With Frank Fielding challenging Adam Legzdins for the number one jersey at Pride Park, the Rams are currently blessed with options between the posts.

Atkins this week returned from a temporary spell at Burton and Rams boss Nigel Clough is keen for the 23-year-old to get some more matches under his belt.

Deeney, 29, meanwhile, has not made a first-team appearance since May 2010 following an injury-plagued two-and-a-half years.

"We will be circulating their names to clubs letting them know that they are available," Clough said.

"It's a luxury for us having two great goalkeepers in Adam and Frank, so hopefully there will be an opportunity for Ross and Saul to get some games.

"We don't like seeing players who are desperate to play sat on the bench. I don't think it's good for them and it's not good for us in the long run."

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!
