CLUBS are preparing for a winter spending spree, with Chelsea hoping to join the party after being forbidden to sign anyone other than Mateo Kovacic in the summer.

The Blues are hoping to not only overturn their transfer ban but also sign Callum Hudson-Odoi to a new deal – but it is a case of 'what could have been' for Arsenal, having nearly acquired new England superstar Jadon Sancho.

  • PAUL POGBA reportedly agreed a £429,000-a-week deal with Paris Saint-Germain – but the move collapsed because of Neymar.

    The French midfielder, 26, emerged as a top target for the Ligue 1 champions, Barcelona and Real Madrid this summer.

    According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, United agreed a deal to sell him to PSG just days before the transfer window closed.

    It is reported that the only reason he did not make the move is because Neymar did not complete his switch back to Barcelona.

  • ANOTHER new contract sealed today comes at Huddersfield.

    The Terriers have tied down talented defender Rarmani Edmonds-Green to a new three-year deal.

  • READING striker George Puscas has shown his class in a short space of time in England and already has suitors for a fresh move.

    Fenerbahce are monitoring the forward and scouted him as he netted against Andorra and caused Spain problems in this week's Euro 2020 qualifiers.

    It would take a big bid to lure the Royals into a quickfire sale but the Turkish club, according to Sporx, aren't going away.

  • TALK of a mega money move to Manchester United took a toll on Sean Longstaff's performances, the Newcastle midfielder has confessed.

    An immense run of form during the youngster's breakout campaign earned him many plaudits but Longstaff admits he hasn't discovered his best since the new season began.

    United were heavily linked with a £50million bid for the Englishman during the off-season.

    And despite being flattered by the links at the time, Longstaff acknowledges that he took his eye off the ball.

    Speaking to Newcastle's official website, he said: “You can sometimes get distracted by the outside noise and maybe for a little bit in the summer I was a bit.

    “It’s hard not to, whenever you go anywhere you see your face on the front of a newspaper and you turn the telly on people are talking about you.

    “And it’s not like they’re talking about little things, they’re talking about things that can change your life really.”
