Relegation from the Premier League would usually condemn those involved to at least a season in the Championship, but these lucky seven may be handed a reprieve this summer.
Here, fanatix picks out some Hull City, Burnley and Queens Park Rangers players who could be spared a trip to Rotherham United next season by interested top-flight clubs…
1. Danny Ings (Burnley)
It became clear only a few games into this season that Danny Ings would not be playing in the second tier next term regardless of Burnley’s fate, with his contract at Turf Moor to expire in June.
He has been linked with Real Sociedad and Tottenham Hotspur, but appears to be on his way to Liverpool and a deal could be agreed as early as next week, according to reports.
