Sheffield Wednesday: Welcome Andelko Savic to the club

The 20-year-old striker joins up with the Owls from Italian side Sampdoria having made his Serie A debut in January of this year.

With opportunities limited at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, Savic is looking forward to gaining some valuable experience at his new club.

"I am very happy to come to Sheffield Wednesday, this is a very big club and a very big opportunity for me," he told the club's official website.

"I am a big admirer of English football, it is very different from over in Italy, it is much more physical but I like it here.

"I am really looking forward to getting started. I am enjoying the training, there are some very good players here, good coaches and a good manager and I want to show everyone what I can do."

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!
