The upcoming window provides O’Neill with a big chance to mould the current squad to fit his identity and as a result I do feel we will see a good few players coming in.
As a result of this, he is sure to want to trim his current side of it’s unwanted members and there should be a big turnover of personnel.
They will be looking to be in and around the promotion places next season, so it’s important that they get things right.
