The 21-year-old's current deal is set to expire at the end of the season, but he has worked his way into Stuart Gray's first-team plans since returning from a successful loan spell at Plymouth.

Lavery scored his first Championship goals on his return to Hillsborough, netting twice in January's 6-0 demolition of Leeds, and he has been involved ever since.

The Northern Ireland under-21 international would be free to leave Wednesday in the summer, but he is hopeful of extending his stay in South Yorkshire.

"My representatives are speaking to Wednesday over getting it extended," Lavery told the Sheffield Star.

"I am leaving it to them. I am not getting involved at all. That's for them to work out.

"I would be happy to stay. The club have been good with me. They have helped me with my development.

"I've just got to keep doing what I am doing at the moment. I am putting in good performances.

"I just need to keep playing well and hopefully let my football do the talking and go from there."

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!
