Here are the latest updates as the January transfer window updates are coming on Friday afternoon for some target players.
There are done deals already as we update you:
Done Deal: Saints midfielder Callum Slattery joins Gillingham on loan until the end of the season
Discussing his latest capture from Saints, Gillingham boss Steve Evans told the club website: “Callum is an excellent addition to the group. He is very highly thought of at Southampton and he is here to further his education.
Official: Birmingham City midfielder leaves after six-and-a-half years with the club
The 29-year-old began his career with Wolverhampton Wanderers and made 61 appearances as well as helping them to the 2013-14 League One title.
He joined Blues for an undisclosed fee in August 2014 with his current contract due to end this summer.
Davis leaves Birmingham City having scored 11 goals and made 194 appearances for them.
Rice tipped to make Man Utd decision
Both teams have been linked with moves for the West Ham ace, though Chelsea were told to fork out £73m for him last summer.
And Rio Ferdinand thinks a move to Stamford Bridge is most likely for Rice if he is able to push through an exit.
He said: “Good luck to him. I think it’s inevitable he will go but I think – if I’m being realistic – he will go in the summer and I think it would be to Chelsea if he had his wish.”

Arsenal encouraged to try and sign Jack Grealish as solution in transfer market
That is the view of both Harry Redknapp and Piers Morgan, with the former Tottenham boss stating that the midfielder is ready to play for a ‘bigger club’.
Grealish, 25, has had a fine start to the new Premier League season by scoring five goals and setting up another nine across only 15 outings.
That form has helped Villa into eighth place in the table and two points above the Gunners who have played two more fixtures.

Italian giants want to take Man United ace on loan after a bitterly disappointing season
It’s really not clear exactly what the issue with Donny van de Beek has been at Man United, but there’s no chance that this was the plan when they signed him in the summer.
He has made 10 Premier League appearances but they’ve mostly been from the bench, while it gets even weirder when you consider he’s done well when he does play.
Mundo Deportivo have cited a claim from Calciomercato which suggests that Inter Milan are hopeful of taking him on loan, although there’s no mention of there being any option to buy included in that deal.
He’s absolutely shown enough to suggest that Man United would be mad to let him go already, but a temporary switch could make sense if he’s not going to start regularly just now.

Modric: Real Madrid contract talks are going in a good direction
Luka Modric says talks with Real Madrid over a new contract are “going in a good direction”.
The Croatia star’s deal expires at the end of the season but reports have claimed there is an agreement in place for a one-year extension.
The 2018 Ballon d’Or winner, now 35, has enjoyed a superb campaign for Madrid following early doubts over whether the return of Martin Odegaard could limit his involvement.
