Blackburn Rovers are preparing for another busy summer window under John Eustace.

The Rovers head coach will want to put his stamp on the squad after securing their Championship status.

Last summer, Rovers said goodbye to a number of players, both in player sales, returning loanees and contracts ending.

We've taken a look back to see how those decisions have aged, with most vindicating Rovers' decision.

Thomas Kaminski

Blackburn Rovers bid farewell to their Belgian number one when Luton Town came calling in the Premier League.

Although the season ended in relegation, the shot-stopper played every top-flight game for the Hatters and made a great impression, winning Players Player and Home Player of the Season at their end-of-campaign award night.

Kaminski will return to Ewood Park next season with Luton where he is sure to get a good reception.

Ash Phillips

The defender was sold to Tottenham Hotspur last summer after they triggered a release clause in his contract. Rovers were left pretty powerless in the deal and it left a bad taste for some supporters.

Phillips spent the second half of the season on loan at Plymouth Argyle, where they narrowly avoided the drop. Argyle fans seemed pretty impressed by his performances.

Another Championship loan would make sense, though he's said to be highly rated by Ange Postecoglou.

Tayo Edun

Edun left Rovers on a free transfer, with some clauses inserted into the deal upon certain achievements with Charlton to help Rovers recoup their 400K.

They certainly didn't happen last year, with the Addicks struggling in League One. They recovered under Nathan Jones to finish mid-table, with Edun making 30 appearances in all competitions.

Charlton will probably make a better fist of it next season, in truth.

Daniel Ayala

Well, an eventful season for Ayala. He didn't get snapped up, surprisingly, until October 27, joining Rotherham until for the remainder of the season.

His career was, well eventful. He made seven appearances for them and managed to get sent off twice. The second, an incredible handball on the halfway line away at Watford, already on a yellow card.

He then suffered a long-term injury in the New Year and had his contract mutually cancelled by March. All in all, a complete disaster.

Bradley Dack

Blackburn Rovers' fans' favourite is already on the lookout for a new club after an ill-fated spell at Sunderland.

Dack was brought in by Tony Mowbray but his favoured boss then left shortly into the new campaign. In truth, he barely featured anyway due to injuries.

Rovers' decision to part ways with Dack was emotional but the right call. He only managed 16 league appearances in total and was never able to shake off his fitness problems.

It will be interesting to see where he ends up next. You fear, with his injury record, he might have to drop back into League One. Technically, he'll be too good for the level but his body might cope better with a reduced level of physicality.

Ben Brereton Diaz

Blackburn Rovers said goodbye to their Chilean prince and off he went in a yellow submarine. But not for long.

Brereton Diaz signed a long-term contract with Villarreal but struggled in his early months. He made 14 appearances in La Liga, failing to score.

A switch back to England followed with a loan move to Sheffield United. He fared better in more familiar surroundings, with six goals in 14 games for a struggling Premier League side.

His next move will be interesting. Does he want another crack in Spain or does England suit him far better with a young family? His return for the Blades was decent so a top-flight club might take a gamble on him.

Clinton Mola

Ah, Clinton Mola. Perhaps not the fondest name for Blackburn Rovers fans. Thrown in at Turf Moor and never really seen again.

The loanee was released by Stuttgart and found himself in League One with Reading. They've certainly had an eventful season with takeover issues, points deductions and plenty more off-the-field carnage.

Mola started slowly but ended the season with 30 appearances, rediscovering some of the confidence that saw him so highly rated at youth level.

However, it wasn't enough to earn a new deal. He was released at the end of the season and is now looking for a new club.

Tyler Morton

Morton's loan at Rovers was up and down but his second Championship stint was far more consistent at Hull City.

Often playing slightly more advanced, the Liverpool loanee looked more accomplished in his second career loan. The Tigers' style suited his game and their supporters seemed to warm to him.

Morton ended the season with three goals and five assists in 39 outings and will return for pre-season with Arne Slot's as his new gaffer.

Sorba Thomas

Finally, a January loan arrival. Sorba Thomas started well at Rovers but fell out with Jon Dahl Tomasson and didn't have much impact after March.

It's been a difficult season, back at Huddersfield Town, who were relegated from the Championship. He played under four different managers and now has another new one for their League One campaign next term.

Thomas made 41 appearances for the Terriers in total, scoring four goals. There was rumours of behind-the-scenes issues in the dressing room too.
