The 22-year-old forward has struggled with injuries this season and has not played for the first team since March 1.

He has already been ruled out of Scotland's friendly international against Nigeria at Craven Cottage on May 28 but will be ready for his club's European games which could start as early as July 16.

Hoops boss Neil Lennon told the Evening Times: "Jamesie will not be going away with Scotland at the end of this month.

"He has had surgery on his groin and needs a bit of time to recover.

"I don't know if Nir Biton, who has been out for a few months, will be going away with Israel. But we are hoping he can."

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!

One Liverpool Mailer wants a manager who isn't starstruck by the job. Plus why Milner has now become overrated, play-offs for the title, Ronaldinho and democracy..
