Florent Malouda: Frozen out at Chelsea last season

Florent Malouda: Frozen out at Chelsea last season

France international Malouda, 32, last played for Chelsea in their 2012 Champions League final win over Bayern Munich but was frozen out last season and ended his reported £80,000 a week contract training with the U21s.

Bentley was a £15m signing for Tottenham from Blackburn in 2008, but he was an expensive flop in north London and has spent most of the last two seasons on loan at Russian side FK Rostov and Rovers.

He leaves White Hart Lane along with William Gallas, who spent three seasons at Spurs after joining on a free transfer from rivals Arsenal, who have released Arshavin after four years at the club.

Sebastien Squillaci is another to leave Arsenal, while Ivory Coast defender Kolo Toure will not feature in Manchester City's future plans and his move to Liverpool at the end of his contract was confirmed last month.

Chelsea have also released Israel midfielder Yossi Benayoun and Portugal defender Paulo Ferreira, while long-throw specialist Rory Delap departs Stoke along with retiring ex-England striker Michael Owen, Jermaine Pennant, Matthew Upson and Dean Whitehead.

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
