Wolves have been linked with a move for Porto ace Hector Herrera.

The Mexican international has previously played under Nuno and would add more depth in midfield.

But the club could face competition from Inter Milan should they firm up their initial interest.

West Brom

West Brom are very keen on Newcastle United midfielder Isaac Hayden.

The move may prove a difficult one to broker with the Magpies apparently keen to keep the 23-year-old.


Hayden has started two of the last three games under Rafa Benitez.

Aston Villa

Dean Smith is set to test the resolve of Sheffield Wednesday and make a bid for Adam Reach.

Reach has scored six goals in 27 Championship appearances for the Owls.


Villa want the 25-year-old to improve their attack as they look to close the gap on the top six and make a late charge for the end of season play-offs.


Saddlers boss Dean Keates is targetting the right characters and personnel as Walsall prepare for a very important month.

Keates is keen to bring in multiple players to the Banks's after a disappointing recent run of results.
