Free Agent

Skysports.com looks at this summer's bargain buys

Skysports.com is pleased to launch a new feature that will run throughout the summer as we look at football's Free Agents.

With the football world having been hit by the global recession as much as any other business, most clubs are cutting their cloth accordingly with more and more seasoned professionals looking to find employment.

The market place is at its most competitive as it has been for years, with only the uber-rich willing to house squads that swell beyond what is strictly necessary.

A list of free agents released by the PFA contained some familiar names - Michael Owen, Darius Vassell and Didi Hamann spring to mind - but only the top stars will be guaranteed football for next season. For the rest, a summer of uncertainty and no little worry awaits.

Our Free Agent feature will encompass an interview with the player, discussing their thoughts on being released, what kind of club they are looking for and the type of skills they offer.

A fact box will include their Football CV - clubs played for, appearances, position, honours etc - as we look to put footballers on the lookout for a new club in the shop window.

We'd like to hear your thoughts on the best free transfers out there. Who should we be talking to? Who are this summer's bargains? Who should your club be targeting?

Maybe you're a player that would like to be featured, or an agent looking to get a client fixed up for next season.
