One of our midfield options is proving difficult as is our preferred striker option (Berahino). So other opportunities are also being explored. The Goat hears that we can expect one of each although just who is up in the air at the moment. Austin? No.

The Goat hears that its possible we'll have two in and maybe even two out by the end of the week. Also United are still very interested in Kane but have been given the short answer, Levy isn't for selling, even at 45m.

The Goat hears that we are now looking at a few names that haven't come up yet but also revisiting previous options now certain clubs are out of the CL. Alas no names arrived with this information.

Word reached The Goat that South Coast Big Club won't be selling to anyone this window. They've been a resisting pressure from agents and players and have effectively hung up the 'closed for business' sign.

The Goat hears that its far more likely any signings will be announced tomorrow rather than today.

Note from A&C: Posted so you can get out, get some fresh air and get your supplies in for tomorrow.

From a new source, so applicable salt etc etc, but The Goat hears that there is interest in Javi Martinez from Bayern. No details on the outcome, such as wether the enquiry was rejected or otherwise, just that the question was asked.

From a more regular source The Goat hears one last push for Berahino. We're hoping we get up to 3 in but other than Berahino no names were mentioned. Also that it now looks like Adebayor, despite big efforts by the club, is happy to sit around doing nothing although something very late on hasn't been completely ruled out.

From The Goat: We've just had it confirmed that we have in place our regular deadline day overdraft of around £40m.

The Goat hears that Benteke has been offered to us, but that's all i'm afraid………no idea as to wether or not we'll pursue that.

The Goat hears that Dembele is likely to be the only incoming during this transfer window and is seen as one for the future. Finally the battle of the eggheads. Our egg doesn't want to deal with WBA's egg so that all looks very unlikely.

Just a few bits that are either new or reinforce previous snippets

The Goat hears that after GKN we are done, unless we can agree a deal for a player from Spain that Poch really likes. Edwards has impressed and has been promised time in cup games if he continues to do so and The Goat hears a new deal has been signed.

CCV has not impressed as much as team would like but that's all that The Goat heard on that and finally Pritchard has completely not burned his bridges yet, but has to improve and impress more in training. At the same time he is available for the right offer.

The Goat has been told that the fallout with MP has come from him giving Poch an ultimatum..."Either start playing me or I will get my agent to look at my options"

The Goat hears that our interest is Isco is very real and that there is interest on his part too. The club should know pretty quickly on this one.

The boy from Forest is also of interest but there are complications regarding a loan back so that's ongoing and we're not the only ones in for him.

Another name that The Goat has been given is Zaha, again, The Goat hears that interest in he player is genuine.

OK a few bits have landed on The Goat's lap, some not surprising but you get what you get..... so here we go.......

Mason has been told he can leave and won't have as much game time as we want to try the youngsters in the cups.

A deal for a keeper is agreed and fitness stuff is expected to be done this evening

As we all know GKN was supposed to have been done ages ago but we still expect this to happen

Isco. We have people out there and have had for the past week. Poch has spoken to player and family, Levy got the go ahead and its down to the clubs to agree terms. There's also an option closer to home (Zaha) which Levy is dealing with himself. We want both on perm deals not loans.
