Value Players Under £2

It is a strange time in both the real world and in the virtual world of Football Index right now.


Usually many of our trading decisions can be simply driven by recent performances, favourable upcoming fixtures and the strong market trends which are often formed based on the anticipation of certain events occurring in the Football world.


With football being placed temporarily on hold, trading decisions are mostly being influenced by transfer speculation and media dividends. However, what has become increasingly prevalent this week is traders buying into many young players who could earn dividends in the future.


Buying into young players is a theme which often occurs when there is a lack of opportunity to earn match day dividends in the short term, but may have also been brought on by two other strong influences:


  1. Jadon Sancho, a perfect example of the rewards on offer for buying into young players before they earn dividends, rising a huge amount in recent weeks as he has continued to earn plenty of media dividends. Sancho has set an example for how other young players can improve dramatically over the 3 years a share is valid for; both on the pitch and in terms of returning dividends.

  2. The net bonus period running may lead to purchases of potential longer term holds with what can be seen as a current 8.25% discount on such purchases.


Furthermore, quality young talents are often susceptible to transfer links which suits the most dominant market trend which is likely to last over the upcoming months with a lack of football.


Meanwhile, players who usually have a fairly strong chance of competing for match day dividends in the short term, but a low chance of earning media dividends are being largely neglected by the market as there are few reasons to buy these players right now. Once the situation around when games will be played again becomes clearer, we may start to see more potential match day dividends winners in the (In the 25+ age range) rising in price again.


For now, it may be wise to continue to buy into players who are either young, strong, longer term holds or players gaining transfer speculation. Below are more players who could be good value at their current price for the below reasons:
