There have been a number of players out on loan this season, and with most of them coming back for pre-season training, Garry Monk will have the opportunity to assess them.

At the moment the manager hasn’t had an opportunity to run the rule over the likes of Diego Fabbrini, Cheick Keita, Robert Tesche, Viv Solomon-Otabor and Andrew Shinnie.

While fans on Twiter believe that Viv and Keita could contend for first-team places next season, they think the rest will be sold:


Viv has done pretty well out on loan at Blackpool in League One this season, and I fully expect him to be at least a squad player next season to provide cover on the wings. Especially if we keep playing 4-4-2, we will need to have good depth in wide positions.

As for the others, most will likely be let go, although Keita could be an option that Monk will look at. At 21 years of age, he can certainly develop his game, and he has played the last few matches of the season for Bologna in Serie A. He could be a suitable alternative at left back.
