Top 10: Premier League players out of contract in the summer (1)

Published Add your comment

The summer transfer window is just around the corner and many big money moves are in the pipeline according to reports.

However, many forget the host of talent across world football who could be released from their clubs and moving to others on free transfers in that time.

It is worth mentioning that these players are able to move freely from their clubs due to the Bosman ruling of 1995.

Bosman was a Liege player who in 1990 wanted to move to Dunkerque.

However, the French club refused to meet Liege's transfer fee demands and Bosman had to stay at Liege, who subsequently cut his wages as he was no longer in the first-team.

Bosman challenged FIFA's ruling on out of contract players, and it resulted in EU players being given the right to move from one EU club to another for free at the end of their contracts.

Here comes a list of ten players who are part of a group of roughly eighty Premier League players out of contract in the summer.
