O'Neill spent a large chunk of last season on loan at York City, making 16 appearances for the League Two side and scoring one goal.

The defender was recalled by Burnley for the FA Cup trip to Southampton at the start of the year before joining Southend on a 30-day emergency loan.

A thigh injury cut short O'Neill's stay at Roots Hall but the 22-year-old is now looking forward to regaining his fitness in pre-season training.

"I'm delighted to have signed a new deal and that the gaffer has given me the chance to be here for another two years," O’Neill told Burnley's website.

"I'm looking to get fit now after the injury I sustained whilst I was at Southend last season.

"Sean (Dyche, manager) saw fit to send me out on loan to get some more games under my belt and now I’m back here looking to play and compete.

"I know that will be hard now that we're in the Premier League but if not, then I will be looking to go out on loan again if that is something the gaffer wants me to do.

"I'm happy to be back here with a great group of lads and I’m thoroughly looking forward to pre-season."

S

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!
