News from England’s second tier now, and Aston Villa left-back, and former Liverpool man Aly Cissokho has now left the club on loan. He has joined Olympiacos. Meanwhile Fulham have upped their interest in Standard Liege midfielder Ibrahima Cisse
Walter Mazarri has been eyeing up a loan move for Fiorentina striker Mauro Zarate. The Argentinian forward had a spell in the Premier League with Birmingham in 2008, before returning with West Ham between 2014-16, where he scored five goals.
And Sam Allardyce has vowed to switch his sights to Europe after being priced out of a move for English players. According to the Sun, Sevilla’s holding midfielder Vicente Iborra could be on the way to Selhurst Park for £12m.
Dimitri Payet may be facing an uncomfortable future after officials from Marseille failed to agree a deal with the Hammers for the on-strike midfielder.
West Brom have suffered another blow in their transfer aspirations as well after the Birmingham Mail reported the Baggies’ hopes of signing Fabian Delph are ‘dead and buried’
Sunderland and West Ham are both publicly interested in additional firepower, but the duo will need to look elsewhere after Leeds quoted £15m for New Zealand striker Chris Wood.
There isn’t too much transfer action going on in the Premier League today, so let’s enjoy a quick #ThrowbackMonday…
West Ham are still in discussions with Brentford for Scott Hogan, who has scored 14 goals for the Bees this season.
Sam Allardyce completed the signing of Jeffrey Schlupp last week, and has confirmed that Carl Jenkinson should be joining him on loan at Crystal Palace shortly.
West Brom were left frustrated in their chase of Morgan Schneiderlin, whose new shirt number has been causing widespread consternation, but the Baggies are now interested in Hull’s Jake Livermore, with Pulis’ men said to have bid £10m for the former Spurs man.
One bizarre transfer line coming in from the Sun regards Newcastle United, who are apparently interested in bringing Andros Townsend back to the club less than a year after he left for £13m.
Chelsea, however, may need to revamp their strike force come the summer, depending on a certain Diego Costa’s future. According to the Evening Standard, the Blues are eyeing up a move for Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata.
Manchester United may be in need of defensive reinforcements this January, but one area Jose Mourinho is less likely to bolster is his forwards.
Sky Sports are reporting that Bojan wants out of the club after reported interest by Middlesbrough.
Could Arsenal star Mesut Ozil remain at the Emirates? The German playmaker is said to be comfortable at the club despite saying last week that his future was linked to Arsene Wenger’s stay at the club.
Despite rumours of a move away from the club, Stoke boss Mark Hughes wants to keep Spanish forward Bojan at the club.

Could one of Chelsea’s youngsters finally be set for a move away from the club? It appears Patrick Bamford – recalled from another unsuccessful loan spell, this time at Burnley – could be on his way to Boro for a fee of around £10m. He scored 19 goals for Boro in 2014/15, but couldn’t help them to victory in the play-off final, a 2-0 defeat to Norwich.
We kick off the blog this morning with the news that Mark Noble is furious with Payet after his refusal to play. He is “angry and disappointed” at the France international, who is believed to be set for talks with Marseille.
Welcome to a new week of the circus we call the January transfer window. Will Diego Costa manufacture his way out of Chelsea? And will Dimitri Payet get his way and leave West Ham?
