  • Ryan Harley (Exeter - MK Dons) - Free
  • David Milinkovic (Genoa - Hull) - Undisclosed

Transfer round-up

Sky Sports reports that Borussia Dortmund forward Andriy Yarmolenko has arrived at West Ham United’s training camp in Switzerland.

He has started the first part of his medical ahead of his £17.5m move.

Leaving England could be Yannick Bolasie, with Sky Sports also reporting that Fenerbahce are interested in signing the Everton winger

The Turkish side finished second in the Super Lig last season, and are looking to strengthen their squad before they enter the Champions League qualifying rounds.

Bolasie has been at Everton for two years after joining the club from Crystal Palace for close to £30m.

Reports also say that RB Leipzig are continuing their pursuit of young Everton forward Ademola Lookman.

The 20-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at the Bundesliga club and they are keen to take him back on a permanent deal.

Everton have reportedly turned down a £12m bid, but Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick, who on Monday was also also appointed first-team manager, has no intention of giving up.

Peterborough United's Marcus Maddison has been transfer-listed by the club
Peterborough United's Marcus Maddison could head to Leeds

Leeds United's pursuit of Derby County forward Matej Vydra could be over after fresh wage demands were deemed too high, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Leeds have been linked with a move for last season's Championship top scorer and were in negotiations with his club about a fee, with the player impressed with the West Yorkshire club.

The Whites could instead now turn their attentions to Marcus Maddison - who was a player of interest in January.

The Peterborough man scored 12 goals and assisted a further 23 last season as Posh missed out on the play-offs in Sky Bet League One.

Peterborough United owner Darragh MacAnthony recently confirmed that Maddison's release clause had been activated by an unnamed club.

Real Sociedad have made an ambitious move to tempt Nacho Monreal away from Arsenal, says the Mirror.

The 32-year-old has a contract at the Emirates until the summer of 2019.

Staying with The Mirror, and they say that Birmingham have been placed under a transfer embargo – which leaves new signing Kristian Pedersen in doubt.

The Blues have been punished after breaking EFL Financial Fair Play rules following a spending spree last summer on 13 new players, signed by then-manager Harry Redknapp.

It means new addition Pedersen, who was signed on a Bosman and has already been unveiled by the club, cannot play next season.

Liverpool forward Harry Wilson's dream of playing first-team football for the club means he will resist going out on loan for now.

The 21-year-old has consistently been the Under-23's best player over the last two seasons and he enhanced his reputation further with an impressive five months at Sky Bet Championship Hull, scoring seven times in 13 matches.

Around a dozen clubs, including Celtic, have made enquiries about the Wales international, whom Press Association Sport understands is set to sign a new contract at Anfield, but Wilson wants to prove his worth to Jurgen Klopp in pre-season.
