Portsmouth are weighing up a move for Atletico Madrid's Brazilian midfielder Thiago Motta, but could face competition from Everton.
Aston Villa are set to abandon their £9m bid for James Milner unless Newcastle are prepared to sell the midfielder - who is demanding a new contract - immediately.
Middlesbrough will resist any offers - thought to be about £14m - from Liverpool for winger Stewart Downing.

Manchester City are tracking Wolves midfielder Karl Henry after being impressed by his outstanding form for the Championship side.
Sunderland are keen to sign Spain left-back Mariano Pernia from Atletico Madrid. The club may be forced to sell because of cash problems.
Celtic manager Gordon Strachan may wait until January to sign Alexander Madlung from Vfl Wolfsburgand instead recruit a defensive midfield player before the close of the current transfer window.

Espanyol have accepted a £12m offer from Everton for winger Albert Riera, but the player's preferred move is to Liverpool.
