Confirmed EFL Free Agents 2017

Confirmed EFL Free Agents 2017

With clubs confirming their retained and released lists to the EFL by the deadline, a few well known names are now free agents, as are potential stars for the future.

There are a good number of youngsters available for capture and whilst they'll have some hopes of being taken on by other Championship sides, chances are most will find homes at League One and League Two level as they keep themselves in the professional ladder and look to kick on again at pastures.

All club's retained lists are available by visiting the efl.com and whilst the released list is not designed to be exhaustive, it's fair to say some players listed may have received late contract offers or have already secured their futures elsewhere or even still be mulling offers over and I've updated as best I can on that front but I won't have got it 100%.

The EFL released this list yesterday but they themselves point to the fact that it was 100% accurate only as of May 20, so a players' status may have changed since the list was submitted remember.

But as a guide to potential free agents as fans cherry pick players they'd like to see turn up at their clubs this summer, it's as good a guide as any.

The EFL key is as follows:

(o) players under 24 year with a contract expiry of June 30 with an offer.

(h) players who do not hold a current contract, but club retains registration.

(m) player under 24 years employed on a monthly contract as per May 20.

(w) player under 24 years employed on a week to week basis as per May 20.
