Who goes in January sale?

Okay, so Jose has stated that only one of his first-team squad will be allowed to go out on loan during the January sales.

First of all, this contradicts what he said last week following their home victory over Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup.

He stated that there would be no one else coming in and no one going out and he said no one was unhappy.

Now it's become clear that Carlton Cole, Wayne Bridge and Glen Johnson have expressed a desire for first-team action.

So with that U-turn acknowledged, who is going to be the one to go and is there a way back for them if they leave?

Top of the list is Wayne Bridge with Spurs, Fulham and Portsmouth keen to take him.
Chelsea have a problem at left-back and it would seem a strange release from a footballing point of view.

Bridge habours an England World Cup berth and that could prove tempting for him.

Cole is a fringe striker but with Drogba away on International duty, Cole could be forgiven to think he has a shot of first team action.
But Mourinho prefered Crespo for the visit to Sunderland on Sunday and thus Cole must now recognise his chances of league and Champions League action are virtually nil.
Glen Johnson is touted for a move back to West Ham or off to France to Lyon.

So who will go?
I don't know, do you?
