United boss Ferguson to make offers to Chelsea duo – report

Sir Alex Ferguson will offer both Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole the chance to sign for Manchester United when their Chelsea contracts expire at the end of the season, the Daily Star say.

The paper believes Ferguson even considered trying to sign the pair during this month’s transfer window but Chelsea are unwilling to do business with other Premier League clubs.

The Daily Mirror suggest Newcastle striker Demba Ba could still join Chelsea, with talks set to resume this week.

The Sun say Chelsea could complete a deal to sign Spain forward Alvaro Negredo from Seville in the next few days.

Meanwhile, Leeds United boss Neil Warnock is planning another move for Clint Hill and Shaun Derry, according to The Sun.

Warnock, who signed both players for QPR, has been keen to capture them for some time and is apparently looking to do so during the transfer window.

The Daily Star say Reading are looking to beat Rangers to the signing of Joe Cole from Liverpool.

It is claimed QPR are set to offer Cole £30,000 a week and an 18-month contract, while Reading are prepared to go as high as £25,000 a week and a two-and-a-half-year deal.
