Transfer Rumours - May 28

Sport | Published: bring you all of the latest transfer talk from Wolves, West Brom, Aston Villa and Walsall.

We have scoured the back pages and the internet to bring you the latest transfer gossip.

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


Wolves are keeping tabs on Southend United goalkeeper Dan Bentley, in case Tomasz Kuszczak doesn't sign a new contract at Molineux.

Boss Kenny Jackett wants high-quality competition for No 1 Carl Ikeme, particularly as Aaron McCarey is suspended after failing a drugs test.

Former Manchester United and West Brom shot-stopper Kuszczak provided that last season, but has yet to commit himself to a fresh deal.

Bentley is being tracked by a number of clubs in the top division, after a starring role for Southend in their League Two play-off final victory.

West Ham, Brentford, Burnley, Bournemouth, Leeds and Bristol City have all been linked along with Wolves, who haven't yet decided to bid.



West Brom could bring in Luke Garbutt from Premier League rivals Everton by promising him he's the permanent solution for them at left-back.

The 22-year-old is surprisingly set to leave Goodison Park at the end of his contract this summer, having been unable to dislodge Leighton Baines.

There's will be no shortage of takers for the England Under-21 international, with Premier League sides Swansea City and Bournemouth also showing an interest.


Albion have struggled in the position all season, filling the gap with Joleon Lescott and Chris Brunt, with Sebastien Pocognoli out-of-favour. Garbutt would solve that problem.


Aston Villa are considering moving for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, whose value has risen after his call-up to the full England team.

Vardy finished the season by helping City to survival, which caught national boss Roy Hodgson's eye, and his club will battle to keep him.

The 28-year-old may also decide he wants to stay at the King Power Stadium, too, but Villa believe a £7million bid might tempt the Foxes.


All quiet at the Banks's Stadium.
