10 Free Transfers That Should Be On Our Radar

It’s hard to believe that the start of the summer transfer window is only around 5 weeks away – how time flies! Of course, the most important thing is to get the manager situation resolved before we get there, and rumours have surfaced that Tim Steidten has been asked to put a hold on transfer negotiations until this is done.

If there is any truth in that at all, then I do hope that does not include throwing our hat in the ring for out of contract players who are already negotiating or maybe even finalising deals. We don’t have a great record of capitalising on these opportunities for senior players – from memory I can’t think of any since Ryan Fredericks in 2018, but am happy to be corrected.

So, here are a list of potential free transfers this summer, which I hope have been high on our radar, even if they are highly unlikely in one or two cases.
