Several decent players are scampering to get employed ahead of the 2017/18 Scottish Premiership season.

The free agents are not having it easy getting new deals despite their experience and offerings to Premiership sides.

Craig Sibbald

The under-23 star needs a deal but since he is a product of Falkirk’s youth system, he would cost around £250,000 to land the player. His purported move to Luton Town failed so the centre midfielder is still searching for employers. He scored his most in a season last year when he netted 10 goals. He is a decent player but the price might be deterring clubs. His salary would be within range as he is no Kolo Toure but the price is the thing.

Clint Hill

The player would need a pay cut to remain in the league in the new season. For him to have moved to Rangers, his earnings would have been decent. Instead of playing mediocre football in a small English club he could play at the top level in Scotland. He is valuable as a veteran but his stay depends on many factors. AndrazStruna is another one that might need a pay cut to remain in the league.

Sean Welsh

Welsh proved himself last season in Partick Thistle’s side. He also proved that he is surely injury prone so Alan Archibald had to look elsewhere for stability. His fitness record is scaring off Scottish sidesss even though they are aware of his worth. This is the same situation Kris Commons is in. Hibs want him but his fitness is key.

Josh Meekings

The 24-year old remains a top player in the league. Aside loss in form, the fullback has battled injury that has affected him. He is in training with Dundee and would be a good fit if they are open to receiving him. He was once one of the best prospects in the league, he just needs a fresh fertile ground.
