The fine folk at the CIES Football Observatory are always coming up with some nifty research regarding the beautiful game. They took a look at the clubs in the Premier League, and came up with a table for which clubs held on to their players for the longest time, and it might come as no surprise that the Toffees came in first.

20. Sunderland (2.24 seasons)

19. West Ham United (2.27 seasons)

18. Tottenham Hotspur (2.28 seasons)

17. Aston Villa (2.30 seasons)

16. Watford (2.31 seasons)

15. Crystal Palace (2.43 seasons)

14. Liverpool (2.54 seasons)

13. Southampton (2.56 seasons)

12. Bournemouth (2.59 seasons)

11. Leicester City (2.65 seasons)

10. Norwich City (2.81 seasons)

9. Stoke City (2.88 seasons)

8. Swansea City (2.92 seasons)

7. Manchester United (3.08 seasons)

6. West Bromwich Albion (3.09 seasons)

5. Manchester City (3.19 seasons)

4. Newcastle United (3.21 seasons)

3. Chelsea (3.33 seasons)

2. Arsenal (3.80 seasons)

1. Everton (4.14 seasons)

This should show you that players who come to play for Everton want to stay at Goodison the longest as well.
