Transfer Rumours - May 26th brings you all of the latest transfer talk from Wolves, West Brom, Aston Villa and Walsall.


We're not saying they're true, just that they're out there.


Wolves won't have any success in their attempts to bring in Liverpool youngster, Harry Wilson it seems.

The Reds youngster was reportedly a target at Molineux, but any deal is likely on the rocks after Liverpool dismissed interest from Scottish giants Celtic.

Jurgen Klopp is thought to rate the 20-year-old highly, and having given the cold shoulder to Celtic, is unlikely to treat Wolves any differently.

Even a short-term loan looks unlikely, with the German eager to integrate the winger with his first-team next season.

West Brom

Watford are eager to fend off interest in striker, Troy Deeney this summer, slapping a £35m price tag on the 28-year-old.

West Brom are keen on the goalscorer, who hit the net ten times this season, but such a swollen cost may have them look elsewhere.

Deeney hails from the West Midlands and is reportedly open to a move, but the Hornets are unwilling to let him leave cheaply.

Aston Villa

Steve Bruce is keen on talking to Burnley winger, George Boyd.

Thought to be an admirer of the 31-year-old, Bruce is apparently keen to bring in the Scot, after he rejected a deal to stay at Turf Moor.

Derby are also thought to be interested, so Villa will need to battle to secure his services for next season.

Meanwhile, Villa look set to miss out on Chelsea youngster, Tammy Abraham.

The starlet had a great season with Bristol City in the last campaign on-loan from the Premier League Champions, but is set to head to a top flight club for his next spell away from Stamford Bridge.

Newcastle are rumoured to be most likely to secure his services as they target Premier League survival after gaining promotion.


Walsall won't be signing rumoured target, Gozie Ugwu, after the 24-year-old joined Chesterfield this week.

The forward was on the books at Woking but left this summer as a free agent, having scored 17 league goals.

Jon Whitney had watched the former Reading prospect, but will now need to look elsewhere if he plans on signing a striker.
