Celtic are reportedly leading the race for Bolton youngster Luca Connell, with Wolves and Spurs both thought to be keen.

Suggestions in the local press claim that Celtic have made a bid for the promising youngster, although Bolton will not be forced to sell despite their financial struggles of late.

The 18-year-old is primarily a defensive midfielder, but is also able to play left-back or left midfield.

Meanwhile, Wolves are being linked with promising Belgian defender Zinho Vanheusden.

The 19-year-old centre back is currently on the books at Inter Milan, but reports claim both Wolves and Southampton are keen on him.

Arsenal were also thought to be interested, but the Serie A side are apparently keen to include a buy-back clause in any deal, putting the Gunners off.

West Brom

Reports claim that Celtic are set to end their interest in Rekeem Harper, instead opting for David Turnbull.

Celtic have reportedly agreed a £2.8m deal for the midfielder, although this would supposedly end their interest in Harper.

The news will be a relief for Albion, who risked losing the youngster for less than £300k if he joins a side outside of the English leagues.

West Ham have reportedly ended their interest in West Brom striker Salomon Rondon.

The striker is being heavily linked with moves away, as he has been since last summer, joining Newcastle on-loan for the entirety of last season.

Reports on the continent now claim that the Hammers are no longer interested in the striker, with Newcastle the favourites to sign him permanently.

Aston Villa

Aston Villa are being linked with a shock move for Brighton defender Lewis Dunk.

The central defender could cost as much as £30m according to some reports, although it's unlikely that Brighton will be willing to entertain offers for one of their prized assets.

Reports also suggest that Leicester are interested, with a move likely should Harry Maguire depart the King Power Stadium this summer.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that Southampton may have to consider allowing Matt Targett to leave St Marys this summer.

Villa have been linked with a move for the left-back, who is keen to find first-team football, having featured sporadically at Southampton.

It's thought that the club may need to make a decision between Targett and Ryan Bertrand, who also plays on the left side of defence.


No fresh Walsall rumours today.
