Scott Parker - West Ham
Nani, Anderson, Hargreaves - Man Utd
Sidwell, Pizzaro - Chelsea
Muntari - Portsmouth
That's all I can remember, except Leeds have released Sullivan and Crainey. Apparently Villa have bid £7m for Reo-Coker, although why anyone would want him in their team, i'll never know why.

Evra was a revelation last season, there's no chance he'll be playing second fiddle to Heinze in the new campaign.
I think it'd be a good move, I don't see why he wouldn't want to come to us. Just down the road, wouldn't have to uproot his life. Fellow Argentine presence in the dressing room (Mascherano, Paletta, Padelli), and following two years of injury and bench-warming, he might see it as the ideal way to kickstart his career again.
Pennant came good around two months before the end of the season, which isn't too bad given that that was his first real run in the side (following Garcia's injury).
I think our problem last year was too many new faces at once, and as a result the team struggled to gel. Kuyt, Bellamy, Gonzalez, Pennant, Mascherano, Aurelio, Paletta and Arbeloa were all brought in, it was a bit hectic.
The problem isn't to do with the players. We have the strongest central midfield in the division and the second best defence. With just Torres and Babel in this year, and possibly another left-back, I think we're set to do a lot better.

Hey! Take Crouch out of that equation. The biggest problem Liverpool has with scorers of any kind is making them actually score while wearing a Liverpool shirt. They buy 'goal scorers' who forget how to score until we sell them and then they do wonders for their new teams :(
West Ham are now the most hatted Premiership club overtaking Chelsea and Man U.
Anyone seen the Arsenal away kit, its white but looks great. Walcott to replace Henry with Da Silva a 20 goal a season player.
Now we want Heinze apparently. Would be a damn good signing if under £10M, we don't really have an adequate left-back.
