    Latest Transfer Update at 22-06-11

    Kevin Doyle - two years left to run on his current deal.
    WOLVES PLAN KEVIN DOYLE TALKS

    Wolves chairman Steve Morgan is hoping the club can tie Kevin Doyle down on a new contract.
    The Republic of Ireland international still has two years remaining on his current deal at Molineux, but the club are prepared to offer him improved terms.
    With the likes of Newcastle and Sunderland having been linked with a move for the 27-year-old in the recent past, Wolves are keen to keep him out of the clutches of a Premier League rival.
    That will mean handing him another deal, but Morgan is prepared to dig deep in order to keep key men at the club.
    Talks regarding an extension have yet to be opened, but Wolves are confident they will soon sit down with Doyle and his representatives.
    Morgan said: "I am sure we will have those conversations with Kevin and his agent at the right time.
    "Kevin has been a fantastic signing for this club and is a really, really key player for us.
    "We'd like to secure his services going forward."

    Odemwingie - holding talks over a new contract.
    ODEMWINGIE 'NOT FOR SALE'

    West Bromwich Albion have stressed that striker Peter Odemwingie is not for sale.
    The likes of Arsenal and Chelsea have been mooted as potential suitors for the Nigeria international following a fine debut campaign in the Premier League.
    Odemwingie signed for the Baggies from Lokomotiv Moscow last summer and went on to score 15 goals in all competitions.
    His displays have led to speculation that he could be targeted this summer, but West Brom have no plans to sell, instead opening talks over a new deal for the player.
    Technical director Dan Ashworth said: "Peter is not for sale, we have received no offers, and talks over a new contract are ongoing."

    Kalinic - frustrated at a lack of first-team activity.
    KALINIC COULD QUIT BLACKBURN

    Nikola Kalinic's agent claims his client is attracting interest and could be lured away from Blackburn.
    The Croatian striker has struggled to hold down first-team football since arriving at Ewood Park in 2009.
    He was snapped up from Hajduk Split by former boss Sam Allardyce but has been a fringe player throughout his time in England.
    Having grown frustrated at his lack of opportunities, there is a chance he could seek a move elsewhere this summer.
    He is prepared to sit down and discuss his future with Rovers boss Steve Kean, but there will be no shortage of willing takers should he fail to get the assurances he craves.
    "We want to talk to the coach as soon as possible so we know what happens next," said Kalinic's agent Tomislav Erceg.
    "Nikola is contracted to Blackburn but there are a lot of clubs who we believe would want him."

    Gera - searching for a new club.
    GERA ATTRACTING ITALIAN INTEREST

    West Brom are facing competition from Italy in their bid to bring their former midfielder, Zoltan Gera, back to the Hawthorns, according to his representative.
    The 32-year-old is a free agent after his contract ended at Fulham at the end of last season.
    The Hungary international spent four years at the Hawthorns before moving to Craven Cottage in the summer of 2008.
    Albion are hoping to tie up a deal with Gera this week.
    His agent, Vladan Filipovic, said: "I can't say anything concrete about Zoltan Gera yet - but there is nothing to worry about regarding his future.
    "Maybe this week will be decisive but his future will be decided, for sure, by the beginning of July.
    "We know he will leave Fulham but it is conceivable he would like to stay in England.
    "A lot of clubs are interested in signing him. There is interest as well from a Serie A team."
    West Brom have again insisted last season's 15-goal leading scorer Peter Odemwingie is not for sale with talks ongoing over a new deal.
    Technical director Dan Ashworth said: "Peter is not for sale, we have received no offers, and talks over a new contract are ongoing."
    Albion keeper Scott Carson is attracting interest from Turkish club Bursaspor but discussions over a possible move are at an early stage.

    Villas-Boas - edging closer towards Chelsea.
    CHELSEA CLOSE IN ON VILLAS-BOAS

    Chelsea hope to appoint Andre Villas-Boas as their new manager, the Barclays Premier League club on Tuesday night confirmed.
    Villas-Boas tendered his resignation with the Portuguese champions earlier on Tuesday and Tuesday night's confirmation of the receipt of the compensation payment - reported to be 15million euros - paves the way for the Portuguese coach to move on to a new club.
    Chelsea this evening confirmed their intention to install the 33-year-old as the replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, who was unceremoniously axed at the end of last season just 12 months after guiding the club to a league and FA Cup double.
    "We note that the release clause of Andre Villas-Boas has been activated," a Chelsea club statement read.
    "We can at this time confirm our interest in him and hope to reach agreement with him on personal terms and make a further announcement in the near future."
    Porto confirmed in a statement to the Portuguese Securities Market Commission, that the full buy-out clause had been met by Villas-Boas himself, although it is likely to have come via the deep pockets of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, who has already spent millions in cutting short contracts of previous managers and players.
    The statement read: "FC Porto, in accordance with Article 248 paragraph 1 of the Securities Code, hereby informs the market they have received from Mr Andre Villas-Boas the amount provided for in clause to terminate his employment contract."
    It added that all that remained to sort out were the formalities of the termination of the contract.
    Porto have moved swiftly to appoint a replacement coach, with Vitor Pereira stepping up into the hotseat after apparently turning down the chance to move to England with Villas-Boas.
    It had appeared that Guus Hiddink - who enjoyed a successful spell as caretaker boss at Chelsea in 2008-09 and continues to enjoy a close relationship with Abramovich - was set to take up a sporting director role at Stamford Bridge once his exit from the Turkish Football Federation was agreed, with compensation set at around 4million.
    However, it now seems that scenario failed to get off the ground as Chelsea turned their attentions to appointing an up-and-coming coach to oversee first-team affairs.
    Villas-Boas would certainly fit the bill after guiding Porto to domestic and Europa League success last season. He is also no stranger to the west London club, having worked there under Jose Mourinho.
    One of his first moves as the new Blues boss could be to sign Porto's star striker Falcao, the 25million-rated Colombian having impressed as the Dragons won the Europa League final at Dublin's Aviva Stadium, where the 25-year-old netted the only goal against Braga.
    That could then signal the departure of Didier Drogba, with AC Milan said to be ready to offer the veteran Ivory Coast striker a fresh start in Italy.
    Ray Wilkins, who served as Ancelotti's assistant until he was dismissed by Chelsea in November last year, felt Villas-Boas deserved his chance but believes he has a difficult job on his hands should he join the Blues.
    He told Sky Sports News: "We've had lots of older coaches come in at Stamford Bridge and (they) have not done as well, so we have to give this young man the credit for what he has done up to now.
    "We'll see where it goes from here. Obviously to knock Barcelona off their perch as the kings of Europe...we'll have to see where they go. They have taken a lot of time since Carlo was deposed as coach, so therefore they want someone in, they want someone to get cracking and let's get on with the job.
    "Let's give the young man a chance, he's obviously done exceptionally well. His man-management skills from what I can read from the players he has worked with have been first-class. That will be required at Stamford Bridge because these are big players, big guys, very nice men I've got to say, and it will be very interesting to see how this young man goes on."
    Andre Villas-Boas profile
    1977: Born in Porto on October 17.
    1993: Invited to work as a trainee with FC Porto's youth-team coaches by manager Sir Bobby Robson.
    1994: Achieves UEFA C coaching licence in Scotland.
    2000: Takes charge of the British Virgin Islands for two international matches. Both end in defeat.
    2002: Becomes part of Jose Mourinho's backroom staff at Porto.
    2004: Follows Mourinho to Chelsea.
    2008: Moves with Mourinho to Inter Milan.
    2009: Appointed manager of Academica in October, with club bottom of the table and without a win. Villas-Boas guides them to an 11th-place finish and a Portuguese League Cup semi-final.
    2010: June 2 - Appointed manager of boyhood club Porto.
    August 7 - Wins Portuguese Supercup with 2-0 victory over Benfica.
    2011: April 3 - Leads Porto to their 25th league title, finishing with the biggest ever winning margin over second place (21 points).
    May 18 - Porto win Europa League with a 1-0 triumph over fellow Portuguese side Braga.
    May 22 - Guides Porto to a trophy treble with a comprehensive 6-2 win over Vitoria de Guimaraes in Portuguese Cup final.
    June 21 - Porto confirm Villas-Boas has tendered his resignation and his contract will be terminated once his 15million euros release clause has been paid.
    Porto later announce they have received the required compensation, with Chelsea releasing a short statement confirming their interest in Villas-Boas and their intention to agree personal terms in the near future.

    Remi Garde (right) - once of Arsenal.
    REMI GARDE NAMED LYON BOSS

    Remi Garde has been named as Lyon's new coach, succeeding Claude Puel.
    The club finally severed ties with Puel on Monday following a complex arbitration process and have wasted no further time in appointing his successor.
    The six-time France international made 145 appearances in Les Gones' midfield before moving on to Strasbourg and then Arsenal.
    The 45-year-old has been in charge of Lyon's youth academy, and will be officially presented later on Wednesday by club president Jean-Michel Aulas.
    A statement on olweb.fr read: "On Wednesday June 22 at 11:30am (1030 BST), (there will be) a press conference with Jean-Michel Aulas in the presence of Bernard Lacombe and Remi Garde for the appointment of the latter at the head of the first-team squad."
    Puel left having failed to win a trophy since succeeding Alain Perrin in 2008.

    Drogba - no AC Milan interest.
    MILAN NOT TARGETING DROGBA

    Chelsea forward Didier Drogba is not on AC Milan's wish-list, according to club vice-president Adriano Galliani.
    Reports in Italy have claimed that Milan want to replace Antonio Cassano with Stamford Bridge star Drogba this summer.
    Cassano is a reported target of Serie A side Fiorentina.
    However, Galliani has told Corriere dello Sport: "We are covered in attack and hence, Drogba will not arrive."
    Fernando Torres' big-money move to Chelsea in January led to growing speculation that Drogba could leave the west London club this summer.
    The 33-year-old, who is under contract with the Blues for a further year, endured a disappointing second half of last season, scoring just four goals in 20 Premier League appearances.

    Ji - set for Sunderland medical.
    JI DONG-WON SET FOR SUNDERLAND

    South Korea club Chunnam Dragons have confirmed that striker Ji Dong-won is set to join Sunderland on a three-year deal.
    The 20-year-old international came to prominence at January's Asian Cup in which he scored four goals.
    "Ji Dong-won is joining Sunderland on a three-year contract," read a statement on Chunnam's official website.
    "The terms negotiated by the two clubs regarding transfer fee and salary will not be released publicly."
    According to reports in Seoul, the fee is will likely be around 2.1million and Sunderland had beaten off interest from PSV Eindhoven and Schalke to sign the striker, who scored 11 goals in 39 appearances for Chunnam since making his professional debut in 2010.
    "I had the impression that Sunderland really wanted me," Ji told Yonhap.
    "I know there will be stiff competition for playing time, and my goal is to become the player that the team wants me to be in six months.
    "I am also looking forward to playing against (Park) Ji-sung and (Lee) Chung-yong, whom I both admire."

    Chris Hughton - new Birmingham boss.
    CHRIS HUGHTON LANDS BIRMINGHAM JOB

    Chris Hughton has been appointed as Birmingham's new manager - just 10 days after Alex McLeish resigned to take charge of Aston Villa.
    The former Newcastle boss edged ahead of Roberto Di Matteo in the battle to take charge of the Carling Cup holders.
    A statement on the club's official website confirmed that Hughton will take charge of the Blues immediately and they will be hoping he can repeat his achievement at Newcastle in steering them to promotion from the Championship.
    Hughton has been out of football since parting company with the Magpies after a 3-1 defeat at West Brom in early December.
    But he has impressed Birmingham acting chairman Peter Pannu when being interviewed during the past few days.
    Di Matteo, sacked as West Brom head coach in February, was the other major candidate.
    City's Hong-King based owner, Carson Yeung, ratified Hughton's arrival at St Andrew's.
    It will be Yeung's first managerial appointment since taking control of Blues during the early part of the 2009-2010 campaign.
    Yeung is looking for Blues to regain their Premier League status at the first attempt.
    This was made clear to McLeish in a statement issued at the end of the season after defeat at Tottenham doomed them to relegation.
    Hughton spent 13 years as a player at Tottenham and then had spells as coach and assistant-manager at White Hart Lane between 1993 and 2007.
    He was appointed first team coach at Newcastle in 2008 and was appointed manager in October 2009.
    But, despite guiding them to promotion, Hughton was sacked 14 months later.
    One of his first tasks will be to try and persuade the likes of Ben Foster, Roger Johnson, Scott Dann and Craig Gardner to stay.

    Larsson - set for Sunderland talks.
    SEB LARSSON ARRIVES ON WEARSIDE

    Sunderland boss Steve Bruce was on Wednesday closing in on one of his summer transfer targets after midfielder Sebastian Larsson arrived on Wearside.
    The out-of-contract Birmingham winger travelled to the north-east for talks and a medical amid speculation that former Blues boss Alex McLeish was ready to hijack the Black Cats' pursuit and take the Swede to Aston Villa.
    Bruce identified Larsson and Coventry goalkeeper Keiren Westwood as two of three Bosman signings at the end of last season, and Sunderland are understood to be close to capturing both after their existing deals expire on June 30.
    Meanwhile, sources on Wearside have played down reports that the club has tabled a bid for Ipswich's highly-rated striker Connor Wickham.
    The Black Cats do have an interest in the player, who has also been linked with Liverpool, but they insist they have not yet made a formal offer.
