Premier League clubs are eyeing up Championship talents as Aston Villa have “agreed personal terms” on a deal which will see them sign a Sheffield United loan player while Burnley are reportedly looking at a Cardiff City striker to replace Chris Wood after his £25 million move to Newcastle United.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough’s newest forward has revealed the part that teammate Eddie Nketiah played in his move to The Riverside and West Brom are preparing an audacious move to sign a rumoured Leeds United target.

Derby County boss Wayne Rooney says a current Rams forward will leave the club this month when his deal expires while Luton Town gaffer Nathan Jones is open to letting some of his players go if the right deal can be struck.

Nottingham Forest and Coventry City are amongst three clubs who are reportedly plotting moves for a Birmingham City defender while Huddersfield Town are being linked with a deal for an Oxford United star.

A Peterborough United midfielder, currently out on loan, is reportedly being eyed up by Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen who see him as an ideal replacement for one of their own players who could be joining Blackburn Rovers.
