit similar to the one the Toon will be playing in this term.

Granted, it's not a massive head turner. But the mixture of dark greens is a fresh look offered and is one of the smarter away kits on offer this term.

AWAY KIT VERDICT: 7/10

Newcastle United wore their new away kit for the first time in a friendly at Preston North End

Third kit

You would have thought football clubs would be running out of inspiration to base their new football kits on, but Newcastle have found a new direction with their third strip.

Of course the first thing to note is that there will be no danger of the Toon players struggling to pick out a team-mate - with their kit a bright orange. Just their second in history after the rarely used strip during 2011-12.

But those random patterns on the shirt are not random at all, as it is based on the club's St James's Park roof... of course it is.

THIRD KIT VERDICT: 7/10 

Newcastle United's third kit featured detail from the St James's Park roof

Home kit

Thinking of a design for the new Norwich City home kit obviously was not too taxing for the folks over at Errea.

It really could not have drifted that much further away from 'do what Tottenham and Manchester United did for 2018-19.'

Regardless of how they decided Norwich's first new Premier League kit for four years, Errea have produced a catchy number. The neck is a little busy, but that is not enough to ruin a decent kit.

HOME KIT VERDICT: 8/10

Away kit

It's a thumbs up from the Norwich City players for the new away kit, with the Canaries going on the road with an unfamiliar red strip next term.

Unfamiliar but not unprecedented as the club did go red alert on their travels during the 2007-8 season.

It's a thumbs up too from us, with Errea producing a bold fresh design for fans with the red kit well complimented by yellow trim.

Third kit

Black and grey. Hardly the most inspiring of colours are they. Yet somehow, Errea have made a damn good third kit out of the combo.

They have even done it by making the dullest of colours, pencil grey, the primary colour, complimenting it with black trim on the sleeves and buttoned collar.

The woven in pattern on the bottom left of the strip that fades as it creeps up is also a nice touch. Perhaps most importantly, Norwich now have three strips of completely different colour. No kit clash dangers for the Canaries this term.

THIRD KIT VERDICT: 7/10 

Norwich City released their third strip just a week before the start of the season

Home and away kit

No thrills added from Sheffield United on the kit stakes as they return to the Premier League for the first time in 12 years.

And in fairness none are needed in a home strip which for the most part has a similar template to the kit that won promotion from the Championship. Aside from a new sponsor the main difference is the reversal of the red and white colouring.

Likewise the white away kit also offers little to take notice of, but it's smart enough and Blades fans will agree it will look even better with Premier League badges on the side.

Home, away and third kit

Swing and a miss. Southampton launched their new kits with a 'mockumentry' which like the kits, seemed to have been a good idea that has lost its way.

The home kit retains the Saints stripes, but the black shoulder panel makes the kit rather too busy - and it's not helped by a new sponsor failing to blend with the design.

The away kit of black and yellow is the best of a bad bunch and makes best use of the shoulder panel template, while the white based third strip suffers from the same problems as the home kit albeit to a lesser extent

Home kit

Superb strategy from those folks at Nike. In the previous year's home strip they added a nonsensical blue fade to the bottom of the shirt and ruined what otherwise would have been an acceptable Spurs kit.

Little did we know they were just playing the long game. For this year they have removed the fade added some trim on the bottom of the sleeves and got a brand new kit out of it.

That's certainly one way of refreshing a new kit every year. Spurs fans though have a problem, for the sixth consecutive season, in that there is still a big red sponsor logo accompanying their primary colours.

Away kit

You can't really go wrong with a navy away shirt around White Hart Lane, yet somehow Nike fudged last year's attempt with the addition of a lighter blue that made it look like a pajama top.

But this is much more like a traditional Spurs away kit, with the navy tone perfect and the additional pattern on the chest adding some detail while not being all that intrusive either.

The bad news for the shirt is that it has a good chance of being better than the yet to be released third shirt, which by Tottenham's logic means they will probably only wear ever it twice.

Home kit

Perhaps in an era when many teams slightly alter their home shirts each year and then charge supporters £60 for the privilege of owning it, it is refreshing to see Watford year-on-year drastically alter the arrangement of their home colours.

Yes, yes, it shows a lack of tradition in a club's shirt identity but given tradition has been collapsing in all corners of football over the years, there are far worse crimes in the game than drastically altering home strips.

Unprecedented yellow and black stripes have been replaced by an unprecedented half-half shirt and it works well enough for us with the red adidas trim also a nice compliment.

Away kit

It was always going to be difficult to replace the popular green away strip from last season (at least if you want to keep cashing in commercially), but adidas may have just done that.

Their patterned navy blue away strip looks superb - and that's even taking into account the rather ugly betting sponsor on the front.

Home and Away kit

Everyone loves a throwback and that's exactly the route West Ham United have gone down for their home and away kits heading into next season.

The 2019-20 will mark 40 years since the club's famous FA Cup win over Arsenal at Wembley which remains their last major trophy.

So it's a return to the strips from the era, with the home kit featuring a blue chest panel which was a constant feature from the mid-1970s until 1980.

The away kit borrows claret and blue elements from the Cup winning strip on the sleeves and neck, and is the pick of the two, with the home design perhaps a strip only a mother... or a fan could love.

AWAY KIT VERDICT: 7/10

Third kit

Nothing too thrilling from Umbro here, but at the very least it is not going to be a strip that divides opinion between supporters too much.

The navy colours are well complimented by the pink trim, with a woven pattern weaved into the front of the kit to give it some sort of character.

It's unlikely to become a favourite in years to come (unless they win a Wembley final in it) but it has just enough going on to keep fans satisfied.

Home kit

Wolves' first season back in the top flight saw adidas give them a classy home kit even if it was a little brighter than fans were perhaps used to.

So for this season the tone has darkened slightly, and if that still is not enough, the home strip features pop art like darker splashes of gold to compliment a very attractive kit (if you can see past the sponsor.)

The socks are black for the first time since 2008 as Nuno Santos' side play in major European competition for the first time since 1980.

HOME KIT VERDICT: 8/10

Black socks return to the home kit for the first time since the 2007-08 campaign

Away kit

If there is one side in the Premier League that does not really need use of an away kit, it is Wolves.

As such there is not much fanfare for a change kit around Molineux, but there still has to be one for the clash with Norwich City... and of course for commercial reasons too.

Last season it was predominately white, this term it's back to black (it normally is every other year at least) and although you may not see much of it, it's quite a tidy strip well complimented by golden socks.

AWAY KIT VERDICT: 7/10
