Steven Pressley: Has released youngsters

The quartet, all Academy graduates, have been deemed surplus to requirements by boss Steven Pressley having failed to make an impact this season, with only centre-back Henderson managing two first-team appearances, both of which came in September before the Scot's arrival.

Pressley said: "I feel that Shaun, Will, Josh and Joe are at a point in their career where they should be really pushing for first-team football.

"It's a difficult decision to let any player go but we will do all we can to help them in their future careers.

"From the club's point of view, it's massively important to me that we continue to develop our own and ensure that our younger players are staking a claim for a place in the first team on a regular basis."

The quartet join Richard Wood, Jordan Stewart, Stephen Elliott, Nathan Cameron and Danny Philliskirk, each of whom were released at the end of April.

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!
