Premier League is back… and with it comes new wave of top-tier Wags

THE Premier League is back – and with it comes a new wave of Wags.

Already, almost HALF A BILLION POUNDS has gone on new players. And as there are still two weeks to go until the transfer window closes, that figure will continue to rise.

Man City’s signing of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa for £100million saw him become the most expensive Premier League player ever.

And behind many big signings there is a very glamorous woman with the latest Hermes handbag. Today, former Wag Suzi Walker, 50, the ex-wife of England and Tottenham goalkeeper Ian, runs the rule over ladies who are about to take the Premier League by storm.

She said: “Being a Wag is a big job. Not only are you supporting your player but your fortunes can be interlinked with their career. For example, if they are on the bench for a long stint or out of the team, you might get left out of lunches with other Wags or not invited to parties.

“When I was in that world, I knew Victoria Beckham, Cheryl, Coleen Rooney and Carly Cole. But there is extra pressure today with social media. There might be a lot of money in football but you are constantly keeping up with the other players and their partners.

“My advice would be to be yourself and be as nice as you can to others. I hope the new Wags are given help to adjust and get to know people. Having said that, I’m quite happy to be away from it now in all honesty.”

We introduce the new Wags whose other halves have arrived in the Premier League this season and those who are top targets by our big clubs. Suzi gives her opinion and marks them out of ten.
