England goalkeeper Tom Heaton has committed his future to Burnley by signing a new contract until June 2018.
Wolfsburg have moved to sway Newcastle away from a move for Bas Dost by claiming the striker would command a fee around the £29million mark.
Fabio Capello has rejected reports that he has been approached about becoming the next manager of Chelsea.
Benitez's future as manager has been the subject of intense speculation over the last few days after his outburst against the club and the club's fans following last week's FA Cup win at Middlesbrough.
A number of names have been linked with the Chelsea post in the wake of Benitez's criticism, with former England boss Capello the latest candidate to emerge on the radar.
However, Capello insists he has received no offer from Chelsea and is focused on leading Russia to the 2014 World Cup finald.
"I am only thinking about reaching the World Cup with Russia," Capello told Italian radio. "At the moment, I am not thinking about anything else.
"I have received no offer."
