Plunging pound has Premiership clubs shopping within UK

The plunging pound is set to see Premiership clubs shopping more within the UK this January.

"The party is over," one leading French-based agent told The Times.

The agent told The Times last night: "It used to be simple. As a rule of thumb, if a player earned €100 in France, you could be sure he could get £200 in England, maybe more. Well, now that £200 is worth €200, so all of a sudden it's not as attractive.

"And then there are the transfer fees. An English club might be willing to spend £3 million on a central defender and, for that money, you could get a good solid pro, because it was €4.5 million. But now, £3 million is €3 million. And you can't get the same quality for that amount."
