Have your say

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY striker Steven Fletcher is being linked with a move to Greek giants Panathinaikos as the Owls seek to further ease their big wage bill.

The Scottish international, who endured an injury-disrupted 2017-18 campaign, is among a number of senior players who Wednesday are likely to be willing to receive offers for as they bid to reduce their wage budget to adhere to Financial Fair Play (FFP regulations).

West Brom are considering Middlesbrough forward Britt Assombalonga as a potential replacement for Salomon Rondon, who is set to join Newcastle United, with the Magpies likely to invoke his £16.5m release clause.

Assombalonga has been liked to several other Championship sides, including Leeds United, Nottingham Forest and Birmingham City, but as it stands, Boro have yet to receive a firm bid for the player.

Boro remain interested in West Brom winger Matt Phillips, with former Riverside favourite Albert Adomah being another target linked, with Adomah’s club Aston Villa cutting costs in their quest to ease a financial crisis.

Huddersfield Town winger Sean Scannell is set to sign for Bradford City in a permanent move today.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United are running the rule of their trialist keeper Luke Steele, amid speculation regarding the future of Simon Moore.

Moore has been linked with West Brom, with the Blades taking the chance to take a look at ex-Barnsley and Bristol City custodian Steele, part of their squad alongside former Ipswich forward David McGoldrick for Tuesday night’s 3-2 friendly win at Valley Parade.

Former Barnsley and Bristol City goalkeeper Luke Steele has joined Sheffield United on trial, amind increasing speculation about Simon Moore’s long-term future at Bramall Lane.

Fleetwood are keen on signing Blades forward Chef Evans on loan.

Hull City are “very close” to signing Kasimpasa striker Mbaye Diagne, according to reports

The 26-year-old striker only joined Turkish Super Lig side Kasimpasa in January but is likely to be on the move again. He scored 12 goals in 17 games for Kasimpasa.
