STUART ARMSTRONG looks set to sign a new deal at Celtic.

The midfielder, who was a substitute in last night’s 5-0 win over Astana, is understood to be close to putting pen to paper on a contract extension.

He’d been interesting a number of Premier League clubs, with Swansea the latest name to have been linked. (Daily Record)

Hibs want to sign Manchester City youngster Brandon Barker on a season long loan, according to The Sun.

The winger was at Dutch side NAC Breda last season.


Scotland star Oliver Burke looks set to leave RB Leipzig for a return to England, according to reports in Germany.

Tottenham are yet to sign anybody during this transfer window, and are instead fending off further interest in their current players.

The Sun reports that chairman Daniel Levy has warned that Dele Alli would not be sold even if £150million were to be offered – news which will disappoint Barcelona and Manchester City.

They also appear to be in no mood to entertain Chelsea’s interest in Danny Rose, according to the Evening Standard.

North London rivals Arsenal are also doing their best to deter bidders interested in Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Daily Star reports Manchester City have made a £60million bid for Sanchez, with the Express reporting a £45million bid has already been rejected.

The Sun reports that Arsene Wenger has told Oxlade-Chamberlain he wants him to stay for a “long time” as Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United circle.


It is no secret that United want Zlatan Ibrahimovic to re-sign when he has recovered from his knee injury, and the Independent says they will sweeten the deal with a little career development, offering the Swede a coaching role.
