FL transfer latest: QPR in for striker, Blackpool chase Leeds United cast-off


Derby County have left the door open for incoming transfers, Nottingham Forest sign two players, Blackpool chase Leeds United cast-off, Liverpool are back in for Blackpool winger and Queens Park Rangers track former Porto starlet.

1) Derby County CEO John Vicars has confirmed the door is still open to possible incomings and outgoings, via a tweet to supporters.


The Rams have been linked to West Brom starlet George Thorne and with reports indicating the clubs are currently thrashing out a deal for the player, that looks all the more likely.

Derby find themselves performing above expectations this season and extra quality could aid their push for an automatic promotion place.

2) Nottingham Forest have enjoyed a busy and fruitful day in the transfer market, signing both Rafik Djebbour and Kevin Gomis.



Both players have found themselves out of regular first team action this season and a fresh start for both players could be just what's needed. Billy Davies will be hoping that both players can hit the ground running and play a huge part in their promotion push.

3) Blackpool are talking to Leeds United cast-off Ryan Hall, according to Sky Sports reports.

The 26-year-old winger was infamously sacked by Leeds United after an investigation took place over a tweet late last year. Since his sacking at Leeds United, he signed a short term deal with conference south side Bromley, playing six times.

The Tangerines are keen on strengthening their side with the imminent departure of fan favourite Tom Ince, but serious doubts will be cast over Hall being the man replacing him.

4) Liverpool have set their sights on former winger Tom Ince, according to reports from The Mirror.

The England U21 midfielder has reportedly been talking to a number of clubs as he weighs up a move that will in turn benefit his future the most. The likes of Monaco and Ajax have been linked, however, 24 hours ago it seemed like Stoke City were in the ascendency.

Liverpool are looking rejoin the race for the player they allowed to leave for a nominal fee in 2011, but if signed will go back to Anfield a different and more dynamic version of the player who left.

5) Queens Park Rangers are reportedly closing in on former Porto striker Guilherme Dellatorre, according to Sky Sports reports.

The 21-year-old Brazilian officially plays for Deportivo Brasil, but has spent the sum of his professional career playing out on loan to various clubs, including Portuguese giants Porto. 

Harry Redknapp has been scouring Europe for it's brightest young talents and having missed out on French U21 striker Paul Georges Ntep, it has been hoped that Inter Milan's Ishak Belfodil would be the man to put the hoop shirt on. However, according to reports yesterday, talks with the Algerian striker were still on going and Harry Redknapp may be forced to keep other plans on the back burner.
