David Cornell: Joining St Mirren on a season-long loan deal

Cornell arrives on a season-long loan from Swansea City while Dilo and Dillon have signed one-year deals after leaving Blackburn Rovers and Hull City respectively

Swansea are happy to loan out Wales Under 21 international Cornell so that he can gain some valuable first-team experience at St Mirren.

St Mirren boss Danny Lennon was delighted to bring in the trio ahead of the new season.

"Swansea are a football club that share a very similar philosophy to ourselves so I know David will come in here and fit the criteria in every department that we want," Lennon told the club's official website

"Chris was with us for a while at the tail end of last season,"

"Looking forward he shows great potential and with the quality coaching he'll get from Paul Mathers I'm sure we'll see him challenging for the keeper's spot sooner rather than later.

"Kealan is a midfielder and we had a look at him a couple of times last season and what he showed us was great commitment on and off the pitch, and we are looking for big things from him as we look to invest in not only the immediate future but the long term future too for our football club."

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!
