Daniel Pudil – Sheffield Wednesday (on loan from Watford) and Czech Republic

Technically, this is a bit of a cheat, as Pudil has technically returned to his parent club Watford.

Thankfully as well after a brilliant season for the Czech left-back.

The 30-year-old midfield convert played 39 of Wednesday’s Championship fixtures this season before featuring as they went down in the play-off final to Hull City.

Faces a battle getting ahead of David Limbersky or Michal Kadlec in the left-back role for his nation however, so may only feature sparingly.
