Martyn Woolford: Swapping Ashton Gate for The Den

Woolford has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Lions who have paid an undisclosed fee to their npower Championship rivals.

The Pontefract-born wide man joined City from Scunthorpe, after starting out with York City, and leaves having made 59 appearances, scoring four goals in the process.

He is well known to fans at The Den, although not for the right reasons, as it was his dramatic goal that secured Scunthorpe promotion to the Championship in 2009 at Wembley.

Woolford said: "I knew there might be some interest from Millwall just before that New Year's Day game, but it has all happened very quickly.

"I absolutely delighted to coming here at an exciting time for this club, and I'll be speaking to Trotts (Liam Trotter) and Josh (Wright) this afternoon to get the low down.

Hopefully the fans will forgive me for that Play-Off goal, I'll be trying to make it up to them!"

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
