The 21-year-old forward only moved to Tannadice over the summer, following his release by NAC Breda.

He has made an immediate impact in Scottish football, netting seven goals in 12 appearances in all competitions.

His efforts have helped to make him a firm fans' favourite, and McNamara is aware of the need to tie such talents down long-term.

Ciftci's current deal is due to run until 2015, but he will be offered the opportunity to extend that agreement on fresh terms.

McNamara told the Daily Record: "I'd be keen to sit down and talk to Nadir about extending things.

"He's done exceptionally well in his short time here and has great attributes."

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!
