With the end of the season fast approaching, and 2 teams being automatically promoted, and 4 battling it out in the play-offs to get there, we could potentially see a large range of players from this years Championship in next years PL. So let's try and identify the one's to watch out for i.e. players who will settle in well and perform week-in, week-out.
The title says name ONE so if everyone states one, more of us can give an opinion rather than one person just name 60 and the thread become kind of "well he/she's already said everyone!"
Yes, a little bit biased, but Peter Whittingham. Before you say it's total bias, he was a contender for player of the year and many people i've spoken to thought he should have won it. He did win goal of the year. He's played for an ex-PL team and didn't do too badly. Certainly the heart of the team at the City. I think if the Bluebirds are promoted, Whittingham would perform and be a stand-out to opposition teams and fans.
He's got good vision, great feet, a wonderful shot, and just a gem of a player at the club. I could have picked several others and explained why, but i'll wait for a few more people to reply, and then state other players from other clubs too!

Clyne, expecting him to be moving to the PL soon.
Palace aren't going up, but I hear United have/intend to put a bid in, and are on the hunt for him. Would be a great move for him to be at United, and based on his credentials at Palace, certainly someone who should settle in well into the PL. +1
Morgan Schneiderlin. A superb passer, composed on the ball, a good engine and still only 22. Will flourish in the PL as it is less physical than the lower leagues. Expect to see him making waves soon if Saints are promoted.

Really hasn't done anything that indicates he will become one of the worlds best keepers in his time. Good keeper.. Yes.. But to compare to his dad.
I disagree - If it weren't for him we'd be well down the league, safe from relegation at this point but having spent most of the season right down there. He's saved us points and matches all on his own this season, even if he has been off the boil slightly since the Chelsea match.
Possibly Adam Le Fondre. He scores goals at whatever level, so it seems. Now banging them in at Reading. Did once play for my hometown club, Stockport County. My brother's friend is a very good friend of Le Fondre, growing up on the same street and area in Stockport.
