This is a list of foreign players in the Premier League , which commenced play in 1992. The following players must meet both of the following two criteria:
Clubs listed are those for which the player has played at least one Premier League game – and seasons are those in which the player has played at least one Premier League game. Note that seasons, not calendar years, are used. For example, "1992–95" indicates that the player has played in every season from 1992–93 to 1994–95, but not necessarily every calendar year from 1992 to 1995. Therefore, a player should always have a listing under at least two years – for instance, a player making his debut in 2011, during the 2011–12 season, will have '2011–12' after his name. This follows the general practice in expressing sporting seasons in the UK.
113 of the 207 foreign FIFA-affiliated nations have been represented in the Premier League. On 26 March 2021, Mauritania became the most recent country to be represented, with Aboubakar Kamara was called up and played for Mauritania.
In bold: players who have played at least one Premier League game in the current season (2020–21), and are still at a club for which they have played. This does not include current players of a Premier League club who have not played a Premier League game in the current season.
