10 eye-catching free agents available to Sheffield Wednesday, Sunderland and Birmingham City

Sheffield Wednesday likely won't be splashing the cash come January, but there are options available to the club on a free transfer.

One win in the opening 16 Championship fixtures for Sheffield Wednesday points to a squad that isn't quite ready to challenge in the second division after last year's dramatic promotion. The Owls are already nine points adrift from safety and four defeats in the last five isn't an inspiring run of form from Danny Rohl's side. Sadly, there isn't likely to be any funding coming the club's way from unpopular owner Dejphon Chansiri anytime soon either.

That could leave the club having to explore free-agent deals for players currently without a club. The Star looks at 10 players that could tempt Sheffield Wednesday, ranked by market value provided by Transfermarkt.
