The Newcastle winger, who had a spell at St Andrew's towards the end of last term, returns to the club on a season-long deal.

Clark admits he is delighted to land the Northern Ireland international from his former club as he aims to propel Blues towards promotion.

"I'm absolutely delighted to be able to bring Shane in," said Clark. "It's taken the longest of all the deals but he was one I wasn't going to give up on.

"He did really well for us last season and I'm sure the fans are very happy to have him back.

"I think it will be good move for him playing week in and week out, which he hasn't really done at a first-team level, because he'll get stronger and stronger.

"I've also want to thank my old club Newcastle who have done really well for us in terms of the way they've structured the deal financially for us."

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.

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!
