Same agent changed what player's called (5,4)


I believe the answer is:

stage name

'what player's called' is the definition.
(an actor might use a stage name)

'same agent changed' is the wordplay.
'changed' indicates anagramming the letters.
'sameagent' anagrammed gives 'STAGE-NAME'.

(Other definitions for stage name that I've seen before include "Player could go by this" , "Actor's pseudonym" , "Lady Gaga, say" , "fresh identity" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
