Even though the transfer window has closed, players without clubs can still be signed and added to squads throughout the Autumn.
One of many free agents looking for their next club is Karl Henry, and Sky Sports’ Rob Dorsett has reported that the 34-year-old midfielder is currently training with West Brom as he looks to secure a contract.

Henry began his career with Stoke but made a name for himself with Baggies rivals Wolves during a seven-year spell with the Midlands club where he made 271 appearances for the club.
Naturally a holding midfielder, Henry has spent the last four years with QPR but is now searching for his next move and is training with West Brom for the time being.
It’s unknown whether the Baggies will look to sign Henry given their options in defensive midfield, but Tony Pulis wouldn’t have brought the player in to train with the first-team if he wasn’t intrigued by what he can offer at this stage of his career.
Henry has made 127 Premier League appearances in his career and would offer experience and cover in midfield, but the Baggies aren’t exactly in need of an additional body in that area, so we’ll see where this one goes.
