Moore's original deal did not expire until next summer, but 'Well were keen to extend it further despite the 19-year old's cruciate ligament injury in the penultimate match of last season against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Surgery has gone well and the hope now is that the striker will be back to play some part next season.

Moore told the club's website: "The club have been excellent and have shown a great deal of faith in me that I will repay.

"Obviously the injury was a huge blow as I wanted to have a good pre-season and really challenge for a starting slot next season.

"However, I couldn't be in better hands with JP (John Porteous) and Adam Stokes in terms of my rehab and, so far, things have being going well.

"Obviously, it wouldn't be right to put a time frame on my return, but I am certainly hopeful it will be ahead of the normal schedule."

Boss Stuart McCall said: "We were delighted with Craig's contribution last season, he really has made the step up.

"He has already proven with his scoring proficiency with the Under 20s, his fruitful time out on loan and his appearances with the first-team, that he is going to have something to offer.

"He's a little different to what we have currently in terms of his style and the way he plays. Obviously his injury is a blow, but this club has a great record of looking after players, nursing them back to fitness and getting the best from them."

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!
