James Maddison of Norwich City scores his sides first goal during the Sky Bet Championship match between Brentford and Norwich City at Griffin Park on January 27, 2018 in Brentford,...

According to the Daily Mirror [page 47] West Ham United boss David Moyes is 'ready to make a bid' for Norwich City playmaker James Maddison, who they claim is rated at £15 million.

The report also states the Hammers 'hope to tie' up a £12 million move for FC Kransnodar striker Fyodor Smolov and are trying to hijack Crystal Palace's £17.6 million move for Lille defender/midfielder Ibrahim Amadou.

Harry Arter of AFC Bournemouth celebrates scoring his side's third goal during the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and Huddersfield Town at Vitality Stadium on November 18,...

In other West Ham news, The Sun report [page 53] that Harry Arter has been informed he cannot leave Bournemouth until the summer, despite being 'desperate to join the Hammers' before the window closes. Moyes is said to have had an £8 million offer rejected by the Cherries.

It is also claimed Bournemouth are willing to send Lewis Grabban back on loan, with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Cardiff City keen.

Grabban scored 12 goals in 20 games for Sunderland in the first half of the campaign, but was recalled with a view to being sold. It would appear, however, that a buyer has not been found.

Sunderland, meanwhile, are still looking for Grabban's replacement and are interested in Sheffield Wednesday's Atdhe Nuhiu, according to the Sheffield Star.

Nuhiu is enjoying a resurgence under new Owls boss Jos Luhukay, scoring three goals in five games. And it remains to be seen whether or not injury-hit Wednesday will allow the Kosovan to leave. 

Preston North End's Jordan Hugill during the Sky Bet Championship match between Preston North End and Birmingham City at Deepdale on January 20, 2018 in Preston, England.

Staying in the Championship, Preston North End manager Alex Neil appears to have ruled out selling Jordan Hugill.

The striker, who is said to have been the subject of an approach from Crystal Palace on Tuesday, was left out of Preston's team for last night's 3-0 win at Nottingham Forest.

But Neil said afterwards, as quoted by Sky Sports: "There is interest from a team in the Premier League. As of now we've rejected any offer that's been made, but as I said didn't think Jordan was in the right frame of mind so I withdrew him from the squad.

"Obviously when you've got Premier League teams courting you, but you've also got a desire to leave, he said in the last window that if the opportunity arose he would go and play his football elsewhere.

"But that will be on our terms and I've got no intention of selling him. We've got no intention of selling him - a team's come in with an offer and we've rejected an offer."
