Value Youth Players £1 - £2

Youth players across the market are starting to increase in price once again. Alongside other causes, this is most likely due to the below reasons:

1. The dominant trend of buying high PB scoring players with lesser consideration for age has started to fade

2. Excitement in the market due to various reasons such as; heavy marketing push in 2020, Nasdaq, Order books, expansion of Football Index into other countries etc

3. Various incentives for selected customers (Including net bonuses) currently emerging to get more money into the market including extra incentives for referring new customers

To help you find value youth players, the Youth Player Database has been significantly improved and will be developed and updated further over the coming weeks.

Using this Youth Player Database, the below players that are currently between £1-2 stand out as possibly being of strong value - especially as longer term holds. Dwight McNeil highlighted twice in recent months at average price of £1.68 and Dejan Kulusevski highlighted at £0.92 have now broke this £2 barrier, but, could still be valuable holds for the coming months.
