Abstract
This paper evaluates the key determinants of transfer fees in the Premier League from June 2016 to January 2021. An Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) regression shows that performance, popularity, the remaining length in a player’s contract, and buying club characteristics are all significant determinants of transfer fees. Additional results illustrate the explanatory power of popularity and the role it plays in determining transfer fees.
