Lavery suffered the injury during Sunday's pre-season friendly against South Yorkshire neighbours Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium and the 21-year-old forward faces around two months on the sidelines.

"They call it like a car crash injury. We thought it might be ACL, but it's not. It's going to be a couple of months," Owls boss Stuart Gray said.

Gray also added that Lavery will see a specialist on Tuesday afternoon and that he hopes surgery will not be necessary.

Lavery spent time on loan with Plymouth last season, scoring three goals in eight appearances for the Sky Bet League Two club.

He has played 35 senior games so far in his fledgling career, including 10 starts for Wednesday.

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!
