There are a few superb free transfers available this summer, and our old friend Manuel Fernandes (Manny to his mates) could be the best of the lot.
The Portuguese midfielder is 26, and has been playing for Turkish side Besiktas over the past two seasons. His time in Turkey on the pitch has been successful, he has scored eight goals in over 30 appearances this season, and won the Turkish Cup in 2011.
The club is in financial difficulty after being found guilty of tax irregularities and face a large fine and a ban on signing new players, while many of their current stars are reported to have not been paid.
Known as 'El Animal', Fernandes has requested the club terminate the final year of his contract, to allow him to move on, find a new club, and save the club money on his wage bill.
Manny spent a short time on loan with Portsmouth, and two spells with Everton, where he scored a memorable goal against Manchester United, but we unable to afford his signature, and he signed for Valencia for £12 million.
He has already proved capable of playing in the Premier League, and if he is released from his contract, an ongoing situation, he would be a bargain.
Moyesy is on alert and would be delighted to snap him up at last but will face stiff competition with Manure said to be interested.
Fernandes' contract situation is expected to be decided in the coming fortnight.
