The EFL ruling last month stated that we could only sign an additional five players before August 31st. With four players having already been recruited, it means we have just one more space that can be filled.

With Cheikh N’Doye’s loan exit to Angers, a central midfielder would be my best guess and fans on Twitter agree that is the likeliest area that will be bolstered.

Here are some of the names that fans have been suggesting:

There were some less serious suggestions as well:

I think Hoolahan is the one that would stand out simply because he’s available on a free, and could provide that much needed creative spark in the centre of midfield.

N’Doye and Grounds’ departures would have freed up some of the wage budget too, but the Irish international is now 36 and you do question whether he’s still capable of playing at this level.

Still, we can’t be too choosy, and the loan fees required for the likes of Patrick Roberts would likely be too much. Do you have your own suggestions? Let me know in the comments.
