10. Ben Gibson (Middlesbrough – Burnley)
This was another strange move by Sean Dyche who looked like he was building Brexit United. The club matched the Claret’s transfer record of £15 million when they signed Gibson from his hometown club. It was slightly strange though considering that the previous season James Tarkowski and Ben Mee had been ultra reliable at the back.
Gibson would finish the season as the club’s fourth choice centre back, even behind Irish international Kevin Long. For a man who was once regarded as a potential England starter, this was not the debut campaign he wanted.
