The ex-Sunderland & Newcastle United free agents most clubs could still sign – including players linked with the North East duo
This summer, more than any other, football seems to be awash with players still looking for clubs.

As a result, a whole host of players continue to work alone, without a club and the season well under way.
Here we take a look at 21 players who've either played for Newcastle United or Sunderland or have been linked with either of our North East clubs.
