moisander sjbf1. Niklas Moisander (Ajax)

The Ajax captain has confirmed his intention to leave the Amsterdam club in January with his contract running out in the summer. The Finnish international has spent the last eleven years plying his trade in the Eredivisie, but now fancies a move abroad. At 29-years-old Moisander is an experienced and reliable defender, who will be a great addition to whichever club picks him up in January.

Possible destination: Has been linked with clubs from Germany and England. Everton said to be one of the clubs interested

necid pec s2. Tomas Necid (PEC Zwolle)

During the summer PEC Zwolle surprised many people when they announced the signing of Necid on loan until the end of the season, but in his contract was a clause which allowed CSKA Moscow to recall the player in January. The striker has scored 10 goals in 19 appearances so far this season, and the interest in the Czech international is growing, which may see CSKA recall him just to sell him to another club, with his contract in Russia up next July.  PEC coach Ron Jans has stated they will do whatever it takes to keep Necid, but he may be left disappointed.

Possible destination: Derby County coach Steve McClaren reportedly scouted the striker recently

bakkali b3. Zakaria Bakkali (PSV)

The Mercurial talent who broke onto the scene at the start of last season refused to sign a new deal after falling out of Phillip Cocu’s first team, and the Eindhoven club banished the 18-year-old to the reserves. Atletico Madrid’s attempt to sign the Belgian in the summer failed, but the midfielder is set to leave this January with PSV looking to receive some payment for the wonderkid, who’s contract runs out in the summer.

Possible destination: A number of clubs ranging from Chelsea to Stoke City have been linked. The battle seems on for January.

sinkgr aja4. Daley Sinkgraven (Heerenveen)

The 19-year-old has been one of the breakout stars of the season so far, impressing with his commanding displays in Heerenveen’s midfield. Manchester United and Liverpool have both been credited with interest, but Sinkgraven is set to move to Ajax in January, with Frank de Boer already confirming his intention to capture the Netherlands U21 international. If Ajax do capture Sinkgraven, he may be loaned back to the Frisian club for the remainder of the season.

Possible destination: Ajax

castaignosgvvh5. Luc Castaignos (Twente)

The striker came close to leaving Enschede in the summer with Swansea City having a fee agreed with Twente, before opting to sign Bafatemi Gomis instead. Castaignos has gone on to score twelve goals in eighteen games, and Twente may be unable to stop the 22-year-old from departing the club. A move to Inter Milan earlier in his career slowed Castaignos’s progression, but the striker looks a lot more mature, and ready to star abroad.

Possible destination: Newcastle United have been strongly linked in the past, while Steve McClaren has also been spotted at his former club and may look to tempt the forward to Derby County.
