Steve Bruce, Gary Ablett and Barry Horne are the latest players unhappy at St Andrews, joining disgruntled Mike Newell.
Bruce blew his top at the threat of being left out at Wolves - Francis believed he wasn't ready after injury. In the end, Bruce played and Ablett was out, leaving him seething.
Meanwhile, Newell is waiting for his next move. QPR, Sunderland, Forest, Celtic, Manchester City and Norwich have all shown interest.
