Alefe Santos: Interest from Hull, Celtic and Derby

The 19-year-old Bristol Rovers winger is very highly rated, and Hull had looked to be closing on his signature.

The Tigers have been chasing Santos for months, although they could not agree terms with Rovers and were happy for the deal to go to a tribunal.

With Santos able to sign for a club from Tuesday, Hull had seemed set to conclude a deal but a late move from Derby and Celtic has complicated matters.

The Brazilian-born teenager now has options, with a decision set to be made in the coming days.

A spokesman for his agents Full Contact refused to confirm who Santos was in talks with, telling Sky Sports: “Alefe is considering his options, but we cannot confirm or deny which clubs he is talking to.”

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!

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
