Leeds United have “moved on” from Marseille striker Bamba Dieng after failing to sign him in the summer, according to Dean Jones. He said: “There’s no sign really that they’re going to go back in for that one in January. I think they’ve moved on from it, and they’ll seek other forward options if they do need new life in January.” (GIVEMESPORT)

Chelsea may be boosted in their chances of winning the race for Moises Caicedo, with the Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder willing to “jump” at the prospect of a move to Stamford Bridge, according to Simon Phillips. The journalist said: The player, himself, has said that he would love to play for Chelsea. When you’re saying things like that, it’s pretty clear that you would jump at the move if it came along. That suddenly puts his club in a lesser position than what they normally would be and so, if Chelsea go in for him in the summer or even in January, it will be very interesting to see how he responds.” (GIVEMESPORT)

Reported Newcastle United target Marco Asensio could leave Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer, according to Fabrizio Romano. He said: “But remember, Marco Asensio will be available on a free next summer because at the moment there is no agreement to extend his contract with Real Madrid. And it could be a factor this free agent story for Marco Asensio because some clubs are already exploring this possibility for next summer to sign Asensio on a free. So the January market depends on how these clubs will move on a potential free transfer for next summer or for another it will try to extend this contract but at the moment, still no agreement with Asensio and he wants to feel important. So, one to watch in January or on June as a free agent”. (Fabrizio Romano)
