Thomas: Doing well at Blackpool

The 25-year-old, who spent a spell earlier this season on loan at Portsmouth, has been reunited with Michael Appleton at Blackpool on loan until New Year's Day.

"He has gone on loan until January and there isn't anything else in place. When he comes back, it will be up to Eddie to decide what happens," Mitchell told the Bournemouth Daily Echo.

"If anybody were to come in for him, I would have to sit down with Eddie to put a value on him and it would be for us to look at what would be feasible to let him go. We are not in the habit of buying players to just give them away.

"If Blackpool or any other club were to want him, it would be up to them to come to us but there is no way we would let him go for nothing."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

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.
