Luuk de Jong: Could be set for move

The Swiss-born Dutch international joined Monchengladbach in the summer of 2012, shunning a number of English clubs, including Newcastle.

However, his move to Germany has been anything but a success with just six league goals since arriving in the Bundesliga.

Indeed, De Jong is yet to start a game this season and a move away from the club, probably on loan, looks likely next month.

De Jong has now confirmed a meeting with the club's director of sport Max Eberl has been organised.

"Next week, we'll put my adviser and my father together with Max Eberl. We'll see what happens after that," he told Bild.

With Newcastle still interested, and Stoke strongly linked, a switch to England appears likely and, when asked about a possible Premier League deal, he said: "You never know. In a transfer period it can go very fast."

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!
