Shay Given, Michael Owen, Mark Viduka, Steven Taylor and Steve Harper are among some of the first-team squad members that have all been linked with shock exits from St. James'.

Kinnear himself admitted that exits were likely: “Providing we stay up things will have to be done. We’ll have to sit down and talk.”
