A select round-up of the latest news involving Mark Warburton's Glasgow Rangers and Brendan Rodgers' Hoops.
The Mail claims that the Hoops tabled an offer of £2.75m, but Villa turned it down as they hold out for £5m.
The Bhoys - who took Tyler Blackett on loan from the Red Devils last season - may however have to see off competition from several Championship clubs for his signature, the Star claims.
The experienced defender has been without a club since leaving Liverpool in the summer, and he explained the excitement he felt having made the move.
"I feel really excited because it's going to be a new challenge for me. I've come to one of the biggest clubs in the world and it's a privilege for me to be here," he told the club's official website.
"They need to strengthen up at the back and make sure that they don't let the other team get too many chances. Luckily enough, they're scoring a lot of goals at the other end," he told BBC Sport.
"They need another centre-half and maybe another striker."
It appears that the Light Blues are thinking the same way as Lovenkrands as The Sun (Monday edition, page 56) has reported that they are interested in signing Preston forward Joe Garner.
Wigan Athletic are also interested in the striker, according to The Sun.
The club have signed nine players this summer, including a handful of midfielders, but Halliday has insisted that he is not preparing to give way for them.
"Nobody should write me off though as I won't be giving up my place lightly, and when you play for this football club, you need to earn the jersey, and someone has to try and take it from me," he told the club's official website.
