STEPHEN ELLIOTT (Sunderland)
The Republic of Ireland Under-21 striker left Manchester City due to a lack of first-team games, but he will get his chance to shine this season.
Elliott, 20, made his Premiership bow for City in March at Bolton but found himself behind Robbie Fowler, Nicolas Anelka, Jon Macken and Paolo
He has a natural instinct for scoring and was prolific for City's youth and reserve sides.
Elliott could take the division by storm as Sunderland go for promotion.
