Lennon has watched Huddersfield twice in the past week, against Burnley and Bolton, and speculation is mounting that Celtic are hoping to sign striker James Vaughan.

Vaughan has scored 12 goals so far this season for the Championship club, and Lennon revealed he rates the player.

"I've been watching a lot of players," said Lennon, whose team face Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership at Fir Park on Friday night.

"I'm not here to talk about one specific player. There were 22 players at Huddersfield-Burnley and 22 players at Bolton-Huddersfield.

"Maybe I wasn't specifically looking at James Vaughan. I've been linked with him and that's fine, people are putting two and two together.

"I have spoken to Mark Robins, I know Mark from my playing days. So it's not just James Vaughan I'm looking at but he is a player we think is a good player."

Some media outlets in Scotland have insisted Huddersfield manager Robins is reluctant to sell the 25-year-old.

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!
