Cheick Diabate: Extends Bordeaux stay

The 25-year-old has been with the club since 2007 and firmly established himself as a key man last season, with 18 goals in all competitions.

A statement on the club's official website read: "The club is happy to announce the prolongation of Cheick Diabate's contract. The Mali international is now linked to Les Girondins until 2016.

"It is good news for Les Girondins, who can now count on their centre-forward for several more years."

Diabate came through the club's youth system and had spells on loan with Ajaccio in 2008-09, scoring 14 goals in Ligue 2, and less productively with Nancy the following season.

The 6ft 4in frontman has scored 32 goals in 79 games for the club despite 36 of those appearances coming from the substitutes' bench. Last season's haul came in only 21 starts and he was the leading scorer in the Coupe de France, with six goals in four games.

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!
