James McFadden: Could be set to sign a new deal at Motherwell

McFadden rejoined Motherwell in February on a short-term contract until the end of the season, having played for the club earlier in his career.

It had been unclear whether he would look to move on in the summer, but he has travelled with McCall's squad to their pre-season training camp in Spain and talks now need to take place about a possible new agreement.

"I'm cautiously optimistic James will join us. I'm pleased he's here. I'm hopeful we can get something sorted out when we get back," McCall said in the Daily Record.

"I said if he wanted to return and be involved in European games, he had to be here with us.

"I'd think it would be a similar situation to last season when someone pays his wages.

"The offer has been made, they just need to sit down and tie up the length of contract."

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!
