Signs new 3 year deal.

Quite a long contract for a 19 year old on the very fringe of the first team. Does this lend weight to my theory that one of Eastwood or Steele will be leaving in the summer?

Well it certainly isn't looking good for Jake Kean...

I can see Raya going on loan to a half decent club where he might get some proper competitive game time, and Steele / Eastwood both hovering around between starting XI and the subs bench until we decide which one to get rid of in January or this time next year. Can't see Steele leaving anytime soon, Bowyer's only just signed him. Kean and Robbo will be released.

Yeah, good point. I keep forgetting about Jake Kean. I'm not sure why Robbo didn't walk before now when it became obvious he was never going to play again. I'm sure he could have negotiated his way out of his contract and found another club easily.

Get rid of Kean and Robbo this summer, have Steele 1st choice and Eastwood on the bench for league matches. Play Raya in the cup games. Then next season sell or release Eastwood and move Raya to the sub keeper, season after that move him to first choice. Gentle integration to first team football is the best option in my book.

Signs a new three and a half year deal. I can’t believe he’s only 22. Fantastic prospect.

Great news, if he can just improve his goal kicks we've got a very good keeper!
