Fulham favourites to sign Villa man in January – report

Fulham are favourites to sign Darren Bent from Aston Villa during next month’s transfer window, the Sunday People say.

It is claimed Whites boss Martin Jol could meet Villa’s £8m asking price, though Bent may have to accept a pay cut.

And The Sun on Sunday report that Fulham are set to sign Standard Liege keeper Sinan Bolat for £800,000.

The People also say both Fulham and QPR want France Under-21 midfielder Yacouba Sylla.

He currently plays for Ligue 2 side Clermont Foot, who will apparently listen to offers of around £750,000.

QPR boss Harry Redknapp is ready to move for West Ham’s Momo Diame, again according to the People.

It is claimed Redknapp is looking to exploit a clause in the Senegalese midfielder’s contract which allows him to leave for £3.5m.

Rangers are set to swoop for Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila, the Sunday Mirror say.

He was reportedly the subject of a £15m bid from Tottenham last season but has a bad-boy reputation in France, which apparently means he could be available for around £7.5m.

QPR are again linked with Celtic striker Gary Hooper, this time by the Sunday Express, while the Sunday Telegraph suggest Redknapp will sell Jose Bosingwa.

Chelsea are considering tabling a bid for Tottenham’s Benoit Assou-Ekotto, according to the Sunday Mirror.

It is claimed the Blues see him as a potential replacement for Ashley Cole, who is tipped to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

The Sunday Mirror also say Chelsea are to offer Juan Mata a new contract and that Daniel Sturridge’s proposed move to Liverpool almost collapsed because he wanted a clause in his contract stating he would be used as a striker rather than out wide.
