STEVEN NAISMITH is a player in demand this January, and the latest club linked with him is Hearts.

Having apparently offered his services to former club Rangers for free, and also interesting Kilmarnock where he made his name, the 31-year-old could now be heading to Tynecastle.

The Daily Record reports that the Jambos have made an enquiry to Norwich, who are understood to be very happy to offload the Scotland star, about a loan deal.

Craig Levein, meanwhile, has brought in Demetri Mitchell on loan from Manchester United.

Woking midfielder Nathan Ralph is a wanted man, and Neil McCann hopes to bring him to Dundee.

Manchester United are looking to bolster their strike force in the January transfer window and are reported to have made inquiries about signing Jamie Vardy from Leicester City and Javier Hernandez from West Ham, according to the Telegraph.

Vardy missed out on the golden boot in the 2015-16 season by one goal and already has nine in this campaign, while Hernandez played at Old Trafford between 2010 and 2015.

Everton are in talks with Arsenal to sign forward Theo Walcott, Sam Allardyce has admitted.

“If that is possible to get over the line I’d be delighted,” said the Toffees boss.

Liverpool are looking to offload Daniel Sturridge – but want £30million for the striker, the Liverpool Echo reports. Sturridge, 28, is looking to leave Anfield during the transfer window for first-team football as he bids to be part of England’s World Cup squad.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp wants to bring in Leicester and Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, the Daily Express reports.

Antonio Conte is to leave the Chelsea hot seat at the end of the season, the Daily Mail says. The paper reports that the new Stamford Bridge boss could be Massimiliano Allegri, who is currently at Juventus, or former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique. Former boss Carlo Ancelotti is not in the frame despite winning the double in 2010, it is reported.
