Aston Villa

There aren’t many players still playing who can boast in excess of 400 Premier League appearances, but Carrick certainly can.

The 36-year-old has played 460 games for United in the last 11 years and has over 650 first team appearances to his name throughout his senior career, having played over 100 times for West Ham and 72 times for Tottenham.

And with 34 England caps to his name as well, a number many feel should be significantly higher, the midfielder boasts a vast amount of experience which is surely going to benefit Villa, even though none of it has come in the Championship.
