Sunderland are the most expensive Premier League club to follow away from home via train with rivals Newcastle United a close second, new research has found.

Black Cats supporters would fork out a total of £2,155 to see their side at all 19 away games if they purchased rail tickets on the day, according to Trainline.

According to data released by the company, North East neighbours Newcastle come a close second with on the day prices totalling £1,981 per fan, followed by Swansea City and Norwich City with last minute costs of £1,529 and £1,494 respectively.

At the other end of the table, Aston Villa fans have the best deal with train fares at just £513 on average per season.

It is also revealed that fans can save on average £611 over the season by booking their tickets in advance rather than buying on the day.

Sunderland fans in particular could save £1,232 throughout the year - enough to buy themselves a home season ticket for 2015/16 (£370) with plenty of cash left over to buy 297 pies, 239 pints or 287 programmes.
