Crystal Palace are said to have turned their attention to the commanding centre-half after failing to reach an agreement for Tottenham Hotspur’s Michael Dawson.

An £8million deal has been mooted, with Palace aware that they will have to pay a premium for a man who caught the eye in Hull’s Premier League and FA Cup campaigns last season.

The likes of Everton, Sunderland and Newcastle United are also said to be closely monitoring Davies’ situation as they search for proven defensive reinforcements.

Hull are, however, adamant that the 29-year-old, who has two years remaining on his current contract, is going nowhere.

Bruce is readying his troops for a hectic 2014/15 campaign that will bring domestic and European competition and is looking to add to his ranks, not deplete them.

He said in The Sun: “Curtis won’t be going anywhere. He’s under contract here.

“No matter what happens, he’ll be with us when the season gets underway, that’s for sure.”

S

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!
