Some of the latest championship rumors from our colleagues at the Mirror.
Pompey pushes to grab Yates
Portsmouth presses for Nottingham Forest midfielder Ryan Yates as soon as the transfer window opens.
Forest band Yates, 21, signed a new three-year contract in the summer. But he just made an EFL Cup appearance this semester.
League-1 leaders Portsmouth want Yates, who is estimated at around £ 500,000, and are ready to pay cash to grab him permanently next month.
Yates impressed the last loan period in Notts County and Scunthorpe. Hull is interested in a potential loan next month.
Bruce is to be offered a reading job
Steve Bruce will be offered a return to Reading management following the release of Paul Clement.
Clement got the shoe after just nine months, having scored only four wins in just 20 league games.
Bruce, 57, has been canceled by Aston Villa since October.
Other names on the shortlist to replace Clement include Carans of Swansea and Sheffield, Carlos Carvalhal, and the legends of Royals, Graeme Murty, and Phil Parkinson.
Clemens leaves only one day after Nigel Howe re-elects the Chief Executive of Reading.
Rangel ready for new QPR deal
Angel Rangel is close to finalizing a new deal with QPR.
The 36-year-old joined a January change, but his stay at Loftus Road is expected to be extended.
He said, "I was interested in other clubs, but I have to be grateful and thankful that the team has given this opportunity. I do not think it would be the right move to change clubs and leave QPR behind. "
Leeds can not get his hands on Woodman
Leeds United may be thwarted in their attempts to sign Freddie Woodman on loan.
The Elland Road Club will temporarily receive the signature of the young keepers of Newcastle United in January, but the Magpies will not leave the 21-year-old until goalkeeper Karl Darlow recovers from an injury.
