As the season draws to a close, most Premier League players will go on holiday for a few weeks and relax ahead of pre-season with their clubs.

But some will be frantically searching for another club to take them on, as their contracts draw to a close with their current clubs. 

Some of this summer's potential free agents are household names, proven winners and Premier League legends. 

At the top end of the table, and one who immediately catches the attention is Arsenal full-back, Bacary Sagna. The French right back has been with Arsenal seven years, but appears fed up at the Emirates and wanting a new challenge.

Another French defender, Patrice Evra, could well be departing Old Trafford this season. His teammate Nemanja Vidic has already signed terms with Inter Milan ahead of his contracts end.

Like the aforementioned duo, Joleon Lescott is another defender who is likely to leave his current club, with Manchester City highly unlikely to offer him an extension on his current deal.

Fellow England internationals Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and John Terry are all also out of contract after lengthy and successful spells at the Bridge. The three are believed to be in talks with the hierarchy, with it seeming very unlikely Terry will depart, especially after yet another impressive season as captain.

Newcastle stalwart Shola Ameobi may well move onto pastures new after over 15 years at Newcastle, whilst Everton hero Tony Hibbert looks set to sign a new one year contract, despite appearances being at a premium this season. 

At the bottom of the table, relegated Fulham could see their clear-out begin quickly. First team players including Steve Sidwell, Damien Duff and John Arne-Riise are just three who look likely to leave, whilst relegation threatened Norwich could lose Alex Tettey and Michael Turner. 

Sunderland also have a string of players whose future is on the line, including Seb Larsson and Phil Bardsley. 

Samuel Eto'o's one year stint in the league could also come to an end, whilst rumours suggest Craig Bellamy could call time on his career, regardless of whether Cardiff stay in the league or not. 

And in perhaps the saddest news of all, Arsenal could lose out on the services of long-term misfiring forward Nicklas Bendtner, although he may struggle to find a new club considering his remarkable £50,000 a week demands.
