Clubs across the EFL will already be assessing potential targets for the 2021/22 campaign, while monitoring players who are nearing the end of their current contracts.
Most players’ futures are likely to be decided at the end of the season – when it is known what divisions their clubs will be competing in.
Others look set to depart, with a total of 168 players set to see their current deals lapse in the coming months.
There are plenty of talented players on that list too, including many who are fighting for Championship promotion with their current clubs, as well as players with international caps.
We’ve put together a starting XI of players who will be out of contract this summer after looking at every position.

9. LW: Isaac Mbenza (Huddersfield)
It's been a difficult season for Huddersfield, yet Mbenza's performances have stood out. The 24-year-old can play on either flank, run at defenders and is a threat from free-kicks.

10. CAM: Mario Vrancic (Norwich)
Has dropped out of Norwich's starting XI in recent weeks, but the 31-year-old has still been a key player in the Canaries' promotion-winning campaign. The Bosnian has often operated in the No 10 position where he can find pockets of space in the final third.

11. ST: Andre Ayew (Swansea)
A player who has stood out in the Championship for the last two seasons. The forward has netted 15 league goals for the Swans this campaign.
