Five Premier League players who could still leave before the end of this month

The Russian and Ukrainian Transfer Window's are still open - so which Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and Manchester United players could make the move.

The Transfer Window slammed shut a week ago today - and that is it … no other player will be on their way before the summer.

Although, that is not entirely true.

Because while our Transfer Window may have slammed shut - across the continent a couple of countries where big spending is now the norm have not quite called time on the spending.

The Russian Premier League’s window doesn’t shut for another 20 days and the Ukrainian window still has 22 days remaining.

So, with that in mind, could there be any players in the Premier League who might just be ready to give Russia and Ukraine a go as their time in England turns slightly sour.

We look at five potential players who might make the exit…

Andre Schurrle

The German international has been shunned from the starting XI - and now the squad.

The arrival of Mohamed Salah in the winter doesn’t help - while he is now seemingly behind the new arrival, Willian, Eden Hazard and Oscar in the pecking order for Jose Mourinho.

With his place in the German national team - could he consider a loan deal East before the end of February.

Etienne Capoue

The Frenchman got unlucky in that he got injured early in the season - and is now struggling to get back into the team.

A French international, his current hopes of making the Les Bleus side for the World Cup look slim - but regular football elsewhere might do the trick.

Erik Lamela

The Argentine is the clubs record signing - but he has been an absolute disappointment since his arrival from AS Roma.

He is now looking dangerously close to missing out on the Argentina side for the World Cup.

South American talents are all the rage in Eastern Europe - so he could make the move until the end of the season.

Papiss Cisse

The Senegalese striker has been cast out by Newcastle United - with Luuk De Jong arriving from Borussia Monchengladbach on loan.

Cisse seemingly tried to make a move happen in January but to no avail, and he has been linked with a move to Russia before.

Shinji Kagawa

The Japanese international’s chances of first-team football have plummeted in the wake of Juan Mata’s arrival - in fact they weren’t great anyway.

With the World Cup looming he might want first-team football to be in top condition for the Samurai Blues.
