Moore, whose second-half strike sealed Alex's 2-0 League Two play-off final victory over Cheltenham at Wembley last month, is out of contract but is under-23 so would command a compensation fee if he chooses to leave.

Railwaymen boss Steve Davis told his club's official website: "We have had early talks with Byron's agent. We very much want him to stay and be part of our plans here.

"I spoke with Byron three months ago telling him that I wanted him to stay and we have made him a good offer. We may have to tweak one or two things, like most contracts, but then that would be our final offer. We have done all we can and want to keep him.

"In my opinion he should remain with us and progress in League One. I think he will only enhance his reputation by staying here and showing what he can do at the higher level. He had his best season at the football club last time and 10 goals was a good return for a winger.

"We would like Byron to remain patient and trust our judgment because I think the bigger clubs would have come in for him. We can advise him and we have."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
