Muslim Football Players are among the best in the Barclays Premier League, this is the follow-up to the earlier Muslim Footballers post in the Premier League.
There have been a lot of player transfers in the January window, some Muslim Football Players have moved to different clubs whilst others have moved out, two notable transfers were, Demba Ba who moved from Newcastle United to Chelsea F.C and Nuri Sahin who left Liverpool F.C to go to his former club, Borussia Dortmund on loan from Real Madrid.
There have been more changes in other squads too.
Below you’ll find the updated list of Muslim Football Players in the premier after the January transfer window. Some have moved out of the Country whilst other Muslim Football Players have been transferred in to the Barclays Premier League so an update is required.
Below you’ll find the complete list of Muslim Football Players in the Premier League 2013, this is the definitive list until the summer transfer window opens in July and until the end of August 2013.
Hopefully we will see more Muslim Football Players coming in to the Premier League in the Summer, personally I would love to see Mesut Ozil and Frank Ribery arrive here as they are among the best Footballers in the World!
