Tony Pulis: Needs all his strikers at his disposal during busy period

Strikers Kenwyne Jones and Cameron Jerome have been linked with loan moves elsewhere after struggling to establish themselves as regular starters at the Britannia Stadium this season.

However, Pulis maintains neither player will be going anywhere as he wants a full squad available to him.

He admits the fitness of Michael Owen has been a factor in his decision not to let players go, with the former Manchester United man working hard to get in peak condition but currently sidelined with a hamstring problem.

Pulis said in The Sun: "I won't be letting anyone go. We have so many games coming up we need all the players we can.

"Michael's fitness is very much at the back of my mind when keeping Cameron and Kenwyne."

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!
