The 28-year-old spent the majority of last season with the Saddlers and continued to feature for Dean Smith's men during pre-season while his future was discussed.

"I am relieved to get things sorted," he told the club's official website. "It's been a long process, but I am happy that everything is now agreed and I can concentrate on the season ahead.

"I feel fit and determined; I've come back in decent nick and it's been nice to get a couple of games and a goal under my belt already."

Smith added: "It's a situation that's dragged on for a while, but I am happy that Craig has signed a new deal with us.

"He was an integral part of the squad that did so well in the second half of last season."

Westcarr, who began his career with Nottingham Forest, scored five times in 11 starts last season after making his loan move from Chesterfield permanent in late January.

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!
