Toni Silva: Has left Barnsley after one season at Oakwell

Lidakevicius joined Barnsley's Academy in August 2011 before turning professional ahead of last season.

But the Lithuania U21 international failed to make a first-team appearance for the Tykes.

Portuguese winger Silva moved to Oakwell from Liverpool last summer but failed to make an impression.

The 19-year-old leaves Barnsley after making only one first-team appearance.

Meanwhile, Christian Dibble has moved to Oakwell from Bury after speaking to Barnsley goalkeeper coach Ian Willcock.

"I'm obviously very pleased," Dibble said. "I was very surprised because one minute I'm signing for Bury and then suddenly I got a call off Willco saying they wanted to sign me so I'm very pleased about it."

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!
