The 20-year-old played the last 15 minutes of Saturday's 0-0 draw at Newcastle United and has also earned rave reviews for his pre-season performances.

"Ravel is an emerging talent and we've very pleased with what he did in pre-season for us," Allardyce said.

"He is an exceptional talent who we hope we can nurture into the fray. Some people might say sticking a player on at that late stage might be risky but we've got to do it at some stage.

"We can see the talent and the only way to do it is to get him in the first team and get some minutes on the board.

"He'll play against Cheltenham and we'll see how he does and keep an eye on him.

"He's had a good season at Birmingham and he's brought that back with him in pre-season and it's great to see that talent is emerging."

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!
