Jazz Richards: New three-year deal with Swansea

The Wales international would have been out of contract in the summer, but his new contract extends his stay through to 2016.

He said: "I'm delighted to have signed a new contract at the club.

"Being a Swansea boy, I see my career at the club and I was very keen to commit my future to the Swans."

Richards has yet to make a Premier League appearance under Michael Laudrup and is currently on loan at Championship promotion-hopefuls Crystal Palace.

"The plan is to finish the season strongly and try my best to get Palace into the Premier League," he added.

"Then I'll return to Swansea and look to impress Michael Laudrup enough to be involved regularly in his first-team plans."

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!
