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.

Daily Star

Portsmouth are bracing themselves for an £8m bid for Nico Kranjcar from Hamburg, and Harry Redknapp may be pressurised to sell the midfielder.

Daily Mirror

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.

Meanwhile, Strachan's move for West Bromwich Albion left-back Paul Robinson has stalled over wage demands.

IFK Gothenburg defender Matthias Bjarsmyr claims he is a target for Rangers.

The Guardian

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

Midfielder Stephane Mbia could yet end up at Everton, if the Merseyside club and Rennes can agree on a transfer price between £7m and £10m.

Two interesting snippets for me, firstly the Chimbonda story about him missing a walk aound the hotel and subsequently getting dropped...I can see trouble brewing there knowing our Pascal and also the Jimmy Bullard story about him not pulling his weight in midfield, now he has either changed into a completely different player or Hodgson just wants shut because he didnt sign him
