Callum Ball: Extended stay at Meadow Lane

The 21-year-old striker joined the Magpies at the end of November and he will now remain with the League One club for the remainder of the season.

Ball suffered a bout of concussion recently but he will be back in the squad for Saturday's home game against Sheffield United.

"Derby have been great and Steve McClaren has fully acknowledged what we are trying to do here," said Notts boss Shaun Derry.

"One or two other clubs were interested in signing Callum so for him to choose Notts County shows he believes in what we are trying to do here."

The Magpies are also looking to extend Callum McGregor's loan from Celtic, which expired last weekend, but other clubs are interested in the midfielder and the Scottish champions have yet to make a decision on the 20-year-old's future.

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.

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!
