Michael Laudrup has made several shrewd signings since taking charge at the Liberty Stadium and has been linked with a winter swoop for 25-year-old forward Aspas.

Celta coach Paco Herrera stated in December that the club had no intention of letting such a key player leave, and Aspas says he will stay at least until the end of the season.

"I have read many things saying I was going to go in the winter, but they are not true," he explained.

"Already it has been said several times that at least I will be here until June 30, then we'll see what's best for the club and for me."

Aspas, who scored twice in a 3-1 victory over Real Valladolid on Sunday, has come through the ranks at Celta and still has four-and-a-half years remaining on his current deal.

"I have been at Celta 17 years and I am very proud to belong to this club," he said.

"Now I'm very calm because I have a contract until 2017."

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!
