Premier League – 6 Players

Championship – 13 Players

League One – 7 Players

League Two – 10 Players

Non League – 13 Players

Abroad – 6 Players

Free Agents – 19 Players

 

 

These are the 74 English Players who were on the Premier League Released List at the end of the 2014/15 season. Of these 74 there are 55 footballers who’ve found new clubs. Of the players who are now free agents, some will get snapped up over the next few months whilst some will inevitably fall out of the game.

Of these 74 only 19 managed to get signed by Premier League & Championship teams. Last year the figure was 26 out of 71 English Players so it’s fallen. It might be that last year’s group was better; it’s hard to draw broad conclusions.

What’s clear is that if you are released by a Premier League club & under 21 then it’s harder to get a new club. Of the 25 Under 21’s who did find another team, 8 have gone into non league. Some of them might work their way back up the leagues but some won’t. It’s much more difficult once you fall out of the professional game.

The main development proviso hasn’t really changed. English Footballers aged over 21 who get released by Premier League clubs are nearly 20% more likely to find a new club by the end of the transfer window. That’s tells a cautionary story. Lower league clubs are reticent to try & develop young academy or u21 players who get released from Premier League teams and it can be a long road when release day comes.
