The teams who were in the Premier League last season have announced their list of retained players - and there are some star names available.
Several big names will be seeking new clubs but, although defender Ledley King is not on Tottenham's retained list following the expiration of his contract, he says he will be back at White Hart Lane next season in either a playing or coaching capacity.
Danny Murphy and Pavel Pogrebnyak have not made Fulham's list but the club are believed to be in discussions with the duo about extending their stays.
However, Andrew Johnson is set to leave Craven Cottage this summer and other notable players who will be on the move are Arsenal goalkeeper Manuel Almunia, Manchester City's Owen Hargreaves and Michael Owen of Manchester United.
Selected players who have been given free transfers:
Arsenal: Manuel Almunia
Aston Villa: Carlos Cuellar, Emile Heskey
Blackburn: Miguel Salgado
Bolton: Juusi Jaaskelainen, Zat Knight, Paul Robinson, Gretar Steinsson
Chelsea: Jose Bosingwa, Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou
Everton: James McFadden
Fulham: Danny Murphy, Andrew Johnson, Pavel Pogrebnyak
Liverpool: Fabio Aurelio
Manchester City: Owen Hargeaves
Manchester United: Tomasz Kuszczak, Michael Owen
Newcastle: Danny Guthrie, Peter Lovenkrands, Alan Smith
Norwich: Zak Whitbread, Aaron Wilbrahim
QPR: Danny Gabbidon, Fitz Hall
Stoke: Salif Diao, Ricardo Fuller
Sunderland: Craig Gordon
Swansea: Ferrie Bodde
Tottenham: Ledley King, Ryan Nelsen, Louis Saha
WBA: Keith Andrews, Paul Scharner, Somen Tchoyi
Wigan: Mohamed Diame, Chris Kirkland, Hugo Rodallega
Wolves: Jody Craddock
what do you think?
I think there will be some interest in the Bolton players but other than that I don't see anyone being snapped up to take them away from potential rival clubs. I admire Danny Murphy for taking a strong line Club before potential ernings.
we need back up goalie would take jussi from bolton
