Name: Jan Vertonghen

Age: 24

Nationality: Belgian

Club: Ajax

Position: CB

Value: around 3 mil iirc

Sale Value: around 8 million, can probably get it for less.

Work Permit Needed?: Nope

a good defender, rated 4 stars for my Newcastle team. Strong, good in the air and good playing the ball along the deck. He's an ideal signing for a team wanting to encourage possession football. And with only being 24, his average defensive stats will bounce up quite quickly.

That you only suggest Turkish/Turkish based players so your opinion should be ignored?

Think most have already seen that.

Name: Craig Dawson

Age: 21

Nationality: English

Club: West Brom

Position: CB

Value: Around £2m

Sale Value: I bought him for £3.7m

Work Permit Needed?: No

Fantastic price for a young, English defender who starts with good defensive stats. At only 21 I'm guessing he's got a lot of room to improve, my Newcastle scouts think he could be a leading Premier League defender.

Nationality: English

Club: West Brom

Position: Centre back

Value: £2.5m

Sale Value: I got him for £5m

Work Permit Needed? No.

I know his stats may not look all great, but he's young, he could learn, I brought him for Man City, and I was leaking a few goals, so decided to try him at the back, and I've not conceded in 5 matches, with an average rating of 7.53.

he's a regen fella... the pic gives it away

$od....I thought I'd gotten his name of the PA spoilers list since he was at Chivas in the first season. Apologies

Name: Alberto Lopo

Age: 30/31

Nationality: Spanish

Club: Getafe

Position: DC

Value: Not much... can be picked up for free after 6 months.

Sale Value: Given I got him for free and he's old you don't have a great sell on value - not sure how much he'd set you back at the very start either.

Conclusion: Good value, experienced centre back perfect for good Championship, lower Prem teams.

Name: Diego Novaretti

Age: 26

Nationality: Argentinian - Second Nationality Italian

Club: Toluca

Position: CB

Value: Don't remember exactly, somewhere around the £1m - 1.5m mark

Sale Value: £1.5m

Work Permit Needed?: No - Second Nationality is Italian

Cracking Centre half for a lower - mid table Prem side. Absolutely immense in my Villa game at the moment, and although he's only played 7 games so far (rotating out for cup games), he's scored 4 goals, got 2 assists and an 8.13 Average rating so far.

Value: 6.5M

Sale Value: 25M minimum.

Work Permit Needed?: Nope.

Absolute freak of nature. Future captain of any club he chooses to join as well as the french national team. Good for scoring from corners and in general contributes to the play. Averages 40+ passes per game and on average, launches 1 'key-pass' per game as well.

Now he's clearly not a world beater, but looks solid for lower league or backup to a decent side, £170k is his release clause so I can't really see how you can go wrong!

wish people would stop judging CB's on how many goals they score or their average rating because of the goals...

Name: Abdel El Kaoutari

Age: 21

Nationality: Moroccan

Club: Montpellier

Position: CB, can also play LB

Value: Unsure

Sale Value: I paid £5.25m second season.

Work Permit Needed?: Yes, should get.

Bought him at the beginning of season two as a newly promoted Premiership side, he's been solid since blending into the side and I made him my captain in season four. 3.5* rating according to my staff.

Oh & nice find Mikal, he looks great for that price.

Thanks :thup: I'd like to add Ivens will join mid-top Championship sides, so looks a real bargain, especially for that level.

Name: Salvatore Bocchetti

Age: 24

Nationality: Italian

Club: Rubin Kazan

Position: Natural CB, Accomplished Sweeper and DL

Value: $10.25M

Sale Value: ~$30M (note, American Dollars)

Work Permit Needed?: No? (Easy to get if so)

bocchetti.png

Bought him for Chelsea for $35M. 3.5 star potential (now 3.5 star rating). There is a picture of him going into my 3rd year. He's been my best CB by far, surpassing Terry, Luiz, and Ivanovic.

Genie stats:

Fixed PA of 166. Starting CA of 149. In my save, he started out as being available for $30.8M. In the picture, he is shown at 155 CA. His crossing, marking, influence, positioning, bravery, composure, concentration, strength, and acceleration can all increase one point.

Pros: His salary demands are not high at all, considering in the beginning of the game he's earning less than $25K a week. He is available for relatively cheap compared to many world class players, and he can go straight into the starting lineup of nearly any club.

Cons: The $30M price tag might scare away lower-mid level clubs.

Recommended role: Ball Playing Defender - Cover

Value: 300K

Sale Value: I got him for £1.2mil at the start of the 2nd season.

Work Permit Needed?: no

Has been a fantastic covering defender for my Pompey team. Has got good pace and good all-round CB stats, plus an excellent personality. Would be a good cheap option for any lower half Premiership teams, possibly even non-top 4 Premiership clubs.
