The transfer window is all done and dusted in the Premier League… but there are still a host of star names without a club.
From Premier League-winning stars to some of Europe’s hottest names, some freebies are yet to be snapped up for absolutely nothing.
John Terry, Patrice Evra, Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri are just four such players waiting patiently for a club to step forward.
Claudio Marchisio is just one other former superstar currently being left to rot… as is Hatem Ben Arfa.
We’ve taken a look at the best free agent XI below as clubs conclude their business for the summer.
GOALKEEPER – Oscar Ustari
FORMER Sunderland and Argentina star Ustari is currently without a club having left Atlas at the end of last season.
At 32-years-old, he’s not at retirement age just yet – with Independiente, Boca Juniors and Getafe on his CV, he should be snapped up soon.
THESE ARE THE CHEAPEST PLACES TO BUY FIFA 19 – PICK IT UP HERE:
RIGHT-BACK – Glen Johnson
JOHNSON was released by Championship new boys Stoke this summer and is now hunting for a new team.
The 54-cap England star played at Liverpool, Portsmouth, Chelsea and West Ham prior to his days at the bet365 Stadium and would bring experience to an in-need squad.
CENTRE-BACK – John Terry
WHAT more can you say that hasn’t already been said? Still known by the Chelsea faithful as “captain, leader, legend”, JT left Aston Villa this summer.
The England legend racked up 78 caps for his country… and with 759 first-team appearances under his belt will surely not be without a club for long.
CENTRE-BACK – James Collins
COLLINS will be hurting this summer… after he was horrendously dumped by West Ham over email.
The Welsh veteran gave everything to the Hammers and was shunned in disgraceful manner, but he is back training with the club and could be given a new deal.
LEFT-BACK – Patrice Evra
ALMOST as famous now for his social media antics as his football, Evra failed to set the world alight at West Ham.
But aged 37, the 81-cap France international and five-time Premier League champion is still determined to keep plugging away… if anyone will give him a shot.
CENTRAL MIDFIELD – Yaya Toure
THREE-TIME Premier League champion Toure was finally let go by Pep Guardiola this summer.
With stints at Manchester City, Barcelona and Monaco under his belt, it won’t be long until someone takes a chance on the former superstar.
CENTRAL MIDFIELD – Alberto Aquilani
TIPPED for stardom at Liverpool, things never really panned out for the former Roma star.
Stints at Fiorentina and Sporting Lisbon followed – amongst others – but he is now without a club after being released by Las Palmas last season.
CENTRAL MIDFIELD – Claudio Marchisio

ITALIAN star Marchisio finally ended his love-affair with Juventus, after 13 years in the first-team – and 25 years at the club in total.
Now aged 32-years-old, the midfielder still has plenty to offer and should be snapped up by someone soon.
FORWARD – Hatem Ben Arfa
AFTER sub-par spells at Newcastle and Hull, Ben Arfa shone at Nice… so brightly in fact he snared a move to Ligue 1 giants PSG.
However, after failing to regularly break into the first XI, he is now a free agent and an intriguing prospect for a host of clubs.
FORWARD – Giuseppe Rossi
ANOTHER to flop in the Premier League, with Man United, and thrive elsewhere, Rossi was a star at Villarreal.
He then moved to Fiorentina before spending last season at Genoa and now a free agent, he’ll be keen to prove he’s still got goals in him, aged 31.
FORWARD – Samir Nasri
A TWO-TIME Premier League champion who has played for Arsenal, Man City and Sevilla, Nasri was at Antalyaspor last season.
Just eight appearances in the Super Lig last season saw him leave this summer… is he worth a punt for a Prem side for 2018-19?
