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.
Toni Kroos' future at Bayern Munich appears to be in doubt following comments from manager Pep Guardiola.
The Germany international has 18 months left on his current deal, and speculation intensified recently when Manchester United manager David Moyes was seen at a Bayern game sat next to a representative of Kroos.
The 24-year-old has rejected a new deal offered by Bayern, and he appeared unhappy when substituted after an hour of the Bundesliga leaders' last outing.
Bayern trailed by a goal when Kroos was replaced, but speaking after his side had fought back to beat Stuttgart 2-1, Guardiola said: "He is an important player but things can move fast in football.
"Here today, gone tomorrow."
The midfielder has been capped 41 times by his country, and made his Bayern debut in 2010.
