Paul Dummett: Celebrates after scoring his first goal for Newcastle

The 22-year-old full-back has impressed in recent weeks having scored on his St James' Park debut against Liverpool on October 19, and the home-grown youngster is mulling over a new long-term deal.

"We have a deal in place for Paul that we have talked about," said Pardew.

"That has been talked about for a while. Whether it gets resolved in the next week or so - I don't know."

Dummett has been ruled out of Saturday's match with Chelsea, with Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor doubtful for the game at St James' Park.

"He (Dummett) has an injury that will rule him out on Saturday," added Pardew.

"We don't think it is too bad but is a shame because we really love him and he's on the crest of a wave.

"We are pretty stretched for Chelsea.

"But we have four senior players that are playing well at the moment in our back four."

S

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!
