egan (in my opinion)is far to good not to be playing in the premiership next year.

The thinking among Sheffield United supporters seems to be that Egan has done enough in the last two seasons to get a premier league move in the summer. Hopefully they're right, he deserves to be playing at that level. I think he's probably a £20m plus premier league centre back in the right team, probably somewhere around mid table, it's just whether his profile is high enough for him to get the move.

Stevens you'd imagine will go down with Sheffield United, he hasn't looked good enough this season.


Agree with all of that but I would say Egan would go for around something closer to £10m.

Don't think Egan will get a move.

Because of where Sheffield United have ended up £10m would probably be about right this summer. I do think he's a potential bargain for someone at that kind of price though.

He was linked with Everton quite heavily last summer. It would be criminal if he didn’t get a PL move in the summer Irish or not. Class player and arguably Sheffield Utds best. Himself O’Connell and Berge the top 3. 

Just hope he gets a move. Generally centre backs teams cry out for them so hopefully that’s the case and Egan gets a move.

Likewise. Fingers crossed I'm wrong

I don't think Sheffield's record this season is going to attract a lot of buyers. O'Connell's injury killed them effectively. The gap between the top two divisions is so broad at the moment though if he stays on you can see them getting promoted again next season so his days as a Premier league player are not over either way. Not sure Stevens will make it back though

Looking at all the clubs who look like staying up, I dont really see them forking out 10m to buy him. Same for promoted sides.  Id be more surprised (pleasantly)

Everton certainly wanted him but Chris Wilder got him to sign a long term contract on the back of the Blades' achievements last year. If he doesn't get a move, chances are good for promotion anyway on the yo-yo. Norwich are already straight back up, Watford almost sure to join them and Bournemouth in the mix to make it all three of the relegated clubs bouncing back. Meanwhile Fulham and West Brom, promoted last season, look like going straight back down.

Egan has definitely done to enough to earn another Premier League move. Everton wanted him last Summer and I can see them coming back in for him again. Spurs are a bit of a mess defensively and I think Egan would have the right profile to go there and be a big player for them as he can both tackle and pass. Even if Spurs didn't go for him, the likes of Burnley would be an ok last resort. Tarkovski is out of contract there and they will need to bring someone in. I don't have too many concerns about Egan remaining in the Premier League.

Stevens is a trickier one. He was one of the top left wing backs last season, but this year it hasn't worked out for him too well. He has been dropped into central defence at times to cover injuries, I think that hasn't helped him. I wonder would Enda consider going abroad to Italy, where a back three is more common, and the slower pace would suit? Inter Milan play with a back three, and I think he would slot in as a LWB? Ashley Young is a lot older than Stevens and he is doing the business there. Lazio and Roma would be two other good options for Stevens, both play systems he would be comfortable in. Stevens is only 30, so has a good 3-4 years left in him at a high level you'd feel.

Read an article on The Athletic this morning claiming that Sheffield United will need to generate 40m in player sales before they make any signings, they singled out Berge, Egan and Basham as players who are likely to have interest in the PL. Obviously I would like to see him stay in the Premier League but staying on in the Championship isn't a disaster either.

Agree on Stevens, can't see him getting a move back up again, but again no harm in him playing at the top end of the championship every week.

I’d imagine it will be a fairly quiet summer transfer wise for all but the big CL clubs given the loss of earnings all round due to Covid. I’d be surprised if he gets a move given his contract situation. I hope I’m wrong.

I think Egan is the only irish player that might trade upwards in terms of possible summer moves.

If any other player moves it'll probably be dropping down a league

In terms of the Premier League the only other potential upward moves I could see would be if the rumours about Collins or Knight from January came to anything during the summer. Idah and Omobamidele going up with Norwich but might be loaned out for the year.

O'Shea, Robinson, McGoldrick and Stevens all likely to go down with their clubs. Brady out of contract I think as things stand and might move to the championship. Hourihane and Long might also make permanent moves down a league, both out of favour at their current clubs. Obafemi another possibility to drop down and Jimmy Dunne considering dropping a division also in search of first team football. Then there are rumours of James McCarthy leaving Palace, not sure if there's a premier league move for him given his injury record. And Duffy might be moved on from Brighton, although he might want to see out his contract, understandable as it may be the last big one he gets.

Who does that leave really - Hendrick and Clark at Newcastle, Coleman and Doherty, Connolly, Egan if he gets a move and a few squad players like Smallbone, Randolph, Kelleher, Kevin Long and a couple more who hardly ever play.

Depressing stuff really but that's where we are for now.

Did I overhear the commentator saying last night was only the second time Egan was on the winning side for Ireland?
