Sigurdsson won't be here.

Worse case scenario we loan him out an subsidise his wages.

I would love your confidence.

As Iíve said before - the bigger the fee, the more likely payments to the selling club are spread across the span of the playerís contract, so itís conceivable we still owe them 2/5 of the fee, which is £18m...

With the exception of Digne and Ricky id sale any of them. I think Holgate has looked better this season but I think the praise is way over the top, it's like we've got someone like Van Dijk whereas in all honesty he's still nearer Lovren. I like the look of Kean and Gordon so would keep them too.

Tbf it doesn't usually work out so neatly like that. If the fee was 45m, it's very likely that at least 30m of it was up front, with the remaining 15 spread out. Also, selling teams rarely allow the remaining amount to be spread out over the life of the contract. More likely is that it's over the first 2-3 years at most.

I'd be very, very surprised if we owed any more than 5m left on Gylfi's contract.

Don't think it's that unusual for fees to be spread equally over the length of contract. Fellaini was just one example.

Dream Sig Scenario is that Swansea get promoted and go for him as their Marquee summer signing. Would probably be a good move for all parties

It certainly could be, I have no proof otherwise. I was simply under the impression it didn't work that way from what I've read on the topic.

Yeah that's a bit of a stumbling block too.

I have tried to be realistic with my selection below. I want to see the vast majority of the squad remain in place, whilst completely revamping the problem area, midfield. Nearly every player in that midfield is expendable. However, I have chosen to keep:

- Gomes - Best ball player we have, even if he is slow and inconsistent since his injury
- Iwobi - Still yet to have a long run in the team and is young with potential to grow
- Walcott - Inconsistent, but still produces assists and goals, and partners well with Coleman. The best winger of a bad bunch.

Of the ones that can go, I want Davies gone this summer more than any other player. He is not PL quality, and doesn't even offer goals/set piece quality that Siggy does. In saying that, Siggy also needs to go for offering little to nothing in open play. Delph is too rash, and Bernard just seems to slip all the time, lose possession and play poor passes. It could be an opportunity for Dowell next season, but I haven't seen enough from him to give any real opinion.

KEEP:

Holgate, Digne, Richarlison, Keane, Mina, Gordon, Branthwaite, Coleman, Gomes, Iwobi, DCL, Pickford, Kean, Kenny, Walcott

BIN/SELL AT RIGHT PRICE

Delph, Bernard, Dowell, Sigurdsson

BURN/PLZ GO NOW

Davies, Tosun, Besic, Bolasie, Sandro, Lossl, Stekelenberg, Virginia


Edit - Oh and Gbamin - goodness only knows what player will turn up!

I think we're kinda stuck with most of these players until the contracts run down. I'd be surprised to see Sigurdsson leave as it stands, but you never know. This situation should underline for those at the top why it's not a great idea for us as a club to buy players who are likely on their last big contract.

While I'd want to keep a handful or so of this current squad, it's a pretty short list that I'd be upset if they left.
