Oshea and Robinson now relegated to the championship with Egan and Stevens.

I can only see Egan potentially getting a summer move but I suspect he'll stay where he is.

Difficult to predict what will happen to molumby as his loan move at Preston has been a waste of time.

Parrott hasn't done enough to suggest a better move than ipswich and would do well to stay there.

Idah and Connolly Would benefit from loan moves to the championship 

A lot of players need loans next season, Coventry, Bazunu, Travers, kilkenny and a good few more

This season was a bit of a free hit for O'Shea and to be fair to him he played a lot more than most of us would have expected him to at the start of the season.

Next season in a weaker division you'd hope he will be able to step up and be one of the leaders in the team, firstly he needs to nail down a starting spot at centre back, he got shifted about the defence a lot this season and it's clear he is a natural centre back, not a full back.

It might take a year or two but I expect we'll see him back in the Premier League before too long, there aren't too many 22 year old centre backs of his ability and experience in England.

If he were English, I think there would be a small queue of clubs in for him. He would definitely fit in at Norwich but maybe to the detriment of Omobamidele. He would actually be an ideal signing for Brighton with his ability to play across the back three and his passing. 

I'm very relaxed about that though. I would much rather see Egan get a move back up. With regards to O'Shea, a full season starting centre back in the Championship should see him get plenty games, be fairly comfortable and mark himself out as a very good prospect at 23 this time next year.

This, exactly.

I really hope that he gets a move this Summer. Ideally he goes to another Premier League team, but it wouldn't be bad if he went to a decent footballing team like Swansea or Bournemouth. He would be very comfortable in a good team in Europe too I feel. Staying at West Brom and playing second fiddle to Ajayi (who is a very poor footballer) is not what we want to see.

O'Shea would be a better signing than Egan for a good few Premier League teams.

Hmm not sure about that, both Egan and oshea played in relegated teams but I feel Egan was a key player in any chances of survival, whereas oshea was dropped on a few occasions. 

I feel that if a premier league team signed Egan it would be so that he can make them a better defensive team now but a team that signed oshea might see him as 'a good investment for the future' and have him sit on the bench for a while.

That's pretty much it. If you're a low to mid rank premier league team looking for a decent centre back to build your defence around next season you buy Egan. If you're wanting more of a long term investment you buy O'Shea.

Arguably if you're looking for both you buy Collins.

I think Egan signed a five year contract earlier this season so the club are unlikely to want to sell. He may well fancy Sheffield Utd to yo-yo back up like Norwich and Waford ( and possibly Bournemouth as well ) have done. A fit Jack O'Connell would greatly help their chances. West Brom will be amongst the favourites to get back up so O'Shea and Robinson may not have to move. Nathan Collins should get plenty of first team football if he stays with Stoke though bigger clubs will be interested once he's back fit.

I’d be a bit disappointed if Egan doesn’t get a move in the summer. He’s more then good enough and it’s not like the English League is overloaded with competent centre backs that clubs won’t be looking for them. To use the dreaded phrase if he was English he would be linked with all and sundry. 

O’Shea who knows you could do a lot worse then him. He may stay at West Brom that wouldn’t be a disaster. Ajayi and Bartley have got the nod in the last game but West Brom were dreadful the other night so O’Shea again could easily come back in. 

Collins has been linked with Liverpool recently now on top of Man Utd which as a United fan is pretty concrete from what I hear. Burnley also interested. He will leave next summer if not this summer once he keeps his stuff up. Thing is Harry Souttar will be touted also and will Stoke sell both? If they make the decision to sell one they’d want crazy money for the other fella if selling.
