Relegated players who are way too good for the Championship

premier league transfer news

Shopping in the Championship could be a wise move…

An awful lot of really talented players got relegated this season, such is the nature of the Premier League these days.

We’ve taken a look at just some of the players that are way too good to be playing in the Championship, and who could well be on the move sooner rather than later.

Premier League transfers

Nathan Collins

The Irishman had a poor final game of the season, but even at that he showed his ballplaying skills and got himself a lovely assist.

He has shown that he is a really strong defender, and at just 21 years of age, there will be a number of teams in for him.

Maxwell Cornet

Another fine Burnley player who showed his qualities throughout the season. He was unlucky to be relegated, and it’s difficult to imagine him playing in the Championship.

Teemu Pukki

Pukki is no spring chicken at 32 years of age, but he is extremely capable of doing the hardest thing in football – putting the ball in the back of the net.

He scored 11 league goals this season, in a very poor Norwich team. If a Premier League club fancies a backup striker, Pukki is the man to go for.

Nick Pope

Undeniably one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League. The majority of teams in the league would be better for having Pope in their team. The question is who will get the deal done.

Joao Pedro

At just 20 years of age, Pedro showed that he has a lot of talent that could be utilised by a top manager. Perhaps a side like Southampton or Everton would take a chance on him.

Dwight McNeil 

McNeil could be a great signing for even some of the PL’s biggest clubs. He can play in a number of positions, has a beautiful delivery, and a good work ethic.

Perhaps he could be a wing-back option for Antonio Conte at Spurs.

Emmanuel Dennis

10 Premier League goals is not to be sneezed at by any means. He could stay in the Championship and likely bring Watford back up, or a PL team could take a gamble on him.
