The reason Jason Puncheon is training with the youth squad is because he has an attitude problem. He was sent out on loan last season no because he wasn't good enough, but because he got frustrated that he had his place in the team taken by a teenager. When he returned from loan he refused to sit on the subs bench, so from then on the club and manager have decided it would be better if he left, so he has not gone on tour with the main squad as it's better he is left in england to try and finalise any deal, so in the meantime keeping fit the best way possible.(1)(0)

Scott "tap in" Fitzgerald is being lined up for a shock return to Griffin Park. Uwe Rosler has long been an admirer of clinical finishing within the 6 yard box and is confident there will be an abundance of opportunities next season for "tap in" to demonstrate his potency from close distance to the Griffin Park faithful. Wealdstone FC are unlikely to let the 31 year old go cheap, with manager Gordon Bartlett demanding £25,000 and a savaloy dinner from the Bees before he will allow his star front man to rejoin Brentford FC. Fans have reacted with mixed reactions to the news, with one Brentford message board poster, David Barnes (BA (Hons) Kent University), noting "there's only two Scott Fitzgeralds, and they are both dismal if you ask me".(0)(0)

Sanchez wants Old Trafford move Udinese's chilean winger Alexis Sanchez has made his intentions clear in an interview with reporters from an Italian newspaper as he indicated that a move to the premier league champions would be the most ideal for his development.

Although a move to Barcelona has not been ruled out, Sanchez and his agent explained that the reasoning behind this statement is that he would get much more first team football at Utd.

It is thought that Sanchez's agent Fernando Felicevich persuaded him to talk to the press in an attempt to increase Man Utd's interest in him, as he has recently fallen towards the bottom of Sir Alex Ferguson's world famous shortlist.

Ferguson's recent interest in Samir Nasri & Wesley Sneijder have meant that Sanchez has been put aside for the time being, as S.A.F continues to chase a replacement for Paul Scholes.

However, if Utd regain interest in Sanchez's services, it is believed that Udinese want a fee in the region of £40m and Utd will also have to beat off competition form Barca as Pep Guardiola's desire to make Sanchez a Barca player is still there.(18)(24)

Downing has already verbally agreed to join Liverpool and personal terms have already been agreed, which is why Commoli and Kenny have flown to the Far East on tour. the only issue to be resolved is the fee between Villa and Liverpool, something that is currently being thrashed out.. Fee's reported are £18.5m, however the fee is thought to be in the region of £17m, rising to £20m in add-ons. Villa are also keen on taking N'Gog as part of the deal, but this may go through as a seperate deal - as rumours are N'Gog doesn't want to go as Villa's future looks uncertain. Downing will be confirmed by Friday this week.

This then leaves Liverpool looking for a Left Back, at Aly Cissokho is now the prefered choice with his club willing to sell.... Liverpool are hopeful a bid of £8m will be enough, expect this deal to go through next week.(23)(20)

Man City news:

Tevez will move on an initial loan deal back to Corinthians, the fee eventually $40m (approx £35m) will be paid in installments when the transfer is eventually completed next summer.

Nasri will join for £22m or 19m + Given depending on agreements between players and clubs, with the major barrier being Given's wages.

Kun Aguero will be tevez's replacement and his buy-out clause will be met in order to seal the transfer, this fee is £38m or 40m Euros to Ath.Mad.

These will be all the incoming deals for the summer, Mancini said he wanted to tie the deals up as soon as possible and things look to be speeding up, however a lot of the 'potential' transfers do look dependent on tevez.(18)(13)

Former England manager Howard Wikinson has emerged as leading candidate for the assistant manager's job at Brentford FC. Wilkinson has close links with Rosler from his early management spells and has been seeking a return to football since ending disastrous periods in charge of Sunderland and Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua. Often dubbed the second "most boring man in football" behind Trevor Brooking, Wilkinson is said to be favoured by new boss Uwe Rosler who is confident he will have a "calming effect" on a young Brentford team. Wilkinson's qualities are required as Rosler tries to wean starlets off the influence of rappers Lil Wayne and Lupe Fiasco (notably favoured by Myles Weston and Karleigh Osborne), whose music he fears may have a disharmonic effect in the dressing room. Rosler has instead proposed that high intensity "German Techno Beats" are played before and after each game, in the hope its musical virtues translate on to the playing field.(4)(7)
