Nouha Dicko: Returns to Wigan from Blackpool loan

The 20-year-old, who returned to Bloomfield Road after playing a part in their march to the Championship play-off final last term, scored five goals in 22 games for the Seasiders this season.

All but two of those appearances came as a substitute and Pool boss Michael Appleton revealed Latics were unhappy at the amount of game time on offer to the French youngster.

"They've recalled him obviously because of his lack of first-team minutes, which we've got to respect," Appleton told Blackpool's official website.

Dicko's fellow forward Wes Thomas has returned to Bournemouth following the end of his own loan spell.

Thomas is Appleton's only signing for Blackpool to date and he scored three goals in nine matches.

Elsewhere, veteran midfielder Barry Ferguson and 20-year-old forward Tom Barkhuizen are back at Bloomfield Road loan spells with neighbours Fleetwood.

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!
