I think instead of counting homegrown you're better off looking at how close we are to maximum foreign quota.

Are any of Pellistri and Amad homegrown? That will make a difference.


Our current senior non-homegrown players

De Gea

Dalot
Lindelof
Varane
Martinez
Malacia

Fred
Casemiro
Eriksen
Bruno
VDB

Martial
Antony


That's only 13 permanent non-homegrown players currently so we're not in too bad a shape, hopefully however not sure if Amad and Pellistri may add to that eventually. That leaves us a decent amount of space for foreign signings this summer you'd think - Martial, VDB, Fred could be on the chopping block but wouldn't surprise me if they're still here next season. Not sure if Dalot or AWB will be the one sold if we do want a new right back.
Currently (after Høj goes through):
  1. Bailly, Eric Bertrand
  2. Borges Fernandes, Bruno Miguel
  3. Casimiro, Carlos Henrique
  4. Dalot Teixeira, Jose Diogo
  5. Dos Santos, Antony Matheus
  6. Eriksen, Christian Dannemann
  7. Højlund, Rasmus Winther
  8. Lindelof, Victor Jorgen Nilsson
  9. Malacia, Tyrell Johannes Chicco
  10. Martial, Anthony Jordan
  11. Martinez, Lisandro
  12. Onana, André Onana
  13. Santos, Frederico Rodrigues De Paula
  14. Van De Beek, Donny
  15. Varane, Raphael Xavier
Amad doesn't need to be registered, Pellistri would but not sure if he counts as home grown, and he'll most likely be loaned out. Bailly, Fred and van de Beek will probably be gone if we find any takers so there is plenty of space for more non-homegrown players.

Spoiler below is with homegrown players included (*), including the Evans rumour:

  1. Bailly, Eric Bertrand
  2. Borges Fernandes, Bruno Miguel
  3. Casimiro, Carlos Henrique
  4. Dalot Teixeira, Jose Diogo
  5. Dos Santos, Antony Matheus
  6. Eriksen, Christian Dannemann
  7. Evans, Jonathan Grant*
  8. Heaton, Thomas David*
  9. Henderson, Dean Bradley*
  10. Højlund, Rasmus Winther
  11. Lindelof, Victor Jorgen Nilsson
  12. Maguire, Harry Jacob*
  13. Malacia, Tyrell Johannes Chicco
  14. Martial, Anthony Jordan
  15. Martinez, Lisandro
  16. McTominay, Scott*
  17. Mount, Mason Tony*
  18. Onana, André Onana
  19. Rashford, Marcus*
  20. Sancho, Jadon Malik*
  21. Santos, Frederico Rodrigues De Paula
  22. Shaw, Luke Paul Hoare*
  23. Van De Beek, Donny
  24. Varane, Raphael Xavier
  25. Wan-Bissaka, Aaron*
  26. Williams, Brandon Paul Brian*

A few of the homegrown lot will likely be gone - Henderson and Williams at least, possibly Heaton and if you know who is going to play here this season then he would have to be registered in the 25 man squad but that's another discussion.

If they spend 3 years at an English club anytime before their 21st birthday (including if they turn 21 during their 3rd season at the club) they count as homegrown
That's correct! The rule you mentioned is part of the criteria for a player to be considered "homegrown" in the context of English football. The idea is to encourage clubs to develop young talent through their youth academies.

If a player spends a minimum of three years at an English club before the age of 21 (even if they turn 21 during their third season), they qualify as "homegrown." This rule aims to promote the development of local talent and strengthen the connection between clubs and their youth systems.
