The Labour Market in Association Football: Who Gets Transferred and For How Much?

Fiona Carmichael, David Forrest and Robert Simmons ()

Bulletin of Economic Research, 1999, vol. 51, issue 2, 125-50

Abstract: This paper employs data for the 1993-94 season to estimate a hedonic equation representing the determination of the price structure in the transfer market for professional players in the English football leagues. Player transfer proneness is modelled, and the Heckman two-step procedure is employed to take account of selection bias. The paper identifies those player attributes which affect either the probability of transfer or the transfer fee and evaluates the relative influence of such variables.
