WEST HAM skipper Mark Noble is the Premier League’s current longest-serving player of any club having broken into the Hammers first team in 2004.
Leighton Baines also featured on the list due to his years of service for Everton, while Harry Kane is incredibly Tottenham’s mainstay man.
The Premier League have compiled a list the longest-serving player for all 20 top-flight clubs, with players to be judged on when their last spell started.
For example Troy Deeney has been at Watford since 2010, but the Premier League have listed him as down with the Hornets since 2012 following the striker’s short stint in prison.
Here is a complete rundown on the full list.
ARSENAL – EMILIANO MARTINEZ (Since 2012)
The Argentinian shot-stopper, 27, has incredibly been on the books with the Gunners since 2010, but he didn’t earn his first appearance until the 2012/13 season.
To date, the ex-Reading loanee has featured in the six top-flight just six times, though he has racked up ten outings in all competitions this term.
ASTON VILLA – JACK GREALISH (Since 2013)
The Villans playmaker made his debut for the club at the end of the 2013/14 campaign, and has been a permanent member of the team ever since.
Incredibly still uncapped by England, the midfielder has been linked with summer moves to Manchester United and Arsenal.
BOURNEMOUTH – CHARLIE DANIELS (Since 2012)
The Cherries left-back, 33, initially joined the south coast side on loan in 2011, before the club turned his stay into a permanent move.
Since leaving Leyton Orient, Daniels has featured 264 times for Bournemouth, chipping in with 17 goals.
BRIGHTON – LEWIS DUNK (Since 2010)
The centre-back, 28, made his debut for the Seagulls during the 2009/10 campaign.
Now an England international, Dunk is closing in on 300 appearances for Graham Potter’s side.
BURNLEY – KEVIN LONG (Since 2010)
Since joining the Clarets from Irish side Cork City in 2020, the defender has been shipped off on six different loan spells.
The 29-year-old has featured just once in the Premier League this season.
CHELSEA – CESAR AZPILICUETA (Since 2012)
Signed from Marseille, the Spanish international has played a whopping 274 times for the Blues.
Helping the club to two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, one League Cup and two Europa Leagues, it’s fair to say the £7million recruit has been a success.
CRYSTAL PALACE – JOEL WARD (Since 2012)
Capable of playing anywhere across the backline, the 30-year-old has been a regular member of the starting XI for the Eagles.
The ex-Portsmouth ace has scored five goals in 237 matches for the South London side.
EVERTON – LEIGHTON BAINES (Since 2007)
Baines has appeared 411 times for the Toffees since joining from Wigan, and has achieved icon status at Goodison Park for staying with the club instead of moving on.
The 35-year-old has often found himself on the bench this season due to the form of ex-Barcelona full-back Lucas Digne.
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.
Appearing for the club 368 times, Schmeichel has won both the Championship and Premier League with the East Midlands side.
LIVERPOOL – JORDAN HENDERSON (Since 2011)
Kenny Dalglish raised eyebrows when he forked out £20million for the midfielder from Sunderland, but no-one is judging his quality now.
Reds skipper Henderson has transformed under Jurgen Klopp, with the German getting the best out of the energetic England man.
MANCHESTER CITY – DAVID SILVA (Since 2010)
Quite simply, one of the finest players that has ever graced the Premier League. Since joining from Valencia, the Spanish magician has graced fans with his unbelievable technique.
This season is Silva’s last season for the Citizens before he departs, and having won an abundance of trophies, he will go down as one of the best playmakers of his generation.
MANCHESTER UNITED – DAVID DE GEA/PHIL JONES (Since 2010)
While De Gea has become one of the world’s best goalkeepers since making the move to Old Trafford, Jones has suffered from inconsistency that has seen him become a figure of ridicule from fans.
Still the defender has won the league, FA Cup and the Europa League, so who’s the real winner?
NEWCASTLE – ROB ELLIOT (Since 2011)
The 33-year-old goalkeeper hasn’t featured for the club since the 2017/18 season due to the form of Martin Dubravka.
Never the Magpies’ permanent No1, the ex-Charlton man has impressed when called upon.
NORWICH – ALEXANDER TETTEY (Since 2012)
The combative midfielder is a huge fan favourite at Carrow Road – with the player staying with the club during two relegations to the Championship.
Soon to be turning 34, the Ghanaian-born Norway international remains a key part of Daniel Farke’s side.
SHEFFIELD UNITED – CHRIS BASHAM (Since 2014)
The 31-year-old has been at the club since their League One days, and has been a key figure that has seen the Blades rise into the Premier League.
Still an ever-present member of the squad, he has appeared in all of the club’s 28 top-flight games this term.
SOUTHAMPTON – JAMES WARD-PROWSE (Since 2012)
Still only 25, the England international is a veteran of 269 games for the Saints.
The midfielder is repeatedly linked with a move to a top team, but he continues to remain loyal to the club.
TOTTENHAM – HARRY KANE (Since 2011)
No-one would have expected Kane to be the lethal marksman he is today having been shipped off on loan to Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich and Leicester.
A two-time Premier League Golden Boot winner, the Three Lions captain is currently third on the list of Spurs’ all-time top scorers.
WATFORD – TROY DEENEY (Since 2012)
Deeney joined the Hornets from Walsall in 2010, and after serving three months in prison for affray, the striker was back playing for the club in September 2012.
In total, he has scored 129 goals in 388 games for Watford.
WEST HAM – MARK NOBLE (Since 2004)
Dubbed as “Mr West Ham” by fans, the popular midfielder is closing in on 500 games for the Hammers, while he has already banged in 60 goals for the club.
A two-time winner in the Championship play-offs, and a three-time Hammer of the Year, the 32-year-old has already secured his status as a club legend.
WOLVES – MATT DOHERTY (Since 2010)
Regarded as one of the best right-backs in the league, the Irish international has starred for the club since joining from Irish outfit Bohemians.
The full-back has banged in 15 goals in the last two seasons, and the player could be on the wishlist of a host of teams in the summer.
