    Simple question here.

    I know its early doors here but if you could keep only one of the loanees on a permanent deal, who would it be?

    My choice is Benkovic. I think he, along with Tierney, has the highest potential in terms of their own position.

    Can we not keep them all? Incredibly tough choice.

    Burke's made the biggest impact so far but probably Toljan.

    Toljan for me as we have several options up top and on the wings, but we really need a RB come the summer.

    Burke for the simple reason I believe Weah will be back and Toljan is affordable.....slight slight chance of Benkovic back as well..

    Burke we've no chance of getting back so for that logic..

    That addition makes all the difference! Benkovic, no question.

    Toljan purely because of how he adds to the team. I think if we had him it would be a champions league season. Burke has been better but we have lots of attacking options.

    Really? I think of the 4, he's the most likely to be here permanently. Benko will definitely push into that Leicester side, Weah if we got for another 12 months would be a great bit of business, and Toljan I think will have a number of options other than ourselves.

    I think with how much Burke seems to be enjoying it here, he'll be well up for signing up. I don't know about his wages but I won't have it that we can't sign a former Leipzig (who we've beaten this season) and current West Brom (just * in every way) player..

    But to answer the OP, Toljan or Benkovic. Both are extremely composed young players, far too good for SPFL but exactly the level of player we need to compete in Europe.

    Ooft that’s a tough one.

    I’d say it’s between Benkovic and Toljan though.

    I’ll vote Benkovic due to the situation come the summer.

    We've no chance of getting Burke back, whether he loves it here or no..

    2 of the 4 could well be here next season and although unlikely, Benkovic is more of a possibility of another year than Burke for me..

    How come mate?

    I thought of the 4 clubs we've loaned from, West Brom would be the most likely to sell their man.
