Transfer deadline day – Shane Long could be on the move
Republic of Ireland international Shane Long could be on the move on transfer deadline day.
The Southampton striker is being linked with a loan move to Championship club Bournemouth.
The Saints want to sign Josh King on a permanent deal from Bournemouth with former Cork City striker Long going the other way on a loan deal until the end of the season.
The 34-year-old has only started two games for Southampton this season.
Liverpool meanwhile are closing in on the signing of Ben Davies.
They’ve agreed a 2 million pound deal with Preston for the central defender, who’s currently having a medical at the Premier League champions.
Celtic were expected to sign Davies but the Scottish champions are set to secure a loan move for Everton right-back Jonjoe Kenny.
Brighton striker Glenn Murray has joined up with their former manager Chris Hughton at Nottingham Forest.
The window closes at 11pm in England and midnight in Scotland.
