Darren Ferguson: Hopeful of Gayle staying

Gayle was borrowed by Peterborough from League Two side Dagenham last month with a view to a permanent move.

And Ferguson remains confident he will get his man despite the 22-year-old scoring his fourth goal in three games during Saturday's shock 2-1 win over Championship leaders Cardiff.

"At this rate, I'll struggle to keep hold of him," Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

"It would be a brave man to try and take him off us now. I'm sure he'll stay with us.

"He listens. He picks up things quickly, which is always a sign of a good player.

"He's going to be a really good player, the boy.

"I think him and Lee Tomlin are looking a partnership.

"The only slight criticism I'd have is they should have finished Cardiff off earlier."

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.

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!
