Here's more on teenage winger Connor Mahoney's move from Accrington Stanley to neighbours Blackburn Rovers. Accrington boss James Beattie has confirmed he would be keen to bring Mahoney back to the club on loan at some stage.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has lost captain Steven Gerrard and striker Daniel Sturridge to injury of late, but he insists he won't be diving head first into the transfer market for replacements in January. Liverpool signed Philippe Coutinho and Sturridge in the last January window, but Rodgers won't buy for the sake of it.
Some news from Accrington Stanley, who have confirmed that 16-year-old winger Connor Mahoney has joined Blackburn Rovers. Mahoney has made six appearances for Stanley this season and a compensation package has been agreed between the two teams under the terms of the Elite Player Performance Plan.
St Johnstone midfielder David Robertson has been told he will be released by the club next month. Robertson has been informed he will not be getting a new deal when his current contract expires in January.
HR: "Cesar needs to be playing and he wants to play in the World Cup. Something might come up in January. A few clubs are interested."
West Ham United made an approach to sign Real Madrid forward Jese on loan in the January transfer window, according to reports in Spain. However, Real coach Carlo Ancelotti has turned down the request as he feels Jese, who has also been linked with Bayer Leverkusen, will be part of his plans in the second half of the season.
According to reports in the Gazzetta dello Sport this morning, Inter Milan official Marco Branca has been to London to talk with Chelsea about a deal to sell Fredy Guarin to the Premier League club. Inter would then use the money to buy either Ezequiel Lavezzi or Jeremy Menez from Paris St Germain. However, according to the Daily Telegraph, Inter want to use Guarin as a means of persuading Manchester United manager David Moyes to sell Javier Hernandez.
Alan Pardew has warned any suitors of Papiss Cisse it will take a big fee to land him in January. A number of clubs from abroad are reported to be monitoring the Newcastle striker's situation but Pardew insists they are in no rush to sell.
I am sure that, come January, a lot of teams will be looking at our situation but they'd have to spend a lot of money to get him (Cisse). I would suggest to any club, just look at Mike Ashley's record of selling players. Would it cost a hell of a lot? Correct.
We've taken a look through the papers to bring you some of the transfer speculation making the headlines:
- DAILY MIRROR: Manchester United are in no rush to open contract talks with Wayne Rooney - despite Chelsea's renewed interest in him.
- THE SUN: Swansea City could move for Aston Villa keeper Shay Given to provide cover for Michel Vorm.
- DAILY EXPRESS: Chelsea have enquired about the availability of Monaco's Radamel Falcao, as rumours circulate that the Colombian doesn't get along with boss Claudio Ranieri.
- DAILY STAR: Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are all in the hunt for Real Madrid's former Kop star Xabi Alonso, who is out of contract in the summer.
Reports may claim that Chelsea are plotting a move for Luke Shaw, but Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino insists the left-back is 'not for sale'. Shaw has also been reported to be a target for Manchester United and Tottenham, but Pochettino is standing firm.
They can show their interest. That's not something we control. But in this individual case he is not a player we are willing to sell. In a sporting manner, he is not for sale.
Manchester United manager David Moyes was at Atletico Madrid's UEFA Champions League tie with Porto on Wednesday night, with plenty of talk suggesting he was there to watch Spanish midfielder Koke. However, The Sun claims that Moyes was keen to take a look at Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala, who has been regularly linked with a move to the Premier League.
- Blues back in for Falcao?
- Alonso ready for Prem return?
- Casillas to solve City's keeper crisis?
- Two-way tussle for Saints' Shaw?
- Rhodes on Palace's radar?
Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has warned clubs off moving for Luke Shaw, insisting the full-back is not for sale.
