    West Ham's Javier Hernandez admits he did ask for a January transfer but has vowed to give everything for the club now he is staying.

    Leicester City don't know when they will see Riyad Mahrez again following their refusal to let him move to Manchester City.

    Arsene Wenger has finally admitted he made a £60m mistake not selling Alexis Sanchez last summer.

    DAILY TELEGRAPH

    Arsenal sold Theo Walcott on the cheap as a goodwill gesture due to the winger's long service, according to Everton manager Sam Allardyce.

    Crystal Palace have agreed a deal to sign goalkeeper Vicente Guaita - however he cannot join the club until July.

    Leicester are on red alert over Daniel Opare's fall-out with Augsburg.

    Crystal Palace intend to stand by their pre-match cheerleaders The Crystals despite the moves by Formula One and the Professional Darts Corporation to end their relationship with 'grid girls' and 'walk-on girls'.

    Leicester did not want to sell Islam Slimani to West Ham because the former Premier League champions are still annoyed over comments made by Karren Brady.

    THE GUARDIAN

    Crystal Palace have signed a pre-contract agreement to sign Vicente Guaita under the Bosman ruling, with the Spanish goalkeeper to complete his move on 1 July once his contract at Getafe expires.

    Leicester City players are unhappy with plans to try to reintegrate Riyad Mahrez into the squad after the winger missed training again yesterday and stayed away from the club for a third successive day.
