Despite also signing a new contract at Carrow Road, the England Under-21 keeper will return to the Lilywhites having spent the latter part of last season on loan at Deepdale.

"Declan was very impressive last year and it's fantastic that Norwich have allowed us to have him for a season-long loan," Grayson said in an official club statement.

"I think it's a testament to the football club that Norwich were keen to get this deal done as quickly as possible with a player that they think highly of."

Rudd made 15 appearances during his time with the club last season, keeping seven clean sheets in the process, and is excited at the prospect of spending an entire campaign with the League One club.

"As soon as last season finished I wanted to get a deal done to come back for a full season," the 22-year-old said.

"When I was away with the England Under-21s I was constantly in contact to get things sorted and thankfully I got back and two days later it was sorted and it is great to have it done and I can't wait to get started now."

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!
