Think Darlow has another year on his contract, but can see BigGeordieDave says him being sold come the summer.

Is Woodman good enough to be number 2 for us next season? Will he want to be is more the question I'd have.

Woodman has done very well at Swansea and I know from contacts from there they've expressed an interest in taking him again next season, again this depends on what Woodman himself wants to do.

I think best case scenario is Darlow staying for another year and Woodman going out on loan again next season getting another year under his belt be this with Swansea in Championship though I'd like to see him tested at PL level best case would be Swansea getting promoted via playoffs as I doubt he'd get or maybe Leeds would interested I believe they enquired about him before.
I'm doubtful any team entering or already in the PL would want to go into the season with an on loan young keeper as their first choice. Keepers are too affordable to not make a bigger investment in the position. Or at least clubs will likely be too risk-adverse to take that leap with a player they're not even investing in the future with.
I actually had a line in there I thought that I doubt any other PL club would be interested but I appear to have taken out the last part during a rewrite.

In terms of if PL clubs would risk it.

As other posters call out Dean Henderson stayed with Sheffield Utd, hence why I said best case scenario would be Swansea coming up via the playoffs.

I mentioned Leeds too as I know they were interested in him last January though I doubt they would move for him if promoted.
<ayo>
I'll Hazard a guess

Almiron's agent apparently. Stirring things up.

Yep, Miggy seems happy so agents trying to get themselves more money again. They really are greedy scum most of the time.

I just wish this takeover would go through so we can tie our best players down.

With Ashley still here Im always nervous the likes of Saint Max and Alimron will get sold.

Yep.

If we could add a decent striker then ASM / New Striker / Miggy is an excellent front 3.

Angel Gomes has left Man Utd and seems it was due to lack of playing opportunity.

I'd snap him up.

<notbad>

Be worth a look at. He's attacking midfielder right? Be good backup to asm/almiron who can't play every game. Or contest for the right side ahead of Atsu. Not sure which side he tends to play on?

Would have to pay compensation for him but seems like a decent prospect.

I'd feel a little more confident, but if you look around Europe it doesn't matter how big and rich a club you are, the stars still do the rounds as it fuels more money and they get bored.

Can we just cut Lazaar loose already? Can't even get a start for a Serie B side <laugh>

From NUFC.com:

The Serie B strugglers were able to call on Lazaar for the first time since the season restarted as they lost 0-1 at home to Ascoli on Friday.

He appeared from the bench on 81 minutes.
