HITC Sport Breaking News

Celtic, Newcastle, West Brom, Watford, Swansea City, Queens Park Rangers and Manchester United, all feature in our transfer roundup.

Kazim-Richards completes Celtic transfer

Celtic have confirmed on their official website that they have signed striker Colin Kazim-Richards from Dutch side Feyenoord, with the forward penning a two-and-a-half year deal. The 29-year-old, formerly of Fenerbahce and Galatasaray, joins the Bhoys as Ronny Deila attempts to boost his attacking options.

Swansea poised to sign QPR ace Leroy Fer

According to Sky Sports' transfer blog, as reported at 19:17, Swansea City are closing in on a deal for QPR midfielder Leroy Fer. The Dutch international, 26, hit six goals in 31 Premier League games for QPR last season, and is now returning to the top flight as the Swans edge towards a deal for the 6ft 2in midfielder.

No Newcastle bid for Berahino

Sky Sports also suggest at 19:06 that suggestions of a £24m move from Newcastle United for West Brom striker Saido Berahino are wide of the mark. It's stated that West Brom are standing firm, and a deal with the Magpies seems incredibly unlikely right now.

Doucoure in, Doucoure out

Watford have confirmed the signing of Rennes midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure - but the London Evening Standard report that he will be heading straight back out on loan to sister club Granada. The 23-year-old Frenchman has hit 11 goals and 11 assists during his time with Rennes, but will seemingly only link up with new club Watford in the summer.

Ex-Manchester City defender to Manchester United?

Former Manchester City right back Omar Elabdellaoui is currently playing in Greece with Olympiacos, and could be in line for a return to Manchester - this time with United. The Manchester Evening News carry quotes from the Norway international's agent Jim Solbakken, stating that a deal is being discussed ahead of the deadline.
