Manchester United striker James Wilson is set for a loan move, while Charlton are bidding to ward off Stoke and Leicester interest in Morgan Fox.
CHAMPIONSHIP CLUBS LINE UP FOR WILSON
Cardiff and Bolton have joined Derby County in the race to sign Manchester United striker James Wilson on loan, according to the Daily Mirror.
It was reported on transfer deadline day that United were willing to loan out Wilson and that more than 10 clubs from the Premier League and Championship were interested in the 19-year-old, but no move materialised.
However, the loan window is now open again for Football League clubs, with at least three from the Championship hoping to do a deal for Wilson.
Cardiff boss Russell Slade said: “He’s a player of strong ability.”
STOKE AND LEICESTER FOX HUNTING
Morgan Fox is set to sign a new deal with Charlton, says the Daily Mirror, as the Addicks seek to ward off Premier League interest in the young defender.
The 21-year-old is said to have caught the eye of Stoke City and Leicester City since making his breakthrough at The Valley, but the left-back, who is already under contract until 2017, is set to be given a pay rise on a long-term deal.
Charlton chief executive Katrien Meire said: “It’s important we look after our academy produced players.”
