    The squad obviously needs major surgery and we have to clear some dead wood to make room for the kind of players Ralph wants to bring in.
    Can't see there being a knock down fee for Hoedt or Boufal if Celta are relegated (they are now in the bottom 3). A fee for Guido, optimistic. Clasie and Cedric maybe.

    Yeah, any future deals for these guys looks bleak.

    I think we'd let Clasie leave for a nominal fee, but whether Feyenoord could get anywhere close to what he's on here, would be questionable.

    Biggest problem is we still likely have large sums to pay on the Carrillo / Boufal / Hoedt deals.

    What I'd like to see in the summer.
    1. Bring back boufal. Think it was a mistake to loan him out this season. Would be good to have someonee else with pace and ability to beat a man, if redmond can turn it around I see no reason boufal couldn't do the same.. could be like a new signing, deserves a fair chance under Ralph..
    2 Augustin. Looks so pacy and with the technique to back it up, Ralph knows him well and he's not getting the game time at Leipzig.should be ideal signing for us but if we can't get him a striker should be priority anyway.
    3 another cb. I don't think the 3 of bednarek yosh and vest are doing too badly, but if the reason Ralph thinks we need three at the back is because of lack of quality.. then we should probably try to get another decent cb.

    Actually think these 3 additions could turn us around quite a lot we are looking fine in midfield and wing back positions are looking ok too bar maybe cover for valery.. but signing another one could block his progress.

    Game of opinions but those who are gagging for the return of Boufal are wrong IMO.

    Best we can do is get £10m for him and move on woth players who actually suit the PL and RH style.

    Boufal is just a mote skillful Elyounoussi. He isn't what RH wants. No real pace, not the best off the ball.

    It's difficult to say right now, seeing as we're still very much in a relegation battle, so what we need depends on what league we're in.

    If we're in the Prem:

    Keeping Hasenhuttl is key.

    Largely we just need a bit of quality, because despite being in a relegation battle, we actually have a decent core of players playing well under Hasenhuttl. Let's say we bring in Maehle, Adams and Augustin, that's pretty much all we need if we can keep the players we want to keep. You could argue we'd also need a centre back but I'd say that's dependant on whether Ralph feels Stephens is up to the job or not, plus whether Alfie Jones will ever make the step up.

    Outs: Cedric, Hoedt, Clasie, Boufal, Austin, Long, Forster, Carillo (if we can, or loans to free up wages), also possibly one or two youngsters like Reed, McQueen and Gallagher if they don't have futures here. I doubt there'd be many takers for Moi though...

    So our squad would look like:

    GK: McCarthy, Gunn, Lewis

    RB: Maehle, Valery

    LB: Bertrand, Targett

    CB: Vestergaard, Bednarek, Yoshida, Stephens, Jones

    CM: Romeu, Hojbjerg, Lemina, JWP, Slattery

    AM: Armstrong, Redmond, Elyounoussi, Augustien, Sims

    Str: Ings, Adams, Obafemi.

    (plus youngsters, not sure who doesn't count towards the squad of 25, I believe Obafemi doesn't so may room for one more senior signing, either a centre back or another winger/AM)

    I still think 7th is the best we can hope for, the top 6 are, well, the top 6 and it will take any side some going to break into that. The squad above should be enough to fight for 7th IMO.

    If we go down? Woof, doesn't bear thinking about, but at least Hasenhuttl has given experience to Johnson, Ramsey, Slattery and obviously Obafemi so we still have the makings of a decent young side.

    Unless McCarthy regains the first team spot I'd be surprised if he'll look to remain with us.

    Burnley will probably sign him - they love stockpiling England keepers.

    I'm not so sure I agree. He's no slouch and he is technically gifted. He didn't look the part under Pellegrino, but neither did Redmond, and he is thriving now under Ralph.

    I would like to see if he can have the same effect on Boufal, because if he can then we would have some player on our hands, like a new signing with no fee.

    Completely agree with this

    Boufal is not a quick, direct player.

    Someone like Lookman (that type of profile) suits RH game far more.

    Boufal will come back because Celta won't want to sign him, which is telling in itself.

    I expect he will be loaned out again.

    Assuming we stay up, it's imperative Ralph H stays.

    Following that, I'm more than happy to let him decide what happens to Boufal.

    Unquestionable talent. Questionable attitude.

    He certainly looked quick and direct when he dribbled round 4 West Brom players from the half way line to score last season. Maybe he wasn’t quick and direct but that’s wasn’t how sideways, possession at all cost, Pellegrino wanted him to play. There is definitely a player in there, but he also appears a bit of a bellend too, so let’s see if Hasenhuttl can and wants to work with him. If the can then he could save us a fortune.

    Without really wanting to highlight flaws with redmond, who has been good this season, if you actually look at his stats 3 goals and two assists this season in 30 prem games, and that was pretty much all starts and being our main creative player.. I find it hard to believe that boufal wouldn't be capable of the same given a 30 game run, anyway he is a million times better then elyounoussi so is worth bringing him back even if only to push el down the pecking order and strengthen options

    Inclined to agree. Not convinced he will cut it, but Put it this way, I'd certainly rather an on form boufal than spending another 15 million on another mo ely. I trust Ralph, and by the time the next window shuts he'll have had time in pre and early season to assess whether he's worth persisting with, and will then action accordingly. Whichever Ralph chooses is fine with me(as if that matters!)

    Don't think we'll be spending a fortune this summer, so if we have one less purchase to make (and one less high wage earner to sell at a loss) I'd see that as a good thing.

    Southampton ‘came close’ to signing player in January, and are a ‘prominent suitor’ for summer

    Real Sociedad have their eye on François Kamano, report their local source Noticias de Gipuzkoa, but there are several problems in the way of them signing the Bordeaux player, including Southampton.

    The 22 year old is flexible in attack and has scored nine goals so far this season, it’s claimed the French club would be looking at €15-20m for the player.

    That would be the first hurdle to jump.

    Then there’s Atletico Madrid, who have been watching him this season. On top of that, it’s claimed that both Southampton and AS Monaco ‘came close’ to signing the player in the January window, and both are ‘prominent suitors’ for the summer market.

    Southampton were linked with a winter move as early as November, but Bordeaux were adamant their player wouldn’t be leaving the club midway through the season.

    Watford were strongly linked in January, with it being claimed they were in talks over a €16m transfer.

    Would like us to look at Rebic if we are still in the PL.

    Jarrod Bowen With another couple of goals in the first half today for Hull.

    Definitely worth looking at.

    Mitrovic and Sessignon wouldn’t be a bad start

    Yes I am aware but now he is a Bournemouth player who he can't get a game to the point of being loaned out to villa. I was hoping we would aim a little higher in the summer...

    He is a very good player. But not a pressing player. I think we will look for someone with more mobility.

    He would fit the pressing game perfectly

    Don't think Mitrovic fits the system, but he's better than our strikers that's for sure.

    Sessegnon will still go somewhere better even though he hasn't had a huge impact.

    I don't think we need a big overhaul, we've been half decent since Ralph took over. RB, CB, winger and striker. 4 good signings, move on Austin, Long, Boufal, Carillo, Elyounoussi, maybe even Lemina. If Forster can't find a club I'd use him as back up and sell McCarthy. Just don't rate him that highly and not convinced Ralph does either.

    Back up should come from the academy, not poor signings. Johnson, Ramsey, Barnes, Gallagher, Sims, Slattery, Valery should all be involved. Saves a fortune and only takes a couple of them to really step up to provide a real boost.

    Despite our struggles, I'd want Gunn, Vesterguard, Bednarek, Hojbjerg, JWP, Redmond all starting next season in the team really.
