5 former Premier League players who are currently free agents
The January transfer window officially shut at the end of January and clubs around Europe are now only allowed to bolster their squads by signing free agents.
The transfer window this January was a lot more exciting than usual winter transfer windows, with several high profile players seeking new employers. While a few of the players were coaxed into longer stays with their current employers, a few players managed to find themselves to be free agents, with no clubs to play for.
However, these players continue to strengthen and develop their skills working individual training sessions to improve and hopefully get employed as quickly as possible.
On that note, here we take a look at 5 former Premier League players who are currently free agents:
#5 Alex Song
Former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder, Alex Song left former employers Rubin Kazan on the final day of the January transfer window. The Cameroonian is currently a free agent and unemployed.
The 30-year-old holding midfielder is a great reader of the game and has an excellent passing range that could suit many a club in need of a possession-centred footballer.
With great positional skill, coupled with great composure and the ability to break up play and create attacks, Song is a top professional who will be on the radar of many clubs vying for his services. Song began his career with FC Bastia in France before moving to England and playing for Arsenal and West Ham, and is currently reportedly training with the Gunners in a bid to maintain his form.
