They shoot...

Clarets chase winger

Burnley manager Owen Coyle says hopes of a move for Ecuador winger Fernando Guerrero are still alive, despite the player returning to Independiente del Valle. "He's gone back, but I will have dialogue with them," Coyle said of the 19-year-old.

Bent medical

Tottenham Hotspur striker Darren Bent will undergo a medical today ahead of a proposed move to Sunderland. The forward was ordered off a Spurs plane bound for China on Monday as his move to Wearside neared completion.

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 want Martins

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. "As far as I am concerned the door is not closed," Brown said. "The deal has been agreed and we're trying to agree personal terms – that's where we stand."

Finnan flies in to Fratton

Former Liverpool full-back Steve Finnan has joined Portsmouth on a one-year deal, after being released by Espanyol. Pompey manager Paul Hart has also been linked with Croatia striker Nikola Kalinic and Cardiff's Ross McCormack.

Thomas thrown to Wolves

Wolves have handed a trial to former England Under-21 international Jerome Thomas. The former Arsenal, Charlton and Portsmouth winger had a spell with Hull earlier this summer.

Baysse fancies Black Cats

Sedan defender Paul Baysse is close to a move to Sunderland after rejecting offers from Blackburn and West Ham. "The wages at Sunderland are 20 per cent bigger than ones offered by West Ham and Blackburn," the 21-year-old admitted. "I am attracted by it."
