Matt Grimes — who was transferred from a small soccer club, Exeter City, to Premier League club Swansea for £1.75 million ($2.66 million) — is a former star player on the England juniors ultimate team, the Airbadgers. He was voted MVP of the team in their National Championship run in 2011.
The 19 year old Grimes is now a budding star in the midfield. He will watch his weekly pay rise from £500 ($758) to £10,000 ($15,176). Swansea hopes to get him involved in the team right away. He was on the bench for the first time this past weekend vs. Southampton, though he did not play.
