The Norwich loan star marked his first start in eight matches with a late equaliser to prevent a Chris Eagles strike landing all three points for the visiting Wanderers.

Grayson said of Vaughan afterwards: "We are delighted to have him back in the team. We have seen previously what he can do for us and the quality he has.

"If you paid money to come and watch this game I don't think you were short changed. The game swung backwards and forwards and I have kicked every ball and gone through every emotion. We made some mistakes but we could have nicked it at the end.

"Bolton are a top, top team at the wrong end of the division. They have Premier League experience and we showed we can compete."

On goalkeeper Alex Smithies, who made several impressive saves to deny Bolton, Grayson added: "Alex is a fantastic goalkeeper and he made a mistake last week but he showed his quality.

"He's mentally strong and goalkeepers need that. They can be heroes one minute and villains the next."

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!
