Transfer gossip: Sheffield United again linked with Dieng

The latest transfer speculation involving the area’s clubs…


Sheffield United are again being linked with a possible move for QPR goalkeeper Seny Dieng.

The Sheffield Star say the Blades could reignite their supposed interest in Dieng if the Yorkshire club are unable to retain on-loan Roma keeper Robin Olsen at the end of the season.

The story is based on reports during the summer that United were looking to sign Dieng for £6m.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton told West London Sport those reports were “ludicrous”.

Speculation over Rudiger’s future

The defender’s Chelsea contract expires at the end of the season and he has so far not agreed a new deal.

The Daily Express continue to link Tottenham with Rudiger, who has also been linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

The Express say Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is urging the club’s hierarchy to agree a new contract with his fellow German.

The Sun, meanwhile, claim contract talks with Rudiger are on hold and that he is disappointed with the club’s offer.

The Times ran a similar story, suggesting that Chelsea fear Rudiger could sign a pre-contract agreement with another club in January.
