Premier League

Six Currently Longest-serving active players in the English Premier League (2021/2022)

It is often remarked that there is no loyalty in football any more, but many players do defy the trend and stay with a club long enough to receive a testimonial.At the time of writing, there are only eight players currently playing for Premier League sides who have been at their club for more than 10 years. Here we count down these top five, in ascending order of their time at their club.

5 Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) - Since 25 August, 2011

Phil Jones (Manchester United) - Since 13 June, 2011

4 LEICESTER - KASPER SCHMEICHEL (Since 2011)

The Foxes were the Denmark international's NINTH club he joined before the age of 25, but he has found his home in Leicester and has never looked back since arriving. Schmeichel has won both the Championship and Premier League with the East Midlands side.

3 Jordan Henderson (Liverpool) - Since 9 June, 2011

Signed from Sunderland in 2011, Henderson was put through the mill at Merseyside, nearly leaving for Fulham in 2012. There was talk of him being a like-for-like Steven Gerrard replacement, but Henderson has certainly carved his own career and style of play at Liverpool since Gerrard left in 2015.Having been criticised in the early part of his Liverpool career, Henderson has established himself as a first team regular and captained the side to a Champions League win last season.

2 Seamus Coleman (Everton) - Since January 2009

Coleman had to have surgery on a career-threatening infected blister, which delayed his Everton debut. But after getting the all clear from club doctors, the right-back made his first appearance in a 5-0 defeat to Benfica in the Europa League.

1 Mark Noble (West Ham) - Since August 2004

Nobobody on this list has been at one club longer than Noble has been at West Ham.

The midfielder made his first-team debut in 2004 and is still one of the first names on the team sheet fifteen and a half years later.

“I’m 33 in May. I’ve been doing this for 15/16 years of my life. It’s half my life,” Noble told talkSPORT earlier this season. “At a club at this level with the money we’ve spent, you can’t rely on me. You can’t rely on me to come on at half-time during an FA Cup game – that shouldn’t be like that.”
