Homegrown Player Lists for 2013/14 Premier League Squads

The 20 teams in the Premier League have unveiled their homegrown players for the 2013/14 season

Before we reveal the homegrown players rule, here’s a refresher on the squad rules thanks to the BBC Sport. Important notes are bolded.

– Clubs register a squad of up to 25 players, which must include at least eight ‘home-grown’ players, at the end of each transfer window.

– Home-grown players do not have to be English; home-grown players are defined as those who “irrespective of nationality or age, have been affiliated to the FA or Welsh FA for a period of three seasons or 36 months prior to 21st birthday

– Clubs can supplement squad with unlimited number of players under the age of 21.

– Players loaned to Football League clubs cannot be replaced, but can regain their spot on return to parent club.

– Rules apply only to Premier League matches, not European, FA Cup or League Cup action

With unlimited use of under-21 players, clubs with a large intake of youth players — even foreign ones — do have advantages under this system. For example, Arsenal did not have to name Jack Wilshere to the squad, and Southampton did not have to name any of their young outstanding English players to the squad. This gives these teams an advantage with deeper squads than those who have a poor academy or lack the resources to buy players from the continent at age 17-18 and integrate them in the club’s youth setup.
