A round-up of transfer stories involving Leeds United, Sunderland, Norwich City, Brighton & Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town.
According to Sky Sports, Andy Lonergan’s proposed move from Leeds United to Sunderland is off, after the two clubs failed to reach an agreement.
The Yorkshire Evening Post cite personal terms as the issue, however, and claim the goalkeeper was granted permission by Leeds to undergo a medical on Wednesday.
According to the Guardian, Sunderland have also received bad news in their attempt to sign Leicester City shot-stopper Eldin Jakupovic.
Staying in the Championship, the Daily Mirror report that Norwich City defender Christoph Zimmermann is on Bournemouth‘s list of alternatives should they fail to agree a deal for Chris Mepham of Brentford.
It is claimed the London side have already turned down a £5.5 million offer.
Norwich are seemingly braced for an approach, however, with the Daily Mail reporting that they have tried – and failed – to sign Luton Town defender Akin Famewo for £300,000
A number of Championship sides are said to have enquired about Famewo, but Norwich appear to have made the first move, allegedly offering £250,000 plus add-ons for the 19-year-old.
A bizarre one from the Sun now, who report that Brighton & Hove Albion‘s Liam Rosenior is interesting former Seagulls manager Gus Poyet at Bordeaux.
Poyet, who also managed Sunderland and was assistant to Dennis Wise at Leeds, never worked with the 33-year-old, however.
And according to the same source, Huddersfield Town defender Micheal Hefele is wanted by a number of Championship clubs on loan.
