Lav, definitely Lav.
Could become a decent HFF but Stewart looks much better already and Begley looks to have more potential.
Lacks the pace to apply pressure which means Greene, Raz and Tippa will always be ahead of him.
Doesn’t look to have the skillset below the knees for a mid. so Begley (on exposed form) looks ahead of him.
involving him in the trade for Stringer would be similar to a like for like trade (style wise, not skill wise)
Lang and Francis could become much better in the future and that would hurt if it was at another club, Lav I just don’t see where that improvement is going to come from.
All in all he is expendable and the options in the positions he could play are covered by guys the same age who are better at it than him
