It’s four weeks and counting until the summer transfer window opens - and teams up and down the land are looking to nail down some early bargains.
Brentford face an exciting summer under the management of new boss Marinus Dijkhuizen and the club’s revised purchasing strategy.
Fulham manager Kit Symons has a big job on his hands at Craven Cottage to turn things around in west London after a poor campaign in 2014-15.
QPR , having been relegated from the Premier League, face a rebuilding job and have already been busy in the market.
But you don’t have to spend tonnes of cash on transfer fees to pick up quality players.
The three clubs can do that by picking up some established Championship performers, 160 of whom will be out of contract at the end of the month.
Chris Ramsey, Symons and Dijkhuizen will no doubt be sifting through them. Here’s their options.
