• West Brom manager Tony Pulis is mulling over a move to take Enner Valencia away from east London, according to the Telegraph . Valencia had a difficult season under Slaven Bilic, suffering from injuries, and with West Ham keen to add a big name to their roster of strikers he may find himself without a role.

• West Ham are not lacking for ambition or sentiment in their quest for a new striker. They are considering a move to prise talismanic frontman Jamie Vardy away from Premier League title winners Leicester, according to the Mirror . They are also looking at Wilfried Bony who has become frustrated playing second fiddle to Sergio Aguero at Manchester Utd.

• The Reece Oxford affair has taken a few twists and turns since it emerged earlier this week. It was reported that the young defender was looking to leave the club but it now appears that was the first salvo in negotiations over the future of the 17-year-old. The Sun reports that Oxford is frustrated at the lack of first-team time and wants £40,000 and a £1million signing-on fee with top clubs sniffing around.
