Alejandro Faurlin: On his way to Italy

Alejandro Faurlin: On his way to Italy

Palermo made a bid for Faurlin earlier in the window, but that was rejected by QPR.

They have now returned and this time have come to an agreement with the Hoops and are now taking him on loan until the end of the season.

Harry Redknapp had insisted he wanted the 26-year-old to stay with the club, but with other players due to arrive before Thursday's deadline - he has sanctioned his departure.

Faurlin, who is anxious to secure regular first-team football, is set to become the third Argentine to leave England for Palermo following on from Mauro Boselli and Mauro Formica - who completed respective moves from Wigan and Blackburn earlier in the month.

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!
