Championship Free Agents 2017

Championship Free Agents 2017

As the summer nears and contracts come to an end, should the club have an interest in any of the following free transfers from Championship oppositions?

I haven't done the legwork on this one as lists have been well publicised the last few weeks - I've just combined them and updated as best I can with deals I know of to make it accurate - so I take no blame!

So with the caveat of not believing any of these have signed new deals, announced their retirement or already pre contracted themselves to anybody else (discussions may well be underway though), are there any you'd like to line up in the shirt for the 2017/18 campaign?

(Any glaring errors feel free to point out in article comments!)

Some young potentials for the future - experienced internationals maybe ready for one final challenge?

There are certainly plenty of recognisable names - but of course they come with financial commitments even as free transfers.

Or alternatively are there any you would avoid with somebody else's bargepole!
