Zeli Ismail: Joins up with Notts County

Ismail also held talks with Scottish Premiership club Aberdeen but has opted for a temporary spell with the Magpies and made his first appearance for Shaun Derry's side during Tuesday evening's pre-season friendly at Nuneaton.

The 20-year-old, who will remain at Meadow Lane until the Christmas period, had plenty of suitors with Burton keen on having him back following a successful loan stint with the League Two club last season.

"It's great to get that deal over the line," said Notts boss Derry.

"He did really well at Burton last season and he's very highly thought of at Wolves.

"He has now taken that next step into League One and I'm hoping we can help him develop as a footballer.

"More importantly, for us, he will improve the squad.

"Zeli is an out and out wideman. We lost Jamal Campbell-Ryce and we have been talking about replacing him.

"I enjoy watching the wide players and I like it when they are on the front foot - Zeli is certainly that.

"He brings a lot of pace and a vision and when he gets the ball down he attacks."

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!
