The European transfer window may have come to a close, but that doesn’t mean your club can’t still sign players.
Those available as ‘free agents’ are allowed to move outside of the transfer window parameters and there are some decent players available in this category right now.
Below, we’ve provided 15 players still on the market and surely deserving of a new footballing home in the coming months.
FABIO COENTRAO – 31-YEARS-OLD
Fancy a former Real Madrid marquee signing with a point to prove in his twilight years? Coentrao is your man.

HATEM BEN ARFA – 32-YEARS-OLD
Frustrating? Yes. An exciting playmaker and available for free? Also yes. Someone give this skill machine a home for 2019/20.
FREDY GUARIN – 33-YEARS-OLD
A FIFA midfield legend and Guarin is now free and available after a successful spell in China. His wages might be a bit pricey, though…
KEISUKE HONDA – 33-YEARS-OLD
Honda is the current manager of the Cambodian national team, but hasn’t called time on his playing career yet. Anyone fancy taking a gamble on a player-manager?
OBAFEMI MARTINS – 34-YEARS-OLD
Martins has now been without a club for a year after being released by Shanghai Shenhua on 1 June 2018.
IGNAZIO ABATE – 32-YEARS-OLD
A former Italy and AC Milan right-back, Abate still has plenty left in the tank at the ripe age of 32.
JEREMY MENEZ – 32-YEARS-OLD
Similar to Ben Arfa, a team needs to give the unpredictable – yet mesmerising – Menez a chance this season, just for the tricks, flicks and headlines.
MARKEL SUASETA – 31-YEARS-OLD
One of La Liga’s most dependable wingers down the years and a hero at Athletic Bilbao. Need we say more?
MILE JEDINAK – 35-YEARS-OLD
The Australian midfield general probably only has a season or two left in his legs, but that shouldn’t deter those in England’s lower leagues.
WILFRIED BONY – 30-YEARS-OLD
Bony was recently spotted training with Newport County after being released by Swansea. There could still be some goals left in the Ivorian striker…
CLAUDIO MARCHISIO – 33-YEARS-OLD
Things didn’t work out at Zenit and persistent injuries are an issue, but on his day, Marchisio is an elite-level midfielder.
BAKARY SAKO – 31-YEARS-OLD
Sako might not be Premier League-quality anymore, but clubs in England’s lower divisions should be all over the Malian winger.
DANNY SIMPSON – 32-YEARS-OLD
Like Sako, Simpson is not cut out for the intensity of Premier League football anymore. However, the Championship would be the perfect place for the Leicester legend.
ANDREA BERTOLACCI – 28-YEARS-OLD
An Italian international centre-mid in his prime available for free? Sounds too good to be true, but that’s the situation with Bertolacci right now after being released by AC Milan.
LUCAS SILVA – 26-YEARS-OLD
Remember him? Real Madrid signed the Brazilian midfielder way back in 2015 and at the age of just 26, he’s rescinded his contract with Los Blancos and is seeking a new challenge.
