31 Premier League free agents: Aaron Ramsey and others who could depart in 2019

A look at players who are free to negotiate with foreign clubs from January 1

A new year could signal new beginnings for several established Premier League stars with players entering the last few months of their contracts allowed to start negotiating with overseas clubs.

Chelsea's long-standing policy of only handing players over the age of 30 rolling one-year contracts means the likes of Gary Cahill, Cesc Fabregas, Olivier Giroud and David Luiz are free to speak with foreign clubs should they seek a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal's decision to withdraw their offer to keep Aaron Ramsey in North London has put a host of clubs on alert, with serial Serie A champions Juventus frequently reported with an interest in signing the Welsh midfielder.

Manchester City must weigh up whether to offer club stalwart Vincent Kompany fresh terms with the Belgian defender's current deal set to expire on June 30, while promising attacking midfielder Brahim Diaz is also free to negotiate with other clubs as of today.

Manchester United defenders Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian and playmaker Juan Mata are just some of the players at Old Trafford who must consider their futures too.
