hatem ben arfa

10. Hatem Ben Arfa – Nice

He may have been too inconsistent at Newcastle and Hull, but he’s rediscovered his form on the French Riviera this season and could prove to be a worthy gamble for a club in need of a bit of magic.

Michael Carrick

9. Michael Carrick – Manchester United

He’s no spring chicken anymore, and his season has been blighted by injury, but he is still more than capable of doing a job for someone at the top level.

Tomas Rosicky

8. Tomas Rosicky – Arsenal

Rosicky is in a similar position to Carrick, but there will surely be a club somewhere that will give him one final hurrah.


7. Samir Handanovic – Inter Milan

The Slovenian international has been a tremendous servant for Inter, and many have wondered why they have allowed him to run his deal this far down. Bags of Champions League and international experience, he would be a steal for any club.

John Terry

6. John Terry – Chelsea

He may not have enjoyed his best season in a blue shirt, but he comes with a pedigree that doesn’t come along all too often. However, would he play for another English side, or will he head Stateside?
