I'd like to see a final chance for Kelly as a squad option. He should fit Gomes' style and its easy to forget his breakout season in 16/17. Admittedly he's been very disappointed since then and his most recent performance at Sheff Utd was an abomination, but Gomes has proved an excellent motivator/coach to the likes of Meite, Barrow and Blackett. Why not Kelly?
I actually think Gomes likes Kelly, didn't he say something about having to teach your children a lesson when they don't follow your commands. Feels like Gomes is perhaps making it clear to Kelly that he is not indispensible (perhaps he fell into thinking he was) and this spell out of the team is his way of showing him what he needs to do week in, week out to make the team/squad. I think he'll get pre-season to prove his worth and if not either be sold close to the deadline on the 8th August or leave on a season long loan shortly after.
