Nigel Reo-Coker: Considering offer from Vancouver

The former Bolton and Aston Villa star is currently a free agent after his short-term deal with Ipswich came to an end in January.

Now 28-year-old Reo-Coker is ready to quit British football and make the move across the Atlantic.

He had attracted interest from New York Red Bulls and Portland Timbers, but he looks set to seal a move to Canada with Vancouver.

Agent Richard Trafford, who helped broker the deal, confirmed to the Province newspaper: "[Vancouver coach] Martin Rennie did such a good job of selling the club to him.

"It looks like the player will come.

"He had offers from Premier League teams, from Turkey and Greece, but he wants to come to [MLS] at a good age and make a good impact for a few years.

"It's a major league now. He thinks he can add something to the league."

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!

One Liverpool Mailer wants a manager who isn't starstruck by the job. Plus why Milner has now become overrated, play-offs for the title, Ronaldinho and democracy..
