Little bit of transfer gossip, Marlon Harewood is still being linked with an exit although he said yesterday he was happy to stay and fight – (Harewood Willing To Fight) – that will surely change if the following links are correct?

On Saturday the Daily Mirror claimed that Villa were going to try to bring Manchester City’s striker Daniel Sturridge to Villa Park as the youngster’s contract runs out and he could move on a free. The striker has played for England’s Under-17 and Under-19 sides and has also been a target for Chelsea who, it was claimed in the Mirror last August, wanted to make him their new Didier Drogba. High praise indeed!

Meanwhile today, in the News of the World (known worldwide for it’s accuracy!), they link us to 19-year-old (20 this week) Kyle Naughton from Sheffield United. The red top claims the right-back is rated at around £6million. The sticking point is the youngster has signed a lengthy contract so the Blades aren’t under any pressure to sell him. The paper says: ‘The pacy right-back also possesses a useful long throw and is likely to attract bids during the January transfer window’ and claim he is ‘being chased by a host of Premier League clubs.’

Martin O’Neill apparently watched him play at Bramall Lane last week.
