The old conundrum of player loyalty has somewhat been diminished by the flamboyance of modern day footballers wreaking havoc with their multi-million pound wages. Season after season, transfer windows here and there, it is somewhat impossible to envisage stars not flocking from club to club in mega coups where the benefits are reaped by both parties.

With player loyalty becoming more of a rarity nowadays, Soccerlens has decided to look at 20 of football’s most loyal one-club stars – past and present.

Ryan Giggs
(Manchester United, 1987-present)

He has arguably established himself as The Red Devils’ greatest ever player and recently overtook the great Sir Bobby Charlton’s league appearance record against Liverpool – his 607th appearance in the Premier League.
Matthew Le Tissier
(Southampton, 1986-2002)

Despite never fulfilling his potential at an elite entity, he orchestrated some of the most beautiful pieces of technical genius in the red and white stripes of Southampton. The attacker made a total of 540 appearances for The Saints and netted 210 goals.
