Everton Birthday Boy: Seamus Coleman’s PL bargains XI
Down the years, a large number of players have signed for clubs for minimal fees whilst other teams somehow manage to waste fortunes searching for the right type of player.
Despite the heavy investment from foreign owners in the past decade, it has become a delightful sight to see a player sign for a near-nothing price and prove his weight in gold within a short space of time.
Take Everton’s Seamus Coleman, for example, who was once picked up from Sligo Rovers by David Moyes for a mere £60k. He’s now seen as one of Europe’s top attacking full-backs and a key member of the Toffees’ starting Xi.
Earlier this week, the Ireland international turned 28 years of age. So to celebrate his birthday, we at Football FanCast have created this select XI composed entirely of the Premier League’s best bargain buys.
Here’s 11 players that make up our bargain team of the Premier League era.
