10 Best Players To Play For Both Leeds United And Chelsea

4. Tore Andre Flo

Chelsea – 1997-2000
Leeds United- 2007-08

One of Chelsea’s best pieces of business of the Premier League era, the west London side signed Tore Andre Flo as a relative unknown from Norwegian side Brann in 1997, with the forward shining upon his move to English football. Flo scored 50 goals for Chelsea before a £12m move to Rangers in 2000.

The Norweigan moved to Leeds on a free transfer in the latter stages of his career, scoring four goals in 24 appearances as the Whites dropped into the third tier of English football.

3. Vinnie Jones

Leeds United – 1989-90
Chelsea – 1991-92

Throughout his career, Jones had a reputation for a highly aggressive and physically uncompromising style of play, earning him a “hard man” image on and off the field. Jones joined Leeds in a £650,000 deal in 1989. He became a fans’ favourite as the club secured promotion to the First Division during the 1989/90 campaign.

He moved on to Sheffield United before joining Chelsea the following season, making 52 appearances in all competitions during a single season with the Blues.

2. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

Leeds United – 1997-99
Chelsea – 2000-04

One of just three players in Premier League history to have won the Golden Boot with two different clubs, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink won the accolade with both Leeds and Chelsea. Hasselbaink signed for Leeds in 1997 and finished his debut season with 22 goals in all competitions. The following campaign saw him share the Golden Boot alongside Dwight Yorke and Michael Owen in 1998/99. He left for Atletico Madrid in 1999.

He returned to the Premier League with Chelsea in 2000. The forward hit 87 goals in 177 appearances in all competitions before signing for Middlesborough.

1. Tony Dorigo

Chelsea – 1987-91
Leeds United- 1991-97

Tony Dorigo enjoyed memorable stints at both clubs, initially signing for Chelsea in a £450,000 deal from Aston Villa in the late eighties. He made 180 appearances in all competitions during his time at Stamford Bridge before becoming Leeds‘ club-record signing.

During his first season with the Lilywhites, the club were crowned champions of England in 1991/92. He won the Fans’ Player of the Year award for the same year. Injuries began to hinder his impact in his later career at Elland Road before departing for Torino.
