(2018) Top 10 Englishmen playing abroad

Note — Players on loan in foreign countries from UK based clubs were not considered for the list.

10 — Curtis Edwards — Östersunds FK (Sweden)

9 — Adam Le Fondre — Sydney FC (Australia)

8 — Daniel Crowley — Willem II* (Netherlands)

Former Arsenal midfielder Daniel Crowley is no stranger to the Netherlands. The 21 Year old had a loan spell at the incredibly named Go Ahead Eagles whilst still under contract at the Gunners, but he moved to Willem II after his contract with the London based club expired. He’s since played 16 games for the Superkruiken since 2017, and has spent this year out on loan at fellow Dutch side SC Cambuur, who play in the Eerste Divisie, Dutch Football’s second tier. Crowley is above the likes of Le Fondre due to being just 21, and having a very decent future ahead of him.

7 — Jack Price — Colorado Rapids (United States)

6 — Ronaldo Vieira — Sampdoria (Italy)

5 — Chuba Akpom — PAOK (Greece)

4. Ravel Morrison — Lazio (Italy)

3 — Bradley Wright-Phillips — New York Red Bulls (United States)

2 — Jadon Sancho — Borussia Dortmund (Germany)

1 — Wayne Rooney — DC United (United States)
