“117 players” – Every free agent available as Premiership departures announced

Presented here is a compilation of released English Premiership players who are presently in search of new clubs. Additionally, their positions and home countries are provided.

Regrettably, due to three clubs facing financial troubles this season, including the recent case of London Irish, some of these players might be compelled to retire prematurely.

Given the reduced salary cap, most Premiership clubs find themselves with limited budgetary resources, prompting them to carefully manage their finances in line with the new constraints.
