Another month down the line, we have complied an update on the seven players who departed Ewood Park over the summer and how they are doing at their respective clubs.

Ben Brereton Diaz

The Chilean international is still waiting for his first goal in Spanish football, having made 12 appearances for Villarreal so far.

Brereton Diaz started the 5-0 win against Chiclana in the Copa Del Rey and kept his place for the 2-1 win at Maccabi Haifa in the Europa League – his first taste of European football.

The forward has also continued to represent Chile on the international stage, playing 60 minutes in the goalless draw against Paraguay on Friday.

However, opportunities have proved hard to come by in La Liga. Brereton will be hoping that changes following the appointment of Marcelino, who succeeds Jose Rojo Martin after just two months in the hot seat.

Bradley Dack

Dack returned to action earlier this month in a goalless draw at Swansea following a spell out with a hamstring problem.

It was his seventh appearance of the season and he has scored once so far – that goal coming in a 5-0 victory against Southampton.

Sunderland are currently sixth in the Championship table, above West Brom and Hull on goal difference at this stage.

Tony Mowbray’s side have won two of their last three matches, beating Birmingham 3-1 last time out thanks to goals from Jobe Bellingham and Adil Aouchiche, as well as a Dion Sanderson own goal.

Thomas Kaminski

The Belgian goalkeeper has continued to be a regular starter for Luton as they aim to build on last season’s promotion to the Premier League.

The Hatters currently sit 17th in the table – one point above the drop zone after 12 games. They have been boosted by Everton’s recent 10-point deduction for breaching Premier League financial rules, which saw the Toffees drop into the bottom three.

Rob Edwards’ side drew 1-1 against Liverpool earlier this month, with Kaminski making an important stop to deny Diogo Jota.

Daniel Ayala

The experienced defender has made three appearances for Rotherham so far after finally ending his search for a new club.

Ayala’s first start for the Millers came in the 2-2 draw against Ipswich earlier this month, playing an hour before making way for Sean Morrison.

The Spaniard is still building up his fitness but will be hoping to help Rotherham climb out of the bottom three.

The Yorkshire outfit are still searching for their new boss after parting company with Matt Taylor last week.

Ash Phillips

The highly-rated youngster is still waiting for an opportunity at first-team level, although he has been named on the bench.

Phillips made another EFL Trophy appearance last month in a 3-1 defeat against Peterborough at the Weston Homes Stadium.

The Spurs youngsters are on track to qualify for the knockout rounds, although that could change if Colchester beat Peterborough on Tuesday night. There would also need to be a significant swing in terms of goal difference.

The first team are fourth in the Premier League table, having dropped slightly following defeats against Wolves and Chelsea after a brilliant start.

Tayo Edun

Edun has continued to get minutes under his belt for Charlton in League One under former Rovers boss Michael Appleton, who replaced Dean Holden in the dugout a couple of months ago.

The defender also featured in the emphatic 6-1 victory against non-league Cray Valley in an FA Cup first round replay last week.

Charlton sit 11th in the table and held leaders Portsmouth to a 2-2 draw at Fratton Park in their last league outing thanks to goals from Abu Kamara and Colby Bishop.

Dan Butterworth

The 24-year-old made his first Carlisle start in the 2-1 win against last month and kept his place in the side against Cambridge and Leyton Orient.

Carlisle find themselves 22nd in the League One table as they aim to build on last season’s promotion from the fourth tier.

Paul Simpson’s side beat Harrogate 2-0 in the EFL Trophy in their last outing, with Butterworth coming off the bench for the final 20 minutes.
