Harry Redknapp: Reunited with Ian Broomfield at QPR

Broomfield, who was in charge of Redknapp's scouting operations at both Portsmouth and Tottenham, replaces Mike Rigg and will be in charge of identifying transfer targets as well as working closely with the academy.

Speaking to the club's official website, Broomfield said: "I've worked closely with Harry for a number of years now, so it's great to link up with him again.

"A scouting job is 24/7 and I've never really had a break for 25 years, but I left Spurs in September and I'm refreshed and looking forward to working back in football.

"The opportunity to work with Harry again was ideal.

"When I spoke to the hierarchy at the club about the plans they have to take QPR forward, it sounded like the kind of project I wanted to be part of."

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!
