That Adams isn’t going anywhere

Notwithstanding the fact that the Saints council this week was ready to accept an offer from Leeds for Adams, 23, for a loan agreement until the end of this season that could have led to a permanent move of £ 10 million to Elland Road.
But Hasenhuttl, his position at St. Mary is now much safer than it was six weeks ago when his team, after being defeated 9-0 at home by Leicester in October, were abandoned in the relegation zone, he said no – and the Southampton council backed away.

Thomas Lemar’s offers were rejected
Arsenal have already made an approach for French international Thomas Lemar of Atletico Madrid, but Mikel Arteta faces tough competition for his signing from Tottenham’s rivals.

Man Utd agrees the terms with Bruno Fernandes
Manchester United have agreed on personal terms with Bruno Fernandes while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gets closer to the point of making the Sporting Lisbon midfielder his fourth signature as Red Devils boss.
Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes was hired by United’s attempt to finalize a commission with Sporting, who hoped to get up to 68 million pounds for their captain.
Express Sport understands that United was willing to give Fernandes a contract worth £ 150,000 a week, which would represent a significant increase in his current salary.

The Telegraph now reports that United has resolved personal terms with Fernandes, who is expected to put the pen on paper with a contract of at least four and a half years.
United must now agree on a transfer fee with Sporting, which could be forced to dig a bail for initially requesting £ 68m for its protagonist due to financial problems they are experiencing.
Arsenal in advanced talks with PSG

Chelsea’s exchange plans
Chelsea are gearing up for Willian’s release and has made signing a wing their top transfer priority, says transfer expert Duncan Castles.
Chelsea appear ready to allow Olivier Giroud to leave the club this month, leaving them short of attack options. Blues coach Frank Lampard has said he is looking to strengthen his attack strength during the current window.
“Chelsea don’t seem to be willing to spend that much on a center forward,” said Castles Transfer window podcast.
“Their priorities, they told me, are elsewhere, particularly on the wing where they plan to lose Willian at the latest in the summer.
“They offered Willian a new contract, but only a one-year contract because of his age.
“Willian is understandably arguing that ‘I am better than a one-year contract, I am the best in the Premier League, there are many other clubs that would like to make me a long-term deal, so I won’t sign it.’
“So Chelsea are preparing for its release and at the moment they have told me they are focusing on the wings.”
