Older Players On The Move

Maybe I was too caught up with finding new ways to combine drinking beer and cycling but somehow I missed FIFA's new rule on player contracts. Luckily A Kick In The Grass didn't overlook things. They take a look at how the first player to make use of it may the Argentine Gabriel Heinze. The rule is that players who signed their contract before the age of 28 and that have it's been 3 years since that contract was signed can leave their club if they buy out the remainder of their own contract. What players beside Heinze are affected by this new rule? Will we start to see clubs making a point to sign a player when they're 29 instead of 28?
