Premier League summer transfers mean relegation is impossible to call

Bookies and pundits alike are currently scratching their heads trying to figure out just who will be relegated from the Premier League in the 2015-16 campaign.

Beyond the top five or six teams there are a whole host of teams who's fans will be hoping for a positive seasons away from the wrong end of the table.


There are a few sides that have had generally quite good campaigns last year like Crystal Palace, Stoke and Swansea that will surely be safe and build on last season's positive seasons respectively.

All three have notably also made some seemingly great signings, such as Yohan Cabaye for Palce, Marco van Ginkel on loan from Chelsea for Stoke, and Andre Ayew on a free transfer looks like an absolute steal for Swansea.

Newcastle will likely be safe with a stable manager and big money signings of Wijnaldum, Mitrovic and Mbemba. Meanwhile, although West Ham tailed off after last season they have since employed Bilic and signed players such as Juventus' Angelo Ogbonna. 

Making upgrades

Similarly, some gamble signings mean that no side looks particularly weak.

Sunderland captured Younes Kaboul for free as well as £8M Jeremain Lens, whilst Leicester have managed to get Christian Fuchs for free as well as Shinji Okazaki for £7M.

Meanwhile, you can make a case for all three promoted sides staying up such is the quality in their squads, and the tight competition they now find themselves in.

West Bromwich Albion have £20M to spend this Summer should the reported sale of Saido Berahino to Tottenham go forward to compliment other sales.

Aston Villa have permanently signed Scott Sinclair and Micah Richards and have verbally agreed the signing of Jordan Ayew from Lorient - they still have money left in the bank after that, too. 

I could simply be wrong and the three promoted sides could simply go back down, but either way, this season looks as if the bottom of the table will be just as interesting as the top.
