Since I can remember on FM, you can sign players on pre-contract in January but I don't seem to have this option on FM 13, i have to wait till 31st May - 1 month before contract ends???
Now I have racked my brains and perhaps I have missed this clause in recent years due to managing mainly in Scotland or in Europe (not English League) currently at Gateshead in L2 but I can only sign European based players in January. If i want UK based players I must wait till 31st May???
Any help / advice?
