IDEYE TO WEST BROM

Oh. My. Goodness. West Brom spent a club-record £10 million on Nigerian striker Brown Ideye last week - but head coach Alan Irvine has never even seen him play.

AJAX BAFFLED BY REDKNAPP CLAIM

Harry Redknapp in communication error shocker! The agent of Ajax striker Kolbeinn Sigthorsson - his brother Andri - has dismissed claims from Redknapp that QPR had agreed a deal for the player but the move failed to materialise due to wage demands. "The news about the ongoing negotiations is absolutely untrue," he told Ajax Showtime. "The last conversation we had with coach Harry Redknapp was five weeks ago. At the moment were are not talking, so I don't know where the news comes from."

Goal understands Louis van Gaal has advised Netherlands international Memphis Depay to stay at PSV Eindhoven for one more season. Manchester United and Tottenham are both interested in the 20-year-old, who scored twice at the World Cup, but Van Gaal believes the £18 million-rated winger should stay in the Eredivisie for another year before seeking a move.

NANI LATEST

It looks like Nani may struggle to be a part of Louis van Gaal's plans at Manchester United. The Dutchman intends to use a system with three central defenders and full-backs, leaving Nani to battle it out with Juan Mata, Shinji Kagawa, Adnan Januzaj and more for just one position. The latest report on his future - from A Bola - suggests Arsenal could be prepared to pay £9 million for his signature.

WEST HAM STRIKER SEARCH

Things go from bad to worse for Andy Carroll. First of all, he's ruled out for four months with an ankle injury, and now West Ham co-owner David Sullivan says the club made a mistake by signing him last year. Ouch. The Hammers have already brought in Mauro Zarate this summer, while Enner Valencia's move is subject to a work permit, and Sullivan says they are looking at bringing in another forward.

In a true battle of the hipsters, new Marseille coach Marcelo Bielsa is reportedly looking to sell Mathieu Valbuena this summer.

ORIGI TO... ATLETICO?!

Uh-oh. Divock Origi has looked set for a move to Liverpool all summer but, according to Marca, Atletico Madrid are hoping to hijack the deal. The Spanish champions have lost Diego Costa, David Villa and Adrian this summer, with only Mario Mandzukic arriving as a replacement, and hope to beat Liverpool to the signing of the 19-year-old Lille striker.

Speaking of Real Madrid, ABC claims today that the Champions League holders are set to step up their interest in Monaco striker Radamel Falcao. They reportedly want to sign the Colombian in a loan deal worth £9.5 million before making the move permanent at the end of the season. An attempt to avoid FFP sanctions, perhaps?
