Alexander Buttner: Man Utd defender has been linked with Celtic

The Scottish Premiership champions are looking to strengthen their squad after reaching the group stages of the Champions League.

Manager Neil Lennon is understood to be keen to sign Holland Under-21 international Buttner for the rest of the season.

The left-back has failed to hold down a regular first-team role at Old Trafford since arriving from Vitesse Arnhem in 2012, making just 13 appearances.

Meanwhile, Tomlin has also reportedly attracted interest from a number of other clubs, including Crystal Palace and West Ham.

The 24-year-old is top scorer at Posh with six goals in League One this season, but the player is understood to be keen on plying his trade at a higher level.

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!
