      I believe once your contract has been (mutually?) terminated, you become free and can sign with any club at any time.

      • @Dr Drey can you confirm this, or shed more light on it?

        • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

          DiMastta is correct. But that “any time” caveat is what i cant confirm. I know most leagues have a deadline for registration of players signed on free transfers….I think October or thereabout for those signed after summer window and March ending or thereabout for those signed after the winter window.
          But once your contract is terminated, you become as free as a bird to fly anywhere yuo wish to.
