The past two seasons, 23-year-old Harry Souttar has been a mainstay in the Stoke City defence, and this campaign he has played a big role which has led to Stoke currently having the seventh-best defence in the league.
Souttar is averaging 3.6 tackles and 3.6 interceptions per game, along with an almighty league-high 5.7 clearances per fixture too. Since his injury in November, Stoke’s form has really dropped off, only winning three of their last 10 league games and it only emphasised his importance to the Potters.
When Souttar was in the side, they were in a decent position to make the playoffs. Now, however, he is out for the rest of the season, and the defender has shown enough this season that he is fit for a team that defends deep which could translate into the Premier League.
Possible clubs: Everton, Norwich, Burnley
