Who Should Stay - Who Should Go??

Wolves will now need to look at who should remain in their squad for the Premier League
It's a requirement of Sportnetwork that we publish an item every two weeks, even during the close season, so this seems a relevant point to raise at this point. Please air your views to make my efforts worthwhile!!
After a Championship winning season and promotion to the Premiership, Wolves will now have to decide who should remain in their squad, which players loans should be made permanent deals, and who should leave.
The current permanent squad:
Ikeme, Ruddy, Norris
Doherty, Batth, Coady, Hause, Douglas, Bennett, Miranda, Ofosu-Ayeh,
Saiss, Neves, Gibbs-White
Costa, Cavaleiro, Enobakhare, Bonatini, Mir, Mason
Boly, Vinagre, N'Daiye, Afobe, Jota (subject to deal in place)
Out On Loan
Iorfa Ebanks-Landell, Deslandes, (Jordan) Graham, Oniangue, Ronan, Marshall, Gladon, Zyro Wilson

Quality of new signings will have to be significant to consider allowing others to leave and it will also depend on the positions
he deems most in need of new recruitment.
Those players out on loan would be the main casualties with the exception of ROnan and Wilson.
Defenders..Keep Doherty,Coady,Douglas,Bennett,Hause...sign Boly on permanent deal.
Attackers..Keep Costa,Cav,..sign Jota permanent deal.
That is fifteen names in the squad.Jota deal is foregone conclusion.Let´s ALL hope that Boly is tied up as well.
The two guys standing out from the non existants is Afobe and Bright.I wouldn´t mind if Benik get´s a deal...however I have given up regarding Bright.
Above everything else we need a couple of quality midfielders IMHO..especially one´s that will do the work like Doherty and Douglas has done for us previous season.We need upgrading and cover here.
Furthermore..I have nothing against the 2003 version of Oakes,just that he wasn´t good enough.Neither is Ruddy or Norris.
Ikeme didn´t fit the bill to begin with.We do need the best quality goalie we can get our hands of this silly season.
I would like to upgrade Saiss..good enough for Championship,but to give Ruben the freedom in Prem..we do need the best our money can get besides him.
Attack is fine,however if one is supposed to dream I would like quality upgrade here as well.A plus Blake variant would be nice,the good holding play player.We will need it Greed Leauges I recon.
How true this is I don't know, but it will certainly throw some doubt on John Ruddy being at the club next season if correct.
Harry Burgoyne has gone to Plymouth Argyle on loan, but this will also surely raise a question over the future of John Ruddy - unless of course someone comes in for Will Norris!!
