Tottenham transfer target Ryan Fraser reportedly has no plans to sign a short-term extension at Bournemouth as he plans to leave on a free this summer. The Premier League returns next week with teams up and down the table having plenty to fight for.
Several teams though also have situations regarding some of their players who are out of contract in the summer.
There are just under 60 players around the league set to become free agents with their contracts expiring on June 30.
Some have already signed short-term extensions to ensure they help finish their season at their current club, given the season will run over that free agency date.
But there are still many players yet to commit their short-term futures.

Spurs owner Daniel Levy took out an £175million loan last week to combat costs incurred by the pandemic.
But they have received a boost in their pursuit of one transfer target with Fraser said to be unwilling to sign an extension at Bournemouth.

Bournemouth have also been boosted by the fact Harry Wilson has agreed to extend his loan from Liverpool.
The Cherries currently sit 18th in the table, but are level on points with Watford and West Ham while they’re just two points adrift of Brighton in 15th.
