Key events

Back to two teams mentioned already and Nottingham Forest look close to landing former wunderkind Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea.

The 22-year-old is another to have fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge after being hyped as the next big thing and he spent last year on loan in the Bundesliga at Bayer Leverkusen, making 21 appearances in total. The potential Forest move is is believed to be at the ‘advanced talks’ stage.

Meanwhile, one Forest-related deal that has been done is a new shirt sponsor. No, me neither but Kaiyun Sports are renowned across Asia as a leading digital sports platform. They already have partnerships with Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

Marc Cucurella to Manchester United is one to keep track of between right now and Friday. Our transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, says United are trying to work out a potential loan deal for the Chelsea defender who doesn’t appear to be in favour with new Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino.

A move for Cucurella makes sense following the injury to Luke Shaw and the former Brighton defender looks a good fit for Erik ten Hag. He’s not the only one being linked though. Oh no. Take your pick from Sergio Reguilon, Marcos Alonso, Nicolas Tagliafico, Luke Thomas and Ryan Bertrand.

Leeds sign Djed Spence on loan

Let’s open with some hard fact and Leeds United have signed Tottenham full-back Djed Spence on loan. The defender was great in the Championship for Nottingham Forest but didn’t get a look in at Spurs before joining French side Rennes on loan in January. It’s a boost for Leeds fans after they were dumped out of the Carabao Cup following a penalty shootout loss against League Two Salford last night.
