Blackburn Rovers have tried so hard to keep rising star Junior Hoilett at Ewood Park after the club's relegation, but it appears they're going to ultimately fail. The player will still net Rovers a tiny fee despite the fact that he will be beyond contract due to his young age, but the loss of his talent is far more painful than has been expected.

Monchengladbach finished in the UEFA Champions League places of the Bundesliga this year and offers a lot quicker option to first team action and top European competition than Arsenal or Bayern Munich, and Tottenham are only set to provide UEFA Europa League football.
