That’s a lot of negotiations to have to deal with and it is understood that the club haven’t exactly been quick to get talks moving over the futures of the players who would be set to leave in the summer.
All in all, eight players will see their current contracts run out in June, while four others currently on loan at Sheffield United will also be set to depart.
It’s potentially going to cause a huge turnaround in the squad and those in charge of bringing players to the club are going to have their hands full over the next eight months.
With so many contracts running down, there is the possibility that some players will leave when the January transfer window opens, with Slavisa Jokanovic open to trading so that he can bring in the tragets he wants.
The Serb wants to make three new signings when the transfer market reopens, with two wingers and a holding midfielder his top priorities.
And he’s made it clear that he would prefer for those being brought in to do so permanently, rather than on loan.
Although he accepts that at least one of the three players he wants are likely to arrive on a temporary deal - with Barcelona’s Alex Collado still thought to be of interest - Jokanovic does not want to be placed in a situation whereby FA and EFL legislation influences his team selections.
The governing bodies only permit clubs to name five ‘borrowed’ players in their matchday squads, with four already at the Serb’s disposal.
