The former Arsenal and West Ham winger made the surprising switch on Wednesday night following a conversation with Spireites assistant Mark Crossley, who was a team-mate of Boa Morte's at Fulham.

The 35-year-old last played in England with the Hammers in 2011 and concedes it may take time before he can declare himself match-fit.

"I'm just going to take it day-by-day," he told the club's official website. "It's difficult to say how far I am from full fitness but I am looking forward to just keep doing what I was doing, training, and making myself available to play.

"I've just met the lads, I got a good welcome and I'm just looking forward to get back training and to start playing as well."

On the prospect of him being involved in Saturday's clash with Dagenham, Boa Morte added: "I hope so. I've got a session today (Thursday) and I've got a session tomorrow so the manager will be the one to decide but I will definitely give it my best shot."

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!
