We have a squad of over 30 players in the first team pool...Bruce has already said he wants a smaller, leaner, hungrier squad of about 24. So at least 7/8 will not be replaced. As another poster pointed out, contracts handed to Pudil and Nuhiu last season were a waste of money because neither has been able to contribute to any great extent...and assuming they are on about £25k between then that is £1.3m spunked down the toilet. Multiply that by several other players who don't contribute enough and you're probably looking at the thick end of £10m in wages which can be diverted to quality loans.
It's a difficult balancing act but I'm confident we have the perfect manager with his years of Championship experience to perform the surgery we need.
