Transfer news and speculation, 19 June

Kia Joorabchian yesterday insisted that the Brazilian striker Jo, who is wanted by Manchester City, is fully-owned by the Russian club, CSKA Moscow. Joorabchian refuted claims that the proposed transfer flouted the Premier League rules which state third-party ownership is not allowed. In the case of £18m-rated Jo it is understood that CSKA have ownership but would have to pay 20 per cent of any sell-on fee to his former club Corinthians and to a South American investor. Joorabchian argues that such agreements are similar to those in other players with so-called "sell-on" contract clauses.
