McGinty moved to Old Trafford from Charlton in 2009 and has taken in previous spells with Morecambe, Oxford and Carlisle to earn Under-19 honours with the Republic of Ireland.

Rovers boss Ronnie Moore stated the 19-year-old's versatility made him an appealing recruit.

"I'm really pleased to bring Sean in from Manchester United," said Moore on his club's official website. "He can play left-back or centre-back and gives us extra options in our defence.

"Our chief scout Dave Philpotts has watched him play for United's Under-21s and he's a big, strong lad who likes to get forward.

"Manchester United rate him highly and I'm sure he'll be a good addition to our squad. I'd like to thank Sir Alex Ferguson for allowing Sean to join us."

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!
