Reports emerged last week that Forest's Kuwaiti owners, the Al-Hasawi family, were weighing up a move to bring Hunter to the City Ground as director of football.

Forest have a gap in their hierarchy after the Al-Hasawis controversially sacked long-serving chief executive Mark Arthur and dismissed Reds legend Frank Clark from his ambassadorial role last month.

Chief scout Keith Burt was also given the boot along with Arthur and Clark.

Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace told the Comet: "They (Forest) are not the first club to show an interest in him and I doubt they'll be the last since he's a talented young man with an extensive knowledge of British and overseas players and agents.

"However, he's loving the role at Stevenage and has a high level of autonomy and responsibility so I don't think it will be that easy for him to be enticed away.

"However, as with professional players, if any individual working in football has the chance to move to the highest level, I'm sure he or she will do so."

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.

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!
