thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com takes a look at the players from the top flight who could leave their clubs at the season's end, with two Schalke stars topping the list

The advent of the new year brings with it a fresh wave of insecurity for clubs, who know that they will be prone to losing some of their best players for the rest of the season.

In Germany, none will be more worried than Schalke, who stand to lose two of their stars, Lewis Holtby and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar for free come the season's end, though the Konigsblauen will not be so worried about the likely departure of Ciprian Marico, who has been largely disappointing.

Elsewhere, Borussia Dortmund captain Sebastian Kehl's current deal expires in June, though the veteran midfielder has the option of extending his long stay at Signal Iduna Park for another year.

Bayern Munich, meanwhile, need not worry so much - Claudio Pizarro is the most high-profile player poised to depart the Allianz Arena, with Daniel Van Buyten and Anatoliy Tymoshchuk struggling to make any impact on the Bayern frist team.

As well as being threatened with relegation, Greuther Furth and Augsburg stand to lose a number of high-profile players come June.

Hamburg, meanwhile, have the fewest senior players poised to leave the club, with back-up goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny the only one to have featured in the first-team of late who is coming to the end of his contract.

Below, Goal.com gives you a club-by-club guide on all of the Bundesliga players who could become free agents come June 30.
