With the transfer window in full swing and the new Championship season edging ever nearer, we look at three stars to watch for from the sides relegated from the Premier League.



Watford; Domingos Quina

Entering his fourth year at Vicarage Road, the former Portugal Under-21 international has made less than 40 appearances but retains the tag of 'highly-thought of prospect'.

Still only 22, Quina spent last season on loan in the Championship with Fulham and Barnsley.

Both exiting the division in opposite directions, just two matches for runaway title-winners Cottagers saw him join eventually-relegated Tykes for the second half of the campaign.

Impressing at Oakwell, he contributed a pair of goals as Poya Asbaghi's men failed to catch the Royals after a poor start.

Scoring a worldie of a goal against Reading in the 2018 Carabao Cup, Quina is an attack-minded midfielder with an eye for a spectacular strike.

Despite being farmed out on temporary spells, his most active individual season was the last time Watford were in the Championship, playing 15 times as the Hornets were promoted.

Speaking to the Watford Observer earlier in the season, he outlined his plans for next season, saying: " Obviously, I want to play for the fans and I want to play for Watford, but some things you can't control. I can only control what I can do."



Norwich City; Josh Sargent

Another 22-year-old who could set the league alight next year is USA international Sargent.

Signed from Werder Bremen for reportedly nine million euros, a return of just two league goals in what was an injury- hit campagin was disappointing for Canaries fans as they made an immediate return to the Championship.

Heavily reliant upon the likes of Teemu Pukki and Emiliano Buendia in the past, with the Finland international hitting 56 in his two second tier seasons before now.

Playing predominantly out wide last time out, Sargent is adaptable and raw enough to make himself a real nuisance in what promises to be another year looking up as opposed to over their shoulder.



Scott Twine

One of the hottest Football League properties last season, 20 goals and 13 assists from midfield was enough for Vincent Kompany and Burnley to splash the cash and take him to Turf Moor.

A vital cog in Liam Manning’s MK Dons outfit, one lauded by many for their style of play, he provided a goal threat from the hole behind the striker and even when he was played in a wider position, to finish as the club’s top scorer.

Spending just one campaign in Buckinghamshire after his move from Swindon Town, he must now face the step up to the Championship and the pressure of joining one of the more fancied teams for promotion.

It will be intriguing to see how he gets on after proving too good for opponents in the third tier.
