Every current Premier League club ranked by their greatest homegrown player

15 Jul

Clubs take great pride in promoting the most talented of players from their academy.

Sadly it’s become a rarity in the modern game to see young players secure a place in the starting line-up of the first team, but there have been many outstanding academy graduates down the years.

Who, then, could be considered the greatest homegrown player in the Premier League?

talkSPORT.com has picked the best academy graduate for each current top flight club in England, in order of quality.

Scroll through the gallery above to find out who has been selected.

N.B. Only players who made their senior football debut during the Premier League era (1992/93 season onwards), having represented the same club at youth level, are included. The club cannot have paid any fee or compensation to sign them (for example, the compensation paid by Arsenal to Barcelona for Cesc Fabregas rules him out of consideration for this homegrown ranking).
