Paul Robinson: His agent has revealed his future at Blackburn may be in doubt

Rovers were linked with a move to bring goalkeeper Friedel back to Ewood Park before the emergency loan window closed last month, and speculation has continued in light of the renewed challenge to the veteran's first-team place at Tottenham from France international Hugo Lloris.

Robinson remained with Blackburn despite their relegation last season and his representative Rob Segal insists the former England international is happy plying his trade in the Championship - a state of affairs that would change if he lost the number-one spot.

"Paul would be totally happy to stay, he is very happy at Blackburn," Segal told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"But at this stage of his career Paul wants to be playing football.

"If they want to bring in Brad Friedel that's their prerogative, Henning Berg might want to bring his own players in. If he played with Brad I can sort of understand it.

"If they can sort something out with Tottenham then we'll be on our way."

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!
