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."

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!
