    Mike Green: Last week Daniel Sturridge was going to Inter Milan now he's going to West Brom. One good goal and the media will have him in the England team.

    West Ham are keen to sign Everton’s Morgan Schniederlin – but are only willing to take the French intenational midfielder on loan.

    Everton are willing to part with Schneiderlin, a little more than a year after signing him from Manchester United in a £24m deal.

    The Merseysiders, however, would prefer to claw back £20m in straight cash and are reluctant to do loan deals that will not carry any certainty of a return.

    Everton manager Sam Allardyce has revealed loan moves for summer signings Davy Klaassen and Sandro Ramirez have been rejected in this window.

    Allardyce retains an interest in Sevilla midfield Steven Nzonzi, who he signed when he was at Blackburn Rovers and has recently been unsettled at the La Liga club.

    If Everton can strike a deal for Schneiderlin, or even £25m summer signing Klaassen if interest from elsewhere continues, it would free up finance and a space in his squad for Nzonzi.

    Spanish defender Marc Bartra has told a court he feared for his life when Borussia Dortmund's bus was bombed last April.

    Bartra spoke at the trial of German-Russian man Sergei Wenergold, who admits setting off three explosives in a complicated plot to make money on the stock market.

    Bartra suffered a fractured wrist in the attack and was in hospital for five days.

    West Ham United

    David Moyes has been speaking ahead of West Ham's game against Crystal Palace and he says Sakho leaving (11:27) has not come as a surprise to him: "When I joined I was told Diafra would be leaving in January.

    "As far as I know it's all done now."

    And on the possibility of making signings before the window closes, Moyes added: "I'm not going to bring in players who won't make a difference to the team.

    "It's a waste of money and a waste of time."

  15. Klopp backs Guardiola over player protection

    Huddersfield Town v Liverpool (Tues, 20:00 GMT)


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he agrees with Pep Guardiola that players need protecting and the Reds boss is keen for VAR to help on the issue.

    "I've always said that the first thing that we all have to do is to save the players.

    "If you are late or ruthless in a challenge then you need to be punished for it. Yesterday we had Cardiff, it was a bad challenge for sure," said Klopp.

    "If somebody sees the situation and does not challenge it that is really bad for the game because we all need the players.

    "I'm 100% the same opinion as Pep that we need to save the players."

    Watford are keen to sign former Everton wide-man Gerard Deulofeu on loan for the rest of the season.

    Deulofeu joined Barcelona in the summer but has failed to make an impact on his return to the Nou Camp.
