Stephane Sessegnon: Backed by Steve Clarke

After a bright start to his Baggies career, Sessegnon's form has dropped off in recent weeks and he has found himself relegated to the bench.

But Clarke is fully behind his £6million capture from Sunderland and says he will soon be back on the goal-scoring trail.

"He doesn't say much but he is confident enough. Every attacking player misses chances," Clarke told the Birmingham Mail.

"Stephane knows that and he will keep getting in the right positions and he will score goals for us and he will be good for us.

"I don't think he is lacking confidence.

"He tried hard for us at Newcastle. It was a difficult game for him to get into. He couldn't really get into it to affect it too much for us.

"But that is different to confidence. He is confident enough. We just couldn't get him in the game enough."

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!
