Gary Rowett: Delighted by early progress

The Brewers have already recruited three players, with Shane Cansdell-Sherriff, George Taft and John Mousinho all moving to the Pirelli Stadium. The League Two club have also agreed a fee with Stevenage for Lucas Akins and are currently trying to sort personal terms with the forward.

Rowett told the club's official website that although there is still much to be done, Burton's early progress is encouraging:

He said: "We're really pleased so far. We've had a list of player we've wanted to bring in and we've spoken about how we can push things forward next season.

"The players that we've brought in are good players and a mix of experience and potential. Shane was an obvious one to bring in and it was a no-brainer if we could do a deal. He was happy to come which tells you how much he's enjoyed it here."

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!
