    Maxi Lopez: AC Milan move done

    MILAN SEAL MAXI LOPEZ DEAL

    AC Milan's pursuit of Carlos Tevez appears to be at an end after they formally registered the signing of Maxi Lopez with the Lega Serie A.
    The Italian league confirmed that the Rossoneri have lodged Lopez's contract with them at their Milan headquarters, a move which should halt Milan's pursuit of Manchester City forward Tevez.
    Lopez, who has scored three goals in 14 league appearances for Catania this season, joins Milan on loan, with the option to make the move permanent in the summer.
    Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani said earlier this week that should the club fail to acquire Tevez, they would instead sign Lopez. Galliani also set a deadline of today for a final decision on Tevez.
    Milan had already reached an agreement with Catania for Lopez last month but had not given up hope of signing their main target Tevez.
    Reports in Italy claim that City turned down Milan's final offer for Tevez, with the Barclays Premier League club reluctant to let the Argentina international leave on anything other than a permanent deal.
    Milan, their city rivals Inter and French outfit Paris St Germain were the three clubs heavily linked with Tevez this month.
    Inter and PSG had already withdrawn their interest, and Milan's move for Lopez would appear to leave Tevez without a route out of the Etihad Stadium this month.
    That fact was underlined by Tevez's advisor Kia Joorabchian earlier today, when he said in an interview with talkSPORT that his client could remain at City until the next transfer window.
    "We've been in negotiations with three big clubs," said Joorabchian.
    "I don't think anyone has reached the numbers City were hoping for.
    "At the moment it looks like Carlos will remain at City until this summer."

    Heskey: Must impress McLeish

    SUMMER DECISION ON HESKEY FUTURE

    Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish will address the future of Emile Heskey in the summer and hinted the veteran striker's form will have a bearing on his decision.
    Heskey, who has been linked with a move to former club Leicester, will return to the Villa squad for Sunday's FA Cup clash at Arsenal after a spell on the sidelines with an Achilles problem.
    The current contract of the former England player runs out in May and only then will McLeish weigh up the possible options.
    McLeish said: "We realise that this is a transitional period at the club so it is not right for us to make any quick decisions. The overall position is that we'll review things at the end of the season.
    "It's up to guys like big Emile to produce a few good performances between now and the end of the season by banging in a few goals, getting a few assists, and then we can address it at that time.
    "From what I've seen in training this morning, I would certainly say he will continue to give everything. Emile is a guy who gives everything and does everything he can for the team.
    "Will he go back to Leicester in the summer? I haven't got a clue."
    Heskey continued to make himself available for selection despite the Achilles setback until it became too serious to continue.
    McLeish said: "We've just been kind of managing him and allowing him to make an impact as a sub or for a certain amount of time in games.
    "It just became a bit intolerable for him but he's had a few scans and injections. He's fit to play."
    McLeish will look for on-loan Los Angeles Galaxy striker Robbie Keane to continue the form which brought him two goals on his full debut at Wolves.
    He also created a favourable impression when Gordon Strachan, his former manager at Coventry, was invited by former Aberdeen and Scotland team-mate McLeish to watch Villa train this week.
    He said: "I had Gordon in this week for lunch and to observe training and he said Robbie was making the same kind of movement he does now at the age of 20 at Coventry.
    "Gordon said he had been trying to teach that to other strikers at Coventry like Darren Huckerby, who did well for him, but it was difficult for them to make the kind of movement that Robbie did.
    "Gordon asked Robbie 'who taught you that kind of movement?' and Robbie told him it was all done playing in the streets. He was laying the ball off and spinning and that kind of stuff.
    "It was all stuff he did as a boy playing street football. It is a measure of how much he has made himself a very good footballer.
    "You can see in training that he loves it and wants to be involved all the time."

    David Dunn: New Blackburn deal

    DAVID DUNN EXTENDS BLACKBURN DEAL

    David Dunn has signed a new contract with Blackburn that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2013.
    The midfielder was a product of the Rovers youth team and, aside from a four year spell with Birmingham, has spent his whole career at Ewood Park.
    Manager Steve Kean told the club's website: "Everyone knows that not only is David Blackburn Rovers through and through, but he remains a top player and a key member of our squad.
    "He has been at the top of his game over recent weeks and we are all delighted to see him extend his association with the club."
    The 32-year-old made his Rovers debut in September 1998 in a goalless draw with Everton and has gone on to make 313 appearances over both spells at the club, scoring 53 goals.
    Dunn left Rovers for St Andrews in 2003 but was brought back to Ewood Park in January 2007 by then manager Mark Hughes.

    Richie Foran: New deal

    DOUBLE BOOST FOR INVERNESS

    Inverness have received a double signing boost by extending captain Richie Foran's contract and signing Frenchman Claude Gnakpa.
    Former Motherwell midfielder Foran was due to be out of contract in the summer but he has signed a new two-year deal.
    And Inverness also completed their second signing in two days by bringing in French winger Gnakpa from Walsall.
    Inverness manager Terry Butcher said: "Richie is an inspirational player for this club.
    "He's done a magnificent job for us in the past two years and still has a major contribution to make.
    "Recently he's been performing a new holding role in midfield and done extremely well there.
    "Richie commands the respect of the players and the management team alike.
    "Maurice Malpas and I signed up for new two year deals and this continuity is maintained by Richie committing for a similar period."
    Gnakpa, a 6ft 2in 28-year-old who can also play in defence, has signed until the end of the season.
    Butcher added: "I have been tracking Claude for a good number of years, but never managed to get him so we're very pleased that he has flown north and put pen to paper.
    "He's big, strong and pacy and can score goals, so he will be a very exciting asset to the club.
    "Having already landed striker Sam Winnall from Wolves on loan, it gives us more depth in a pool which has continuously been depleted by serious injuries."
    Gnakpa started his career at Montpellier and had spells in Spain and with FC Vaduz in Liechtenstein before moving to Peterborough and then Luton.

    Dempsey: Wants to play in the Champion League

    CLINT DEMPSEY REVEALS CL DREAM

    Fulham star Clint Dempsey has admitted his ambition to play in the Champions League.

    The revelation will alert a number of clubs who have been monitoring his contract situation, with his current deal having 18 months remaining before it expires.
    Sky Sports sources earlier in January revealed QPR were interested in Dempsey, but his form and Champions League dreams could alert some of Europe's heavyweights.
    The 28-year-old underlined his ability during the defeat of Newcastle last weekend by becoming the first American to score a hat-trick in the Premier League.
    Dempsey, who reached the Europa League final with Fulham in 2010, continues to strive for success, and he said in The Times: "You should never get content.
    "I want to play in the Champions League."
    The USA international added: "Nobody thought I would get this far. I want to go as far as I can."

    Michael Uchebo: Won't be joining Rangers

    NO RANGERS DEAL FOR UCHEBO

    Rangers manager Ally McCoist has confirmed striker Michael Uchebo will not be moving to Ibrox.
    The Nigerian joined the champions this week with a view to a trial period at Murray Park.
    However, McCoist has decided not to pursue the player despite reports in the press claiming his Dutch club VVV Venlo had agreed a 1million fee.
    "He came in and trained but he's left again and that was a club decision," he said.
    "He came in and trained (on Thursday) but we thought it was in the best interests of us and him that he pursued other options.
    "To my knowledge there has been absolutely no contact between the clubs, never mind a fee agreed."

    Roman Bednar: Seasiders move

    ROMAN BEDNAR JOINS BLACKPOOL

    West Brom striker Roman Bednar has ended his four-and-a-half-year spell at the club and joined Blackpool on a free transfer.
    Bednar, 28, made 105 appearances for the Baggies, scoring 34 times but has slipped down the pecking order during the past 18 months.
    Albion sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth said: "Roman has been unable to break into the first team this season due to the fierce competition for places. I think this move suits all parties."
    Last season the former Hearts player had spells on loan at Leicester and Turkish side Ankaragucu.

    Pawel Brozek: Wanted by Rangers

    RANGERS HOPING TO SIGN BROZEK

    Rangers manager Ally McCoist is hoping to beat the transfer deadline and secure the services of Polish striker Pawel Brozek.
    The Ibrox boss is keen for Brozek to join the Scottish champions on loan from Turkish club Trabzonspor.
    But McCoist sees the player as a potential strike partner for Nikica Jelavic, rather than a replacement for the Croatian, who was the subject of a failed bid from West Ham this week.
    McCoist was quoted in a number of newspapers saying: "We have touched base with his club in terms of seeing if a deal can be put together. The lad wants to play as it's in his best interests with the Euros just round the corner.
    "I haven't been told it is connected to the Jelavic deal, I'm hoping it is not as I fancy the two of them working together but time will tell."
