Newcastle want Sunderland starlet


Newcastle United are said to be 'hopeful' that they will be able to sign Sunderland teenager Chris Rigg.

As reported by 90min, the 15-year-old is actually a fan of the Magpies and so this will likely be a key factor in his decision.

Incidentally, he became the Black Cat's youngest-ever player this weekend in the FA Cup, coming off the bench at 15 years and 203 days old in the 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Town.

Gvardiol drops hint on Leipzig future


RB Leipzig and Croatia World Cup star Josko Gvardiol has claimed suggested he won't be leaving this January

In an interview with Croatian outlet Danas, he said: "I am also happy for the club to achieve something big. I'm not in a hurry, I'm in Leipzig, we still have six months to finish the season properly and to win something. And then we will look further to the future."

This may come as a blow to Chelsea and Tottenham who have been linked with the defender in recent times.

Aboubakar released to make way for Ronaldo?


Of course, we all know Cristiano Ronaldo is now officially an Al-Nassr player having left Manchester United before the World Cup.

However, while some may have expected him to be linking up with Vincent Aboubakar who impressed Cameroon in Qatar, it seems that won't be the case.

According to reports, Ronaldo has been registered by Al-Nassr in place of the 30-year-old striker who has now been released amid recent links to Manchester United.

Weghorst close to Man United loan?


By the looks of it, Bestikas striker Wout Weghorst could soon be heading back to England but not back to parent club Burnley.

Instead, it seems he could be leaving Turkey to spend the second half of the campaign with Manchester United.

Only helping spur on the rumours, he appeared to be waving goodbye to Bestikas fans on Saturday after scoring in a 2-1 win over Kasimpasa.

Liverpool change stance on Nunes
