Gareth Southgate: "There's no hiding from the fact that there are some players here who don't want to be here, but we either have to find buyers for them or win them round and convince them that this is the place to be.

"I'm not where I'd like to be in terms of the squad for the season, but I've been really pleased with the attitude and the performance of those who are here and involved."

"I think there's a chance Tuncay will play.

"He's not been involved with any of the pre-season games, but I will certainly keep him in mind for team selection.

"There are still one or two things to think about in terms of my final team as we do have a few slight knocks, but we'll see how they come along over the next 24 hours or so.

"Jeremie Aliadiere has suffered a bout of sickness, while Gary O'Neil and Julio Arca had slight knocks and are therefore slightly doubtful."

 they have good players who will want to get the ball down and play."
