LIVERPOOL are set to win the race to sign Derby County's 'wonder kid' Kaide Gordon.

Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with the 16-year-old but they appear to have lost out.

Gordon will instead pick a move to Anfield, with Liverpool paying more than £1million to lure him over to Merseyside.

Derby want the teenager to remain as he is highly rated at Pride Park, but the lure of playing for Liverpool seems to have turned his head.

Gordon has already made his first-team debut for Derby, having impressed boss Wayne Rooney in training.

BARNSLEY have joined the race to sign 19-year-old striker Kyle Joseph from Wigan Athletic.

Joseph has scored five goals in 13 League One appearances for Wigan this season, and it now looks as though he is attracting plenty of interest from elsewhere.

Premier League duo Tottenham and Sheffield United – both of whom were also apparently interested in the summer – and Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers are all keen on a move for the teenager this month.

However, it now seems as though Barnsley at set to try their own hand when it comes to securing the services of Joseph during the current transfer window.

ARSENAL are still interested in bringing in Norwich City's Emiliano Buendia despite being close to landing Real Madrid youngster Martin Odegaard on loan for the remainder of the season.

Although Odegaard will join Arsenal, barring any late snags in the negotiations, Buendia remains a player high up on Arteta's wish list as he looks to fill the creative midfielder gap left by Mezut Ozil who has joined Fenerbahze.

CRYSTAL Palace, Manchester United and Arsenal are battling it out for Stoke City defender Nathan Collins.

Palace are looking to strengthen their central defensive options especially with several defenders out of contract in the summer.

But the Gunners also have their sights on young colossus Collins as a future star — and from the club where they found legendary pair Lee Dixon and Steve Bould.

The big defender is also rated by Manchester United, where Collins’ old team-mate Darren Fletcher has pushed his cause.

Burnley have also been linked with the 19-year-old.

BRENTFORD and Leeds United are keen on Nottingham Forest winger Brennan Johnson

The youngster is catching the eye on loan at Lincoln City this season and is also on the radar of Burnley and Belgian side Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.

Johnson, who is 19 years old, has impressed with the Imps this term and has made 22 appearances for Michael Appleton’s side in all competitions, chipping in with seven goals and seven assists to help them rise to 2nd in the table.

LUTON Town have reportedly made an offer for Swindon Town attacker Scott Twine as they look to beat Bournemouth, Brentford, Reading, and QPR to his signature.

Swindon recalled the 21-year-old from his impressive loan spell at Newport County earlier this month but despite making a fast start to life back with the Robins, it seems he could be on the move again.

NEWCASTLE are trying to land Bournemouth coach Graeme Jones to help kickstart their season.

Under-fire Toon boss Steve Bruce wants to bring on board the highly-respected Jones, who was Roberto Martinez’s assistant at Swansea, Wigan, Everton and the Belgium national team.

Yet Bournemouth manager Jason Tindall is determined to keep hold of his first-team coach as he looks to overcome a disappointing run of recent results to get the club back into the Premier League.

BRENTFORD manager Thomas Frank has suggested that Ivan Toney will go on to emulate the success of both Neal Maupay and Ollie Watkins and reach the Premier League in the near future.

Toney arrived in the summer from League One Peterborough United for an initial fee of around £5m, although that could rise to £10 million in add-ons.

The forward had large shoes to fill after Watkins had registered 26 league goals last term in the Championship. The 24-year-old has certainly managed to do that firing in an impressive tally of 16 goals and five assists.

That form has unsurprisingly already seen the forward attract the attentions of a couple of Premier League clubs with Arsenal and West Ham have been interested in the 24-year-old.

AN ‘UNNAMED’ Championship club have submitted a bid for Birmingham frontman Lukas Jutkiewicz.

The 31-year-old has found it increasingly difficult to break into Karanka’s starting lineup since the Spaniard was appointed manager.

With Karanka opting for his signature 4-2-3-1 formation, Scott Hogan has been the regular starter in the lone striker role.

Jutkiewicz scored 15 goals for Blues last season and has only hit the net twice this season. Maybe surplus to requirements for Karanka, the Blues boss may be thinking to move him on.
