MATCH takes a look at the hottest gossip flying around the footy world on Deadline Day!


Good news, Liverpool fans! The Reds have agreed a £1.6 million fee with Preston North End for centre-back Ben Davies ahead of tonight’s deadline! The 25-year-old had agreed pre-contract terms with Celtic, but now looks set for a move to Anfield!


Ben Davies might not be the only new face through the door at Anfield today, either! Liverpool are working on paying a loan fee of around £2.5 million to sign Schalke centre-back Ozan Kabak until the end of the season, with an option to buy the 20-year-old in the summer!




We’ve heard that an unnamed top-six Premier League club has offered Diego Costa the chance to sign for them on a deal until the end of the season! However, the ex-Chelsea striker is looking for a two-and-a-half-year contract, so it’s unlikely to get done. Gutted!



Bournemouth are looking to bolster their squad before tonight’s deadline to boost their chances of promotion back to the Premier League! However, their bid for Newcastle United’s Matt Ritchie has been rejected. The Magpies have said that he’s going nowhere!


It seems increasingly likely that Ainsley Maitland-Niles will be staying at Arsenal! The Gunners are reluctant to loan him out to Leicester City, given that they’re both challenging for a spot in Europe, but Southampton and West Brom are also both interested!
