Teenagers Crawford, 18, and Shankland, 17, and 22-year-old Sinclair will all travel to England on Monday and will stay until Thursday.

Ayr, who are a part-time club, confirmed that the trio would be due back by next Saturday ahead of their game at Brechin City.

Honest Men boss Mark Roberts told the Ayrshire Post: "We've also had clubs such as Bolton, Crystal Palace and Charlton at our games this season and it underlines that the Academy is doing a great job.

"Crawford and Sinclair are there on merit while Shankland is going due to his reputation since a boy.

"It's a great chance to train and learn. They are all aged under 23 so if anything comes from it, there could be good money for Ayr."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
