West Ham United goalkeeper Robert Green admits there will be a big clearout in the summer.
"We've got six international centre halves out injured so it's a good job we've got James Tomkins waiting in the wings and him being as good as he is.
"The situation is incredible and you've never seen anything like it. You look at something like Portsmouth's squad - it's a lot smaller but they've got players who have played week in week out.
"It shows what kind of situation it has been. So with regards to cutting the squad down, I think it's inevitable really.
"But you look at it and say where can we cut it down? You look at the players out injured and the players who you'd maybe look to cut - but being able to cut down on it is another matter."
