Darren Ferguson: Waiting on news of Jack Payne's injury

Payne, on loan from Gillingham, was forced off shortly before half-time at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday with suspected ankle ligament damage.

The 21-year-old midfielder is set for a scan but Posh boss Darren Ferguson already feels Payne may have made his last appearance for the club this season.

"It looks a bad one. We will organise a scan but we think he's damaged his ligaments and if that's the case he will struggle to play again this season," said Ferguson following the game in West Yorkshire.

Peterborough have endured some bad luck with loan players this season with Scott Wootton, Saido Berahino, Alex Pritchard and Davide Petrucci having all suffered long-term injuries during stays at London Road.

However, Tottenham midfielder Pritchard returned to the Posh squad at the weekend following two months out with an ankle problem.

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!
