MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini - who has been linked with a move for Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao - has ruled out bringing anyone in during the January transfer window. Mancini told the MEN: "We can't keep thinking of bringing players in. We have a good team, good strikers, but we need them to be strong when they get a chance."

SOUTH WALES EVENING POST

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has spoken for the first time about speculation linking City with a move for Barcelona striker David Villa in the January transfer window. Laudrup joked: "There have been a lot of rumours, but the only Villa coming to Swansea is Aston Villa. He is a fantastic player, but unfortunately I don't think he will be coming to Swansea. I think he will stay at Barcelona."

YORKSHIRE EVENING POST

Leeds boss Neil Warnock has issued a hand-off warning to clubs eyeing striker Luciano Becchio, who has been linked with Wigan. Warnock said: "I don't think we'll lose anybody we want to keep. I can guarantee that while I'm in charge and they're (new Leeds owners GFH Capital) in charge there'll be no key players leaving here - unless we want them to leave." Warnock hopes to strike a permanent deal to land Michael Tonge after his loan from Stoke came to an end, and also wants to sign up on-loan pair Alan Tate and Jerome Thomas on permanent deals.

THE PINK UN

Norwich boss Chris Hughton has dismissed speculation linking striker Steve Morison with Aston Villa.
