The 18-year-old, voted Owls fans' player of the month for October, has made a big impact since arriving on loan in mid-September, scoring his fourth goal in 13 appearances in the recent win over Peterborough.

Barkley, who has credited Owls boss Dave Jones and his coaching staff with his progress at Hillsborough, told Wednesday's official website: "I've followed the career of Dave Jones for a long time, from when he was at Cardiff. He's a Scouser from the same area as me so I've always taken an interest in his career.

"I was made up when I found out he was interested in bringing me to Wednesday. I've really enjoyed my time here so far. I feel as if I have made a lot of progress and that's the most important thing.

"The manager and the coaching staff talk to me all the time and that's a great help. I'm playing regular football at a good level in the Championship so I'm really pleased with how things are going.

"I'm taking things one step at a time and we will see what happens from here. I see my future in the long term with Everton, but right now, I'm enjoying my football and the experience I'm getting with Sheffield Wednesday."

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!
