With the Absa Premiership having since ended, Soccer Laduma takes a look at the 11 players who have made the league’s most expensive starting XI according to their market values.
Player’s market values are constantly dropping and increasing based on their form in the PSL, their national team appearances and where they have previously plied their trade.
Khama Billiat is currently the most expensive player in South Africa’s top flight, based on his market value, although as years pass by, the player could see a decrease in his value.
Andile Jali is another player who has a very high market value in the league, due to the player recently returning from Europe, with KV Oostende in Belgium.
