The best relegated Premier League players this season
It was a dramatic final day of the Premier League season at the bottom end of the table.
Given the astronomical riches in the Premier League, a number of top stars now find themselves demoted to the EFL Championship.
Leeds’ two most valuable players are American in the form of midfielders Tyler Adams and Brendan Aaronson at €39.3 million and €35m, respectively.
Young goalkeeper Ilan Meslier is highly rated despite his struggles this year. He is valued at €28.8m.
Others who are worth a lot despite Leeds’ relegation are winger Jack Harrison at €27.8m, flop Georginio Rutter at €26.8m and Italian wonderkid Wilfried Gnonto at €25.3m. Gnonto is almost certain to leave this summer.
Leicester only won the Premier League in 2016 but their demise is now complete.
The Foxes have a number of stars who are certain to move to top clubs following this relegation.
Youri Tielemans is the highest valued player at €49m but will leave when his contract expires. Roma are interested.
Harvey Barnes is a big talent at €39.6m, while James Maddison is at €37.7m. Maddison will almost certainly depart and is liked by Tottenham.
Elsewhere, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (€34.1m), Wout Faes (€31.2m) and Timothy Castagne (€30m) have solid values and could bring in some much needed cash for a Leicester side that face financial problems.
Southampton's most-coveted player this summer will no doubt be James Ward-Prowse, who is valued at €39.3m. The England international will have a number of interested suitors.
The second-highest valued Southampton player is goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu at €26.1m.
Other highly-rated and highly-valued stars at Southampton are Armel Bella-Kotchap (€22.6m), Kamaldeen Sulemana (€21.4m), Romeo Lavia (€20.8m) and Tino Livramento (€20.1m). The latter duo have been linked to Arsenal.
