Transfer deadline day LIVE: Rashford’s Man Utd future, Spurs chase Chelsea’s Gallagher, Fulham want Broja


It’s transfer deadline day as the January window comes to a close and Premier League clubs race to try and complete last-minute deals ahead of tonight’s 11pm deadline.

Chelsea are set to dominate the final hours of the window, with Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja’s futures still yet to be decided. Chelsea are reportedly willing to sell Gallagher to help meet FFP regulations, so long as they get the right offer, and Tottenham are considering a last-ditch bid. Broja, another academy product, has meanwhile been linked with a late move to Wolves or Fulham, who could do with some goals over the second half of the season.

Newcastle are close to reaching the limit of financial fair play too, so may need to offload players with Bruno Guimaraes, Miguel Almiron and Kieran Trippier all linked to other clubs. Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey has been linked with Tottenham and Bayern Munich in order to meet profit and sustainability regulations. And Marcus Rashford’s Manchester United future is in doubt after his latest fallout with manager Erik ten Hag, with one report suggesting Paris Saint-Germain are ready to revive their interest.

WSL latest after Villa suffer injury blow

13:20 , Sonia Twigg

Aston Villa’s Lucy Staniforth is to miss the rest of the season due to an ankle issue, boss Carla Ward has said.

Ward said the 31-year-old, who has 17 England caps, is set for surgery after suffering the “bizarre” injury in the warm-up prior to last week’s League Cup match against Sunderland.

Since then Villa have also lost Staniforth’s fellow midfielder Laura Blindkilde Brown, with the youngster joining Manchester City on transfer deadline day.

Ward told a press conference ahead of Saturday’s Women’s Super League home clash with Bristol City: “Lucy Stan and Laura Brown have been ever-present in our midfield, so it’s a massive hole. Lucy has been excellent for us.

“It’s an injury that requires intervention and we’ll get that done on Wednesday and get her ready for pre-season.”

England Under-23 international Blindkilde Brown, 20, made her move with Villa saying City had triggered a “substantial” buyout clause in her contract. It is reported City have paid £200,000.

Ward said: “I think naturally we’re disappointed with the Browny situation. When the call came in, I think the first thought is ‘absolutely no chance’.

“City hit that clause and then we sat down with Laura, and I think the fact that City’s midfield is in the position they’re in (with Jill Roord injured) and Laura’s got an opportunity to go in there and play straight away, go for a title and try to finish in the Champions League spots, it’s something for her as an individual she simply couldn’t turn down.

“She’s a fantastic talent. I think City have got a bargain. Personally I’m absolutely gutted that she’s no longer here.”

Transfer deadline day LIVE: Rashford ‘case closed’

09:00 , Jamie Braidwood

Erik ten Hag has declared it is “case closed” for Marcus Rashford as he returns to the Manchester United squad but has told his players they have to show discipline – on and off the pitch.

Rashford was omitted for the FA Cup win at Newport after drinking alcohol and visiting nightclubs during two nights out in Belfast last week.

Rashford then said he was sick when he returned to Manchester, but Ten Hag left him out of the Newport match, which he attributed both to illness and an “internal matter”.

The forward has held talks with Ten Hag and has reportedly been fined two weeks’ wages but will be available to play when United visit Wolves on Thursday.

Manager Ten Hag said: “He has taken responsibility and it is an internal matter: case closed.”

What about Scotland?

The Scottish window will shut half-an-hour later, at 11.30pm.

And the rest of Europe?

La Liga’s window closes at the same time as the Premier League, which is midnight in Spain. Clubs in Ligue 1, meanwhile, will have an hour less to make their signings.

Business in the Bundesliga has to be concluded by 6pm German time (5pm GMT), and Serie A’s window an hour later.

What about the WSL?

A long-time target for the club, Toney has returned to action for Brentford having served his eight-month betting ban. The striker averages a goal every other game in the Premier League and has expressed a desire to test himself at a “top club”.

Brentford, though, are unlikely to want the centre forward to leave without a sizeable transfer fee. The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reports that a price tag of £100m has been set for Toney, and Arsenal may revisit their interest in the summer.

Transfer deadline day LIVE: Almiron to Saudi?

Newcastle forward Almiron has become a much-loved figure on Tyneside, but may be moved on with Al Shabab most strongly linked. The Saudi Pro League club are not one of those who have benefitted from the involvement of the country’s Public Investment Fund, but the obvious ties between Newcastle and the nation may make a deal more likely.

His departure could allow Newcastle to invest, with Eddie Howe expressing frustration that the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR) have hindered the search for additions to his squad.

Transfer deadline day LIVE: Could Rashford make a shock move?

07:00 , Jamie Braidwood

England forward Marcus Rashford is under the microscope again following his alleged hijinks in Belfast last week, which led to internal disciplinary measures being taken by Manchester United.

While United say they have drawn a line under the matter, Rashford is not as settled under Erik ten Hag as he might once have been.

The Portuguese only swapped the Hoops for the Saudi Pro League last summer but has been heavily linked with a return to the UK.

However, David Moyes’ side could meet resistance from Al-Ittihad given Jota has been in Saudi Arabia for just six months.

Transfer deadline day: Newcastle keeping busy

06:30 , Jamie Braidwood

Newcastle were expected to be one of the biggest movers but they are having to juggle the restrictions imposed by profit and sustainability and financial fair play rules with a desire to strengthen.

Indeed, boss Eddie Howe said this week it was “impossible” to add to their squad without selling first.

Kieran Trippier, Miguel Almiron and Bruno Guimaraes have all been linked with moves abroad but Newcastle have managed to resist any overtures thus far and will hope there are no major departures on Thursday.

Conor Gallagher has been an integral part of Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season but with just 18 months left on his contract and no sign of an extension, the England midfielder has been linked with a switch to Tottenham.

Fulham and Wolves are said to be tracking another of Chelsea’s academy products in Armando Broja.

But lightening the books could allow the Blues to follow up reported interest in Aston Villa’s Jhon Duran and Newcastle forward Callum Wilson as well as Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies.

Good morning

06:00 , Jamie Braidwood

It’s transfer deadline day as the January window comes to a close and Premier League clubs race to try and complete last-minute deals ahead of tonight’s 11pm deadline.

Chelsea are set to dominate the final hours of the window, with Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja’s futures still yet to be decided. Chelsea are reportedly willing to sell Gallagher to help meet FFP regulations, so long as they get the right offer, and Tottenham are considering a last-ditch bid. Broja, another academy product, has meanwhile been linked with a late move to Wolves or Fulham, who could do with some goals over the second half of the season.

Newcastle are close to reaching the limit of financial fair play too, so may need to offload players with Bruno Guimaraes, Miguel Almiron and Kieran Trippier all linked to other clubs. Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey has been linked with Tottenham and Bayern Munich in order to meet profit and sustainability regulations. And Marcus Rashford’s Manchester United future is in doubt after his latest fallout with manager Erik ten Hag, with one report suggesting Paris Saint-Germain are ready to revive their interest.
