Transfer news: Gosling in talks with Newcastle

Dan Gosling has held talks with Newcastle regarding a move from Everton. The Toffees failed to put a verbal contract offer into writing back in May, meaning the Magpies can pick up the 20-year-old midfielder for free.

Sheffield Wednesday

The Owls have signed the Republic of Ireland striker Clinton Morrison on a free transfer from Coventry City. The 31-year-old, who has scored 151 career goals, is aiming to boost Wednesday's chances of a return to the Championship following last season's relegation.

Hull City

The Tigers have signed midfielders James Harper and Nolberto Solano. Harper, 29, has signed a two-year contract after leaving Sheffield United, while 35-year-old Solano has left Leicester to agree a one-year deal.


Striker Kevin Doyle has ended speculation he will leave the club this summer. "It is a pleasure to play for Wolves, I'm happy here," he said. The forward Stefan Maierhofer looks set to move after being told he is surplus to requirements at Molineux.


The manager Steve Cotterill has revealed John Utaka is leaving the club. Sunderland have been linked with the 28-year-old Nigerian forward. "There's definitely a move on the cards for John," Cotterill said. Utaka joined Pompey for £7m in July 2007.
