Ten big names who don’t feature in their teams’ plans next season.
10) Ashley Cole
Allowed to leave on a free by Chelsea, Ashley Cole has surely been grossly undervalued by his club this summer, with the long-serving left-back now set to become a terrific signing on a free transfer for whomever snaps him up in this transfer window. The 33-year-old may be heading towards the end of his career, but has arguably shown no signs of losing his best form after some top performances for the Blues in some big games towards the end of the 2013/14 campaign. Overlooked by England manager Roy Hodgson as well, it has not been an easy few months for Cole, who deserves to be recognised as one of the best defenders of all time in the English game, and he will be hoping to take the opportunity to prove his doubters wrong when he makes his next move.
