Best Answer

Dennis Law (Scotland) was the first player to be transferred for 100,000 pounds in English Football, when he transferred from Manchester City to Torino in June 1961.

Previously Jimmy Greaves signed for 99,999 pounds from AC Milan to Tottenham Hotspur because he didn't want to be the first 100,000 pound player.
