Top 10 Summer Bosmans

No10: Lucas Neill

The Australian defender is destined to leave as West Ham attempt to slash their wage bill. Despite being criticised for his £70,000-a-week salary, Neill, who turns 31 in March, helped the Hammers avoid relegation two years ago before going on to become an influential skipper at Upton Park.

No9: Steve Harper

The Newcastle keeper has yet to sign a new deal and with Shay Given also considering his future, the alarm bells are ringing at St James’ Park. Understandably, Harper is likely to wait until Given’s future is resolved before committing. Either way, he should be a Premier League No1 next season.

No8: Sean Davis

Former Fulham and Tottenham midfielder Davis has lost the impetus of his early days in the Premier League but at 29, he may fancy one more big move. His future – along with a number of other stars – remains uncertain at Portsmouth. There would be no shortage of takers for this work horse.

No7: Ryan Giggs

In keeping with Manchester United's policy with their veterans, Giggs, 35, will only land a one-year contract if he is still wanted at Old Trafford. The days of regular starts are long gone and the arrival of Zoran Tosic will further limit his chances. A two-year offer elsewhere could finally tempt him away.

No6: Carlos Kameni

African keepers are often portrayed as gaffe-prone clowns. But Cameroon ace Kameni has bucked the trend thanks to his impressive form since joining Spanish club Espanyol in 2004. He turns 25 next month, making him a young star in the world of No1s.

No5: Gary Neville

The emergence of Rafael da Silva has seriously threatened Neville’s future at Manchester United. The England defender, 34 next month, is expected to be offered a new deal but with Wes Brown also in contention, a regular spot is unlikely. Will he decide to follow the path of brother Phil out of Old Trafford?

No4: Emile Heskey

Who would have guessed that when Heskey left Liverpool in 2004, the same club would want to sign him five years later. The striker has enjoyed resurgence at Wigan, culminating in a surprise England recall. Heskey turns 31 next week but that won’t stop a number of big sides fighting for him.

No3: Mark van Bommel

The Dutch midfielder is upset with his contract offer at Bayern Munich and is set for the exit door. Tottenham came close to signing him three years ago before he eventually joined Barcelona but the chance of Premier League may resurface. Van Bommel is only 32 in April, so still has plenty to offer.

No2: Daniel Sturridge

How did Manchester City let their young hotshot’s contract run down? Sturridge will be offered a big new deal but with competition already tough and new faces set to arrive, he may fancy his chances elsewhere. City face a nervy few weeks as the striker makes up his mind.

No1: Michael Owen

Injuries have hampered Owen’s recent years but at 29, it is wrong to dismiss him. Newcastle’s woes have also played a part in his decline and a big move would surely reinvigorate the striker if he can stay fit. Who wouldn’t want a player who has averaged a goal every other game in their career?


couple of interestng players in there :huh:

True, were the tims no linked with that van bommel before :rolleyes:

sturridge is pretty good aswell but he will end up at the likes a hull or everton or summin

Nah Sturridge will stay with City or end up at Chelsea or Arsenal. Didn't think he was on a bosnam though, thought city had tied him up on a 5 year deal.
