Nicolas Isimat-Mirin: Linked with move to England

Reports from across the Channel claim that Legrand was at Fulham on Wednesday night for their game with West Ham United - ahead of talks over his star asset.

Legrand has now claimed that he has held talks with Fulham, West Ham and Newcastle over the central defender - but as part of the deal they want him to remain with the club until next summer.

"We are now discussing with West Ham, Fulham and Newcastle," he told RMC.

"We have set a requirement to keep the player until June. But should he leave, in this case, we will consider recruiting a player."

Reports have also claimed that Isimat-Mirin's team-mate Gaeton Bong could also be a Deadline Day target for a number of Premier League clubs.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
