Free Agents

It goes without saying it’s not been the transfer window we all expected to say we have come up short is an understatement.
We desperately need another quality centre midfield right back and left back now Cunningham has gone so no cover there.
Our only hope we can find 2/3 free agents Wanyama has been freed I believe by Spurs and Danny Simpson still available.

Can we still sign free agents outside of a transfer window? I'm not 100% but didnt the rules change or am I imagining it?

Yes and No.....

Yes we can still sign a free agent but they wouldn’t be able to be listed in the official 25 until January 1st (start of the next window)

Thought only the premier league had to name 25 man squad
What if the free agent was under 23 as they dont have to be in the 25 man squad ??

Still can’t be registered for the 1st team until the next window opens, Championship is falling inline with the PL on all aspects of the transfer window as of this summer window

So under 23 free agents only can play straight away

But you can use your under 23 players without them being named in the 25 player squad
Im sure that is premier league rules or at least it was last year

How good would Danny Simpson be as cover for the right back position he is a free agent. :bluebird:

Free agents can be registered any time, (see 43.2 and 43.2.1) and there is no 25-man squad limit, that is for the premier league.

Frazer Campbell signed for Huddersfield so looks like you can sign free agents
