Probably the only former player that would interest me would be Hanley as he'd be a good partner with Lenihan. I think Norwich would be open to him leaving with their promotion to the Premier League. But wages would probably be an issue.

Plenty of players out of contract that would be handy in our squad. Also depending on how their clubs get on in the playoffs.

I would love Marcus Maddison. Another season of assists assists assists. Also Joe Aribo would be fantastic. Although his midfield partner Fosu was meant to be better a few years back and is also going to be out of contract.

Patrick Bauer
Frank fielding
Josh Morris
Graham Carey

More difficult players to get free

Nick Powell
Gary Hooper
David Mcgoldrich
Lee Gregory

Would love to get a few of these in free and then compliment with some transfer fee players to really get the fans going.

Hope the names are still up to date.

Very worrying to see rumours linking us with Joe Hart regardless of the Burnley connection he’s a goalkeeper who I’ve never thought is that good, very error prone and only getting worse.

Would also feel like a step away from how we’ve been recruiting players under Mowbray.

Some guttersnipe will have read it on here when it was mentioned and extrapolated wildly

He’s a very good keeper. Appreciate that he started to make a few errors in the last couple of months but overall given his age he is a very promising prospect. I also think some of the errors weren’t helped by a nervy defence who also weren’t capable of dealing with crosses into the box.

After watching Bauer closely during the playoff semi he didn’t look great in the air. Got beat in the air for one of the goals. Then beat again with Don going close with another header. Mind you he became a Dad hours before KO. He is 6ft3 so will see how he gets on in the final against Wyke.

I'm going to hedge my bets on being a new dad really did in Bauer that night.

Rovers are saying they haven't entered into formal discussions with Brentford but what would be the usual is a statement of not for sale which has not happened. The next few days will be interesting.

Though saying not for sale is always a joke anyway, so perhaps they're just approaching it sensibly....

Really hope this amounts to nothing, Brentford sniffing around as they're expecting to lose Bentley and therefore view Raya as a replacement first choice keeper. Mowbray also confirming he expects us to sign another goalkeeper I would sincerely hope he's given Raya full assurance that he'd be first choice next season.

I'm genuinely concerned we will end up with Joe Hart.
