25 soon-to-be free agents available to Birmingham City - including Sheffield United pair - transfer gallery
With the summer transfer window approaching, Birmingham City will be keeping an eye on the free agents market - and these 25 names are set to be available.
Birmingham City had their best season in six years as they hit the 53-point mark and comfortably survived relegation to League One by achieving a 17th-placed finish in the Sky Bet Championship.
The campaign may have ended with three successive defeats but there was a party atmosphere at St Andrew’s on the final day after it was announced Tom Wagner and Shelby Companies Limited had agreed a takeover of the club.
Supporters had been protesting all campaign long for a switch over in ownership and it now seems they will get just that. An exciting summer awaits as Blues look to rebuild their squad for next term.
Birmingham are still unlikely to have the financial backing of teams near the top of the table, but they will definitely have more freedom than they did throughout 2022/23.
The free agents market could be highly beneficial as it’s a cheap and efficient way of bringing in new players. Kevin Long was a fine example as he did brilliantly to form a nice partnership with Marc Roberts in defence.
It’s likely that John Eustace and company will be keeping a close eye on players across the division leaving clubs at the end of their current deals, with a few pickups possible.
With that in mind, we’ve taken a look at 24 players in the Championship set to become free agents at the end of June, as well as one Manchester United player who could be a realistic coup.
