Round-up: Willian’s future, Oscar injury, Moses, QPR signing, Ream explains move

Jose Mourinho has insisted that Willian will not be sold by Chelsea.

There have been reports that the likes of Willian and Juan Cuadrado could be offloaded by the Blues following their signing of Pedro.

However, while boss Mourinho did not rule out a move for Cuadrado, he made it clear that Willian will be staying at Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho also refused to comment on reports Chelsea are close to clinching the signings of Everton’s John Stones and Juventus’ former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

There has been speculation that Stones could hand in a transfer request in order to force a move, but Everton manager Roberto Martinez has said there has been no sign of the defender doing so.

There has also been speculation over the future of Victor Moses. Tottenham and Aston Villa are interested in the Chelsea wide-man, according to the Daily Telegraph. 

Meanwhile, Oscar has been ruled out of Sunday’s game at West Brom, where Blues keeper Thibaut Courtois will return from suspension.

Rangers recently missed out on United States defender Tim Ream, who has said that the success of Fulham’s previous American players was a major factor in his decision to join the Whites.

Fulham are still awaiting news on the knee injury suffered by keeper Marcus Bettinelli at Wolves when he collided with team-mate Matt Smith, who has been ruled out for up to six weeks.

Thomas Eisfeld has left Craven Cottage, returning to his native Germany to sign for second-tier side VfL Bochum.

Fulham’s Under-21 side were in action on Friday evening. They lost 3-0 at home to Wolves.

And striker Andre Gray has completed his move from Brentford to Burnley.
