Paul Dickov: Contender for Sheffield Wednesday job

Dickov is widely regarded as one of the best young managers in the country and he has impressed already during his short time in charge of Doncaster Rovers.

The Scot has guided Rovers to 15th spot in the Championship and has helped mastermind impressive victories over promotion hopefuls Leicester and Queens Park Rangers this term.

Dickov has been able to achieve these results, despite operating on one of the lowest budgets in the Championship.

The former Oldham chief, who helped his old side to a famous FA Cup win over Liverpool last season, has helped Doncaster establish a reputation as one of the most attractive sides in the Championship with his attacking style of play.

Dickov's progress at the Keepmoat Stadium has not gone unnoticed with the former Arsenal striker thought to have admirers at Sheffield Wednesday as they continue their search for a replacement for Dave Jones

Doncaster value Dickov highly, but could find themselves vulnerable to approaches for 41-year-old with the Scot believed to be not tied down to a long-term contract.

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!
