Carlos Corberan says that Huddersfield Town may consider bringing in free-agents with the transfer window now closed.
It was a mixed transfer window for the Terriers who brought in five new players over the course of the summer, with Danny Ward, Pipa, Naby Sarr, Joel Pereira and Carel Eiting joining the club.
The club were dealt with a few blows, though, with key players Terence Kongolo, Steve Mounie and Karlan Grant leaving the John Smith’s Stadium.

Town also missed out on the signing of Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons in the dying embers of the transfer window, with paperwork being submitted two minutes after Friday’s 5pm deadline.
Corberan, though, will consider bringing in free-agents, with the Spaniard understanding the hectic schedule of the Championship and the depth he will need in his squad.
Via Yorkshire Live, Corberan said: “Always we need to be focused about the market, in the free-agent players and of course injuries can happen.
“Sometimes you can have an injury that makes a movement or sometimes just the need is there and you need to make a movement.
“This was a special market for everyone and now some of the players are going to be free and some of the players who are free will be in good condition.
“So we need to be focused on having a couple of players in each position because this year the Championship is totally different because we are going to have more games in less time, and on top of the normal injuries you have to manage the covid situation.
“The more games, less time, injuries make it that we need to be always working in the market too.”
Town are no strangers to bringing in free-agents, having brought in Fraizer Campbell and Danny Simpson on free transfers last term.
There are plenty of talented players out there who are without clubs and could be great signings for Town.
There’s always an element of risk when bringing in free-agents as you wonder why it has took them so long to find new clubs.
But Corberan is a good coach, and the club wouldn’t bring in a player if they didn’t see them fitting into their plans.
