Big names among list of Premier League free agents

Former England internationals Owen Hargreaves and Michael Owen are among the players who are available on free transfers this summer. Manchester City confirmed last month that they would not offering injury-hit midfielder Hargreaves a new deal, while striker Owen broke the news he was heading for the Old Trafford exits via Twitter. All clubs are required to submit their players released and players retained lists to the Premier League by the third Saturday in May, apart from Chelsea who had a deadline of four days following the UEFA Champions League final. Striker Didier Drogba revealed he would be leaving Stamford Bridge, while Salomon Kalou and Jose Bosingwa have been shown the door by the European champions. It is understood that Fulham are still in talks with Danny Murphy and Pavel Pogrebnyak about extended stays with talks on-going and offers made to the key duo. But the Cottagers are not in discussions with striker Andrew Johnson, midfielder Bjorn Helge Riise or defender Zdenek Grygera about new deals, and they are set to leave Craven Cottage. Although defender Ledley King was not on Tottenham's retained list following the expiration of his contract, he says he will be back at White Hart Lane next season in either a playing or coaching capacity. Paul Scholes was named on Manchester United's released players list, but has since signed a new deal with the Red Devils, while former Liverpool defender Fabio Aurelio has joined Gremio after seeing out his Anfield contract.
