Wolves winger Helder Costa has reportedly told friends that he favours a move to Leeds United this summer.

The forward has seen his impact at Molineux fall over recent months, having struggled to find form in the Premier League over the course of last season.

Leeds are rumoured to be interested in bringing him to Elland Road this summer, and those links have intensified after Costa followed the club on Instagram this week.

Meanwhile, reports on the continent claim that Sporting CP could beat Wolves to the signing of Liverpool youngster Rafael Camacho.

The 19-year-old is wanted by Wolves as he looks to move on from Liverpool, with first-team opportunities unlikely under Jurgen Klopp.

Reports claim that he could head to Portugal though, with Liverpool apparently willing to accept a bid of just over £5m.


West Brom

Reported West Brom target Jamal Lowe will cost £3m this summer.

The Portsmouth winger has been linked with a step up to the Championship this season, having failed to gain promotion from League One in the last campaign.

Reports suggest that Leeds, Middlesbrough, Millwall and Nottingham Forest are all keen.


West Brom striker Jay Rodriguez is just 2/1 to join rivals Aston Villa this summer.

The bookies are taking bets on the forward's next destination, with a move away from The Hawthorns likely following the club's continued stay in the second tier.

Norwich, Newcastle, Sheffield United and Southampton are all in the running according to the bookmakers.

Aston Villa

Bristol City are reportedly targeting a move for Aston Villa striker Scott Hogan.

The former Brentford man has struggled since signing up at Villa Park, and could depart with Dean Smith bolstering for the club's Premier League return.

The Republic of Ireland international spent the second half of last season on-loan at Sheffield United.

Meanwhile, Villa are reportedly looking at offering John McGinn a new contract to ward off interest in the midfielder this summer.

McGinn was a vital player in Villa's promotion, with reports suggesting Leicester City and West Ham could be keen to sign the Scot.

Villa will not fancy entertaining any suggestions of a departure, and are reportedly set to sit down with McGinn to sort a new long-term contract.


No fresh Walsall rumours today.
