As the summer nears and contracts come to an end, should Brighton be interested in any of the following free transfers?

The Chronicle Live have done the legwork on this one so I take no blame, compiling the ‘main’ players at each club who could find themselves unemployed come the summer for a period of time until they pick up a new club or potentially hang up their boots.

But there are some interesting names on the list who you would think could still do a decent job in one capacity or another, and the question becomes do you think they could do a job for Brighton in the 2016/17 campaign?

It must be noted, this isn’t the full list of top flight players out of contract come the end of the current campaign, just the more accepted ‘first team squad’ members.

Out of the 47 listed – any take your fancy?
