Craig Bryson, Derby County:
The Derby midfielder had the season of his life last year and was the subject of bids from both QPR and Burnley over the summer. Despite the extensive Premier League interest, Derby moved to tie down their star man to a lucrative 5 year deal making him the club’s highest paid player. The speculation surrounding him clearly goes to show that Premier League clubs are of the opinion that the Scottish international could make the step up. Derby fans are certainly hoping he will making this leap sooner rather than later.
