Transfer news and rumours today

MILLWALL SIGN WALLACE


Millwall have signed winger Jed Wallace from Wolves for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year contract and moves to The Den on a permanent deal, following loans spells with the London club during the past two seasons.

Wallace has made a total of 35 appearances for the Lions, scoring four goals, and was part of the squad which won promotion to the Championship via the League One play-offs last month.

"Jed is a great young man. He's had two loan spells at The Den and thoroughly enjoyed his time here - he was adamant he wanted to come back, too. His desire to come and play for Millwall has been really strong," Millwall boss Neil Harris said.

"I think everyone has seen the attributes he brings and will bring to Championship football. He's a natural wide player, has pace, energy and work ethic and also end product. That's going to be really key towards us having a successful year in The Championship."

BURTON LAND WARNOCK


Burton have signed experienced defender Stephen Warnock on a one-year deal.

The 35-year-old, a former England international who has also played for Liverpool, Blackburn, Aston Villa, Leeds and Derby, arrives at the Pirelli Stadium following his departure from Wigan, who were relegated from the Championship last season.

"Stephen is a good, experienced full-back," Burton boss Nigel Clough told the club's official website.
"We always liked him when he played for Derby and obviously at Wigan most recently. He will give us that experience that you need in the Championship.

"He will bring all the qualities and all the experience - it's ideal and we think he will complement the defenders that we've already got."


FORMER ENGLAND BOSS REASSURES ROONEY OVER CHINA


Sven-Goran Eriksson has reassured Wayne Rooney he would have a "positive experience" if he moved to the Chinese Super League.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the former England boss said: “I hear a lot that China is not a good place to live for foreign people but that could not be further from the truth.

“I haven’t spoken to Rooney for a long time, so I don’t know what he is thinking, but if he went to China I think he would have a positive experience.”

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho gives team news update for Saturday

There is some concern with a lack of preparation time for the weekend and Andreas Pereira is no longer available after his loan move to Valencia. Luke Shaw and Ashley Young have had run-outs for the Under-23s, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo remain on the sidelines.
"We have to wait and see," the manager told MUTV, when asked for an update on the team news situation. "There is still one more training session. Not every player has reported yet, so today is the first time we are all together.
"I hope that these 15 days without us being together and working together, doesn't affect us too much," Mourinho added at his press conference. "I know it will affect [us]. I know that one thing is a week working with the players and working tactically and going through every principle of play to be ready for the weekend match; another thing is to have the players away and arriving step by step. 
"I don't even see them all. Today is th…

Ivan Perisic transfer update from Inter Milan

A late Manchester United swoop for Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic is fading fast.
The Croatian's boss Luciano Spalletti said the 28-year-old has not shown any new signs that he wants to leave Inter, despite United manager Jose Mourinho being linked with him all summer.
“Since the start, the club spoke with Ivan, as did I, he came and told us some things, because you need specific characteristics to stay here. We must all be ready to listen to how everyone else sees things,” said Spalletti.
“Perisic is a great player, in the vein of Giacinto Facchetti, Javier Zanetti and Marco Materazzi, a leader who gives something more than an individual usually does.
“After this initial discussion, I never had any more signals of a departure, in training or outside of it.
“Ivan is someone who has his own training schedule after the session is finished, working in the gym, and is one of the most professional players I've met.
“He does something that only those who have a real se…

Shaw: I am ready to make a first-team return

The 22-year-old left-back had not played in any sort of match since damaging ligaments against Swansea City at Old Trafford in April, but he gladly made his return to action at Leigh Sports Village as Ricky Sbragia’s youngsters secured a 1-1 draw, coincidentally against the Swans' youth side.
Shaw played for 59 minutes on Monday and so too did Ashley Young, who had also been sidelined through injury since picking up a serious hamstring problem in last season’s UEFA Europa League semi-final first leg tie at Celta Vigo in Spain, rendering Monday an important night for the duo.
“I’m feeling really good and I only push on from here,” a smiling Shaw told MUTV after the final whistle. “I’m looking for the first-team spot now, I’m going to keep pushing, and when the manager needs me I’m going to be ready. Whenever that is, I’m really looking forward to it. I’d rather it was sooner rather than later, but I’m feeling good and whenever I’m called upon, I’m ready.
“I was very ha…
