The transfer window might be closed, but there are still deals to be done in the loan market. On Wednesday, September 9 the emergency loan window opens, allowing clubs in the Football League to sign players on a temporary basis until it closes again on November 25. We look at the men who might be on the move from the top flight...

1. Jerome Sinclair (Liverpool)

One of the numerous players signed in his mid-teens who Liverpool expected to progress to their first team. Sinclair looked to have made a breakthrough at the end of last season after a loan spell at Wigan, but after failing to agree a new contract the striker has been frozen out by Brendan Rodgers.


2. Joao Carlos Teixeira (Liverpool)

Enjoyed himself at Brighton last season and returned to Anfield with hopes of breaking into the first team. Liverpool’s European commitments will give midfielder Teixeira an opportunity to impress Brendan Rodgers, which explains why he did not go on loan before the transfer deadline.


3. Ryan Ledson (Everton)

Ledson has already made his senior debut and further opportunities will come the midfielder’s way. The dilemma for Roberto Martinez is whether the teenager will currently learn more as an emerging squad players around Goodison or take the next step playing every week on loan at championship level


4. Philippe Senderos (Aston Villa)

The Switzerland international was not named in Villa's 25-man squad and will be allowed out.

5. Victor Anichebe (West Brom)

After West Brom struggled to offload him this summer he is facing an uncertain future.


6. Phil Bardsley (Stoke)

Has fallen out of favour during Mark Hughes' rebuild and will welcome a chance to revive his career.


7. Joe Cole (Aston Villa)

Cole is proving a good mentor to Villa's youngsters but surely it's about playing on a Saturday?

8. Gael Bigrimana (Newcastle)

Signed from Coventry City as one for the future but has gone backwards in recent years.


9. Rob Elliot (Newcastle)

Can't even make the bench at Newcastle this season, the Republic of Ireland international wants to play.

10. Yoan Gouffran (Newcastle)

Integral part of a poor team for the last couple of years, he does not appear to be part of Steve McClaren's plans.


11. Liam Bridcutt (Sunderland)

Followed Gus Poyet from Brighton to Sunderland but has not looked good enough for the Premier League.


12. Will Buckley (Sunderland)

Another player signed on Poyet's recommendation who cannot get near the first team under Dick Advocaat.

13. Wayne Hennessey (Crystal Palace)

A star of Wales' Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, the Palace goalkeeper has never established himself as a first-teamer in the Premier League. His sporadic appearances in the Capital One Cup are unlikely to satisfy him and he could demand regular football elsewhere.


14. Joel Campbell (Arsenal)

The Costa Rica international has failed to establish himself at the Emirates and was widely linked with a move away from the club in the summer window.

15. Sam Johnstone (Manchester United)

With David de Gea now staying at Manchester United, Johnstone is likely to be given the chance to build on the experience gained at Doncaster and Preston last season. A move to the Championship is most likely.


16. Andreas Pereira (Manchester United)

The Brazilian midfielder impressed on Manchester United's summer tour of the USA, but with opportunities set to be limited for the 19-year-old, a loan move could be in the cards.


17. Paddy McNair (Manchester United)

The Northern Irish defender made 18 senior appearances for United last season, but has been unused so far this term and, at 20, may be given the chance boost his experience away from Old Trafford in the first half of the season.

18. Kelechi Iheanacho (Manchester City)

The 18-year-old forward made the breakthrough on Manchester City's pre-season tour of Australia, but has been left out of Manuel Pellegrini's Champions League squad. Valuable cover up-front, but a loan move may yet materialise.


19. Milos Veljkovic (Tottenham)

Had been linked with a move to Leeds during the summer window, the Serbian impressed in his country's successful Under-20 World Cup campaign in June.


20. Elliot Lee (West Ham)

The striker featured regularly for West Ham during their ill-fated Europa League campaign, but seems unlikely to play in the Premier League. His contract expires next summer so playing in the lower leagues could put him in the shop window.
