West Brom are in the hunt to sign “highly-rated” Charlton centre-forward Karlan Grant, according to the Daily Mail The newspaper claimed that Huddersfield and Middlesbrough are also interested in signing the 21-year-old.

  8. West Brom are keen on Newcastle United midfielder Isaac Hayden, according to The Telegraph journalist John Percy on Twitter.

  9. Birmingham City are keen on Norwich City winger Ben Marshall, according to journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter. The Blues are looking into a loan deal for the 27-year-old as they aim to bolster their squad in this January transfer window. Marshall, who only joined Norwich in the summer, has had an injury-hit season so far and has made just five appearances for Daniel Farke’s side. Therefore, they are expected to loan him out for him to regain his fitness and get more minutes under his belt.
  10. Aston Villa have abandoned their pursuit of Chelsea defender Gary Cahill, according to reports. The claret and blues have been tracking Cahill since the summer window with the centre-back’s contract at Stamford Bridge set to expire at the end of this season. Despite fans’ eagerness to see Cahill - who left the club for Bolton Wanderers in 2008 - back at Villa Park, Villa have reportedly pulled the plug on the deal. The Telegraph report Chelsea’s preference to offload Cahill permanently in January but Villa wouldn’t be willing to do that or cover the cost of his £110,000 per week wages for a loan deal.
  11. West Bromwich Albion face Premier League opposition for Nottingham Forest winger Joe Lolley. The Baggies have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old, but now Bournemouth are said to be keen on Lolley. It is said £10m should be enough to secure his services.

  19. Aston Villa are plotting a swoop to sign Dijon centre-forward Julio Tavares on deadline day, according to the Daily Mail. The newspaper claimed on their live transfer blog on Thursday [10:27am] that while a late deal for the £2.5million-rated Cape Verde international would be fairly straightforward, Steve Bruce also has his eyes on signing Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham on loan, which can be done by August 31. Dijon powerhouse Tavares scored 13 goals in 28 appearances across all competitions last season.
  20. Villa have already signed two keepers in the last week: Andre Moreira (Atletico Madrid) Orjan Nyland (Ingolstadt)
