The domestic transfer deadline slams shut on Friday, with clubs in the Football League trying to wrap up some last-minute deals.
Although the international deadline closed on October 5, the domestic agreement between Premier League and EFL teams means players can still be transferred in England.
Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea are all expected to be among the Premier League clubs doing business; but it will be outgoings – not incomings – on the horizon.
Clubs have until 5pm to finalise their deals, with several out-of-favour players in the English top-flight set to leave either on loan or permanently.
Here, Mirror Sport takes a look at 10 players who could leave…
1. Harry Wilson (Liverpool)
Having failed to seal a move to a Premier League rival before last week's deadline, Wilson remains on the shopping list of a number of Championship clubs.
Swansea City were believed to be leading the race, having successfully brought Rhian Brewster to the Liberty Stadium from Anfield for the second half of last season.
However it is understood the Swans have lost ground in their pursuit of the Liverpool winger.
Now Derby County have emerged as favourites for the Welsh international, who impressed on loan at Pride Park in the 2018/19 season.
2. Danny Rose (Tottenham)
Outcast Rose is facing the prospect of months on the sidelines if he cannot force a move away from the Premier League club.
The left-back has been frozen out completely by Jose Mourinho, even losing his squad number without a replacement.
Rose had been linked with a move to Genoa, but talks stalled a few weeks ago.
And it remains to be seen whether a drop down to the Championship would tempt him, even with the lure of regular first-team football.
3. Phil Jones (Man Utd)
Jones was left out of Manchester United's 25-man squad for the Champions League, raising doubts over his future this season.
The former Blackburn defender has endured a torrid time over the years, suffering with a string of injuries and also failing to nail down a regular starting spot.
But with United short on defensive cover, it's unclear whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be willing to let the ex-England international depart before the deadline.
However regular football would do no harm to Jones, who is undoubtedly desperate to revive his career after a tough spell at Old Trafford.
4. William Saliba (Arsenal)
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has seemingly suggested that William Saliba will be staying at the club despite speculation linking him with a loan move.
There were high hopes for the French centre-back when he returned from last season’s loan spell at Saint Etienne over the summer, with many believing he would become a first-choice name in Arteta’s defence.
But as of yet he has yet to make an appearance, with rumours that the 19-year-old is struggling to settle in England.
There were some suggestions he could make a move to a lower-league club before the end of the domestic transfer window on Friday, with the likes of Brentford touted as a possible destination.
But when asked about whether he thinks any players will leave on loan in the coming days, Arteta replied: “Not at the moment.”
However nothing can be ruled out until the deadline closes…
5. Christian Benteke (Crystal Palace)
With the Euros set to take place next summer, Christian Benteke surely needs to remind Roberto Martinez of his goalscoring exploits.
Unfortunately for the Palace striker, he's not done much in recent seasons, having endured a tough time with injuries.
And with compatriot Michy Batshuayi arriving at Selhurst Park on loan from Chelsea, Benteke has seemingly fallen further down the pecking order under Roy Hodgson.
If he wants to represent his country in the European showdown, he may well be forced to leave the South London club.
A move to the second tier seems very unlikely, but who knows?
6. Danny Drinkwater (Chelsea)
After a couple of underwhelming Premier League loan moves, Danny Drinkwater has been left with fewer options this season.
The midfielder, who cost Chelsea £35m back in 2017, hasn’t played for the Blues’ first team since the 2018 Community Shield.
He began the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Burnley but left with just one league appearance to his name, while a half-season stint at Aston Villa was marred by an altercation with team-mate Jota in training, and he didn’t feature for the Villains after February 16.
Drinkwater has spoken about the possibility of continuing his career overseas but he may also consider a temporary switch to the Championship if it guarantees him a fresh start.
7. Ryan Bennett (Wolves)

Ryan Bennett could be on his way out of Wolves, with former club Norwich leading the race to sign the defender.
Wolves signed Ki-Jana Hoever from Liverpool for around £9million this summer, pushing Bennett further down the pecking order at Molineux.
Bennett spent the second half of last season on loan at Leicester, making five appearances, but the Foxes opted not to trigger a £5million permanent deal.
He has been at Wolves since joining on a free from Norwich in 2017 and helped them win the Sky Bet Championship title in 2018.
8. Yannick Bolasie (Everton)
Though his Everton career has been blighted with a year-long lay off due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury in December 2016, Bolasie has never found his feet at the club, and his performances have reflected that.
Despite Everton’s dire need for a winger, Bolasie is clearly not viewed as the answer and has had spells on loan at Aston Villa, Anderlecht and Sporting Lisbon.
Everton will surely look to offload the former Crystal Palace man but they were unable to do so during the international window.
Bolasie has already shown a desire to drop down a division in search of first-team football – and could well repeat that decision on Friday.
9. Charlie Austin (West Brom)
Austin has proved to be a reliable goalscorer in the Championship and, having fallen down the pecking order at West Brom, may get an opportunity to show his value in the second tier.
Slaven Bilic has started Callum Robinson upfront in all four Premier League matches so far with Hal Robson-Kanu providing backup from the bench.
It seems Austin won't get much game time at The Hawthorns and had been linked with a move to Derby, though that has now fallen through after the Rams landed Colin Kazim-Richards on Thursday.
Cardiff are the latest team to show an interest in Austin, so it's certainly a saga to keep an eye on.
10. Michael Hector (Fulham)
Hector was in stunning form for Fulham last season as Scott Parker's side secured a return to the Premier League via the play-offs.
But the Jamaica international has endured a torrid start to the season, and Fulham brought in central defenders Joachim Andersen and Tosin Adarabioyo last week.
That has raised doubts over Hector's future, with QPR among the teams linked with a move for the 28-year-old Londoner.
Hector, formerly of Chelsea, has plenty of experience playing in the second tier, having enjoyed spells with Reading, Hull and Sheffield Wednesday.
