Home Football Manager 2019 Shortlists 10 Post Deadline Day Free Agents

10 Post Deadline Day Free Agents




The winter transfer window has closed in most parts of the world, but there are still players available to sign as free agents. We take a look at some of the top free agents in Football Manager 2019, who you will be able to sign as free agents if you use the FMI 2019 Update.

Yohan Cabaye (33)

A player with an array of experience in the best leagues, including the Premier League and Ligue 1. The 33-year-old midfielder was surprisingly released on a free transfer by Al-Nasr and is still a quality player. Available for any team in a top 5 league, should be available for top teams in leagues below that.

Yohan Cabaye

Benoit Tremoulinas (32)

The left full-back has been without a club for roughly 18 months after the former France international left Sevilla on a free transfer in July 2017. Despite his lack of games or football in general, Tremoulinas is still a good addition to a squad as cover or back-up.

Stéphane M’Bia (32)

The 32-year-old Cameroonian holding midfielder has been a free transfer since his contract in China was terminated. The former Sevilla and Olympique Marseille midfielder could well act as cover for mid-table teams in the Premier League, but he is also willing to sign for clubs in the Championship.

Stephane Mbia

Obafemi Martins (34)

Quick as lightning! The former Newcastle United and Internazionale striker is 34-years-old and has never stayed at a club longer than one or two seasons, but if you like to play a 4-4-2 with a target man and poacher, Martins is an amazing free agent to acquire in some lower leagues.

Gregory van der Wiel (30)

The former Dutch international played in a World Cup final in 2010 and signed for Paris Saint-Germain not long after that. In the past few years Van der Wiel has been having difficulties finding his form, but in FM19 he could be a very useful right wing-back.

Emanuel Emenike (31)

Released by Las Palmas last summer the former Fenerbahçe and West Ham United striker is a typical target man that uses his physique to challenge opponents. Could be the ideal super sub if you decide to play long balls into the box.

Abou Diaby (32)

He was tipped as the successor of Patrick Vieira at Arsenal, but injuries held him from reaching his full potential. He is injury prone in FM19, so be careful with him. But, the former France international is still a quality midfielder. He is willing to sign for clubs in the Championship for a 5k-per-week wage.

Abou Diaby

Ibrahim Afellay (32)

He was signed by Pep Guardiola at FC Barcelona at one point of his career and many thought he could develop into a star for the Spanish giants. Two serious knee injuries have withheld the 53-time Dutch international of truly reaching his full potential. Afellay was released by Stoke City on a free transfer and is ready to sign for clubs at Championship level.

Younes Kaboul (32)

The 32-year-old French centre-back was released by Watford after he struggled with injuries. Kaboul has a lot of experience in the Premier League, playing for Tottenham, Portsmouth, Sunderland and Watford. He is not the quickest centre-back anymore, but for a lower team he could be a valuable asset. Is willing to join on a 30k-per-week salary.

Younes Kaboul

Jeremy Toulalan (34)

The experienced former France international has been looking for a club since January 2018 after leaving Girondins Bourdeaux. The 34-year-old is a solid defensive midfielder and still has enough qualities to play in top leagues outside of the top 5 in Europe.

Latest players

Lewis Cook

Lewis Cook is one of the ideal Brexit players to keep watching. He plays for Bournemouth, but is keen on moving to one of the club inside the top 6. He will cost you roughly around 45 to 50 million and that is considered a steal for this type of player in the Premier League. He is a very good playmaker and could easily play for one of the big teams in the Premier League.

Lisandro Martinez

Lisandro Martinez is a real catch in Football Manager 2019. The young Argentinian is a talented centre-back and is available for an expected 7M transfer fee. Ideal player to have if you like longer saves and need a good ball playing defender who is able to develop a lot.

Julian Brandt

Julian Brandt has the potential to become one of the elite players in Football Manager 2019. The German winger shows some lethal skills and will have no trouble with playing for the biggest clubs in the world. He has a 70m price tag, which seems a fair price in modern football.

Franck Kessie

If you are looking for a tireless midfielder Franck Kessie could be the ideal player for you. The Ivorian international has all the attributes for a very good ball-winning midfielder. However, it is not possible to sign Kessie in the first two seasons as he is on a loan from Atalanta and will sign on a permanent deal for Milan in the summer of 2019.

Javairo Dilrosun

Former Manchester City left winger Javairo Dilrosun is considered as one of the bigger talents from Holland. He has the potential to become a regular international and is a very handy player if you love a left-footed left winger that will cross in the ball onto your striker. For 22.5 he could be yours, so keep an eye out for him!

Josip Brekalo

Josip Brekalo is a talented player who could develop into an awesome inside forward. The Croatian international is already a first team regular at Wolfsburg and it is expected that he will leave the club on a short term. Keep him on your shortlist as the expected 60m fee could drop after a couple of seasons.
