Players who are transfer-listed are generally available at a knock down price and are easier to sign.

When approaching to sign a player on a free-transfer who is under the age of 24, the buying club will have to pay the selling club compensation.

Signing a player with a massive reputation can provide a commercial windfall through shirt sales.

A player may be more willing to sign for a club if they are one of his favourite teams.

If you offer an injured player to clubs, they are less likely to show interest until the player is over his injury.

A club may have more luck in signing a player if they are one of his favoured clubs.

Praising another manager in the media and building friendships with other managers may help your chances of having a transfer bid accepted for one of their players.

Making enemies with other managers by openly criticisng them may damage your chances of having a transfer bid accepted for one of their players.

When viewing a player profile for a player at another club, you can declare your interest in him by selecting 'Player Interaction' from the actions menu.

Should you wish to sign a player who is also interested in joining your club, you can sometimes unsettle him by 'declaring interest', which can make it easier to sign him in the long run.

Be careful when declaring interest in a player as you can unsettle those at your club who play in the same position.

When sending a player out on loan, with the 'Can be recalled' clause active, a club can recall the player at 24 hours' notice.

When sending a player out on a loan which involves a fee, the club cannot recall the player for the duration of the loan.

When sending a player out on loan, a club can prevent him from becoming cup-tied by ensuring the 'Can play in cup matches' clause is not active.

When trying to sign a player from another club who is on a long-term contract, be prepared that you may have to pay more than his estimated value to land him.

To avoid losing your players to other clubs on free transfers, you should look to renew contracts for those who are in the final year of their deal.
