This would be a loan, the only one I’ve included on my list, but certainly one of interest. Hirst was at Sheffield Wednesday but that fell apart not long after his debut after he rejected a new contract. He looked set to join Man Utd but instead wound up at OH Leuven. After one year in Belgium, he came back to the UK and signed for Leicester City, before joining Rotherham last season. Hirst is 22 now and failed to score during his time at the New York Stadium. His England youth honours, up to Under 20 level, look a long way away and he desperately needs a move that will rejuvenate his career.
