Bristol Rovers fans have another exciting summer in store with loads of transfer business to be expected, given the possible comings and goings.
The Gas have several players out of contract and already some players have been told what they're doing. Glenn Whelan and Paul Coutts' time as players is up but they're sticking around the place to remain as coaches. Harry Anderson is another player that has been told that he's free to come back to train, but that after an impasse in negotiations, he could be free to leave should a team offer him what he desires.
Five loan players are also set to return to their Premier League and Championship parent clubs, and there is no guarantee they return. Jarell Quansah's just signed a new deal with Liverpool and has the FIFA Under-20 World Cup to look forward to and the Reds may think about sending him to a Championship club instead. Lamare Bogarde is another from the Prem, and he did exceptionally well from Aston Villa, whilst Ellery Balcombe appeared a few times after being borrowed by Brentford.
If any loanee is to return though, it'll probably be Lewis Gibson who is out of contract with Everton, and is at risk of leaving Goodison Park having never made a competitive appearance despite joining in a move that could have been worth up to £6m. Joey Barton says he'll do all that he can to convince him of rejoining but ultimately it's out of his hands and he must wait like the rest of us.
One big decision is whether Aaron Collins leaves the Memorial Stadium after a campaign in which he was crowned the best player in League One. The 25-year-old is hot property right now with 16 goals and 11 assists, so do you sell him whilst interest is high or keep him in the hope he replicates his form?
