James Coppinger: Looking for a new club

The 33-year-old has revealed that Rovers are not able to offer him a new deal following the collapse of John Ryan and Louis Tomlinson's takeover and he now begins the search for a new club.

Coppinger told the South Yorkshire Times: "I'm no longer at Doncaster Rovers. Without doubt I've played my last game for the club - not through my decision.

"They [the owners] have made their decision and I respect that. I've not received an offer from them and I'm looking forward to a new challenge.

"I can totally understand what's happened with the takeover and the chairman [John Ryan] and the owners. They want to go down a different route.

"They don't want to spend the money on the players and I respect that decision.

"I've got to look forward now. I cannot wait to get a new club now, I've still got a lot to offer."

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!
