The centre-half has been sidelined for the last three matches with a hamstring injury but is back in training and in contention for Saturday's first leg against Southend.

Boss Steve Davies told the club's official website: "Dave will train, a short and intense session and we will see how he comes through that.

"He has been feeling fine and running around so we will see how he goes."

Davis also reported further good news from the treatment room.

"Ashley Westwood's foot is a bit sore but he wants to train," he added. "Ajay Leitch-Smith has a dead leg but should be fine. Shaun Miller has returned from illness and is back with us and we have everyone nearly available."

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!
