Molla Wague looks to be Watford bound, West Ham have been told they have not matched Newcastles offer for Loftus Cheek.

Watford may be looking to make a £750,000 bid for 20-year-old Mozambican winger Witiness Chimoio João Quembo, more commonly known as Witi. Currently in the last season of his contract with Portuguese outfit CD Nacional, Watford may look to capitalise and acquire the former SL Benfica loanee at a reduced rate in the January 2017 transfer window.
The highly rated Witi has made 6 appearances for Nacional so far this season (as of 11 December 2016), and could provide extra squad depth and cover for the likes of Nordin Amrabat and Roberto Pereyra. Witi is predominantly a left winger, but is able to play on the right side too or even towards the centre of the field.

Expect to see Paredes, Arlauskis and possibly Kabasele (on loan) depart in January. Apart from that the Pozzo's are very happy with the squad.

AFC Wimbledon will imminently confirm the signing of Billy Knott on a free transfer. Knott was recently released by Bradford City. The former Chelsea and West Ham youth player joined the Dons on loan from Sunderland in 2012, and was the Dons' Young Player of the Year for the 2011/ 12 season, despite only joining them in January of that year. The Dons will bring him in to provide competition at left midfield and for the central midfield positions.
Wimbledon are also considering making a move for former academy player Luke Gambin, who starred for Barnet at left midfield last season. Sutton-born Gambin recently broke into the Malta national team, and will hope to cement a place in the team as Malta head into a World Cup Qualifying group that includes Scotland and England. Gambin would be brought in to replace Sean Rigg who is on his way back to the South West of England, with Cheltenham and Yeovil both interested in signing the Gloucester-born wide midfielder. However Rigg may drop to the non-league to sign for Forest Green Rovers, where he spent some time as a youth player.
Wimbledon striker Adebayo Azeez will sign a 6 month loan deal with Dagenham and Redbridge in the coming months. Azeez went on loan to the Daggers in 2014, scoring 3 times in 15 appearances. The recently-relegated Daggers host the Dons in a pre-season friendly in late July, and it is likely Azeez will join them soon after that friendly game.
The Dons will hope that some consistent game time will sharpen up the pacy striker who struggled to finish his chances at the back end of the 2015/ 16 season.
AFC Wimbledon will give trial to powerful striker Uche Ikpeazu over pre-season period, as they look to complete their young strike force for next season. The former Watford player gained plenty of experience in League One over the last two seasons with Crewe, Doncaster, Port Vale and Blackpool. Although he is very strong, he admittedly possesses only a slight amount of the strength of departing Adebayo Akinfenwa, but Ikpeazu can provide a lot more speed in attack.

Burnley are set to bid for Watford left back Tommie Hoban. Hoban is known to Dyche after spending time in the Watford youth system following his release from Arsenal.
Hoban played an integral role in Watford's promotion from the championship but was plagued by injuries last term. Hoban is expected to challenge Stephen Ward for the left back berth as the Clarets look to bolster their defensive reinforcements for next season.

Stoke City have agreed a deal to sign young AFC Wimbledon goalkeeper Will Mannion. The tall 17-year-old shot stopper featured in goal during The Dons' FA Youth Cup run, which saw them knock out Watford and Newcastle both at their respective Premier League stadiums. He was also invited by England to a goalkeeper training camp at St. George's Park in Burton, which is where he first came to the attention of scouts from many Premier League clubs. Mannion will join The Potters' under-21 squad next season. The Dons had offered Mannion a pro contract but the youngster turned it down.
Karleigh Osborne will train with AFC Wimbledon over the pre-season period after his release by Bristol City. Osborne joined on loan from The Robins until the end of the season, but a long-term injury prevented him from playing any part in recent months. Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley has kept Osborne with The Dons despite his injury ruling him out for the season, and has the centre back in his plans for next season.

With a week to go of the transfer window, he latest names linked with the Swans are follows:-
Sandro Ramirez of Barca, Spurs heavily linked, so are Newcastle, has a €12m clause that would need to be activated. Is is nothing more than a rumour currently as I have not heard anything concrete.
Gregoire Defrel of Sassuolo is a player that the Swans were not interested in until the appointment of Guidolin. It is a player he has scouted extensively while in his role at Watford and Udinese. The interest has remained with him so is a name he has suggested.
Balde Keita of Lazio is seen as a player who could inject much needed cutting edge from out wide as the team has lacked real width for a while. Bid has been made, been rejected, waiting to see if another will be made.
Scott Sinclair, bid has been made, Aston Villa are waiting to see if Newcastle are going to follow up their enquiry with a bid to get as much as they can by starting a mini bidding war.
Seydou Doumbia of Roma, all interest in him appears to be over now as Guidolin has concerns over how he would adapt to England after failing so badly in Italy.
Jordan Rhodes of Blackburn is of interest but not at the £12m asking price, possibly a deal with Eder is the answer but again nothing substantial to report.
Ravel Morrison of Lazio is of interest to Bournemouth and Swans, but no enquiry has been made by the Swans, he is on their list of targets however.
Ogenyi Onazi of Lazio is a target, is available and well liked by Guidolin, and wants a move to England. The problem is that Swans hierarchy are aware this is not the key area that needs strengthening as Cork and Britton are both in form. This is shame as if the other areas had been strengthened earlier then this is the type of deal that could be completed promptly.
Dwight Gayle is under consideration but Palace will only consider a swap for Gomis.
Guidolin has assessed the squad since the Watford game and all the murmurs from within the club is that they will try and be active in the final week of the window.
Guidolin is looking to implement his 3-5-1-1 formation in his first home game.
24 Jan 2016 11:47:13
It's Everton today and we need someone to put the ball in the back of the net. Guidolin has only been in the Club a week mate and lads are struggling to get there heads around the new formation. So probably only change being Gomis back in.
They've tried to get all their old players back on loan, but the priority is a striker. Duvan Zapata the latest being discussed.
24 Jan 2016 13:10:54
I didn't say today's game was the home game. I said Guidolin will implement his style and formation in his first home game, as the Everton game came too soon to implement them.
24 Jan 2016 13:20:55
Further to my reply, I don't understand any point you're making?
The players are not struggling with the new formation, as it hasn't been overly used in training yet.
We need someone to put the ball in the net - that's why most of what I'm hearing is for offensive players, as my post highlights. So kind of a moot point from you there.
We tried to get De Guzman back on loan, enquired about Allen and have bid for Sinclair. We hold an interest in Borini but I feel that is just as much to counter Fat Sam trying to unsettle Ayew as it is an actual interest.
Priority is a striker, and it won't be Zapata.
24 Jan 2016 13:38:07
Defrel never worked at Watford, only Udinese under the Pozzos.
24 Jan 2016 17:46:31
Defrel is a striker at Sassuolo, I was referring to Guidolin, he was a consultant at Watford and some sort of Director of Football role at Udinese after taking a break from management.
19 Jan 2016 11:27:11
Liverpool have agreed to sell Jerome Sinclair to Watford.

18 Jan 2016 10:31:10
Daniel pudil has been a brilliant signing and we should sign him on a permanent deal because he has played most of the games this season and has scored goals for us and we should get promoted if he signs a permanent deal and then we don't need to look for another left back.
08 Jan 2016 15:26:40
