Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson hopes to raise extra transfer funds by selling a raft of his fringe players.

The Times says City are keen to offload several players, with Georgios Samaras, Andreas Isaksson, Ousmane Dabo, Paul Dickov, Danny Mills and Matthew Mills seemingly surplus to requirements. Together, those six players account for about £5 million of the annual wage bill and could fetch £5 million in transfer fees.
