Zola hopes to keep Neill

West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola remains hopeful of convincing Australian international Lucas Neill to remain at the club. "He told me that if anything could happen he would call me first," Zola said. "So far he has not called so I assume he is not going anywhere."

Wolfsburg coach Armin Veh has confirmed the club's interest in the Newcaslte striker Obafemi Martins.

Tuncay ready for Stuttgart

Middlesbrough striker Tuncay Sanli could be about to follow Stewart Downing out of the Teesside club with Stuttgart ready to match Boro's £8m valuation of the 27-year-old Turk.

Bobby deal alive

Hull manager Phil Brown insists the club's move for Fulham forward Bobby Zamora is still alive, despite Cottagers' manager Roy Hodgson's claims to the contrary.
