Jazz Richards: Wants to impress for Swansea in pre-season

Richards did not appear in the Premier League for Swansea last season and spent three months on loan in the Championship with Crystal Palace.

He enjoyed the experience at Selhurst Park, but now wants to challenge Angel Rangel to be Swansea's first-choice right-back.

"I went on loan to gain experience and get some game-time so you can return and push for a spot in the team," the 22-year-old told the club's official website.

"Obviously Angel is going strong and doing very well, but I hope to be a part of things this season.

"I don't know if I will go out on loan again, but you never know what can happen during pre-season.

"Just look at Ben (Davies) - he was among the best players we had in pre-season last year, and he went on to have a great season. When Tayls got injured, Ben went straight in because he had a great pre-season and was fit, sharp and ready.

"That's what it is all about. You go into pre-season, get your fitness in and show the manager what you can do. Then it's up to the manager. So that's what I'm hoping to do."

S

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!
