Toby Alderweireld: Wants longer to think about whether he should go to Norwich

The Belgium international, who can play at centre-half or right-back, has reportedly attracted the attention of several clubs after a series of impressive performances in the Eredivisie last season.

Norwich are understood to be keen on striking a deal but Alderweireld has not yet made his mind up on the best course of action for his career, and has suggested he could see out the final 12 months of his contract in Amsterdam.

"I am still at Ajax and I am happy here, maybe I will stay for a year," he told Dutch television station AT5.

"With every bid that comes, I see if it is good for me. Whether I will stay or not is something we'll have to see about.

"I'm not saying 'no' in advance to Norwich, but I am certainly not saying 'yes' immediately.

"Maybe I will stay a year, which could be for the best. The overall picture has to be right for me. Maybe that will be Norwich City or any other club."

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!
