The 21-year-old Cameroonian has been training with Rovers for the past month and has signed a two-year deal after impressing in pre-season friendlies against Wrexham and Portimonense.

Songo'o, who is the younger brother of former Sheffield Wednesday loanee Franck, started his career in Spain before moving to MLS side Sporting Kansas City, where he was released from this summer.

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer has made strengthening his back line a major priority and adds Songo'o to a defensive pool including fellow new signings Tommy Spurr, Matt Kilgallon and Todd Kane.

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!
