Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been issued to or worn by Babayaro during the 1999-01 seasons. The left-back had joined the Blues from Anderlecht as a teenager back in 97' from Anderlecht for a reported £2.25 million and continued to be a key player during this time. He made 41 appearances in 1999-00 as the side reached the Champions League Quarter-Finals before losing out to Barcelona but claimed the FA Cup as consolation in the last ever Old Wembley Final. The following year he was restricted to 23 appearances in all competitions as the Blues struggled for form and slipped to 6th in the Premier League. He stayed on at the Bridge until January 2005 when he joined Newcastle. He continued to be a key player for Nigeria at this time and made 27 appearances in total for the Super Eagles featuring at World Cups in 98' and 02'.
