Despite their relegation, Newcastle United are ranked as the 20th most-valuable team in the world. West Ham United are also in the top-20 and will be expected to rise even higher in the table next-season with an improved television deal and the move to the Olympic Stadium.
NFL team, the Dallas Cowboys remain the most valuable sports-team in the world and are joined by rivals, the New England Patriots in the top-five. The American teams book-end the Spanish duo and Manchester United.
