I believe it was Paul Gascoigne, who went from Newcastle to Tottenham in 1988.
The first player sold for 2 million pounds, was the Dutch footballer Johan Cruiff from Ajax to Barcelona in Spain. Johan Cruyff was tranferred from Ajax to Barcelona in 1973 for six million dutch guilder which at the time worked out at approxmately US$2 million or £922,000. Mark Hughes was sold to Barcelona for £2 million in 1986.

Trevor Francis more information, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trevor_Francis I do not think Trevor Francis was involved in a single move for two million pounds. One million, yes and for more than two million throughout his career, yes, but not in one move. I think the answer is Mark Hughes (Manchester United to Barcelona) for any British player and then Andrew Cole (Newcastle United to Manchester United) for a move between two British clubs It was Paul Gascoigne Mark Hughes was sold for 2 million pounds in summer 1986, two years before Gascoigne was sold for 2.3 million, becoming the first British transfer for more than £2 million.
