McDermott is becoming increasingly resigned to settling with his current squad as he continues to be ruled by financial constraints at Elland Road.

The former Reading chief has secured three new players in the summer but has reached deadlock over a fourth, a player that he described as "key" to his plans.

"I've got no idea," he told the Yorkshire Post when asked if any new faces would arrive before their season opener against Brighton.

"There's nothing to say on that at the moment. There's no point in saying things and saying nothing because that's all I'm doing. We've nothing to report.

"What I think is that we've got the players we've got. I'm happy to work with the players we've got because that's what I've got. There's no point talking about players I don't have. I've never done that in the past and I won't do it here."

He added: "We'll work with the players we've got, do the best we can and see where we end up at the end of August."

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!
