Adam Bogdan: Hoping to return for Bolton at the weekend

The Trotters No.1 suffered the problem in the 3-2 win at Barnsley on March 2nd and did not feature in his side's subsequent home wins over Blackburn and Brighton, with Andy Lonergan deputising.

Reports suggested the 25-year-old Hungary international would spend a month on the sidelines but Bogdan expects to be back in action more quickly than expected.

"Fortunately it's not true, my rehabilitation is going according to plan," he told Nemzeti Sport.

"I had outside training on Monday and I'll join the team for training during the second half of the week. I'd like to play at the weekend."

Lonergan has kept two clean sheets in Bodgan's absence to stake his claim for the No.1 spot.

The Hungarian hopes he did enough before his injury to secure his place as first-choice keeper but says he is more focused on recovering his fitness.

He said: "Andy Lonergan is an experienced, good keeper but I did also well.

"We had three wins in a row after one victory and two draws, so we remain unbeaten in six games.

"I don't know if I'll be in the goal or not, my task is to be healthy for the game on Saturday."

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!
