Every summer there are at least one or two players that are seemingly incapable of finding a club. This squad may be edging the wrong side of 30, but they are all still capable of doing a job for any number of Premier League sides.
GK – Craig Gordon
Previous clubs: Hearts, Sunderland
Honours: Scottish Cup (2006)
Country: Scotland (40 caps)
At one point the former Hearts man was Britain’s most expensive goalkeeper when he made the move from Edinburgh to Sunderland for £9m in 2007. However, injury and loss of form prevented him from reaching his true potential and he is now without a club whilst he undergoes rehabilitation for his fitness problems. Now attracting interest from Everton and Udinese, he will be entering his peak at 30-years-old and could be worth the gamble.
