Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray says he is 'very close' to wrapping up a loan deal for a new striker.
Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy says he refused to be 'blackmailed' when it came to Tyrone Mings' future over the summer.
Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway believes Wilfried Zaha may be distracted by the club's wish to keep him beyond January.
Zaha is one of the hottest properties in English football but Palace are keen for him to stay until at least the end of the season as they bid for promotion to the Premier League.
And Holloway says it is important that the 20-year-old stays focused if a big-name club decides to test Palace's resolve with a bid in January.
"When a young player gets a chance to move and the club say no, we need to manage that disappointment and refocus that person," Holloway told the London Evening Standard.
