Jay Bothroyd: Ready for Remy challenge

The 30-year-old was loaned to Sheffield Wednesday at the start of the campaign after appearing surplus to requirements under Rangers' former manager Mark Hughes.

But Bothroyd made an instant impact on his return to the Rs, scoring the only goal in their FA Cup replay at West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday. He is hoping for a fresh start at Loftus Road and will not be put off by any new arrivals.

Speaking to the London Evening Standard, he said "This was the opportunity I wanted. Everyone knows Harry is a very honest man. If the club sign another striker, I will welcome the competition.

"Things didn't work out for me before now. But I want to stay with QPR and am determined to work hard for my spot."

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!
