Leeds United Premier League rank shared after £292.1m squad value claim

Leeds United have the 13th most expensive squad in the Premier League, according to recent research published on the Tomkins Times.

The squads are adjusted for inflation and do take into account the ages and injury records of players to give a more balanced overall perspective.

They also have a vastly more expensive playing eleven with regards to their bench in comparison to other teams in the leagues that have costly players sitting in reserve as well.

Fair reflection

The position on this table is a fair reflection of how rich the club is in comparison to the other teams in the league.

Seeing Southampton above Leeds may come as a surprise but on careful viewing, it’s a mistake and Leeds should ideally be above them and in 13th place.

Wolves, for example, signed a lot of big-name players in the Championship and they got promoted with a really strong squad.

Leeds, in comparison, used the promotion money wisely to make good signings like Raphinha, Rodrigo and also brought in numerous defenders.

Had Kalvin Phillips or Raphinha not been sold this summer, they possibly would’ve been closer to Wolves and if both stayed, arguably even more than the West Midlands club.

Hopefully, the young players Leeds have signed only get better and so will their valuation and we can expect them to then be closer to the top 10.

In other Leeds United news, an Elland Road-linked midfielder is now certain to leave his club in the coming weeks as a host of Premier League clubs are vying for his services.
