SA Players Abroad

A number of South Africa's most promising players are already seeing their market values skyrocket in Europe, with one former Orlando Pirates starlet, in particular, standing head and shoulders above his peers. Here are SA's most valuable U21 players abroad.

Former Bucs forward Lyle Foster tops the list of Mzansi's most valuable youngsters overseas, with the current AS Monaco starlet valued at €1.3 million (R24 million). The 19-year-old spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Cercle Brugge and will see his market value climb even further if he breaks through at his parent club next season.

Staying in Denmark, the top three is rounded out by HB Koge forward Liam Jordan, who is worth a reported €250 000 (R4.7 million). The Durban-born youngster has become an established player for the second division side since arriving in 2018 and has already made 69 senior appearances for the club.
