With the transfer window officially closed, here are 12 high-profile players who are still without clubs, including two South African stars who play abroad.

Click through the gallery above to see 12 players who are still without a team, according to Transfermarkt.

An exciting transfer window came to a close in the early hours of Wednesday morning, during which Antoine Griezmann completed a dramatic return to Atletico Madrid from Barcelona and Saul Niguez joined Chelsea.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo also moved to new clubs in August, as did Romelu Lukaku, who also joined the Blues, and Jack Grealish, who became the most expensive Premier League signing of all time with his transfer from Aston Villa to Manchester City.

A few big names, however, have entered September without being on the books of any club, such as Ivory Coast right-back Serge Aurier, who agreed a mutual termination of his contract at Tottenham Hotspur on deadline day.

Brazilian centre-back David Luiz has not yet signed for a new team since departing Mikel Arteta's Arsenal, with former Gunners and England midfielder Jack Wilshere in the same boat.

In a recent interview with The Athletic, the 29-year-old discussed the downward trajectory his career has been on since leaving the north London club in July 2018. Wilshere made 198 senior appearances for Arsenal, whom he regrets cutting ties with.
