Only a few short weeks into the summer transfer window, a whole host of new arrivals have put their name to deals with clubs to play in the 2014-15 Premier League season.
While fans will be familiar with many of the names changing clubs within the league itself—Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw and Mathieu Debuchy are three such players—some of the overseas imports might have escaped common attention.
Even if they haven't, with arrivals already from the Bundesliga, Eredivisie, La Liga and Ligue 1, it's intriguing to see how they stack up against each other and how they might fare in the coming campaign.
Here's our top 20 new faces for the new season, all players signed from clubs outside England.
Players are ranked according to their own ability, but also for how well they fill a particular need from the buying club, their relative cost or value and also how quickly they might have an impact during 14-15, rather than long-term success they might have.
Only signings from overseas clubs are counted and only if the transfer has been completely finalised, subject to work permits in certain cases, and are confirmed on the official Premier League website.
