With the money and fame circulating football nowadays (Gareth Bale earns £600,000-per-week, are you kidding me!?), loyalty appears a tough trait to come by in the sport's current state. Long gone are the days of rising through a club's youth system, earning your place in the first-team, and serving your childhood club until the day you hang up the boots and try your hand at management or punditry.

Instead, the modern roster of stars search for fresh challenges, new experiences and sometimes for the closest clubs to the best yachts, villas and high-paying owners. We won't name anyone, but the list of highest-earners in the Chinese Super League makes for interesting reading - although for the dollar the likes of Hulk have made in the CSL, I'd be on a plane to Beijing quicker than you could say 'money-chaser'...

Trying to keep track of the big-money moves and controversial transfers in modern windows can be difficult, so it's always good to reminisce of the loyal stars of the past who maintain the one-club ideals of some of our footballing ideals. With that being said, in this list, WhatCulture looks at the best one-club men in football history!
