The 139 Championship players set to be out of contract this summer

Quick Reads

Big names from Aston Villa, Leeds United, Nottingham Forest and Sunderland are among the Championship players who are currently set to leave their clubs in the summer when their contract expires.

There are a total of 140 players who are soon to be out of contract across the 24 clubs in the English second tier, including three ex-England internationals in Gabby Agbonlahor, John Terry and Michael Dawson.

There’s plenty of time for some of these to be tied down to new deals, of course, but this should give you an idea of who might be on the move when the summer rolls around.

Note: Players currently out on loan at other clubs have not been included. Information according to Transfermarkt.
