Ryan Tunnicliffe: Joins Barnsley on loan

Tykes manager David Flitcroft admitted he was delighted to secure the services of Tunnicliffe, a player he has been tracking for a number of years.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a six-month loan spell at Peterborough last season and will now boost Flitcroft's options as he looks to guide the club away from the Championship relegation zone.

Tunnicliffe could make his debut in Barnsley's crucial clash with fellow strugglers Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Saturday.

But the positive news over Tunnicliffe was tempered somewhat by the news on Golbourne, who has undergone surgery on a knee injury.

Golbourne incurred the problem following a high tackle in Saturday's FA Cup win over MK Dons.

"I'll sit down with Scott at some point and we'll through his objectives for pre-season. It's a massive blow because his form has been incredible," Flitcroft told the club's official website.

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!
