The winger has been an ever-present for Wolves since sealing his loan switch to Molineux, making six appearances.

But Solbakken's men have been winless in that time, slipping to 15th in the Championship table, and the Norwegian manager has made it clear that Pennant is not guaranteed a place in his first team.

He said: "He's going in the right direction but he must also be aware some games will be for him and some maybe won't.

"He came here not having played in the Championship for a long time. He played three games quite quickly and maybe he's struggling with a lack of match rhythm, and it's not easy to come in when there are big expectations.

Solbakken added: "He doesn't cover as much grass as some. But he's had some good moments."

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!
