Transfer Talk: Latics' Kapo returns home
Saturday 09 January 2010
Wigan Athletic: Midfielder Olivier Kapo has moved to French side Boulogne on loan. The Frenchman signed for the Latics in July 2008 from Birmingham for £3.5m, but has seen his first-team chances limited to just 20 league games.
The former Juventus and Monaco player said of his latest move: "I want to fight as I did at Wigan. I can't wait to sense the smell of the dressing room and above all the smell of victory with Boulogne. I have the fortune that a top-flight team put out their hand to me and I seized it." Boulogne currently lie 19th in Ligue 1, three points from safety. Sarah Cobb
Livermore makes Posh move
Tottenham Hotspur: The Premier League side have loaned young midfielder Jake Livermore to Peterborough United for the remainder of the season. Mark Cooper's side have struggled this season, taking just 18 points from 24 games, form that saw Darren Ferguson depart the club in November. "Jake will give us a bit more bite in midfield, which will certainly give us another option," Cooper said. Livermore, 20, will join up with his new team-mates at the club's training camp in Tenerife and could make his debut against Derby next week. Adam Hulme
The Hull manager Phil Brown has rejected the rumour that midfielder Stephen Hunt will join Wolves. Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has dismissed suggestions that Robbie Keane may move to Aston Villa. Norwich manager Paul Lambert has distanced himself from reports linking him with the Burnley job.
