    Fletcher to Panathinaikos

    Club could be priced out of deal for Sheffield Wednesday player despite talks According to a claim in the Greek Media, Panathinaikos could be priced out of a move for Sheffield Wednesday forward Steven Fletcher. Fletcher has been linked with the Greek side in recent days, but the Sheffield Wednesday player’s salary may be an issue for the Athens club. Sdna.gr have reported in the latest developments with regards to Panathinaikos pursuit of the Scotland international. They claim Fletcher’s €1.5m a year wage is a concern as they’ve only budgeted between €300k and €500k. Panathinaikos are keen to bring in a forward with experience, but they may now have to looks elsewhere despite holding talks for the Sheffield Wednesday man. Yesterday we covered reports that Panathinaikos sporting director Nikos Dabizas travelled to England to hold talks with the Championship side over the 31 year old. However, the former Newcastle United defender may have to look at other options. The player is contracted to Sheffield Wednesday until June 2020.
  5. Nottingham Forest have had an offer of around £6m for Birmingham City target Lewis Grabban accepted by Premier League outfit Bournemouth. The City Ground outfit have already made extensive changes to their squad this summer as they look to mount a promotion tilt in the upcoming campaign.
  6. Nottingham Forest have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon on a permanent deal. The 31-year-old has signed a three-year deal at The City Ground and joins the club for an undisclosed fee.
  7. West Bromwich Albion have made a £17.7m offer for Galatasaray winger Garry Rodrigues, according to reports emerging from Turkey. According to Turkish media outlet Aksam, West Brom are ready to smash their record transfer fee to bring Rodrigues to the Hawthorns.
  8. Norwich City have signed right back/wing back, Felix Passlack on loan for the 2018/19 season from Borussia Dortmund, the club have announced.
  9. Bristol City are set to sign Derby County attacker Andreas Weimann in a £2million deal as they aim to add striking reinforcements after the departure of Bobby Reid last week.
  10. Queen's Park Rangers have emerged as favourites to sign West Ham striker Jordan Hugill on loan next season but will have to fend off competition for his signature. Steve McClaren's side are thought to be leading the race for the 26-year-old striker, who only arrived in east London six months ago on Transfer Deadline Day for a reported £8m fee from Preston North End. Hugill totalled just 22 minutes of first team football in the second half of last season, all of them from the substitutes bench, as he failed to force his way into the plans of then manager David Moyes. Football.London understands that Hugill was brought in just in case the Hammers were relegated last season but as it transpired, they weren't and Hugill is not likely to be part of new manager Manuel Pellegrini's thoughts for the upcoming season. The manager will run the rule over Hugill in pre-season but a loan move away from the club is likely. A permanent move isn't, unless the club can recoup the majority of what they shelled out for the frontman. Hugill's former club Preston North End would be interested in a return, as would Sheffield Wednesday as they both plot a path to promotion from the Championship to the Premier League.
  11. Is this instead of Rhodes??? Norwich have signed former Celtic striker Teemu Pukki on a free transfer from Danish side Brondby. The 28-year-old Finland international joins on a three-year contract, which will officially come into effect on July 1. Pukki was at Celtic Park from August 2013 to July 2015, scoring nine goals in 37 matches. Pukki, who has also played for Helsinki, Schalke and Sevilla, has spent his last four years at Brondby. He becomes Norwich head coach Daniel Farke's third signing of the summer, following the arrival of Emi Buendia and Moritz Leitner to Carrow Road. "I'm very pleased with this signing. We got the feeling that Teemu is a good fit to our ideas because he is a technical player with really smart movements," Farke told the club's official website. "We were speaking about how we need to make more runs in-behind and runs from deep and he's a player who has the smart movements.
  12. Stoke and Middlesbrough holding initial talks with Newcastle over £15m deal for winger Matt Ritchie.
  13. Aitor Karanka is set to bring ex-Leeds United star Sam Byram to Nottingham Forest on loan from West Ham, according to The Sun. Sam Byram is set to sign for Nottingham Forest on loan for the season from Premiership side West Ham. The right-back has only managed to make 27 appearances in the Premier League since he made the switch to the London Stadium. Byram has been allowed to depart the club as West Ham have signed Ryan Fredericks on a free from Fulham, which has left the door wide open for the right-back.
  14. Nottingham Forest have tabled a bid worth £8million for Middlesbrough centre-forward Patrick Bamford, according to the Mirror. The newspaper claimed via their live transfer blog on Saturday that Aitor Karanka is “zeroing in” on Bamford, 24, however Boro are said to have rejected Forest’s opening offer. It is understood that Karanka also wants Bamford’s Riverside team-mate Adam Clayton, but Middlesbrough are reluctant to offload the duo.
  15. West Midlands Press......... Millwall are set to sign Wolves winger Ben Marshall in a £1.2m deal. Marshall spent the latter stages of last season on-loan at the Den and did enough to convince the London side they need to add him to their ranks. seems a good deal at that price?
