Ryan Taylor: Signs 18-month deal with Portsmouth

Taylor, 25, has signed an 18-month deal with Pompey after he was released by Bristol City.

He told the club website: "I'm very happy to be here and I just want to start playing some games now.

"I've been sat on the bench at Bristol City and asked the manager if I could leave. He said yes and when I heard that Pompey were interested it was an easy decision.

"It's a club with a massive fanbase and I can't wait to show the supporters just what I can do."

Jervis is back at Fratton Park, subject to international clearance, having had a brief spell on loan with Pompey last term.

The 22-year-old striker was a free agent after leaving Turkish side Elazigspor and has signed a contract until the end of the season.

He said: "I'm delighted to sign at last. I can't wait to get out onto the pitch and start playing for Pompey again."

Former Reading full-back Shorey, 32, has also signed a deal until the end of the current campaign.

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!
