While it may feel like the often tiresome hustle and bustle of the always frenetic summer transfer period has only just died down, such welcome quiet is only likely to be temporary as the window re-opens for business once again in January.

Although January is still three months away, the rumour mill has already gone into overdrive with rumours and speculation regarding the future of a number of top-flight players already intensifying.
