Clubs are looking to be smart in the transfer window trying to get the best deal.

What's a better deal than free?

Here are 12 BIG names who are without a contract that Championship clubs should be targeting.

Martin Olsson

News Shopper:

The 31-year-old Swede is without a club since his time at Swansea expired. Quick and with good delivery, there are worse left-backs out there and Millwall could be interested.

Boaz Myhill

News Shopper:

At 36 he’s not one for the future but has all the experience having played at every level. Could be a player that could push and teach Dillon Phillips at Charlton.

Kadeem Harris

News Shopper:

Cardiff forward has been told he can leave after four years in south Wales. Who ever picks up the 26-year-old on a free will do very well.

Jonas Olsson

News Shopper:

A canny operator at the heart of the defence having worked under Mr Pulis. He’s not young at 36, but he’ll be a solid squad player in a long season.

Joe Ledley

News Shopper:

The somewhat forgotten man. Left Derby with a bitter taste in his mouth and wanting to prove he still has something to offer. A sturdy centre midfielder who has played at all levels with success.

James Morrison

News Shopper:

The youthful looking 32-year-old is often the unsung hero. He has goals in his game and could add experience to many an outfit.

Bakary Sako

News Shopper:

The former Crystal Palace and West Brom is without a club since his short spell at Selhurst last season. The powerful winger would cause a real threat to any side in the Championship…if fit.

George Boyd

News Shopper:

At 33 he’s past his best but those who saw his fleeting appearances for Sheffield Wednesday last season will know he is capable of turning a game. Won’t stay without a club for long.

Albert Adomah

News Shopper:

A lot of people were surprised when Aston Villa didn’t offer him a new contract, Bristol and Millwall are thought to be keen on the speedster.

Josh McEachran

News Shopper:

At 26 he still has time to fulfil the huge potential he showed whilst in the youth set-up at Chelsea. Brentford failed to unleash it, but could another side?

Lewis MacLeod

News Shopper:

Similar to McEachran, Brentford let him go, which was a surprise considering Ranger and Leeds were touted suitors last year. At 25, he’s in his prime.


Jason Puncheon

News Shopper:

The Palace thorough-bred is keen to get game time. He may not get the chance in the top flight but should a Championship side get him signed surely they will be towards the top half of the table, still has that wand of a left-foot, if not the pace.
