The 24-year-old has penned a one-year deal with Mark Robins' Terriers following a successful trial and the former Real Madrid B man cannot wait to get started.

"My dream has always been to come to England," he told the club's official website. "I feel my style of play is really suited to English football in the way I attack and participate in the game.

"I'm really happy that the club has shown the confidence in me to help me realise my dream. Now I want to repay that faith and confidence by doing the absolute best I can for the club.

"I'm really happy with my first week here. All the management, coaching staff and the players have made me feel really welcome and I've enjoyed the work we have been doing. I'm looking forward to continuing that. I'll keep working hard."

He added: "My first aim is to work as hard as I can day to day, just like all the other players. I'll work every day and take everything as it comes, but my aim is to earn a place in the starting eleven and make sure I stay there by playing as well as I possibly can."

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!
