BREAKING NEWS

One of the country’s highest profile football agents, David Manasseh has today been suspended from all football-related activity by the FA for three months.
Manasseh, managing director and co-founder of the Stellar Group, which looks after the likes of Gareth Bale, Luke Shaw and Jordan Pickford, is now suspended until December 31st and has been fined £50,000 after he was found to have signed up a young footballer at a Premier League club while he was still a minor.

‘WE NEEDED EXPERIENCE’

Former Carlisle boss Keith Curle’s experience was the key reason in Northampton’s decision to appoint him.
Northampton are fourth bottom in Sky Bet League Two after just one win and five losses from their first 10 games, including three defeats in their last four.
"In the position we are in we think we needed a manager with a lot of experience of League 2 and Keith has that," said Chairman Kelvin Thomas.
"He has managed around 400 games at this level and we think he is exactly who we need right now. He took over at Carlisle United in similar circumstances and did an excellent job, not only steering them out of trouble but developing a squad that was able to challenge for promotion in the following seasons.”

Northampton have appointed Keith Curle as manager.

‘I’LL NEVER MANAGE BARCA’

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is plotting Barcelona's downfall safe in the knowledge he will never manage the Spanish giants.
Pochettino is relishing the prospect of tackling Ernesto Valverde's side in Wednesday's Champions League group stage match at Wembley.
But he knows his past precludes him from ever taking charge at the Nou Camp, given he has been both a player and manager at rivals Espanyol.
He said: "It is more than understood [that I will never take over]. My path and that of Barcelona are different, opposite directions. Coaching there would be impossible."

JEDINAK ANNOUNCES AUSTRALIA RETIREMENT

Australia international Mile Jedinak has announced his retirement from international football in order to focus on his club career.
The 34-year-old won 79 caps for his country and represented them in three World Cups, twice as captain.
Jedinak, who also led Australia to victory in the 2015 Asian Cup on home soil, scored 20 goals for the Socceroos.
12:49

BARCA CHIEF RESPONDS TO POGBA RUMOURS

Barcelona chief Josep Maria Bartomeu has refused to rule out a move for Paul Pogba.
Barcelona are currently unwilling to pay over £100m, but Manchester United value the player at double that.
Asked about a potential January bid, Bartomeu told the Times: "I read these rumours - not just Pogba but a lot of players. Most of the teams don't want to sell their players. They want to grow.
"When you hear from agents that a certain player is on the market - and I am not saying that about this player, but generally - I will sometimes call the CEO and say 'Is it true you want to sell this player?'. Usually they say 'No way, not for sale' and that's the end of it."
12:44

NORTHAMPTON MANAGER UPDATE

Sky Sports News understands Northampton wish to appoint a new manager as quickly as possible, with ex-Carlisle boss Keith Curle currently the bookies favourite.
Ex-Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer and Kevin Nolan, who was last in charge at Notts County, are also short in the odds after the Cobblers sacked Dean Austin on Sunday following a 4-0 thrashing at Mansfield on Saturday.
Northampton are fourth-bottom of the bottom tier after one win and five defeats from their first 10 games, including three defeats in their last four.
12:07

AKINFEEV RETIRES FROM RUSSIA DUTY

Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev is retiring from international football after leading the national side as captain to this year's World Cup quarter-finals on home soil.
The 32-year-old CSKA Moscow player's acrobatic penalty saves captivated home crowds and helped Russia to their best tournament finish since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
"There is a beginning and an end to every story," Akinfeev was quoted as saying on CSKA's website. "My story with the national team has also reached its logical end."
11:36

ASHLEY: SHOW ME THE MONEY

On Saturday, Ashley watched Newcastle play at home for the first time in 16 months. He was abused by large sections of the crowd as Newcastle lost 2-0 to Leicester City.
Ashley has now watched two games in a row. His attendance at games is part of a strategy being driven by chief executive Lee Charnley to build bridges with fan, players and manager Rafael Benitez.
In another conciliatory move, Ashley is planning to take Benitez and his players to dinner this week. He wants to get everyone together to clear the air and address the problems at the club and demonstrate his support and commitment.
One source told us that until Kenyon makes an offer, it is a case of “a man with no money wanting to buy a football club”.
11:34

NEWCASTLE TAKEOVER UPDATE

Mike Ashley’s challenge to anyone who wants to buy Newcastle United is to show him the money.
The Newcastle owner and his representatives have never publicly named their price for the club, but it is understood it is unlikely to be sold for less than £300m.
It is also our understanding that aside from purchasing the club prospective buyers must also prove they have the funds to take the club forward.
Former Manchester United and Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon is trying to put together a deal to buy Newcastle.
With clubs such as Manchester United valued at more than £3bn, the onus is on any prospective buyer to make their best offer.
10:52

MARADONA: MESSI SHOULD RETIRE

Argentina legend Diego Maradona has told Lionel Messi that he should retire from international football once again.
Messi's future with his national side is uncertain with the Barcelona forward opting to take a break following a below-par World Cup campaign.
What would I tell Messi? To not come back any more. To retire,' the current coach of Mexican outfit Dorados told C larin on Sunday.
"The Under 15s lose and it is Messi's fault, the fixture list in Argentina puts Racing against Boca and Messi is to blame. He is always to blame.
"I would tell him: 'Don't go anymore, man'. Let's see if they can handle that. Let's see if they're really big men."
10:20

ZIDANE'S CALL TO JOSE

Jose Mourinho is worried about his Manchester United future, and a phone call from Zinedine Zidane has convinced him that club officials have sounded out the Frenchman as his replacement.
The Sun are reporting that the France and Real Madrid legend was concerned Mourinho would think he was plotting behind his back, so felt obliged to call him.
Zidane reportedly told Mourinho that his representatives were asked if he would be interested in the job.
10:01

NORTHAMPTON SEEKING NEW BOSS

Northampton Town parted company with Dean Austin on Sunday night, and chairman Kelvin Thomas has been speaking to the media this morning.
He says the club are looking for an experienced, ruthless manager with experience of League 2.

PEP WARNS SANE NOT TO LOSE FOCUS

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has warned Leroy Sane not to lose his focus again or he'll be axed.
The £37 million Germany international has suffered since being named PFA Young Player of the Year in May.
Sane appears to have put his problems to one side since becoming a father, starring in City's last three games, but Guardiola has sent out a warning.
“He has played really well but our profession is so demanding.
All my players, I want them to be focused. Do every single day what you have to do.
“When they do that there is no problem at all. When they don’t do that, they know what happens.”
08:26

TERRY ATTENDS SPARTAK GAME

John Terry is reportedly close to replacing Jody Morris as youth team coach at Chelsea, but the former England captain was back in Russia on Sunday to attend Spartak Moscow's 1-0 home defeat to Rostov.
Terry was spotted posing for pictures with Spartak fans weeks after calling off his move to the Russian outfit.
The 37-year-old had a medical and was close to finalising personal terms on a tax-free deal, in the region of £3million a year, but he pulled the plug on a move.

EVERTON PURSUE PEPE

Everton have joined Bayern Munich in their pursuit of Lille striker Nicolas Pepe.
The versatile forward has a growing list of admirers, having scored five foals in eight Ligue 1 games so far this season.
The Ivory Coast international has previously been linked with Barcelona, and the Daily Star are reporting that Everton are ready to step up their interest following a strong start to the campaign.
07:21

LIVERPOOL LEAD RAMSEY CHASE

Liverpool will lead the chase for Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey after having a summer enquiry for the Wales international knocked back.
The Daily Mirror are reporting that Jurgen Klopp has earmarked the midfielder as a potential target after he signalled his intention to leave the Emirates.
Ramsey was substituted in Arsenal's 2-0 win over Watford and was spotted at Le Golf National on Sunday for the culmination of the Ryder Cup.
06:38

SANCHEZ TO BE SOLD?

We start with news from Old Trafford, and reports this morning that Alexis Sanchez's Manchester United career might be coming to an end.
Jose Mourinho has lost faith in the Chilean forward and Sanchez was left out of the United matchday squad during the weekend's 3-1 defeat at West Ham.
The Daily Express are reporting that the 29-year-old will be allowed to leave the club in January, just 12 months after he was signed from Arsenal.

CARDIFF UPDATE

Victor Camarasa is having a medical at Cardiff ahead of a proposed loan from Real Betis, as Sky sources confirmed below - but there could yet be a late move for Harry Arter too.
That move would also be a loan, and the Bluebirds have approached Bournemouth over a move, but time is running out to get it over the line.
However, any deal for Marko Grujic of Liverpool looks to be dead in the water, with the Liverpool man seemingly set for a move abroad before the end of the month.

DEADLINE DAY ABROAD

Anthony Hagen is usually working for Sky Sports News on Deadline Day as a cameraman but, for the first time in a few years, he’s traded his camera and raincoat for a sun lounger in Crete! Of course, he’s still got an eye on the latest deals…

BOATENG TRAINING WITH BAYERN

Jerome Boateng is training with his team-mates at Bayern Munich’s training camp in Rottach-Egern this morning.
The Germany international did not play in last night’s friendly against FC Rottach-Egern and left before the full-time whistle - the game finished 20-2 to the Bundesliga champions.
08:49

HUDDERSFIELD UPDATE

The Terriers are still on the hunt for one more face, having enjoyed a busy summer after securing their second season in the Premier League in May.
Reporter Tim Thornton told Sky Sports News: "Isaac Mbenza is the player in question, a winger from Montpellier. He scored 10 goals in the French first division and we revealed yesterday he was in talks, and we understand those talks are progressing well. Most of the money they received for Tom Ince we expected to be reinvested in Mbenza. It would be quite a significant deal for Huddersfield.
"We also expect one out. Big German defender Michael Hefele, a popular figure here, he is in advanced talks with Nottingham Forest, and we expect that one to get done before the deadline today."
08:47

SAINTS SIGNINGS?

Jane Dougall has the latest from Southampton...
"It looks like there's going to be more departures rather than arrivals. Fulham were very impressed by Matt Targett during his loan at Craven Cottage, but I'm told Southampton want to keep hold of him.
“Watford have made an offer for James Ward-Prowse, but we understand that a loan deal would not interest Southampton.
"If there are to be any players in, it is probable that they will look to strengthen their strike force. A player who has been linked in the past couple of days is Danny Welbeck, who may want to leave Arsenal because he faces a battle for a first-team place, but Welbeck's wages could may well be a major issue.
"Liverpool's Danny Ings has again been linked with the club, but I'm told Southampton are not in for him."
08:43

BRIGHTON UPDATE

Sky Sports News reporter Roger Clarke has the latest on Brighton’s potential Deadline Day business...
"Brighton have been active in this transfer window, but the indications are that they might still be in the market for a central defender. The one they've been linked with throughout the summer is Liam Moore at Reading, but they haven't quite matched the valuation, even with the player handing in a transfer request.
"Brighton could turn their attention elsewhere, with Dan Burn at Wigan very much on their radar as well as Jack O'Connell at Sheffield United. Although they're happy with the business they've done, there might still be some more on deadline day. We'll hear from Chris Hughton around 1.30pm so he might fill us in with more details then."
08:42

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW

Chelsea haven't taken long to replace Thibaut Courtois' image outside Stamford Bridge. But how quickly can you get a big picture of Kepa printed up?!

PHANTOM SPLASHER UPDATE

It looks like the guilt has got too much to bear for the Crystal Palace splasher, who gave Sky Sports News reporter Michael Bridge a soaking (see 9.24) as he drove into training in Ruislip this morning.

KEPA PRICED AT £7.6M

08:32

NO BUSINESS AT UNITED?

Jose Mourinho's press conference has kicked off with the Manchester United manager being quizzed about any further additions to his squad. The Portuguese had this to say...
"The information I have is no. I’m not confident. The market closes today so there’s time at least for me to stop thinking about it. I will have to focus on the players I have in relation to the first three matches, because after Spurs there is an international break and I have a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare them better. I have to focus on the players that are available."
08:28

KEPA WANTS TO GO DOWN IN HISTORY

Kepa Arrizabalaga is targeting sustained success with Chelsea after moving to Stamford Bridge for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper.
The 23-year-old joined from Athletic Bilbao for £72.1m Wednesday after Chelsea met his buyout clause. Kepa could make his debut in Saturday's Premier League clash at Huddersfield.
Kepa told Chelsea's official app, The 5th Stand, on Thursday: "All clubs need to fight to win titles and what all players want is to win. So what I would like is to win more titles for the club.
"This is what I aspire to do. I would like to be remembered at this club when I leave years down the line as a goalkeeper that has helped the club win a lot of titles and gone down in history in that way."
08:25

REPORTER GETS SPLASHED!

Michael Bridge is at Crystal Palace's training ground chasing the latest transfers but got a little too close to the action and was left with wet trousers.

MAGUIRE CATEGORICALLY NOT FOR SALE

Sky Sports News’ man in Leicester, Rob Dorsett, has this encouraging message for Foxes fans...
“The potential arrival of two defenders at Leicester makes no difference to their stance on Harry Maguire, they do not want to sell him.
“As far as they are concerned, he is categorically not for sale. He will not be going anywhere in this window.
“That’s the message I’m getting from my sources close to the deal, but of course, there is a long while left in the window. How much are Manchester United prepared to bid?”
08:23

MADURO RETIRES

Former Ajax, Valencia and Sevilla midfielder Hedwiges Maduro has announced his retirement at the age of 33.
Maduro, who won 18 caps for the Netherlands and played under new Arsenal head coach Unai Emery in Spain, was a free agent having departed Cypriot club Omonia Nicosia in the summer.
He had offers to extend his career from clubs in the Eredivisie and elsewhere, but he now intends to take on a different role within the game.
“I’m very excited about the future knowing what will come,” he said in a statement. “In very short notice I can tell you more about it, but football is not yet rid of me.”
08:22

FOREST TO SIGN HUDDERSFIELD MAN

Huddersfield defender Michael Hefele is in advanced talks to join Nottingham Forest on a permanent deal today, according to Sky sources.
It is understood that fellow Championship side QPR had wanted him on a season-long loan.

SO... HOW DO YOU SAY KEPA?

Chelsea's Kepa shouldn't be the most difficult to say compared to soe of their signings down the years, but is it kee-pah, kep-per or something else?

CHELSEA OPEN THE EXIT DOOR

Kaveh Solhekol is live at Stamford Bridge for Sky Sports News and expects a number of outgoings from Chelsea on Deadline Day, with Kepa their latest likely incoming.
He told Sky Sports News: "We are expecting Chelsea to let quite a few players go. AC Milan are in advanced talks to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko. We think that will be a loan deal. A lot of clubs are interested in signing Danny Drinkwater – West Ham, Leicester and Everton.
"There’s also still a lot of interest in Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Crystal Palace would like to take him on loan again. Quite a few clubs want to take Kurt Zouma on loan and young defender Jay Dasilva looks like he will be moving to Bristol City."
08:12

COURTOIS: AN UNHAPPY ENDING

New Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois took to Facebook to post his thanks to Chelsea fans last night, but soon took down the message because of the reaction - an unhappy departure from Stamford Bridge, it seems.

NEWCASTLE: WILL ASHLEY SPLASH THE CASH?

Newcastle United's difficult summer has been well-documented, and even the loan arrival of Salomon Rondon hasn't papered over that following Rafa Benitez's comments recently. Could things improve with a good end to the transfer window?
Reporter Richard Gravestold Sky Sports News: "They’re light defensively, not least because they've lost Florian Lejeune for an extended period of time. In the short term, Rafa Benitiez needs to bolster his defence. One name linked overnight is the 22-year-old Brazilian defender from Barcelona Marlon Santos, possibly on a loan deal.
"He will have to get a work permit sorted, which could be tricky. There's other options that need looking at as well, with Rafa Benitez saying he ideally wants a left back and a No 10 before the window ends, but time is of the essence and whether he can get the players in that he wants at the price that's acceptable to Newcastle remains to be seen."
08:05

POSH SIGN TONEY

LIVERPOOL OUTGOINGS

More on Liverpool, where Danny Ings and Marko Grujic could be on their way out today. Simon Mignolet also has a chance of heading out.
Vinny O'Connor told Sky Sports News: "We are expecting outgoings at Liverpool. Grujic could potentially be going back to Cardiff on loan and there may be interest from Napoli for Simon Mignolet, but that doesn’t need to be done today. Chirivella has been linked with Celtic, Markovic could be moving to the continent and Origi and Ojo could leave as well.
"Danny Ings is expected to leave. He is looking for first-team football and Liverpool will let him leave. We understand there is interest from Crystal Palace, but there are a lot of reports of interest from Southampton. Our understanding is that there isn’t any interest at the moment and Southampton aren’t going in for him."
07:58

GRAYSON: BLACKPOOL JOB ‘VERY UNLIKELY’

Blackpool are looking for a new boss after Gary Bowyer left on Monday. It’s a club Simon Grayson knows very well as a former player and manager, and he was asked on Sky Sports News if he would be interested in a return.
He replied: “Not in this moment in time. I had a two-year deal at Bradford that I turned down in the summer, to take time out from the game.
“I’m enjoying the media stuff I’m doing at this moment, so I would say it’s very unlikely that I’ll be going to Blackpool.”
07:56

LIVERPOOL - FEKIR STILL A TARGET?

Vinny O'Connor told Sky Sports News where Liverpool sit in relation to the targets they've been chasing - Christian Pulisic and Nabil Fekir.
He said: "Fekir and Pulisic are two of the names that have been mentioned, but I have to say in all honesty Liverpool aren’t about to go back in for Fekir. That’s the information we’re getting at the minute.
"It also looks like there’s not a deal to be done to see Pulisic become a Liverpool player. However, we are used to seeing surprises sprung on Deadline Day."
07:56

BREAKING NEWS

Jordan Ayew will complete a season-long loan move to Crystal Palace from Swansea today, Sky Sports News understands.

WOLVES UPDATE

Our reporter at Molineux, Kirsty Edwards, has provided this update on Premier League new-boys Wolves.
She told Sky Sports News: “It’s been a pretty busy summer for Wolves, and we expect more business today.
“Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht is very much expected to sign here today and we’re expecting the move to go through barring any last-minute complications.
“Another one in the pipeline is Oleksandr Zinchenko, this one has been rumbling on for a while and Manchester City are willing to let him go for £16m but the player is reluctant to leave the Premier League champions.
“Wolves will try to persuade him today, and it seem he is surplus to requirements at City. It’s certainly one to keep an eye on.”

BOURNEMOUTH STILL ON HUNT

Bournemouth are still on the look-out for new signings, reporter Mark McAdam told Sky Sports News - but will Eddie Howe get his men?
McAdam said: “Bournemouth smashed their transfer record with the signing of Jefferson Lerma, but what will the club do today? We know in the past Eddie Howe is no stranger when it comes to making deadline day signings.
“The club are actively still looking to recruit, they are looking for a centre-back or a striker. As things stand, they are no closer to bringing anyone in, but they haven’t shut up shop as far as this transfer window is concerned.
“One of the big questions though is who is going to be leaving the club? There’s speculation about Jack Simpson, and there are two or three clubs interested in central midfielder Harry Arter. As things stand, there’s been no significant movement.”
07:38

'CLUBS WILL BE KEEN ON ROSE'

Simon Grayson is surprised Tottenham could be willing to let Danny Rose leave and expects more interest in the full-back.
07:38

MAGUIRE OR BOATENG?

Now Yerry Mina is off the cards following his move to Everton (see 8.20), there's some new updates on their pursuit of Jerome Boateng and Toby Alderweireld.
Sky Sports News understands the Manchester United board would prefer to sign Maguire, although Leicester have made clear he is not for sale - while Jose Mourinho would prefer Bayern Munich's Boateng.
07:37

CARDIFF CLOSE ON CAMARASA

Cardiff are working on a loan deal for Real Betis midfield Victor Camarasa, Sky Sports News understands.
Camarasa can play all positions in midfield but is most effective at No 8 or No 10.
The 24-year-old Spanaird did not feature in Betis recent friendly last Saturday.
07:32

SPOTTED: COOKIES

No sign of any players at the Emirates yet but Sky Sports News' Gail Davis had made a delicious signing of her own. We're not expecting this deal to last long...

MINA CLOSE TO EVERTON

Barcelona defender Yerry Mina is close to completing his move to Everton, according to Sky sources.

Batshuayi has decided to leave Chelsea this summer and wants to move to Valencia, who are keen to sign him on loan.
The 24-year-old Belgium international has also attracted interest from Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund, where he spent the second half of last season on loan.

REMEMBER THE NAME?

If you're trying to remember where you first heard of Daniel Arzani, the 19-year-old impressed off the bench for Australia in all three of their World Cup group games. And now he's continued Man City's recent forays down under - after they bought Aaron Mooy from the same club two years ago.

'LET POGBA BE FREE SPIRIT’

Stephen Warnock says Manchester United must give Paul Pogba a free role in midfield as he weighs up what defensive signings they might make.
06:50

DEMBELE STAYING PUT?

Reported Arsenal target Ousmane Dembele says he is staying at Barcelona this summer.
The France international, who joined Barca in a big-money move from Borussia Dortmund last summer, had a mixed first season at the Camp Nou and has seen competition for places increase even further following the arrival of Malcom from Bordeaux.
Dembele has been tipped to move away this summer, with Arsenal touted as a suitor, but he has revealed he intends to remain at the La Liga champions.
Speaking during a live chat on Twitch, he said: “Yes, I'm going to stay - and I'm ready for the Spanish Super Cup match against Sevilla.”
06:45

ANOTHER ONE AT ARSENAL?

Gail Davis has provided this update on Arsenal’s potential Deadline Day business.
She told Sky Sports News: “Arsenal have done the bulk of their business early. Unai Emery has said he wants to bring in at least one more player, and that is likely to be a defender. They’ve got Laurent Koscielny out injured until December, so they’re a little bit short there...”
06:40

BELLAMY: UNITED ARE DESPERATE

Speaking on last night’s episode of The Debate, Craig Bellamy criticised Manchester United’s fruitless search for defensive reinforcements.
“They’ve got themselves into a position now where they are desperate. They need to get a centre-back in,” he said.
“They seem every unsure of the players he has brought in before in Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof. He isn’t convinced by them.
“I just don’t know. If I was an owner I’d be thinking you’ve had a lot of money for these players, you certainly don’t fancy them and now you want a lot of money for someone else.
“I think Manchester United are a little bit desperate at this present moment which is not like Manchester United and certainly not like Mourinho.”

‘UNITED MUST STRENGTHEN’

Former Liverpool and Blackburn full-back Stephen Warnock says he expects Manchester United to have a busy transfer deadline day, with Jose Mourinho looking to bring in at least one new centre-back.
Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng and Yerry Mina have all been linked with moves to Old Trafford, and Warnock wouldn’t be surprised if more than one comes through the door in the next 10 hours.
Warnock told Sky Sports News: “Maguire is not only a very good ball player, but he’s also a very good defender. He proved that during the World Cup.
"It wouldn’t surprise me if they try to bring two of them in. They do need to get stronger, and I’m sure they’ll do that today.”
06:23

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR ROY?

WHAT'S HAPPENING AT MAN UTD?

Fraser Dainton is live at Manchester United's Carrington training ground for Sky Sports News, with expectations of moves for the club by the end of the window - or you can be sure Jose Mourinho won't be happy.
He said: "There are three names in particular that have been mentioned consistently as Manchester United try to get a defender in. First of all, we heard a lot about Jerome Boateng yesterday, although we understand that would only be on a loan deal.
"Another is Toby Alderweireld at Spurs, who has been consistently linked as well. Money is the stumbling block there. Harry Maguire is another player Manchester United are very interested in. We understand two bids have been made for the Leicester defender, the second for around £60m.
"Money is available for Jose Mourinho to spend, but the club are not keen, we understand, to be spending over the odds for particular players. It could well be a game of cat and mouse now."
06:13

MORE ON SPURS RADAR?

It's not just Grealish who seems to be interesting Spurs though. Tottenham and Arsenal have both been reportedly looking to bring Norwegian midfielder Sander Berge to London, with the player's agent said to be in the capital finalising a move.
The 20-year-old, who plays for Genk, made his Norway debut in 2017 and is in the mould of current Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele - who could yet leave the club today.
06:09

SPURS LATEST

Sky Sports News' Paul Gilmour is live at Spurs' Enfield training ground with the latest on what they could be up to today - and there's a familiar name they are still in the market for.
He said "The man near the top of Spurs’ list is Jack Grealish. Aston Villa have told Tottenham that he is not for sale, but we understand the player wants to go.
"Add into the mix, Aston Villa have signed a similar type of player to Grealish in John McGinn from Hibernian. All of a sudden it means it has still got the potential to go through today. Certainly talks will continue over the next few hours or so."
06:06

A QUIET DAY FOR SOME...

One place you can rule out any big arrivals, it seems, is Burton Albion. The League One club aren't expecting much to happen at the Pirelli Stadium today. No wild Lionel Messi spottings at East Midlands airport then.

SCHALKE INTERESTED IN ROSE LOAN

Schalke are in talks with Tottenham over the loan signing of Danny Rose, according to Sky sources.
Along with Schalke, Rose has been given permission to talk to other unnamed clubs over a season-long loan move.
Earlier this month, Sky sources reported Tottenham would listen to offers for Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembele.
Rose, 28, has faced an uncertain future since criticising the club's ambition and wage structure in 2017, for which he subsequently apologised.
05:36

BIG NEWS FROM BURNLEY?

Burnley have been tweeting early this morning as the clock ticks down on Deadline Day - but it's ahead of their first overseas European game since 1967 at the Fatih Terim Stadium against Istanbul Basaksehir.
The Clarets have already signed Matej Vydra from Derby and tied Ben Mee down to a new deal, so it could be a quiet Thursday for Sean Dyche. But as we've learned down the years, never say never on Deadline Day.

COURTOIS AGREES REAL MOVE

Thibaut Courtois is getting his dream move to Real Madrid in a deal that will see Mateo Kovacic join Chelsea on loan for the season.
The Belgium international only had a year left on his deal at Stamford Bridge and has been absent from training this week as he looked to push through before the transfer window ended.
Courtois' move to Real Madrid is now only formalities away from completion.
A statement from Chelsea read: "Chelsea and Real Madrid have tonight agreed terms for the permanent transfer of Thibaut Courtois subject to the agreement of personal terms and passing a medical.
"Subject to the completion of the deal Mateo Kovacic will join the Blues on a season-long loan."
05:17

BIG MOVERS TODAY?

There's going to be some big money spent on Deadline Day this year, if the likes of Tottenham, Manchester United and others are going to get what they want - here's some of the biggest possible moves which are in the offing:
Those are the big ones, but there's a whole host of other names in the mix - and, I'm sure, more to follow out of the ether.
  • Harry Maguire - Manchester United have retained an interest in the England defender for some while, and had a £60m bid turned down already. Leicester, however, remain determined that even a world-record bid will not be enough to tempt them to sell.
  • Jerome Boateng - if that one doesn't come off, Manchester United are also keen on Jerome Boateng, with Sky sources telling us the Germany defender would like to move to Old Trafford.
  • Danny Rose - Tottenham are in talks with Schalke over a possible loan move for the England left-back, with other clubs also expressing an interest in a temporary move.
  • Jack Grealish - Spurs have had a bid rejected for the Aston Villa midfielder, but sources have told Sky Sports he is "very disappointed" he is not allowed to move - having been promised he could leave at the start of the Transfer Window, before Villa's new owners took over.
05:16

CHELSEA SIGN KEPA

There’s only one place to start this morning and that’s with a look back at Chelsea’s historic capture of Kepa Arrizabalaga yesterday.
The Blues broke the world transfer record for a goalkeeper, agreeing a £71.6m deal with Athletic Bilbao for the 23-year-old Spain international.
The fee surpasses the previous record, which was set only last month when Liverpool paid £66m for Allison.
Chelsea have put their faith in Kepa, handing him a seven-year contract at Stamford Bridge through to 2025.
05:08

BRYAN EYES PREM OVER VILLA

More on that story involving Bristol City's Joe Bryan, whois having a medical at Fulham this morning, according to Sky sources.
The Whites have agreed a deal with the Robins to sign the 24-year-old left-back - who looks like he could turn his back on Aston Villa, who agreed a fee for him yesterday.
Bryan is understood to prefer a move to the Premier League.

Issue #8 - Bristol Rovers - Blood, Sweat and Tears? Luck, Momentum and Beers! (July 2015 - October 2015)

Issue #7
So we come into another year, having won League 1 and the Johnstones Paint Trophy last season.
July 2015
Another slow month, enough to tell you that I have budget £700k and wage cap set at £2.5k, though we've agreed with the bored that we 're-evaluate the cap based off our position come January.
Growth Report:
Team Report:
Keeper
Bentley, though he will be subjected to big bids once again, will be number 1 again. Bruno arrives and becomes back up, Kelly will be loan listed as my star of the future looks for experience.
Right Back
Same duo as last season with Fish and Tavernier.
Centre Backs
The same pairing that is really getting a name for itself in Parkes and Goldson will continue in the first team, McChyrstal and Blake remain on the bench.
Left Back
Exactly the same as last season in Taylor and Brown.
Midfielders
The midfield remains largely unchanged from last season, Pringle's arrival on pre-contract will put pressure on Obadeyi down the left, while pushing Momo out entirely.
Striker
Lulli is dropped to the bench, as his former team mate Silvinho arrives at 72 rated and with better finishing. Though the duo look like a strong front line. Brunt's contract expired as he wanted a squad role th st I just couldn't offer him.
Transfers
Chunks ended up leaving the club, Real Bet is agreeing to pay £2m for the attacking midfielder, more than 4x the amount we paid Crewe for his signature.
Obadeyi joined Aneke in leaving as he completed a £950k transfer to Middlesbrough.
Bentley was once again subjected to a number of bids, but once again no one was willing to match our asking price resulting in a "Disallow all offers".
Thus ending the transfers out.
In terms of replacing the departed midfielders we already had Pringle prepared to play LM, we looked at Cuvelliar of Port Vale was targeted but they wanted £4.5m - so I decided to be organic and promote Aussie Bailey Appiah from the academy, the LM can play CAM and is probably better suited to the role.
Thus ending July.
August 2015
August saw the hiring of 3 better scouts and subsequent networking as we send them out to Finland, Greece and China.

Going into the season we have been told that our goal is to finish mid-table, thankfully - my squad is a year behind my projected plans.
After a month of several shocks and surprises sees us sneak into 4th place on 10 points, one of 5 teams from 3rd to 8th to have this total.
Michu has scored 5 goals for Sunderland at this stage, to lead the Golden Boot.
Rhodes of Blackburn is on 4 assists putting him 2 clear of anyone else.
Kuzsczak, Ustari and Darlow have all kept 3 clean sheets a piece to top the Golden Gloves run.
September 2015
Youth Academy prospect Barry Quinn, another found by our lucky 1* Irish scout (who also found Ian Kelly), has settled at 61-65 and 84-90 potential at 15 years old - could be another surprise and lucky success?
Growth Report:
Results:
Note: 12 of last season's heroes agree new deals with significant pay rises, but Lulinha and Fish both feel they're being underpaid already - and that our new offers didn't match their needs.
We manage to maintain 4th place despite two defeats - we are on 19 points, one less than 3rd place Burnely and one above 5th placed wolves.
McClean is now the top scorer on 7, though Silvi is finding his feet in England joining second place on 6 goals.
Pringle has joined Rhodes on 4 assists to top the charts.
Kuzsczak and Ustari have both moved onto 5 clean sheets to leave Darlow behind.
October 2015
Growth Report:
Results:
So with a perfect month put under us I am announced us the manager of the month, the team is in 3rd place just 2 points off of top duo Sunderland and Wigan - the latter of whom we play in the first game of November, giving us a perfect chance to get into the automatic promotion spots.
Silvinho is two clear of McClean (10) in the race for Golden Boot, hitting 12 so far in his first English season.
Pringles now tops the assists charts on 8, he's the favourite for it this season after Jordan Rhodes was ruled out for 4 months - sad news for a striker I would like to sign if I ever got the money together.
Al-Habsi (7) has moved ahead of the previous 3 leading keepers to get ahead of the Golden Gloves - Bentley joining them in 2nd on 6.
And so thanks for reading, let's hope I can maintain this surprise run to get into the premier league already!
