Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has defended his decision to send striker Darren Bent out on loan to Brighton.
Tranmere chairman Mark Palios claims to have turned down the chance to sign Ched Evans.
Sky Sports understands Stoke have agreed a fee with Wolves for Michael Kightly.
As revealed by Sky Sports last month, Stoke were lining up a move for the winger as they look to bolster their squad ahead of the new Premier League season.
Stoke's initial offer for Kightly was rejected, but they have come with an improved offer that has now been accepted by the Wolves hierarchy.
Kightly, who has one year to run on his contract at Molineux, impressed during the second half of last season at Wolves after returning at Christmas following a successful spell on loan at Watford.
Stoke boss Tony Pulis is thought to be a big admirer of Kightly and is keen to add him to the ranks at the Britannia Stadium.
Kightly is now set for talks with Pulis about a move to the Potteries with Stoke hoping to tie up a deal for the 26-year-old later this week.
