  1. Goodbye

    It's time to say goodbye.

    Thanks for joining me today. Keep up to date with all the latest transfer news here.

    Until next time.

  2. '£75m for Ward-Prowse' - your reaction


    Paul Clarke: Premier League clubs have so much money now, they are no longer cheap feeder clubs to the top 6. They don't need to sell, and the price tags of players like JWP reflect that. The more money there is in the game, the higher the fees go.

  3. Carabao Cup draw


    The draw for the first round of the Carabao Cup is taking place at 14:30 BST. It will feature 70 clubs from the Championship, League One and League Two.

    Thirteen Premier League clubs not involved in European competition will enter at the second round stage.

    The 2023 final takes place at Wembley on Sunday, 26 February.

    Liverpool are the holders.

  4. Cardiff in Bale talks - your reaction

    The Spin Doctor: Would be great if Bale could spend a couple of seasons playing for the club that he actually supports. Not many players get this opportunity. When he looks back on this years from now, the memories will be priceless.

  5. Will Sterling stay at Man City?

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    The alternative for Raheem Sterling is to remain where he is, which raises one of two options.

    The first is to try to negotiate a new deal with Manchester City. Sterling is already very well paid due to the contract he signed in 2018 and the club's willingness to engage will be an indication of how much Pep Guardiola wants him around.

    The other option is to let his contract run out, which would see him become one of the most sought-after free transfers of 2023, when the lack of a fee will automatically drive his wage up.

    As he continues on his post-season break - and thinks ahead to the start of a new campaign - Sterling has a lot to mull over.

    One thing is for certain, whatever path he chooses, it will be big news.

  6. What next for Sterling - your reaction

    James: My only concern for Sterling is his conversion rate is always just a little below what it should be and it's the howlers that get mentioned. Foreign media will chew him up if he doesn't deliver and that is more common than not as Owen and Beckham found.

  7. Sterling will only join a club in Champions League


    The Times is reporting that Raheem Sterling will only consider leaving Manchester City if he is a first-team regular at a club challenging for the Champions League and leading domestic trophies.

  8. Get Involved


    Sulaimon Adelekan: If James Ward Prowse is worth £75m, Marc Cucurella is worth £50m, he is a typical Pep Guardiola left-back.

  9. Bayern sign Mane - your reaction



    WolfFace: I’m a Wolves fan. Looking in from the outside I can’t understand why he has left Liverpool for anyone.

  10. 'Eriksen hasn't decided yet'

    Manchester United

    A bit more on the Christian Eriksen to Manchester United rumours.

    According to reports, Brentford have a transfer agreement with Eriksen.

    Bees boss Thomas Frank said that Eriksen will call him when he's decided on his future plans.

    "The agreement is that he will call me and tell me what he wants to do," added Frank. "He hasn’t decided yet."

  11. Get Involved



    Chris Allen: As a Chelsea fan, it's pretty frustrating seeing little progress in any of the potential transfers we are linked with. Also, we have lost Rudiger and Christensen, only kept Azpilicueta due to 1 year extension clause and could still lose Alonso. We need some defenders.

  12. Cardiff in Bale talks - your reaction


    Matt: As romantic as Bale playing for Cardiff City would be, Championship is not the league to play in if he wants to be fit for the World Cup. Physically demanding for a player with injury problems, more games than PL, possibly a lower standard of ref and less protection?

  13. United 'negotiating hard' for De Jong

    Manchester United

    More on reports that Manchester United have submitted an improved bid for Frenkie de Jong.

    The Manchester Evening News say United are "negotiating hard" for a fair deal for De Jong.

    The report adds that United have fall-back targets with a lower valuation than De Jong should they fail to prise De Jong from Barcelona but they are determined to sign Ten Hag's priority target.

  14. Bayern sign Mane - your reaction


    Eli: LFC will miss him. He's been a great servant to the club always smiling even when he wasn't playing his best stuff. Will be hard to replace and will cost a bucket load of cash. With Mo not signing we could be in for a new front three this time next year. In Klopp we trust.

  15. Forest defender buys non-league club

    Nottingham Forest

    What a great few weeks for Steve Cook.

    First he helps Nottingham Forest win promotion to the Premier League for the first time in 23 years.

    Now the defender has brought himself a non-league club.

    Cook is the new owner of Sussex non-league side Westfield. The club finished 11th in the 11th-tier Mid-Sussex Premier League last season and are based just north of Hastings.

    "The idea fitted with my current ambitions and looking to help local football," said Hastings-born Cook.

  16. Cardiff in Bale talks - your reaction


    The Zeppelin: He doesn't want to risk not getting selected like his last year with Real Madrid. He needs to play every week and Cardiff will undoubtedly offer him that.

  17. 'Man Utd to make improved offer for De Jong'

    Manchester United

    Manchester United are expected to formally submit an improved bid to Barcelona for Frenkie de Jong imminently, the Manchester Evening News is reporting.

    MEN chief Manchester United reporter Samuel Luckhurst adds: "United made an opening offer of €60million (£51.64m) including add-ons that was rejected by Barca, who are unwilling to suffer a loss on a player they signed for £65m three years ago.

    "Barca are believed to want a guaranteed €75m (£64.55m), with add-ons to ensure De Jong's overall fee surpasses what they paid Ajax to sign him."

  18. What next for Sterling - your reaction



    Markt66: Whatever your decision Raheem, thank you for all you have done at Man City. All the best for the future. I for one will never forget the late, late winner v Southampton at the Etihad a few years ago. Nine trophies says it all, thanks.
