Lee Grant: Handed award by supporters

Grant, who has 11 clean sheets to his name this term, took home the overall award after winning favour with four of the Clarets' nine individual supporters' clubs.

Three chose to honour free-scoring frontman Austin, also the recipient of the goal of the season gong for his superb winner at Charlton, while skipper Jason Shackell and winger Ross Wallace were the picks in Earby and Rossendale respectively.

Kieran Trippier received a special recognition award to mark his inclusion in the PFA's Championship team of the season.

Addressing those in attendance at the end of the evening, Burnley boss Sean Dyche said: "I've been learning since I've been here about the culture and the history of the club, and the supporters - and the demands of the supporters

I must say. It's an interesting journey but we do appreciate and value the support."

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.

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!
