TIOTE UPDATE

Reports earlier today suggested Lokomotiv Moscow had not returned with a bid for Cheick Tiote after having an approach rejected earlier in the summer. However, Goal understands they HAVE made another move and Newcastle are open to selling the midfielder. It will cost double the £3.5 million they paid to Twente in 2010 for the club to let him leave, though. Full details below.

REDKNAPP REACTION

The QPR manager told the club’s official website: "Leroy’s arrival is a massive boost for us. He’s another excellent signing and I’m delighted we’ve been able to get him to QPR. He played for Holland in the World Cup this summer and has all the attributes you'd be looking for from a central midfielder. He's just an outstanding midfield player - great physique, fine ability, he gets box-to-box. I’m really looking forward to integrating him into the squad."

DZEKO REACTION

He told the club's official website: "I’m really happy here at City, it's a second home to me, so it was an easy decision to stay for the long-term. I knew from the beginning when I started here that I wanted to stay for a long time - I can't see any place better than here. I'm settled perfectly to life here, I know my teammates, the club, the team, very well and I feel like I can improve even more."

MULLER RECAP

Manchester United were heavily linked with Thomas Muller until the German agreed a new contract with Bayern Munich just before the World Cup. Asked about United's offer, Muller told Sport Bild: "Of course, I was aware that I could theoretically earn more with a transfer. The sums that were standing by from foreign clubs were already astronomical. I can only say: For me, a change was never really an issue anyway. FC Bayern is my club."

Muller: I turned down astronomical money

NO PRESSURE ON MARKOVIC

New Liverpool signing Lazar Markovic - who will wear the No.50, by the way - says he feels no pressure after the club splashed out £20 million to sign him from Benfica. He told the Liverpool Echo: "I believe Liverpool fans expect a lot from me, and to be honest I expect a lot from myself. The same applies for the people who worked hard to bring me here. I do not have any fear or stage fright whatsoever. To tell you the truth, I can't wait to start playing for Liverpool."

Well, according to the Daily Mirror, perhaps not. Malky Mackay is reportedly in dispute with Crystal Palace over his backroom staff and his appointment has now been thrown into doubt. The former Cardiff boss was the frontrunner to replace Tony Pulis after being interviewed for the job and had even given Palace a list of transfer targets. Whoops-a-daisy.

DEPAY LATEST

Uh-oh. It looks like Memphis Depay may not be Premier League-bound after all. The 20-year-old Dutchman has been linked with Manchester United and Tottenham all summer but, if the Daily Express is to be believed, is now close to agreeing a move to Juventus. The Serie A champions are expected to pay around £12 million for the PSV winger.
