Every EFL retained list: Players Portsmouth can sign for free, including West Brom, Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday stars - gallery

A look at the players Portsmouth can sign for free from throughout the EFL as retained lists are confirmed.

Portsmouth’s preparations for their first season back in the Championship will have already begun. While the players are still a few weeks away from pre-season, the higherups and John Mousinho will already be shortlisting a number of players as the club look to ensure the squad is Championship-ready.

As clubs like Portsmouth already know, when there is not an big budget to call upon, smart moves must be made through free and loan signings. That makes this time of year crucial, with clubs confirming their retained lists following the conclusion of the season, while every club finds out who they can potentially sign on free transfers. With that in mind, we have rounded up all the retained lists from throughout the EFL to find out who is available.
