8. Micah Richards – Manchester City

Micah Richards has made a total of nine Premier League appearances over the course of the last one-and-a-half seasons. It was abundantly clear that he needed to leave the Etihad Stadium this month.

Who knows, a decent run at another club could have led to him earning a place in the England squad for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.

But, after failing to leave City, Richards will continue to spend even more precious time sitting on a substitutes' bench.
