The Daily Mail now have Everton at the head of the queue for Stephen Ireland. Apparently The Toffees want him on loan.
Werder Bremen are again being linked with defender Curtis Davies.
Sky Sports are the latest to link us to Middlesbrough defender David Wheater. This would make sense, he is young and would be available for a fairly low price as he could leave Boro on a free next summer as he will turn 24.
