Premier League shirt sponsorship deals have reached a record high in 2013/14 with the 20 top-flight clubs earning a combined £165.75million this season - an £18.65million increase on last year's total, according to a study carried out by

Arsenal have made the biggest leap, having renegotiated their deal with Fly Emirates, and stand to make £24.5million more than the £5.5million per year they received under the previous agreement - a grand total of £30million per season.

Astonishingly, the new arrangement means the Gunners will take £10million more than their nearest rivals when it comes to shirt sponsorship deals specifically, and more than all of the bottom 12 Premier League clubs combined on this list.

North London rivals Tottenham are the second biggest movers, bringing in £9million more income than they did in 2012/13, thanks largely to an additional shirt sponsorship deal agreed for domestic and European cup matches.

Sunderland are one of only three clubs that will actually make less money from shirt sponsorship this season; the Black Cats' deal with Invest in Africa - worth up to £20million per year - has ended, and replaced with a comparatively small £5million annual deal with Bidvest.

Newcastle United (Virgin Money to Wonga -£4million) and Aston Villa (Genting to -£3million) are the other two clubs that might be forced to tighten their purse strings this season.

Of the three newly-promoted sides, Hull City have the most lucrative shirt sponsorship deal - Crystal Palace (£750k), Cardiff City (£500k) - but the £1million per year they receive from Cash Converters is still minuscule compared to the bigger clubs at the opposite end of the scale.
