Premier League clubs have released their retained lists, naming the players who are staying and going this summer.

Here, Press Association Sport compiles a starting XI of the best free agents available for clubs ahead of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign.

WILLY CABALLERO: The Argentinian shot stopper will provide experience as a back-up option. The 35-year-old is best remembered for saving three spot-kicks in City's penalty shootout victory over Liverpool in the 2016 League Cup final.

JOHN TERRY: Although Terry's future is yet to be decided - he may quit all together - several clubs in Europe, China or across the pond would welcome the services of the former England captain.

GAEL CLICHY: The French full-back featured in two title successes and League Cup triumph during his time at City and could be a target for a number of clubs in the Premier League.

JOHN O'SHEA: The 36-year-old veteran defender will be tracked by a number of clubs and will provide valuable experience on and off the pitch.

BACARY SAGNA: The France international's crossing ability will be an adequate addition to many clubs in Europe.

MATHIEU FLAMINI: The former Marseille, Arsenal, AC Milan midfielder spent last season at Crystal Palace and will provide depth for most Premier League sides.

SHAUN MALONEY: A quiet but effective performer, the Scotland international could be snapped up after leaving Hull.

STEVEN PIENAAR: The former Everton and Tottenham midfielder may have seen his best days but can still produce at the top level when fully-fit.

JESUS NAVAS: The pacy World Cup-winning winger Navas has a wealth of Premier League experience under his belt and helped the club win that competition in 2014.

AROUNA KONE:The Ivorian striker made a marginal impact during his time at Everton, scoring 10 times in 62 appearances, including a hat-trick against Sunderland in 2015.

ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC: Having scored 28 goals and helping Manchester United win three trophies in his first season in England, the 35-year-old Swede will be one of football's most coveted free agents this summer once he recovers from a cruciate ligament injury.
