thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com guides you through the Bosman transfer market in the Premier League this summer...

As the end of another season draws near, so too does the expiration date of a number of Premier League players' contracts - and that means, potentially, a whole host of Bosman transfers this summer.

Now, we at Goal.com know that it can be a bit of a head-spin trying to keep up with exactly who will be a free agent and who will not, especially as the rumour mill kicks into high gear as June approaches.

Therefore, we have decided to compile a club-by-club list of all those players who, as things stand, will be free to leave their current Premier League outfits at season's end.

Loan expiries have been included and clearly marked. Only players who have at least one competitive first-team appearance under their belts have been taken into consideration.

Players whose names are struck through have already had their future decided one way or another.
