Sheffield United are reportedly looking at Birmingham City’s Jota, who has scored one and assisted four goals so far this season.

Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam is said to be interested in the idea of returning to boyhood club Dundee as part of the management team.

Dundee sacked manager Neil McCann yesterday and Adam is thought to be keen to take up a player-coach role at the club.

Brentford’s search for a manager is over after they appointed interim boss Thomas Frank as their permanent manager.

West Brom’s are confident they can keep Harvey Barnes at the club despite reports he might return to parent club Leicester City in January.

The midfielder apparently turned down offers of more money at other clubs to join the Baggies in the summer.
