This summer, Premier League clubs have seen several of their longest serving players depart for new challenges.
Arsenal have lost club captain Laurent Koscielny to Bordeaux in bizarre circumstances, having joined the club in 2010 from Lorient.
The Gunners also lost academy player Carl Jenkinson, who moved to Nottingham Forest after injuries plagued his Arsenal career and he was unable to nail down a place in the squad.
Chelsea also said goodbye to Eden Hazard after seven seasons in West London, and they too lost a long-serving academy player with Tomas Kalas leaving the club after nine years.
Vincent Kompany departed from Man City to join Anderlecht as a player-coach, and was the last player at the club to pre-date the takeover from Sheikh Mansour in September 2008.
Brighton were another club to bid farewell to their captain, as Bruno Saltor retired from playing after seven seasons with the Seagulls to become part of the coaching staff.
But who is the current longest serving player at every club? We take a look…
Arsenal – Emiliano Martinez
The Argentine goalkeeper is not exactly a household name, but after Petr Cech retired he looks set to become Arsenal’s second choice keeper this season behind Bernd Leno.
Now 26, Martinez joined the Gunners in 2010 and has had six loan spells away from North London in England and Spain.
Aston Villa – Jack Grealish
Club captain Grealish first appeared on the scene for Villa as a 16-year-old when he was an unused sub against Chelsea in 2012.
After sticking with the club during their three-year stint in the Championship, the attacking midfielder is revered at Villa Park, despite being just 23.
Bournemouth – Harry Arter
The central-midfielder signed from Woking for a fee believed to be £4000 in 2010, when the club were in League 1.
Arter, now 29, was a regular since his arrival as Bournemouth navigated the league to take the Premier League by storm under Eddie Howe.
However, he will not spend the season at Bournemouth for the second season in a row, joining Fulham on loan for this season after spell at Cardiff last campaign.
Brighton – Lewis Dunk
Dunk, 27, made his debut against MK Dons in May 2010.
An academy graduate, he has been with the club since their League 1 days, and is now an England international and club captain after Bruno’s retirement.
Burnley – Kevin Long
The towering centre-back was signed in 2010 from boyhood club Cork City, but has never cemented a starting place at Burnley .
The Irishman has spent time on loan at six clubs, but has been a squad player for Burnley in the last three seasons.
Chelsea – Jamal Blackman
Blackman has no Chelsea appearances to his name, but first made the step up to the first team by making the bench against Arsenal in October 2011.
Despite successful loan spells at Wycombe and Sheffield United, Blackman has yet to find a real home in football.
Crystal Palace – Joel Ward
Ward joined Palace from Portsmouth in 2012, and last season was the first where the fullback played less than 10 league games.
With Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s departure to Man United, Ward is expected once again to step up into a starting role at Selhurst Park.
Everton – Leighton Baines
If Phil Jagielka hadn’t rejoined boyhood club Sheffield United, he would have pipped Baines to the title at Everton , having joined a month and three days before Baines moved from Wigan.
Baines is an Everton legend, and has stayed with the Toffees despite repeated interest from Manchester United some seasons ago.
The set-piece specialist was the first defender to reach 50 Premier League assists in April 2017.
Leicester – Andy King
King began his Leicester career in 2006, and is a hero around the King Power Stadium, having played for the club in League 1 and been part of their unbelievable Premier League title win in 2016.
He did not make a league appearance last season for the Midlanders, and spent the last half of the season on loan at Derby.
Liverpool – Jordan Henderson
Signed from Sunderland in 2011, Henderson has been through the mill Merseyside, nearly leaving for Fulham in 2012.
There was talk of him being a like-for-like Steven Gerrard replacement, but Henderson has certainly carved his own career and style of play at Liverpool since Gerrard left in 2015.
Having been criticised in the early part of his Liverpool career, Henderson has established himself as a first team regular and captained the side to a Champions League win last season.
Man City – David Silva
The Spaniard joined City from Valencia initially as a winger in 2010, but has established himself as one of the best attacking midfielders the Premier League has seen.
Following the departure of Vincent Kompany, Silva will captain City in what he has confirmed will be his tenth and final season at the club.
Man United – Chris Smalling
Smalling has never really lived up to the expectations that were placed upon him when Sir Alex Ferguson brought him to United in 2010 from Fulham.
Despite over 300 appearances for United, Smalling has yet to convince United fans that he can be trusted to be a reliable starter at the club.
Newcastle – Rob Elliot
The goalkeeper joined from Charlton in 2011, and has been first, second and third choice keeper at Newcastle .
Last season he did not make a league appearance, and is behind Martin Dubravka and Karl Darlow in the pecking order.
Newcastle fans would probably rather see academy graduate Paul Dummett on this list, but he didn’t enter the first team picture until 2012.
Norwich – Alex Tettey
The tenacious midfielder joined from Rennes in 2012, and has been a first team regular ever since.
The Norweigan has experienced two relegations and two promotions with the Canaries in his seven seasons.
Sheffield United – Chris Basham
Billy Sharp is Sheffield United academy and captain, but is currently in his third spell at the club, having rejoined from Leeds in 2015.
Basham joined the Blades in 2014 from Blackpool, and is another who has played for their club in League 1 and journeyed back up the football pyramid.
Southampton – James Ward-Prowse
The versatile midfielder has been a first team player since the age of 16 at Southampton , having made his debut in October 2011 in the League Cup.
Now 24, Ward-Prowse is undoubtedly a talented Premier League player, but he has not progressed to the levels expected of him earlier in his career.
Spurs – Danny Rose
Rose joined Spurs from Leeds in 2007, and was an unused sub against Sunderland in 2008 before a knee injury halted his progression.
Rose has firmly established himself as a Spurs and England regular in the last six years, but is perhaps most remembered for his piledriving volley he scored on debut against Arsenal in 2010.
Watford – Troy Deeney
Watford signed the powerful striker from Walsall in 2010, and he has gone on to become club captain.
The Birmingham-born player is Watford’s all-time third top scorer in the Premier League, and has reportedly turned join the chance to represent Jamaica amid hopes of playing for England.
West Ham – Mark Noble
Noble bleeds claret and blue has been synonymous with West Ham in the last decade and some, with the club captain having made his debut in 2004.
Criticised throughout his career, Noble has always found a way to win round fans and retain his place with the Hammers, with some even claiming an injustice in his lack of an international call up.
Wolves – Matt Doherty
Doherty and Wolves took the Premier League by storm last season, with the Irishman establishing himself as dangerous attacking wingback.
He was signed after Wolves played against his then-club Bohemians on pre-season in Ireland in 2010, despite never having made a first-team appearance for them.
