Robber Rodwell

GK: Pickford, Robles, Stekelenburg
Not a fan of Stekelenburg but considering Robles' contract is up in the summer then he has to go in January if we're to get any money for him.

Full Back: Baines, Martina, Kenny, Coleman
Can't see any of them going, especially with the fitness of Baines and Coleman in doubt.

CB: Jagielka, Williams, Keane, Holgate, Funes Mori
Jagielka and Williams are probably the only two possibilities to leave in January. If we get an offer for one of them then it'd probably be wise to accept.

CM: Schneiderlin, Gana, Davies, Besic, McCarthy, Beningime, Klaassen
Besic's time is up, I don't think anyone can contest that.
McCarthy has probably changed opinions with a few slide tackles today but he's fucked us about and is constantly injured. If we get a decent offer then sell him.
Schneiderlin can go if we identify a replacement.
I know Klaassen is nowhere near the team but don't think it's wise to sell him for a big loss after six months. I believe there's a good player there.
Beningime possible loan.

Dreaded number 10s: Rooney, Sigurdsson, Barkley
Who knows what's happening with Barkley.

Wingers: Mirallas, Lookman, Bolasie, Lennon, Vlasic
Mirallas has to go.
Lookman has to go out on loan.

Strikers: Sandro, DCL, Niasse
Sandro just isn't going to work out. We'll still probably make a profit on him if we sell.
Niasse should be surplus to requirements if we get a striker (or two) in during January

So that's 30 players in total and in my opinion...

Definitely got to go: Robles, Mirallas, Besic, Sandro
If the right offer comes in: Jagielka/Williams, Schneiderlin, McCarthy, Barkley, Niasse
Out on loan: Baningime, Lookman

Great post.  Mirallas and Besic immediately come to mind.  Kev should have been moved on a couple of years ago.
