Fever pitch

As the closure of the transfer window looms ever closer, so does the speculation increase in intensity...

The Daily Heil has once again linked us with a move for Man Utd midfielder Tom Cleverley, though Owen Coyle's Bolton are keen - and the same paper was very recently claiming that the former Watford loanee was Wigan-bound.

The Heil also alleges that the subjects of our recent discussions with Man City were Roque Santa Cruz and Dedryck Boyata. The Paraguayan striker enjoyed a successful spell at Blackburn but has struggled with injuries, form and (unsurprisingly) simply getting first-team action since his £17.5m move to Eastlands, while defender Boyata looked like a very promising prospect when presented with rare opportunities last season.

According to the Sun, it's Hull's Guinea central defender Kamil Zayatte that we've earmarked as the man to plug the potential hole created by Steven Taylor's departure, while Talksport suggests we're trying to strike a loan deal for Spurs striker Robbie Keane, though does at least also acknowledge that this is unlikely given the discrepancy between his current salary and our wage ceiling.

I heard we could be in for a Swedish utility man called Skadeglädje Me. Apparently he is currently playing for Young Flu in Rio.
