Transfer News Today: Manchester United Set To Confirm Two Exits

Javier Hammer-dez

Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez is reportedly close to agreeing an £11.9m switch to West Ham, with the forward finally accepting he has no future at Old Trafford.

From Real Madrid to West Ham? The reverse Julien Faubert. This move might actually be good for Hernandez, though, who needs regular football quickly.

Jesse The Geordie

Another Manchester United player on the brink of an exit is the midfielder Jesse Lingard, who is closing in on a move to Newcastle.

That would make sense. It would. The England Under-21 midfielder needs game-time, and this would appear to be the perfect place to get it.


Pick Van Dijk

Southampton have made a £7m bid for the Celtic centre-back Virgil van Dijk, with Ronald Koeman keen to partner his fellow countryman with fellow new signing Steven Caulker.

What about Jose Fonte? Well, yeah. He was impressive last season and wouldn’t deserve to be dropped. Saints have plenty more games to play this season, though, given their European commitments.


Max Power


Bournemouth have re-signed attacker Max Gradel, who rejoins the club following his 2007/08 loan spell there and having scored the most Ligue 1 goals of 2015 so far for Saint-Etienne.

Clever move? Very. Gradel adds to Bournemouth’s attacking threat and he could be a huge hit back in Dorset.


Baba To The Bridge


Chelsea are closer than ever to signing Augsburg left-back Baba Rahman, after the Bundesliga club brought in his replacement already. 

About time. Yes. This one has rumbled on, but Rahman will act as the replacement for the now departed Filipe Luis at Stamford Bridge.
