Joan Verdú (Real Betis)
When Joan Verdú joined Betis from Espanyol on a free last summer, it looked like a real coup for the Andalusians. Unfortunately it hasn't worked out, and the former Barcelona B player is now free to move clubs, following the activation of a relegation release-clause.
The 31-year-old could now be set for a lucrative move abroad, to America or Saudi Arabia, or potentially to Greece to join Olympiacos, who he turned down in favour of Betis last summer. A talented playmaker, Verdú would thrive in the MLS or the Saudi Pro League, but a move to Olympiacos would allow him to continue playing at a competitive level, and the lure of the Champions League might be enough to entice him.
