The delay of the Premier League due to the coronavirus outbreak has caused unprecedented uncertainly for the whole of the sporting world.

Major events have been cancelled to disrupt the sporting calendar's busy schedule.

The Premier League has yet to be completed and question marks remain about what will happen for the remainder of the season.

Moreover, the postponement will also be a cause of confusion for those players out of contract this summer and already set for transfers on July 1.

There is a great chance that a longer-term stoppage could see the season run on into the summer, forcing teams to either hand out new deals, agree a short-term solution or replace key men.

There are also high-profile stars who have been linked with a move away from the top-flight and may have now played their last match for the clubs if the current campaign is voided.

But who are the players who may have had their careers with their clubs cut short by the coronavirus? has a detailed list below...

Pedro (Chelsea)

Whichever way the Premier League season ends, it will be the Spaniard's last at Stamford Bridge.

It's been an incredible five years with the 32-year-old making 201 appearances and scoring 43 times in all competitions.

He's also added the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League to his clutch of trophies, having won almost everything with Barcelona.

Pedro's energy and commitment to the cause will be hard to replace in west London.

David Silva (Manchester City)

The veteran midfielder's memorable decade in Manchester is coming to an endthis summer, with him seeking to add a third FA Cup and possibly a first Champions League title to his 11 major trophies with the club.

With 57 goals in a staggering 357 appearances, Silva is one of the Premier League's greatest ever Spaniards and his creativity and technical genius will be sorely missed in the top flight.

Paul Pogba (Manchester United)

The Frenchman's contract at United still has 18 months left to run but it seems like it's only a matter of time before he moves on from the club.

No one can doubt that Pogba is a supremely talented footballer but things just haven't worked out as well he'd hoped on his return to Manchester.

A return to Juventus has been mooted and it is believed Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is keen to bring him to the Bernabeu.

Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)

The teenager has dazzled this season in a magnificent campaign for the Gunners but he has so far failed to agree a new deal with the club.

This has seen interest heat up in his services, with Liverpool and Manchester United ready to make an offer for the full-back, according to The Mirror.

He was pushing for a role at Euro 2020 with England, although this is now likely to be delayed until next summer.

Harry Kane (Tottenham)

In recent weeks, speculation has mounted that the England captain could pursue a move away from Spurs.

It would be a surprise to see the striker, who has a staggering 136 goals in 198 Premier League appearances, leave this summer but there have been suggestions that does not want to be part of a major rebuild under Jose Mourinho and is desperate to play in the Champions League.

Like Pogba, a move to Juventus or Real Madrid has been rumoured for the forward.

Raheem Sterling (Man City)

The England winger's future at the club was thrown into question following the news that the club were facing a two-year expulsion from European competitions.

There were reports he was not willing to play in a team who were not competing in the Champions League and, unsurprisingly, Real Madrid were tipped as a destination.

Sterling's form has dipped in recent months and he may choose to force his way out of the club just like he did at Liverpool.

Willian (Chelsea)

The winger has been a good servant for Chelsea since his move to the club in 2013, but perhaps a touch inconsistent with only spells of excellence.

Willian has 33 goals in 226 appearances for the Blues and after failing to agree a new contract with the club he looks primed to move on after seven years.

Barcelona have been strongly linked with the player but Mourinho is said to be an admirer so he could make a switch to north London with Spurs.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)

The Gabon striker has been consistently brilliant since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in 2017, netting a staggering 49 Premier League goals in 75 appearances.

However, his contract expires in 18 months time and there are rumours that Barcelona are ready to snap him up as they search for a new No.9 to replace Luis Suarez.

Olivier Giroud (Chelsea)

Sidelined by the early-season form of Tammy Abraham, the veteran France striker has deputised effectively as the young Englishman has struggled with injury.

The Frenchman scored in recent Premier League wins over Tottenham and Everton but it is increasingly likely he leaves Stamford Bridge, with a move back to his homeland mooted as he focuses on a European Championship squad place.

Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham)

His defensive partner and countryman Toby Alderweireld extended his contract in January but Vertonghen is yet to follow.

The Belgian ace netted a late winner against Wolves in the league and also netted in the FA Cup exit to Norwich, while he reached 300 games for the club on Boxing Day against Brighton.

Super Jan has been a real hero in north London and will be fondly remember by all if he has played his final game for the club.
