List of one-club men
A one-club man is a term used to describe a football player who has played his entire professional career with only one club. In the strictest definition, one-club men are rare in football due to the effects of the promotion and relegation systems used by most professional leagues. Promotion and relegation creates the tendency for (mostly younger) players to be loaned out, for players to move for financial reasons (most often the case if the club is relegated) and for (mostly older) players to play at a lower level in order to prolong their careers.
- Players (past or present) must have been at their club for a minimum of ten years in order to be included here. Loan spells at other teams disqualify players from being counted in the list. Only seasons with appearances in the senior first team are counted. Current players who have been at their club since 2002 will be eligible for inclusion in 2012. Some can be seen here.
