19 free agents Newcastle United could still sign this summer after Christian Eriksen blow

Hundreds of players across Europe are now free agents this summer.

With many players’ contracts up on June 30, they are now available to find a new club without a transfer fee being paid.

Newcastle United have already spent roughly £60million on the signings of Matt Targett (£15million), Nick Pope (£10million) and Sven Botman (£35million) so far.

But the free agent market also provides plenty of interesting options to sign quality players for nothing.

While wages and agents fees must be taken into consideration, there are many players out-of-contract as of July 1 that would improve Howe’s squad.

Newcastle had hoped to sign one of the most sought after free agents this summer in Christian Eriksen but the midfielder looks likely to join Manchester United having reportedly agreed terms.

We’ve looked at free agents across Europe and picked out 19 players who may be of some interest to Newcastle due to their quality, familiarity with the Premier League or simply because they have a previous connection to the club.

The Magpies may not be interested in many of these players but they remain free agent options for the club to pursue.
