00:00 - Goodnight
And technically now, good morning. There are doubtless a few deals across Europe yet to be confirmed but with Minamino and King the likely big names, we can probably afford to get to bed and wait for the announcements tomorrow morning. Clubs won't want to sacrifice social media engagement by going this late with any tweets, you'd imagine. Thanks for reading today, and we'll have more transfer news with Euro Papers and Paper Round through the week.
23:18 - Two deal sheets submitted...
Ballon d’Or predictions: Why Prem quartet fail to make our top 15
And as well as Takumi Minamino, one would assume the Josh King deal to Everton is the other. The news may not come until the morning, but let's give it until midnight.
23:10 - Arsenal loan deals confirmed
Ainsley Maitland-Niles is sent on loan to West Brom as he looks to secure some time on the pitch ahead of Euro 2020.
Another youngster, Joe Willock, has joined Newcastle United.
22:52 - Minamino window extended
Southampton have put in a deal sheet with the Premier League which gives them until 1am to secure an agreement for the loan of Takumi Minamino.
22:50 - Gazzaniga joins Elche
The 'keeper's move to Elche is confirmed, in the hope of finding some time on the pitch.
22:45 - What's left to be done?
So far, we're expecting one more transfer to go through. Maybe too.
Josh King has 15 minutes to make his mind up between Everton and Fulham.
Fulham, meanwhile, will probably announce Josh Maja's arrival from Bordeaux.
22:10 - Mustafi to Schalke
With Kabak on his way to Liverpool, Schalke need a replacement.
It had been expected that Shkodran Mustafi would join the German side from Arsenal, and that has now come to pass, confirms Arsenal.
The 28-year-old German has left on a permanent deal, and represents yet another Arsenal exit. Joe Willock is expected to join Newcastle, but Mesut Ozil, Sokratis and others have departed already.
22:05 - Kabak joins Liverpool
Ozan Kabak, the 20-year-old Schalke central defender, has joined Liverpool on loan for the rest of the season.
He is expected to complete a deal in the summer but that could cost around £70 million.
Kabak is the second central defender to join Liverpool today after Ben Davies arrived from Preston North End, and the pair will be expected to step in with the injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.
21:50 - Gazzaniga may leave Spurs
Paulo Gazzaniga has been linked with a move to Spanish side Elche by Sky Sports.
The goalkeeper is a reserve for Spurs but with Joe Hart seemingly Jose Mourinho's preferred deputy, there is little point him staying at the club any longer.
21:35 - Late Southampton offer for Minamino
Takumi Minamino is a late addition to tonight's speculation.
Minamino was a surprise addition to Liverpool and only cost £7.5 million. People were expecting more from him so far at Anfield and he hasn't got a chance - nor has he really impressed in the occasional glimpse he's been given.
Now, according to David Ornstein, it seems that Southampton are asking for the chance to bring him in on loan.
21:30 - Former Inter target makes Luton move
Tom Ince famously turned down Inter Milan, and the son of Paul has now found a new club after leaving Stoke on loan.
The former Blackpool man has gone on loan to Luton Town until the end of the season.
21:10 - Fulham close in on one, perhaps two deals
The first is that of Josh Maja, the Bordeaux striker. A deal that could be completed for nine million euros at the end of the season is on the cards.
Also, there is the chance that they could still get Josh King. A deal has been agreed with Bournemouth, but so has one with Everton, who appear to be the favourites for the versatile forward right now.
20:55 - Las Palmas announce Jese
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is one, but there is another player who has gone to PSG via Stoke.
That is Jese, and he is now on his way to Las Palmas.
20:35 - Pochettino OUT
...Of Spurs. Maurizio Pochettino, Mauricio's 19-year-old son, is now on his way to Watford on a four-year deal.
It is perhaps no surprise he left after the sacking of his dad, and a lot of the time family relations do get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to giving them contracts in the youth levels.
20:05 - And now Liverpool confirm
20:00 - Davies deal complete - reports
Irish news organisation RTE have confirmed that Liverpool have signed Ben Davies from Preston North End.
The 25-year-old had expected to sign a pre-contract deal with Celtic but Liverpool have stepped in with a £500,000 initial offer to bring him in immediately.
The Kabak deal is still expected to go ahead tonight regardless, given the injuries to both Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk.
19:35 - Fulham give up on King
It seems that Fulham will not get Josh King from Bournemouth.
Transfer expert Dean Jones told Eurosport: "Fulham are close to giving up on King.
"He's not changing his salary expectation and he could possibly move to Everton.
"They had been deterred earlier in the window as he wanted £100,000 a week."
19:20 - Muric moves to Willem II
Aro Muric has moved to Willem II on loan until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old Kosovan 'keeper was at Girona, the club that Manchester City's parent group alongside Per Guardiola, but that spell has now ended.

He moved from Grasshoppers in 2015 but has Ederson in his path at City for now.
19:00 - Willock joins Newcastle - reports
The BBC are reporting that Joe Willock has completed his move to Newcastle United.
The 21-year-old has found it hard to break into the Arsenal side under Mikel Arteta, but is now moving to Newcastle who are trying to turn around their season under Steve Bruce.
18:45 - Okay Yokuslu
26-year-old Okay Yokuslu has joined West Brom from Celta Vigo.
The Turkish midfielder has arrived to help Sam Allardyce, and now joins Robert Snodgrass and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, along with Mbaye Diagne up front.
18:30 - Two Turkish exits
DeAndre Yedlin has moved on to Galatasaray:
Cenk Tosun is on his way back to Turkey too, to join Besiktas. The 29-year-old forward had a spell at Crystal Palace but found life in England about as much fun as the rest of us do.
18:10 - Fulham trying to sign King
Fulham might be sending Aboubakar out on loan to Dijon, but there's no guarantee they will be able to bring in a replacement up front.
Our transfer expert Dean Jones believes that they are pushing hard to bring Josh King in from Bournemouth but things are far from easy.
He told Eurosport: "Fulham have put forward a couple of players to Bournemouth in an attempt to land Josh King, because cash is tight.
"I wouldn't say it's likely that they get him, but they are trying."
18:00 - Parma make two signings
19-year-old Joshua Zirkzee has moved to Parma on loan, but there's an option to buy for 15 million euros at the end of the spell.
He had been linked to Everton but that move appears to have fallen through now.
Another player to join is Graziano Pelle, the former Southampton striker whose time in China has come to an end.
17:30 - Khedira joins Hertha
Hertha Berlin have confirmed the arrival of Sami Khedira on a free transfer, reportedly until 2023.
The 33-year-old has left Juventus after moving there from Real Madrid.
He has won trophies regularly, has plenty of experience, and now moves back to Germany where he began his career.
Matteo Guendouzi will remain at the club for the rest of the season before returning to Arsenal.
17:15 - Kamara set to leave Fulham
An exit for Aboubakar Kamara from Fulham is on the cards.
The striker will join Dijon (for what it's worth, one of the few cities with Haussmann architecture outside of Paris) until the end of the season but there's no option to buy.
He's played 12 times this season and scored once, and hasn't scored more than 10 times in a season since 2016/17.
17:00 - Kabak deal agreed
That's the news from super transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who is attracting plenty of attention today, as ever.
He has the finer details of the move for Kabak, and apparently Liverpool will only move for David Carmo if this move doesn't go through.
The next move as a result will be that Shkodran Mustafi goes from Arsenal to Schalke as the replacement.
16:45 - Grot are Leeds doing?
They're not making awful puns, for one.
Leeds have sent Jay-Roy Grot to Vfl Osnabruck on a permanent deal. The 22-year-old dDutch forward, who can play through the middle and on the right wing.
He was on loan at Vitesse last season and it appears now that he won't be able to break into the first team at Elland Road.
16:30 - West Brom agree Maitland-Niles deal
Reports are coming in that Ainsley Maitland-Niles has agreed a deal with West Brom to join them on loan.
The 23-year-old utility player looked to have a bright future for the club and even started for the England national team, but since has found it hard to break past Kieran Tierney and Buyako Saka to start on the left wing.
A move now should give West Brom some much needed quality, while Maitland-Niles will gain experience.
16:15 - Costa linked to West Ham
Diego Costa, the former Chelsea striker who was released by Atletico Madrid after an underwhelming second spell in Spain, has been offered to West Ham, according to Tancredi Palmeri.
The 34-year-old Spanish striker has been looking for a new club since his departure, amid speculation he needed to return to Brazil for his family.
Spurs were rumoured to be interested in him, as were Wolves, who need strengthening in attack after Harry Kane and Raul Jimenez respectively were injured for their clubs, but it appears that West Ham want to add him to Jesse Lingard, in what would be a wonderful partnership from 2016.
16:00 - Brighton sign Caicedo
Brighton have completed the signing of 19-year-old central midfielder Moises Caicedo until June 2025 from Independiente del Valle subject to international clearance.
Head coach Graham Potter said: “It's no secret we have been working to bring Moises to the club, and we are very pleased he is finally here.
“He will need time to settle in with the group, for us to get to know him and vice versa, as well as get up to speed and ready for the demands of the Premier League.
“He has done very well in Ecuador and made his debut for his country at just 18. He's an exciting signing, but it is important we give him time to adjust.”
Caicedo was reportedly a Manchester United transfer target this window, too.
15:50 - Fulham 'want to sign King'
Bournemouth striker Joshua King has been linked with an exit throughout January and Southampton are said to be interested.

Fabrizio Romano says Ozan Kabak's full medical is all that's needed to get his move to Liverpool sealed. He has agreed personal terms and agents fees have been agreed.
Liverpool have also reportedly completed the signing of Ben Davies from Preston. There is a good chance both players will be officially announced at the same time.
15:00 - Mustafi contract 'terminated'
Arsenal have reached an agreement to terminate Shkodran Mustafi's contract, according to Bild.
If things move quickly, this will pave the way for Mustafi to join Schalke and therefore see Ozan Kabak join Liverpool.
14:55 - Ntcham heading to Marseille
According to French outlet RMC Sport, Celtic's Olivier Ntcham will join Marseille on loan which will include a €5M option to buy should the 24-year-old midfielder pass his medical this afternoon.

14:45 - Liverpool close to Kabak deal
Liverpool are close to signing Schalke defender Ozan Kabak on loan with an option to buy rather than have it as an obligation, according to Fabrizio Romano.

"Together we decided Chris will use the months in Hoffenheim for the next stage of his development. We're sure TSG will get a lot from him."
Inside Football's Dean Jones makes a good point.
"Interesting that highly rated defender Chris Richards is joining Hoffenheim from Bayern - it’s the same loan move David Alaba made when making his breakthrough.”

Schalke are rock bottom of the Bundesliga standings on eight points - nine from safety - yet out of nowhere Hoppe scored five goals in six games in January, including a hat-trick against Hoffenheim on the 9th.
No teenager has also scored more goals than Hoppe in Europe's top five leagues this season.
13:40 - Alli to PSG not happening
Dele Alli is not moving to Paris Saint-Germain on loan in this transfer window, according to Fabrizio Romano.
There has been lots of speculation surrounding the 24-year-old’s future and a reunion with former boss Mauricio Pochettino, who he thrived under in his early years at Spurs, looked to be on the cards.
But Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho denied the claims last week, insisting he was "convinced" no players will leave before the transfer deadline.
13:30 - Watford sign Bergkamp's son
Watford have followed up the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino's son from Tottenham, Maurizio, yesterday by bringing in 22-year-old Mitchel Bergkamp - son of Dennis.

13:20 - Davies could move again after Liverpool
Inside Football's Dean Jones provides us with the latest on Preston defender Ben Davies possibly heading to Liverpool.
"Davies is an interesting option for Liverpool. From what I’ve heard it would not be a surprise if he becomes available for another move next season - maybe even to Celtic as was planned for now - once Liverpool have their full complement of defenders back and fit again.”
13:12 - Saints no longer want AMN
Southampton are no longer interested in signing Ainsley Maitland-Niles on loan from Arsenal.

13:00 - Cercle Brugge sack Clement

12:40 - Schalke contact Arsenal about Mustafi
Schalke are reportedly keen to bring in Shkodran Mustafi from Arsenal, which would likely happen if Liverpool can complete the signing of Ozan Kabak from the Bundesliga club in time.
Mustafi, who joined Arsenal in August 2016 for a fee reportedly in excess of £35m, has played just nine times in all appearances for the Gunners this season.
The Germany international has been in talks with Arsenal to have his contract, which expires this summer, terminated.

Bournemouth striker Joshua King has been linked with an exit throughout January and Inside Football's Dean Jones has the latest info for us on a potential move along the South Coast...

12:10 - Not much happening in Manchester
The two Manchester clubs are not expected to set the world alight with significant transfer news today.
As we approach lunchtime, take a look at the done deals that have happened across Europe today so far (Clue: not many)
11:46 - Southampton closing in on Maitland-Niles
It's always good to see a football club muster up the human quality of "growing in confidence".
That is exactly what is unfolding at Southampton as they pursue Arsenal wingback Ainsley Maitland-Niles, according to reliable Gunners reporter Chris Wheatley.
Sky Sports report the north London club are not keen to allow him to go to Leicester as they are direct rival to the Gunners in the fight for European spots.
So it looks to be a battle between the Saints and West Brom for his signature. Remember, it's all about confidence at this point...
11:40 - Eriksen back to Spurs not happening
Christian Eriksen is not leaving Inter Milan and will remain there, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Leicester, Wolves and Tottenham had all been linked to the Danish midfielder who was reportedly unhappy at Inter with club chief executive Giuseppe Marotta saying in December he was on the market.
However, the situation seem to have changed in recent weeks. The 28-year-old has enjoyed more game-time under head coach Antonio Conte recently and he scored a brilliant free-kick in the 97th minute of the Milan derby to knock AC Milan out of the Coppa Italia.
Marotta hinted on Saturday that he could stay at the club after all, telling broadcaster DAZN: "As Antonio Conte said, if there are some players who are unhappy and want to find other clubs, it's not right to withhold them.
"We do not have any of those situations. Therefore, this is the squad we will have at our disposal until the end of the season.”
11:25 - Willock 'set for Newcastle'
Lots of reports circulating this morning that 21-year-old midfielder Joe Willock will join Newcastle on loan today.
Willock has made just seven Premier League appearances for the Gunners this season but has been used five times in the Europa League, scoring three goals in the process.
When Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was asked if there would be any loans completed today, he replied: "Yes, we have decided, and we are working on it."
11:20 - Kabak deal could be difficult
Liverpool are in a race against time to agree a deal with Schalke for central defender Ozan Kabak.
Eurosport Germany's Jonas Klinke tells us: "For financial reasons a transfer would definitely make sense for Schalke. Because the club is in serious financial trouble and therefore needs every euro.
"But Schalke says, that they only would let Kabak go, if they’ll find a replacement before 6pm (5 pm in England). That could be difficult.
"Despite Schalke playing out a horrible season so far (last place, only eight points, worst defence in the league), Kabak is still seen as a big talent."
11:15 - Latest on Alli
Our man - Inside Football's Dean Jones - gives us an update on Dele Alli to PSG.
"Things are going to have to change very quickly and very soon if Dele is to get his move to PSG," he says.
He’s stuck at Spurs unless he somehow manages to force a move in the next few hours.
11:10 - Reid loaned to Brentford
Brentford have signed Winston Reid from West Ham on loan for the rest of the season.

Brentford head coach Thomas Frank said: "We are very happy to welcome Winston to Brentford. We are very pleased that he wanted to come to help the team for the rest of the season.

11:00 - Liverpool had €23m Caleta-Car bid rejected
As we said at 8:36, Marseille's 24-year-old's defender Duje Caleta-Car to Liverpool was not going to happen.
However, what is new here is the details of the offer.
For what it's worth, Eurosport France's Julien Pereira told us this about him: "I think he has the level to play at an intermediate Premier League club before considering the big six - a bit like Dejan Lovren (who adores Caleta-Car by the way).
"But seeing the Reds' issues with their defenders right now, I don't find very surprising the fact that they were looking at a player like him."
10:50 - King and Long to swap?
The Athletic report Bournemouth striker Josh King could be heading for Southampton with Shane Long, 34, going the other way.
King's personal terms is reportedly the one obstacle at the moment.
King has scored 53 goals in 184 appearances for Bournemouth since his arrival in 2015, but the 29-year-old is unsurprisingly linked to a return to the Premier League.
The Norway international's contract at the Cherries expires this summer.
10:45 - Bruce on Newcastle transfers
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce says Hamza Choudhury might join from Leicester today, Matt Ritchie could be on the move and DeAndre Yedlin is joining Galatasaray.
He said: “It could be a busy day. Things change in 24 hours, and a lot depending on injuries. Hope we can do one or two things today."
Choudhury: “Yes it’s been the case all window that we are waiting on things happening at the other end, that has always been the case. We’ll see what today brings. I haven’t said that it’s just necessarily just Hamza Choudhury – you keep saying that. We have got one or two things bubbling a long, we will see where we are later in the day.”
Ritchie: “That one is up in the air. We will see where we are later in the day with that one. He is well thought of but has found himself frustrated not being a regular. He has to understand if it doesn’t happen he gets his head down and works hard until the end of the season .”
Yedlin: “He’s a great pro and he is joining a huge club in Galatasaray. Sometimes you need to let one go to get one in."
10:35 - Fulham in Maja talks
Fulham are in talks with Bordeaux to sign 22-year-old Josh Maja on loan.
The former Sunderland striker has just two goals in 17 appearances this season for the Ligue 1 side this season, but relegation-threatened Fulham are desperate to make some additions so this could well happen.
Bordeaux signed Jean Michael-Seri for the remainder of the season on Saturday.
10:30 - Liverpool targeting Kabak
Liverpool are in a race against time to agree a deal with Schalke for central defender Ozan Kabak, according to Sky Germany.
Sky report Liverpool are working on a £2.5m loan for the 20-year-old, who they have apparently been looking since last summer, with an option to buy the player once the loan is up.
Kobak moved to Schalke from Stuttgart for £13m in 2019 and he is contracted to the Bundesliga club until 2024.
10:05 - Arteta teasing exits
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has been teasing departures this morning with Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson expected to leave on loan today.
“Yes, we have decided, and we are working on it," the Spaniard told reporters ahead of their Premier League clash with Wolves tomorrow.
So, you will find out before 11. I cannot speak about any individual players, about what we want to do, the conversations we’ve had, so let’s see if we can get something done tonight.
Arteta was also asked if he will sign a left-back today: "The last day of the window is always unpredictable," he said.
"Things can happen. It might happen, it might not happen. We are on it."
09:56 - Lala signs for Olympiakos

Forest boss Chris Hughton said: "He is a proven goalscorer at Premier League and Championship level and has continued to keep himself fit so we are looking forward to what he can bring to the squad ahead of a busy run of fixtures."
Before his loan Murray spent four seasons playing for the Seagulls, including spearheading their promotion season in 2016/17, and scored 54 goals in 151 appearances.
09:38 - It's Okay West Brom!
Okay Yokuslu has completed his West Brom medical and is expected to complete his transfer from Celta Vigo today.
The 26-year-old Turkey international has made 14 appearances for Celta this season, but he is trading life in Spain for a Premier League relegation dogfight under Big Sam.
The holding midfielder was left out of Celta's squad to face Granada on Sunday and this one should be done imminently. Intriguingly he can also play at centre back.
West Brom's other signings this window are Mbaye Diagne on loan from Galatasaray and Robert Snodgrass from West Ham.
09:25 - No Botman no problem
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano reports 21-year-old Lille defender Sven Botman is not a player Liverpool are looking at.
This means Preston's Ben Davies is the defender they want with his medical now said to be done. That was quick!

Quina has not played for Watford since picking up a hamstring injury in December. In total Quina has played 37 times for Watford since arriving from West Ham in August 2018. He has scored three goals.

09:10 - Two GKs on the move
Everton's third-choice goalie Jonas Lossl has left the club to return to Danish club FC Midtjylland where he began his career.

Norwegian goalkeeper Orjan Nyland has joined promotion-chasers Norwich City.
The 30-year-old had been a free agent since October 2020 following his release from Aston Villa, but has now signed for the Championship club for the remainder of the season.
09:05 - Neymar wants PSG stay
Paris St Germain forward Neymar said he wants to remain at the Ligue 1 champions and hopes Kylian Mbappe will also pledge his future to the club.
Neymar joined PSG from Barcelona in 2017 for a world record fee of €222m, but Spanish media have frequently linked the 28-year-old with a switch back to the Catalan side.
Mbappe has 18 months remaining on his contract in Paris and new manager Mauricio Pochettino has played down reports the French forward could be on the move to Real Madrid.
"I'm very happy today. Things have changed a lot, I can't exactly explain why - if it's just me, or something else has changed," Neymar, whose contract expires in June 2022, told French television channel TF1.
"I have adapted. I feel calmer and I'm very happy here. I want to stay at PSG and I hope Kylian will stay too. Of course, that's the wish of every PSG supporter... With Kylian, we have a relationship of brothers ... We really like to play together.
We want PSG to be a great team and I want to continue doing what I've done every day in Paris - play football and be happy. That's the most important thing.
PSG are third in Ligue 1, three points behind leaders Lille.
Pochettino: Getting best out of Mbappe and Neymar is 'most important challenge'

Leicester, who dropped to fourth in the Premier League after Sunday's 3-1 home defeat by Leeds United, are looking to bolster their squad following the departure of attacking midfielder Demarai Gray to Bayer Leverkusen.
Dennis Praet (thigh) and Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring) are out due to injury and Rodgers is looking to provide cover for Youri Tielemans and James Maddison.
Asked if he was confident a new recruit could arrive on deadline day, Rodgers told reporters: "Yes. It'll be good for the team, we have a gap there so the club will work hard at looking to get someone in.
Our idea is to get a midfield player. If we can do that, then great.
Media reports have linked Leicester with a move for Arsenal's Ainsley Maitland-Niles or for Watford's Nathaniel Chalobah, who Rodgers worked with during his spell at Chelsea's academy.
"I know Nathaniel from my time working with him at Chelsea, but I know lots of players ... there are a number of players that we're looking at," Rodgers said.
08:45 - Gueye to Newcastle? Don't be silly!
L'Equipe has given more insight into Newcastle's interest in PSG's Idrissa Gueye.
The 31-year-old Senegal international did not wish to join the Magpies on loan and let the club know at the weekend.
He is under contract with PSG until June 2023. Gueye apparently did not want to rush into any big decision.
Gueye, who moved to Paris from Everton for £30m in 2019, was dropped to the bench by new boss Mauricio Pochettino on Sunday for PSG's 3-2 defeat to Lorient.
08:36 - Davies having medical
Sky Sports report that Preston defender Ben Davies is set to have his Liverpool medical this morning with the Merseyside club's pursuit of a centre back set to dominate the transfer agenda today.
The Premier League champions reportedly agreed a deal for the 25-year-old centre-back on Sunday for a fee of £500,000.
Davies has six months remaining on his existing contract. Young Liverpool centre back Sepp Van Den Berg will head the other way on loan until the end of the season.
Liverpool are without senior centre backs Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez due to long-term injuries and were dealt another setback after Joel Matip was forced off with an ankle ligament injury in their 3-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur last week.
Liverpool have also been linked to Marseille's 24-year-old's defender Duje Caleta-Car, but French outlet RMC Sport says the player went the airport ready to take off for Liverpool on Sunday night, via Manchester... when he learnt that there would be no deal.
Marseille reportedly pulled the plug on the deal because they were not confident they could find a replacement in time before today's deadline.
08:20 - It's all happening in Turkey
DeAndre Yedlin is set to leave Newcastle and join Turkish Super Lig club Galatasaray today.
Gedson Fernandes, who is currently on loan at Tottenham but has made only two appearances this season, is also in negotiations with the club. Galatasaray have confirmed they are in talks with parent club Benfica over signing the 22-year-old.
And ICYMI last night Cenk Tosun has returned to Besiktas on loan from Everton. The 29-year-old has scored nine goals in 49 appearances for the Merseyside club since his £27m arrival in 2018.
08:12 - Guaita stays on
The first news of the day is some contract news. Crystal Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita has signed a new contract until June 2023 with the option of another year.
“I am so happy to extend my time at Crystal Palace with my contract until 2023," he said.
“My family is really settled here in south London, and I have enjoyed my time with Roy, Deano [goalkeeping coach Dean Kiely], all the coaches, and my teammates playing in the Premier League, and have a great relationship with the fans of Crystal Palace.”
08:10 - So here we go then.

According to transfer oracle David Ornstein, Southampton and Leicester are the leading contenders...
