The Irishman has not featured since the opening day Capital One Cup defeat to Northampton due to a hamstring injury but is ready for a return to action after being a regular for Cardiff's development side.

"I'm fit now to be fair," he told the South Wales Echo. "I have played six or seven games with the development team so hopefully I will be involved at some point.

"It's good. I spoke with the gaffer a couple of days ago about the situation.

"Obviously the boys are playing really well and there's some good young boys who are doing well. But if needed, I'm looking forward to playing."

McPhail has made over 200 appearances for the club since moving from Barnsley in 2006.

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!
