The list of players scheduled to be released this summer by all 20 Premier League clubs has been revealed, with Manchester City captain Fernandinho a surprise inclusion.

The 36-year-old lifted the Premier League title with the Cityzens in May, as Pep Guardiola's side reclaimed the crown they lost to a dominant Liverpool side during 2019/20.

The Brazilian wasn't so lucky in the Champions League final, though, instead watching on as Premier League rivals Chelsea triumphed in Porto with a 1-0 win over City, courtesy of Kai Havertz's goal late in the first half.

There is still time for him to pen a new contract at the Etihad Stadium as it's not uncommon for players to agree new terms before their deals actually expire - usually on 30 June.

There are, however, a number of other high profile departures that have already been confirmed. Fernandinho's City teammate Sergio Aguero is among those heading for pastures new - he's already joined Barcelona on a two-year deal - while international colleague David Luiz is also on the hunt for a new club after Arsenal announced he would leave north London.

Veteran goalkeeper Willy Caballero is another international star leaving the capital, as he heads for the exit door at Chelsea, and he's joined by Manchester United shot-stopper Sergio Romero, who had been frozen out at Old Trafford over the past 12 months.

There's also a fresh start for Danny Rose, who is leaving Tottenham, and Ryan Bertrand, formerly of Southampton.

Below is the name of every player set for release.
