Darlow was recalled from a loan spell at Walsall by boss Alex McLeish and then handed his full league debut for the club against Peterborough, helping McLeish gain his first win since taking over at the City Ground.

Darlow got his chance after McLeish informed long-time number one Lee Camp, whose contract is set to expire in the summer, that he could leave Forest this month.

McLeish had previously stated that the 22-year-old would play while he searched for an experienced keeper to replace Camp.

But after signing Khalid Al Rashidi this week, the Scot revealed that Darlow and the Kuwait international will battle it out for the number one spot.

"The only keeper coming in will be Khalid, we have successfully secured a work permit for him," said McLeish.

"He will be back-up to Karl Darlow until he acclimatises, then it will be a big fight between the two guys."

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!
