Top 10 Flops of English Premier League 2014-15


10. Brown Ideye (West Bromwich Albion) – £10 million

Brown Ideye cost a massive £10 million and is the club’s record signing, demonstrating just how important the Baggies deemed him to be. However, struggling to find Premier League action regularly all but until Tony Pulis took over at the Hawthorns, the Nigerian looks like a colossal mistake. His failings have been masked by the form of Saido Berahino.

9. Rémy Cabella (Newcastle United) – £8million

Newcastle United paid £8m to sign the mercurial attacking midfielder cum winger from Montpellier in the summer and so far he has netted just once after having made 25 appearance in his debut season.The funky-hair Frenchman has all the tricks and quality but he seems the kind of player who currently needs more time and space than the English game allows.

7. Sandro (Queens Park Rangers) – £6 million

It isn’t unusual for Harry Redknapp to sign a player he has worked with before, but the Sandro he remembers from his Tottenham days was before the midfielder he injured his knee in January 2013. Paying £6 million for the man who had once been approvingly dubbed as “the Beast” has not worked out. He is fragile and terribly injury-prone, commits way too many fouls and has been nothing more than a passenger on the Rangers’ books.

6. Jack Rodwell (Sunderland) – £10 million

The former Everton and Manchester City midfielder lost his regular starting role after six games and though he has featured sporadically since, mainly from the bench. Restored into the starting line-up and been at the heart of the struggling Sunderland midfield; Rodwell’s contribution has been very poor so far and in the final run-up as Sunderland battle relegation.

5. Abel Hernandez (Hull City) – £10 million

Abel Hernandez’s time in the Premier League began promisingly, with three goals in his first six games. His time in east Yorkshire has been disrupted by injury and terribly patchy as far as finding the net regularly has been concerned.He still has time to come good with age on his side and with Hull looking increasingly desperate for goals, there’ll be no respite from the pressure for the Uruguayan as his side mounts a fight for survival
