With the season slowly coming to a close, Transfermarkt.ru has updated the market values of the Belarusian Vysheyshaya Liga. The biggest winner is Gambian striker Dembo Darboe. The 22-year-old was signed by Shakhtjor Soligorsk for €700,000 from North Macedonian side Shkupi last winter. With 22 goal involvements in 18 games, Darboe has drawn interest from several clubs in the top 10 leagues, among the Krasnodar. His market value grows by €1 million to now €1.7 million.
Darobe is now ahead of teammate Nikola Antić, who previously owned the place at the very top of the market value ranking. The Serbian left-back has had a strong season and is now in the focus of several clubs from abroad. His market value went up by €200,000 to now €1.6 million. The same increase as Slovakian defensive midfielder Julius Szöke; his new market value is now €1.4 million.
Belarusian defensive talent Gleb Shevchenko can also look back to a strong season. Signed for €100,000 from league competitor Slavia Mozyr, he quickly established himself in the starting XI and has since made his debut for the Belarusian national team. As a result, he has doubled his market value to now €500,000.
Update Vysheyshaya Liga: Solovey impresses
Among the biggest winners is newly capped Andrey Solovey from promoted FK Gomel. Solovey ranks second in the scorer list behind Darboe. His nine goals and five assists in 13 games are a major reason that his club are currently ranked fourth—as a result, Solovey’s market value grew by 400% to now €600,000.
At Soligorsk’s closest title competitor BATE Borisov, Shakhboz Umarov and Danila Nechaev have been in focus. Uzbek striker Umarov has been involved in ten goals across all competitions. Nechaev, in the meantime, became an important part of BATE’s defence after he joined the club from Belshina last winter. Both saw their market value grow by €200,000 to now €500,000.
The Transfermarkt market values are calculated, taking into account various pricing models. A major factor is the Transfermarkt community, whose members discuss and evaluate player market values in detail. In general, the Transfermarkt market values are not to be equated with transfer fees. The goal is not to predict a price but an expected value of a player in a free market. Both individual transfer modalities and situational conditions are relevant in determining market values. Examples of this are listed below. Transfermarkt does not use an algorithm (you can find the detailed market value definition here).
