10 African Free Agents Who Could Still Move After Deadline

Despite the transfer window closing on Monday, several African stars, including former players from Arsenal and Manchester City as well as two ex-PSL forwards, could still move to new clubs.

Click through the gallery above to see some African players who could still join a new team, despite the transfer window being closed.

Even though the European window closed this week, clubs can still sign and register free agents as long as they were not registered with another team at the start of the season.

As such, there are still several African stars on the market, with former Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony arguably the biggest name. The 30-year-old was a surprise inclusion in the Ivory Coast's 2019 Africa Cup of Nations squad and even made four appearances, albeit without finding the back of the net. At club level, though, things have not been as rosy for Bony. His loan deal with Qatari side Al Arabi ended in June, as did his contract with Championship side Swansea, and no team has offered him a new deal since.

In goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama, a former Afcon winner is also a free agent. The Nigerian shot-stopper, who lifted the continental trophy in 2013, was a first-team regular at LOSC Lille until 2016/17, but fell down the pecking order the following campaign. He spent one year with the club's reserve side before his contract expired. He has failed to secure a new team since August 2018, and his struggles ultimately also cost him his spot in Nigeria's national team.

Former Arsenal defender Johan Djourou, who was born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, but later switched his allegiance to Switzerland and represented them on 76 occasions, is another African player, who could be signed on a free deal. He made 144 appearances for the Gunners but was sold to Hamburg in 2014, and his career has gone downwards ever since. Following stints with Antalyaspor and SPAL, he has been without a club since January 2019.

South African fans will still remember former FC Cape Town striker Emmanuel Emenike, who has represented clubs such as Fenerbahce, West Ham United, UD Las Palmas and Olympiacos, among others, since leaving the PSL side. However, he, too, is a free agent, and was last with a club in July 2018.
