Yaya Toure's agent has performed a U-turn and insists his client will remain at Manchester City this summer.
Michael Dawson is ready and willing to lead Hull next season in the Sky Bet Championship.
Troyes defender Fabrice N'Sakala is flattered to find himself being linked with a move to England, but claims no bids have been lodged.
Fulham are reported to be plotting an approach for the highly-rated left-back, with Martin Jol in the market for new recruits.
At just 22 years of age, N'Sakala would represent an addition for the present and future and is unlikely to demand a big fee despite being under contract until 2014.
N'Sakala, who has also been linked with West Ham in the past, admits he would welcome the opportunity to test himself in the Premier League, but insists he is unaware of any official offers being made.
He said: "I have heard about the interest from the newspapers, but no-one at the club has said anything to me.
"I love English football, as anyone who loves football loves the football they play there."
