When free stuffcome in the form of well-endowed Premier League players, there are very few things that are sweeter. Who doesnt like freebies? Its like asking who doesnt want to feel good. These deals represent a shrewd piece of business which can make a huge difference come the end of the season for the respective teams, whether it be for pushing for the championship or escape from the dropzone.Here are 5 of the best free agent signings so far in the Premier League this summer:
#5 Rio Ferdinand - Queen Park Rangers
Harry Redknapp needs all the experience he can get in QPRs’ first season back in the Premier League and that’s exactly what Rio Ferdianand gives them.
At the age of 35, Ferdinand’s best days are way behind him. However, he brings to Loftus Road something which only a few can offer – the experience of playing 18 seasons in the Premier League and the pedigree of a winner.
They say “iron sharpens iron”. Not only will Ferdinand provide a calm head and leadership at the back for Harry Redknapp, he will be an encyclopedia for yougsters to read into every day at the training ground.
Steven Caulker couldn’t have asked for a much better opportunity to learn. And Redknapp couldn’t have got a better deal.
