West Brom have confirmed the departure of Callum McManaman to Sheffield Wednesday on loan until the end of the season.
MANCHESTER CLUBS WANT ALEX SANDRO
Manchester City and Manchester United are hoping to sign Juventus left-back Alex Sandro, according to reports. However, it is understood the Serie A champions are keen to prevent the Brazil international from leaving Turin and so will hand the 25-year-old a new deal in order to ward off interest from the Manchester duo in him.
ROMEU CONSIDERING BARCA RETURN
Southampton midfielder Oriol Romeu admits he would be forced to think about his future if he received interest from his former club Barcelona. “I am a cule [a Barcelona fan] and I will always be grateful to the club. I would assess it, of course," he said. “I would have to look at the conditions, [the reasons] why they want me and what I can contribute. Barca have the best midfielder that they could have, so I doubt that they would need someone in that position.”
Kelechi Iheanacho has the best minutes-per-goal ratio than any other Premier League striker EVER with a goal every 95.6 minutes.
BACCA WON'T LEAVE MILAN!
Carlos Bacca will not leave AC Milan in January, according to his team-mate Suso. Bacca is on West Ham's radar as Slaven Bilic looks to bolster his attacking options in the January transfer window. “I think so, I ask him and he tells me that he is very happy, I see him very happy. I tell you yes (he will stay), although we know that in football, everything changes from one moment to another. The truth is that the best thing for us is that he does not move," Suso told Marca.
MARTIAL LINKED TO SEVILLA
Sevilla want to sign Manchester United forward Anthony Martial on loan in January, according to reports. The La Liga outfit are on the hunt for a new attacker and have added Martial to their short list of targets. Sevilla's desire to snap up Martial on a short-term basis is boosted by the fact that he would not be cup-tied for the Champions League, which resumes in February.
NO LOAN FOR BATSHUAYI
Conte repeatedly said "no" when asked if Batshuayi would be allowed to go out on loan. "This player is a new player for Chelsea and to go on loan now is a defeat for the club and above all for me. We have to continue to work with him every day to try together to improve him."
SCHNEIDERLIN HEADING TO THE SERIE-A?
Inter Milan and Juventus both want to sign out-of-favour Man Utd midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin on loan when the transfer window reopens for business in January, according to reports. The France international, 27, only moved to Old Trafford last year, but has fallen down the pecking order at the Red Devils since boss Jose Mourinho took charge of the club last summer.
INTER WANT LUCAS
Liverpool will allow Lucas to leave the club on loan to Inter Milan this January, according to reports. The Brazilian has started only three Premier League games this season and Inter are on the lookout for a central midfielder to join on a temporary basis.
