Chelsea could let unwanted Malouda go on a free – report

Chelsea have not received a single offer for Florent Malouda, The Sun report.

It is suggested that the club may even consider letting him leave on a free transfer in order to get his wages – reported to be £75,000 per week – off the payroll.

A source is quoted as saying: “It’s becoming a very awkward situation.

“He wants to leave and the club want him to leave. But while he is not playing for the first team he has dropped off the radar and clubs forget about him.

“Chelsea would think about waiving a fee just to get something done if the right club came in.”

QPR face missing out on the loan signing of Jake Livermore, according to reports.

Rangers have agreed a deal with Tottenham and expect the midfielder to spend the rest of the season at Loftus Road despite Spurs star Sandro suffering a knee injury.

But the Daily Mirror suggest R’s boss Harry Redknapp’s hopes of getting Livermore have been dented because of Sandro being sidelined, while The Sun say Tottenham have cancelled the move.

The Daily Mail say West Brom forward Peter Odemwingie may request a transfer in order to force a move to west London and that Rangers remain in talks to sign 33-year-old Lyon full-back Anthony Reveillere.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert may hijack Fulham’s bid for Derek Boateng, according to the Mirror.

The Ghana international, 29 is expected to move to Craven Cottage from FC Dnipro but Lambert is said to be looking for a holding midfielder.

The Mail say Fulham are pressing ahead with talks over a move for Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenberg, while the Mirror say the Whites are set to sign him.
