Manager Neil Lennon has been open in his policy of identifying cheap youngsters and moving them on for a profit, netting a £6m windfall last summer for Ki Sung-Yueng, a player signed 20 months earlier for £2.1m.

However, the Hoops have turned down two multi-million pound offers from Norwich and Hull City for striker Gary Hooper in recent weeks and have yet to sanction the exit of Victor Wanyama, who is believed to be a £10m target for Southampton.

Ledley said: "I don't think we are a selling club or anything like that. I just think the gaffer has done some great business over the years.

"He has looked into youth and brought guys in and trained them well. That's what happens in football.

"If people leave, then they leave. It happens at every single club. Hopefully we can keep hold as many players as we can.

"Hopefully the club can sort Victor and Gary out and get them new deals. I know they are both happy at the club and I hope they can stay here for many years to come."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
