A long list of Championship players are without a club this summer as sides confirmed their released stars following the end of the Championship season.

Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion were outshone in the Championship this season by noisy midlands neighbours Coventry City, who are vying for promotion via the play-off final, but fans will be looking forward to next season.

West Brom narrowly missed out on promotion this season while Birmingham City steered clear of the relegation zone by a comfortable margin come the end of the campaign.
