Done Deal: Saints midfielder Callum Slattery joins Gillingham on loan until the end of the season

The 21-year-old has joined fellow Saints duo Tom O’Connor and Tyreke Johnson, who are already on temporary stays at Priestfield.
Slattery, who scored for Saints’ B team in the Papa John’s Trophy defeat at Stevenage earlier this season, has made five first-team appearances for the club, all of which came in the 2018.
The former England youth international spent time away in Holland last year, on loan at De Graafschap.

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.

Rice tipped to make Man Utd decision

Chelsea transfer target Declan Rice has been tipped to snub any potential bids from Manchester United this summer.

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

Arsenal need to sign Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish during the January transfer window.

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

The midfielder is not certain what the future holds for Sergio Ramos, but his own talks over a new deal appear to be going well.

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.
