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.

  • Joshua Da Silva because he can play on ether wing Inside forward ACM CM DLP (very versatile) he is young and is only going to get better. He would be our player and would have a large resale value. He is more than good enough for the championship.

  • I’d question whether we could afford any of named players Can’t pay any fees and would have to on no more than £10k as some money would have to left for bonuses agent fees

    • We can pay a fee but any fee must be within agreed amounts. We have paid a fee on all our loans so far 10k per week is not to bad not so long back we had a cap of 5k per week on wages.
