With the January player transfer window having now come to a close, estate agents across the UK will now be kept busy helping to find homes for the relocated players and their WAGs in their new surroundings. So, we took a look at these areas in a little more detail and compiled the Zoopla.co.uk Premier League Property Hotspots.
Oxshott in Surrey, home to ex-England captain John Terry and celebrity couple Jamie and Louise Redknapp, tops the list Premier League Property Hotspots with average property prices in a league of their own at an eye-watering £1,456,865. Wannabe WAGS will also be eyeing Hampstead in north London, in second place with average property values of £1,068,955 and a long-time favourite amongst Arsenal players including current Russian star Andrei Arshavin.
Those players and WAGs looking to surround themselves with premier league neighbours should look no further than Esher in Surrey, where a star-studded line-up of residents includes Chelsea and England star Frank Lampard and wife Christine Bleakley, Ashley Cole and Gary and Danielle Lineker and where the average property prices currently stand at £756,016.
