Young blood at the heart of Norwich City's transfer strategy

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson and Paul Mariner assess Norwich City's chances of avoiding relegation this season.

Given that Alex Neil will be the youngest Premier League manager by some distance this season at 34, it should come as no surprise Norwich City's transfer strategy has veered towards youth.

Robbie Brady's protracted move from relegated Hull City was the saga of the summer in Norfolk.

Bournemouth, Norwich and Watford will make the Premier League stronger

The Exploding Heads share their guide to the Premier League preseason in which they showcase player tweets from their holiday trips, get excited about new jerseys, preview global tours and more.

The overall quality of the Premier League isn't primarily defined by the strength of the big sides. If anything, the quality of the newly promoted trio is more vital; if there's three formidable teams, the relegation battle is much more exciting, and the unpredictability of the league increases significantly.

Last season, the quality was poor. Of the newcomers, both Burnley and QPR were relegated, and only an unthinkable late surge from Leicester City, who were bottom for nearly half the campaign,...

Terry, Walcott, Carrick and Van Persie available in 2016 as deals expire

The summer transfer market is already being shaped by players whose previous clubs proved unable or unwilling to keep them when their contracts were expiring.
