Wilson Palacios: Will be given the chance to resurrect his Stoke career

The Honduras international moved to Stoke in August 2011 but started just nine Premier League games in his first season and then none last term after falling out of favour with former boss Tony Pulis.

But with next to no interest from other clubs in the player and with new boss Hughes at the helm, the 28-year-old is expected to return to pre-season training in just over a fortnight where he will have the chance to press his claims again.

Stoke chairman Peter Coates told The Sentinel: "He will be back for pre-season training along with everybody else as things stand at the moment.

"I know he has played for Honduras recently and so let's hope that has done him some good.

"Mark wants to have a good close look at everybody when they do return to the club because he wants to make his own assessment of what is in front of him."

Meanwhile, Coates confirmed there had been no serious bids for any Stoke player at present.

"It is that time of year when everybody is away," he said. "Things will start moving again when people begin returning from their holidays and the like."

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!
