DONE DEAL - CHELSEA LOAN MOVE

The 19-year-old made his first appearance for the Blues on the final day of last season against Cardiff.

MEDEL LATEST

Will Gary Medel EVER join Inter? The latest rumour - this time from Wales Online - suggests the move is edging closer. The Chilean is reportedly prepared to lower his wage demands to force through a switch to the Serie A club, but the current transfer fee on offer is still £500,000 short of Cardiff's valuation.

DONE DEAL - BLACKPOOL SIGN A PLAYER!

Championship club Blackpool - in turmoil, I think it’s fair to say - now have 13 players on their books... but still no goalkeeper. They have completed the signing of defender Donervorn Daniels (WHAT A NAME) on a 28-day youth loan from West Brom. The 20-year-old has never played higher than League One level.

The 29-year-old was a free agent after leaving Ajaccio and comes in as a replacement for new Manchester City man Willy Caballero.

WICKHAM ULTIMATUM

Yowzers. Connor Wickham returned from Championship loan spells to inspire Sunderland to the great escape last season... but now he could be sold. Black Cats boss Gus Poyet told the Sunderland Echo: "For me, Connor's situation is clear, he needs to sign a new contract or we let him go - we sell him. There is nothing in between. He is an asset to the football club and we paid a lot of money for him."

Newcastle have already signed Ayoze Perez and Emmanuel Riviere this summer, with Facundo Ferreyra set to follow, but the Daily Mail claims Alan Pardew is targeting ANOTHER striker in the transfer window. Pardew has confirmed his interest in re-signing Loic Remy, while Papiss Cisse is still at the club. But, sadly, Shola Ameobi is not. Sad face :(
