Chelsea ‘will loan De Bruyne to Southampton’

Chelsea will loan Kevin de Bruyne to Southampton so he can gain Premier League experience, The Sun report.

De Bruyne, 20, was signed from Genk for £7m in January and is tipped to join the newly promoted Saints.

FC Twente defender Douglas, who is said to be a target for Chelsea, believes Newcastle are looking to sign him.

The 24-year-old Brazilian told NuSport: “Five clubs are interested and there’s a bigger club than Newcastle. I cannot still say anything about it, but I hope soon to have my new club.”

Meanwhile, the Daily Star report that out-of-contract midfielder Danny Murphy is set to sign a new contract at Fulham.

French media have reported that QPR are interested in Bordeaux left-back Benoit Tremoulinas.

The 26-year-old, apparently rated at £10m, has two years of his current contract left to run and is said to want to move to England.

The Daily Mail say Rangers are keen on former Everton and Portsmouth midfielder Manuel Fernandes, who is potentially available on a free transfer after a contract dispute with Besiktas

The Mail also say QPR captain Joey Barton is confident he will not be charged after being arrested following an incident in Liverpool over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The Sun suggest Barton will be sacked by the club if he is found guilty.
