The League One club did not go into specific details on why City have cooled their interest in the 25-year-old central defender.

Crawley chief executive Richard Low said: "There has been a lot of speculation about Kyle in the last few days and, as everyone knows, we were having ongoing discussions with Bristol City.

"They have now pulled out of any deal to sign Kyle so he remains a Crawley Town player which is obviously great news for everyone at the club.

"Of course the transfer window is open for another seven days and who knows what might happen but Kyle is happy here and is working hard in the gym to get his fitness back and we hope he will be back and available for selection soon."

Bristol City manager Sean O'Driscoll later revealed that the Championship club remain keen on McFadzean, but that they will not be pursuing him further until the end of the season.

O'Driscoll said on the club's Twitter feed: "To end speculation, there's still an interest in Kyle McFadzean but, given our situation, it's more likely for the summer."

S

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!
