The 10 Scottish Premiership players still looking for a new club

Our updated list of those in the top flight who haven't secured a club for 2013/14.

Ten players who were with Scottish Premier League clubs in the 2012/13 are still seeking employment ahead of the new campaign.

STV have tracked since December those whose contracts were coming to an end in the summer, with an initial list of 143 dropping to 123 and now to 10 looking for a new team.

Some clubs are still trying to tie down players on new deals, in particular Dundee who had the majority of their squad on one-year contracts as they made a fleeting appearance in the Scottish Premier League.

Players who played integral parts in their respective club's season have already been snapped up, such as Paul Lawson, Nicky Law and Darren Randolph, but there are still bargains to be had.

Based on STV's Power Rankings system, some of the best attacking players in the division this year are still out of contract.

Some on our list are out of contract but, because they are aged 23 or under, could potentially require compensation to be paid to their current clubs by any future employer. We have flagged up these players with an star next to their names.

For clubs to have a claim for training compensation, they must have offered new contracts to the players on similar or better terms no later than 90 days prior to the expiration of their previous deals.
