Arsenal will tie up a deal for Manchester United wonderkid Ravel Morrison – literally.
The troubled 18-year-old midfielder has struggled to get into the reckoning at Old Trafford, but will be offered a way out by Arsene Wenger.
And he will be closely monitored at The Emirates where Arsenal backroom staff will chain the England Youth talent to a radiator in golden handcuffs between games.
Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has rubbished claims he will resurrect a deal to bring Sunderland striker Beach Ball to Anfield.
The player was originally linked a with a move after scoring the winner for Sunderland against the Merseysiders in October 2009.
Ball’s strike rate is on a par with former Newcastle United man Andy Caroll’s return for the Reds. But Dalglish is unwilling to give up hope the Geordie can find his feet, if not the back of the net.
