Football: Wimbledon move for Eadie

Click to follow
Wimbledon have made a bid valued at around pounds 3m to sign the Norwich City striker, Darren Eadie. The Dons' manager, Joe Kinnear, has offered about pounds 2m in cash plus two of his squad players in return for the former England Under-21 international.

Wimbledon have offered Norwich two from Alan Reeves, Andy Pearce and Andy Clarke - but they could yet make a bigger cash bid for Eadie after the Queen's Park Rangers striker, Daniele Dichio, turned down a move to Wimbledon.

Slaven Bilic, the Croatian defender, looks set to stay with West Ham for at least the rest of the season, after deciding against a pounds 5m move to Everton.

Queen's Park Rangers have renewed their interest in Stoke City's top scorer, Mike Sheron, by tabling a pounds 2.5m offer for the 21-goal striker - but they face competition from at least two other clubs. Both QPR and West Ham had offers turned down earlier this season. Lou Macari, the Stoke manager, said yesterday he would "discuss the situation" with Sheron.

Tranmere's Ged Brannan, who can play in defence or midfield, is to join Manchester City for pounds 750,000. Lee Jones, the Liverpool striker, is pondering offers from Preston, Crewe and Ipswich, who have all agreed to meet the pounds 100,000 asking price for the former Wrexham man.

Birmingham City have had a pounds 1.5m offer for the Port Vale winger Jon McCarthy rejected, but are hopeful of signing the Derby midfielder Darryl Powell for a similar fee.

Peterborough have given an 18-month contract to Roger Stanislaus, the left-back who was banned for 12 months by the Football Association and sacked by Leyton Orient last year after testing positive for cocaine.

Rangers are set to take Manchester City's third-choice goalkeeper Andy Dibble to Ibrox for a nominal fee.
