    These are the pick of the frees-
    Jack Rodwell 28
    Josh McEachran 26
    Lewis Holtby 28
    Will Buckley 29
    David Meyler 30
    Grant Ward 24 (recovering from ACL Dec 18)
    Will Keane 26
    Tom Adeyami 27

    Some ‘names’ there-obvious one for me is Grant Ward-bloody brilliant but has already turned down Rotherham in July waiting for Championship offers.

    Do we need them? Would they add anything to our squad?

    Will Buckley looked like he was going to go on to great things when i watched him play at Rochdale a few years ago. Seems his career never really took off the way we thought it would but i wouldn't mind taking a gamble on him for free. I suspect though he will get interest from higher up the food chain.

    McEachran has been training with Sheffield Wednesday apparently.

    Jack Rodwells record is pretty torturous isn't it. Been transferred for some pretty big fees in the past too.

    I think most would improve the squad and unless they demand ridiculous wages, they would be worth a gamble. You’d think we’d be in the driving seat negotiations wise, as they’re essentially unemployed.

    However it all depends where MR believes we need strengthening. Another winger and/creative midfielder wouldn’t go amiss.

    Dream on. Well above our level. Played for Hamburg in 2.Bundesliga last year, and their fans started a petition to get the club to renew his contract. He's at least Championship level, maybe even premier league level.
