thumbnail Hello,

All of the clubs in the German top flight will be releasing first-team footballers imminently. Goal.com takes a closer look at who is available at a bargain price

The summer sales are on. With the 2011-12 Bundesliga season concluded, it's now time to think about the coming campaign and possible reinforcements for the next edition of Germany's top flight. And that means transfers.

The DFL recently struck a deal that will see television proceeds increase by more than 50 per cent. However, that will not take effect until 2013-14, meaning that for now, many clubs will have to search for inexpensive options. To their fortune, many bargains with expiring contracts are available on the market.

Below, Goal.com takes a definitive look at the Bundesliga players available on Bosman transfers this summer.
