Premier League players out of contract

Recommended Posts

The BBC have this article about PL players who might be available on a free transfer. Apart from the ones expected to retire, most of them are either too old for us or too costly in terms of wages-or both! 

The only one I would be vaguely excited about is Tommie Hoban from Watford but he’s had horrendous injury problems.

None of those fit the mould for Norwich IMO

Alan Dzagoev would be an interesting possibility however...

Great player, would be excellent in the 10 if his injuries are behind him/haven't taken too much of a toll

Danny Simpson could be a good back up (and tutor) for Max Aarons. We need a right back as cover, and Simpson on a free could be a cheap, reliable, home-grown option. He's still only 32 and was a Premier League winner three years ago, so could still offer something if he's prepared to come here as a fringe player.

I was hoping for Vincent Company but now I don't know whether we need to be looking at Prem cast offs. We will be a Prem team next season so why have someone else's past sell by date.

I hope we look for youngish, hungry players with bags of potential. I don't know what the club's policy is at the moment but I don't see any value in buying someone in the hope of hanging on for a season. Whoever brought Max, Jamal, Ben etc into the club has done a great job and we can hold on to them them we have a chance of creating our own dynasty, not copying someone elses.

We've only just managed to unload Naismith and Jarvis, we don't need to start picking up more expensive cast offs.

Shows how crazy youth development is if Liverpool signed him for a million on his sixteenth birthday, and they're letting him go.

Not sure if we'd be interested, we seem to have a far few centre backs already in the U-23s, and not sure how good he is if Liverpool are letting him go.

Pukki, Trybull, Krul, Zimmermann...

Sometimes other clubs' cast-offs aren't too bad.

I did say expensive, and the thread is about Premiership players.
