DE GEA FACES FIGHT FOR FUTURE
After Stoke snapped up Jack Butland on deadline day, there's plenty of speculation that Asmir Begovic will be on his way in the summer.
According to The Sun, the Potters number one is a target for Manchester United and the paper claim David De Gea has four months to convince Sir Alex Ferguson not to replace him.
The Sun report: 'The Spaniard, 22, is under mounting pressure after several high-profile gaffes. And United are now circling Stoke goalkeeper Begovic.
'Tony Pulis completed the £4million signing of England's Jack Butland from Birmingham before loaning him back until the end of the season as a hedge against Begovic's potential exit.'
SPURS TO RETURN FOR DAMIAO
We're not quite sure how Spurs missed out on a deal for Leandro Damiao in January after tracking the Brazil striker since the dawn of time.
Although the club are desperate for another forward, it seems Daniel Levy may have left it a little too late on this occasion with Internacional refusing to do business until the summer.
According to The Metro, the Brazilian club rejected a £17million bid from Spurs, but they hinted that plans may be made for Damiao to leave in the summer.
"Leandro Damiao won't leave, the offer was below what we wanted," said Internacional director Marcelo Medeiros.
"He is under contract with Internacional and will remain our player. But, like Lucas to PSG, it is always possible if there is a very good deal."
Expect Levy to make Inter pay by convincing them to sell Damiao for £6million in June.
DOYLE AND HOOPER STAY PUT
You'll have heard about Norwich's 432 bids for Gary Hooper by now, but one you may have missed last night was Celtic's failed attempt to sign Kevin Doyle on loan.
Wolves boss Dean Saunders confirmed that the club had rejected an approach for Doyle and it's thought the Republic of Ireland international will be on his way in the summer.
Remember when he was linked with Arsenal? Eesh.
WILLIAN TO JOIN ANZHI
Ach, this disappoints us terribly. There had been plenty of speculation that Spurs and Chelsea were going to make moves for Willian in January, but the Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker is set to join big-spending Anzhi Makhachkala for around £34million. Crikey.
Shakhtar coach Mircea Lucescu has been quoted as telling reporters: "I tried to convince him to choose football, but he preferred money.
"I couldn't change anything. I just told Willian he gives up Barcelona, Real and United games (in the Champions League) if he goes to Anzhi. He wanted to go."
BIG ECK TO QUIT FOREST?
After the clusterfunk of Nottingham Forest's deadline day, the Telegraph are reporting that Alex McLeish is already considering his position at the City Ground.
Forest had been set to sign Peterborough midfielder George Boyd, but the club's owners pulled out of a deal blaming an eye problem picked up in Boyd's medical.
That eye problem hasn't stopped Boyd scoring strikes like this for Peterborough though, and Forest returned later in the day to see if they could take the 27-year-old on loan.
Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony flatly refused that request and the whole business became rather unsavoury leaving McLeish questioning his future at Forest.
The Telegraph report: 'McLeish was left stunned when chairman Fawaz Al-Hasawi pulled the plug on Peterborough winger Boyd's transfer two hours before the transfer deadline.
'It is understood McLeish was promised around £3 million to strengthen his squad at the start of the transfer window but no money was spent on fees, with only two loans and a free transfer completed.'
