This site shows 55 countries throughout the world where the transfer window is still open with another 5 where the window will open soon.

With 25 registered players currently qualified as over 21 the only way we can bring in further free agent players is by selling players to these countries before their individual deadlines.
In order to stop clubs cheating the system you cannot now simply cancel a players contract outside of our window in order to free up a space whilst incoming players must have had their previous contracts cancelled before the end of our transfer window.
The most attractive leagues are Spain (Sept 1 at 23:59 local time) and Turkey (Sept 8 at 23:00). Australia and New Zealand (both Oct 16) could be attractive to British players whilst Qatar (Sep 30) could be most lucrative.
The last current window to close is Yemen on Nov 23rd and then there is always Niger which is openning in 75 days time until Jan 31 2018.

We need to call in all possible favours with foreign contacts and agents to create openings for the additional strikers we obviously still need.

Could Dougie even phone up his old mate Tony Popovic at Western Sydney Wanderers to organise a deal?


Edit: Forgot about implications of the squad nomination deadline at 4 pm on Sept 1st.

Player would need to be sold before 4pm deadline to leave a space available in the squad which can then be replaced at a later date by a free agent. Once named they can not be replaced even if sold later.

If we were able to ship out, say, Jordon Mutch on an emergency loan to Bromley (or even a slow boat to Botany Bay) could we bring a free agent, or would we still have over-21s in the pecking order? How many do we need to move out before a spot actually becomes available in this way?

Mutch to Yemen sounds attractive.

Mutch would need to move to a foreign league. With 25 qualified each over 21 we could move out creates a space for a free agent. Of our current squad you are probably looking at Mutch, Delaney, Kelly, Lee or even Perntreou (although you would probably need a replacement keeper).

Any deal would possibly require us to still pay substantial part of wages/

We can hope that Palace paid up someone's contract last night and made them a free agent, creating a space in the squad.
