Matt Upson is one of a raft of players let go this summer by their respective Premier League clubs.
It's that time of the year, when managers are looking to shed high-earners, move on any lingering deadwood, or simply release youngsters who've not quite made the grade.
Albion have had recent success in the free transfer market, with Tomasz Kuszczak, David Lopez, Bruno Saltor and, going back a couple of years further, Liam Bridcutt all drafted in following their release from top flight clubs.
Bridcutt is a prime example of unearthing gems who simply require regular playing time and little more nurturing to fulfill their true potential.
In the summer of 2010, the ex-Chelsea youth teamer was scrambling around for a contract following trials with Wycombe Wanderers and Crystal Palace, before eventually landing a short team deal with the Albion.
The rest is history, as they say, with the 24-year-old going on to achieve promotion in 2010-11 and eventually establishing himself as one of top young players outside the Premier League, voted the Seagulls' Player of the Year for two years running.
Whilst that will undoubtedly be a route for the club to go down, with stable finances becoming of increasing importance ahead of the FFP ruling - Matt Upson's situation is a little different.
The former England defender became a free agent last week after new Stoke boss Mark Hughes decided not to offer a him a new deal - inevitably alerting the top Championship clubs to his availability.
Much like Wayne Bridge, 34-year-old Upson put himself back in the shop window after an impressive loan spell at the Amex last term. Bridge, of course, yesterday opted to join Nigel Adkins' Reading.
Will it be a similar case with Upson, as Championship rivals look to take advantage of the current managerial mess at the Albion by nipping in before they're able to get moving on the transfer front?
