Ayew brothers distraught as Swansea City suffer relegation

Peter Crouch celebrates with his Stoke team-mates

But who are the vultures likely to circle for...? It surely won't be long before someone snaps him up.

Rounding off the defence is Dutch left-back Erik Pieters. The giant Egypt worldwide settled quickly at the Hawthorns, prompting links to Liverpool and Leicester before his loan deal was made permanent in January. His performances in victories against Manchester United, Tottenham and Newcastle showed he belongs at the top level. They lost seven and drew seven of his remaining matches.

The biggest win, a 1-0 victory over Liverpool to spark the unbeaten run that nearly kept Swansea safe.

The 52-year-old will now take a few days out to reflect on the season before deciding whether he wants to have another go next term. A relegation release clause dictates that Allen can join any top-six club - other than Liverpool - for £25m, although his future might lie in mid-table, with West Ham and Wolves both keen. He could be a target for sides needing to add more goals and a physical presence up front. Amid talk of interest from Turkey and the Premier League, Ndiaye will be eager to showcase his talents with Senegal at the World Cup to avoid hanging around in the Championship.

Compared to the dire straights the club was in in 2003 when they retained their Football League status in the last game of the season, Swansea are still in good shape.

Swansea City have parted company with manager Carlos Carvalhal following their relegation from the Premier League.

Butland will also be on a number of wanted lists this summer.

To Swansea's credit, there was a vibrancy and attacking vigour to their first-half play and Jordan Ayew fired an early free-kick into the wall before an almighty scramble in the box, with Jack Butland standing firm.

Carlos Carvalhal's side needed a win, a Southampton loss and a 10-goal swing in order to preserve its place among the elite, having netted only twice in their last eight top-flight games.

Despite relegation to League One, Sunderland still received more than £41 million in parachute payments from the Premier League. The likes of Jonny Evans, Jake Livermore, Craig Dawson and Salomon Rondon could all look for moves back to the Premier League.
