CM: Abou Diaby – Arsenal
It finally happened. After years of trying, Arsenal just couldn’t get him fit again and have sought fit to release the France international. He will have some big decisions to make, but if a club can pick him up on a play-as-you-pay deal he could still have some life left in him yet.
LM: Jonas Gutierrez – Newcastle United
This season the Argentine battled back from cancer, scored the goal that sealed Newcastle’s top flight status, only to be released at the end of it. He’s 31 now, but will still have one or two good years left in him and on a free would most certainly be worth the gamble.
RM: Ross Wallace
The Scotsman didn’t have enough about him to save the Clarets from the drop, but managed to prove that he can still turn a trick to scare the life out of Premier League left-backs.
