We are not saying they are true – just that they are out there.


Wolves winger Bakary Sako could be heading to the Premier League from the relegated Championship club with Aston Villa, Fulham and Norwich all interested.


West Brom could find themselves muscled out of the race to sign Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony, 24, with Arsenal showing an interest in the Vitesse Arnhem forward.



As well as Sako, Aston Villa still want Manchester City midfielder Abdisalam Ibrahim, 22, but West Brom, Arsenal, Tottenham, Fulham and Swansea are also keeping tabs.

There are some suggestions that Aston Villa may look to re-sign Birmingham City defender Curtis Davies, 28, who left the claret and blues for St Andrew's in 2011.


Keith Fahey heads the list of players Birmingham City are releasing now the Championship season is at an end, along with Steven Caldwell, Morgaro Gomis, Pablo Ibanez and Adam Rooney.


But Birmingham have signed Olly Lee - son of former Newcastle and England midfielder Rob - on a one-year contract with an option of another 12 months in a free transfer from Barnet.

Blues have also offered goalkeeper Colin Doyle, Paul Robinson, Jonathan Spector, Wade Elliott and Akwasi Asante new deals from their existing playing staff.


All quiet at the Banks's Stadium today.
