Daryl Murphy: Celtic striker hoping to seal a permanent move to Ipswich

Murphy moved to Parkhead in a £800,000 deal from Sunderland in the summer of 2010 but has struggled to hold down a first-team place north of the border.

The 30-year-old has made just nine starts for the SPL champions in three years, spending the majority of the last two seasons on loan at Portman Road.

With his contract set to expire at the end of the month, Murphy admits he is keen to seal a permanent move to the Tractor Boys, even if it means a drop in wages.

"In a perfect world I would love to stay on at Ipswich," said the Republic of Ireland forward. "It won't bother me to take a pay cut because that's what I did to join Celtic.

"For me it's all about playing and if it wasn't I would still be at Sunderland picking up my money."

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!
