List Of EPL Stars Who Could Make Surprise Transfer To Other Clubs This January

The English Premier League is one of the most watched leagues in the world which boasts of great talents. Here are some of its stars that could make surprise moves come January.

As January approaches, some English Premier League Clubs would love to solidify their teams by buying and offloading some players.
Here is the compiled list of stars that could make shock exit to other clubs. A host of household names find their Premier League futures on the line when their contracts run out in June. Inevitably, clubs will try to offload many of them in January in the hope of picking up even a small fee as opposed to waving them goodbye for nothing in the summer.
In this holiday special, here’s a pick of ‘Up For Transfer XI’ featuring the best of a long list of Premier League players whose futures are far from certain.
Victor Valdes (GK)
Club: Man Utd
Age: 33. Market value: £2m
Spain international not featured this season after falling out with Louis Van Gaal over his alleged refusal to play in Under-21 matches last season.
Linked with Newcastle, Chelsea and Turkish side Antalyaspor.
Branislav Ivanovic (RB)
Club: Chelsea
Age 31: MV: £6m
Serbian star has shown severe signs on burn out with series of catastrophic early season blunders costing Chelsea dear and contributing big time to the champions’ poor run. Could be binned.
Martin Demichelis (CD)
Club: Man City
Age: 34 MV: £2.5m
Continues to hold down first team slot, like everyone else at City, looks better alongside Vincent Kompany.
Should Manuel Pellegrini stay might just be worth another year.
John Terry (CD)
Club: Chelsea
Age: 35 MV: Free
Blues unlikely to ditch skipper and talisman just yet – and would he want to play for another Prem club anyway.
More likely to hit the trail to America or take lucrative deal in Middle East.
Bryan Oviedo (LB)
Club: Everton
Age: 25 MV: £2m
Injury – and the rise of starlet Brendan Gallagher – has cost the Costa Rican dear.
He’s only made 25 starts since leaving FC Copenhagen in 2012, anyway.
Looks certain to be shown the door.
Adam Johnson (RW) Club: Sunderland
Age: 28 MV: £6.5m
Still facing trial on suspicion of having sexual activity with an underage girl so future uncertain.
Exciting winger who will certainly might find favour elsewhere if he’s available to play.
Stephane Sessegnon (AMF)
Club: WBA
Age: 31 MV: £2.5m
Only eight starts for the Benin international this term, but his attacking intent and effectiveness off the bench means he will be in demand if WBA turf him out.
Michael Carrick (MF)
Club: Man Utd
Age: 34 MV: Free
Might be the end of the road for the stylish midfielder if Louis Van Gaal wields the axe on the Old Trafford old timers. But could still do a great job elsewhere at Prem level.
Mikel Arteta (DMF)
Club: Arsenal
Age 33 MV: £1.5m
Failed to impress Arsenal fans when asked to fulfil holding midfield role.
A little slow and unlikely to be retained as Arsene Wenger seeks to unload a surfeit of midfield talent.
Steven Pienaar (LW)
Age: 33 MV: £1.5
Great club servant but writing on the wall.
Only 11 games last season, a serious hamstring injury and no appearances this time around. Taxi for Pienaar
Steven Fletcher (S)
Club: Sunderland
Age: 28. MV: £5m
Eight goals this season – but three of them for Scotland v Gibraltar.
Operating first at Wolves, and now Sunderland, in struggling teams means he’s never been the prolific force he should be. Will get a decent club, though.
