QPR defender Steven Caulker looks set to rebuild his career at Celtic, according to the Mirror.

The 25-year-old previously worked under Brendan Rodgers during a season-long loan spell with Swansea and has recently gone public with his battles with depression, drinking and gambling.

The Herald reports, however, that Rodgers believes the player’s priority is to find his feet before making any moves.

Matt Crooks’ Rangers departure looks imminent, with The Scottish Sun reporting that a bid from Northampton Town for the 23-year-old has been accepted.

The midfielder hasn’t played a full game for the Ibrox club since joining last summer.


St Johnstone have taken PSG attacker Romain Habran on trial, according to The Courier.

The 23-year-old has spent most of his career loaned out to the French lower leagues from the Paris giants’ B team.

Down south

The Independent reports that West Ham are set to beat Newcastle to the loan signing of Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart. The deal is expected to include an option to make the switch permanent if the England international impresses at the London Stadium. Newcastle will switch their attention to Hammers keeper Darren Randolph once the Hart deal goes through, according to the Newcastle Chronicle.


Juventus are preparing to join Manchester United in a bidding war for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic, says the Daily Mail. Matic will be allowed to depart Stamford Bridge once the Blues tie up a deal for Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko. However, the Daily Express claims that Arsenal are prepared to offer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in a part-exchange deal to bring Matic to north London.
