Jack Colback

Another in the list of solid midfielders is Jack Colback, who signed for Newcastle United from bitter rivals Sunderland.

Colback is liked rather than loved by Newcastle fans for his tireless energy and work rate – but his goal scoring and creative abilities could be better.

The Ginger Pirlo is loved by his managers for the work he does that goes unnoticed by the public, but for that very reason Magpies fans have never warmed to the lad from Killingworth.

Transfer rating: 7/10
