Top 10 footballers that made a ‘large’ impact via a ‘little’ transfer fee

Is there anything more personally satisfying than spotting and indeed purchasing something we consider a true bargain? Football is no different from spotting that t-shirt for half the price during the springtime sales and every year there are a few players who go on to make an instant impact in terms of goals, clean sheets, leadership and crucially a winning mentality, more than repaying the small outlay spent on purchasing their talents in the process.

When we cast an eye back over yesteryear, stellar Premier League talents such Manchester United’s Roy Keane, Liverpool’s Sami Hyypia and Arsenal’s Nicolas Anellka were purchased for what we would now consider an absolute steal.

With many football outsiders swiftly frowning on the vast sums of money now utilised in modern day football, even those of us immersed in the beautiful game would admit that figures such as £50 million that are being bandied about ever so frequently are unimaginable to the man in the street.

With the global interest and increasing mega-rich Middle-Eastern investments in football, sky-high transfer fees aren’t likely to cease anytime soon, if ever, so we decided to focus our attentions on the top 10 cut price deals that truly represented excellent value for money, providing a diversion from the rather pricy end of the market. Join in this celebration of the players who possessed a little transfer fee going on to provide a large impact.
