However, the report goes on to “state” that discussion will continue between the both clubs and an agreement over a possible loan deal for the Lazio man is “hopeful” of being settled. Ravel Morrison has already played for Birmingham City Football Club in a loan stint in 2013, and he may return to the Midlands club this summer for one more spell. Ravel Morrison joined SSS Lazio in 2015 but rarely featured for the club before returning to England with QPR on loan spell in January 2017, where he made just 5 Championship appearances for the club.

Meyer refused to rule out potential summer transfer

According to Mirror, Max Meyer has ruled out Schalke's effort to extend his current deal with the club, and he's now into the last year of his contract with the German club. Meyer, 19, fully understands that shutting the door to a possible move while the summer window is open is not something he can do once the opportunity comes. Max Meyer told reporters: “It is not the case that I want to leave come what may.

As things stand I will stay, but you can never say for sure when you've just one year left on your deal and the transfer window is still open for the next coming weeks.” Max Meyer has been linked with a move to the Premier League following his fine performances last term. The German youngster has earned a total of 164 appearances for Schalke 04, bagging twenty-one goals and setting up twenty-three assists.

Sheffield Wednesday wants Johan Djourou

English Championship club Sheffield Wednesday want to sign Johan Djourou, and they're working really hard to push through a deal for the Swiss international, according to Inside Futbol. Johan Djourou is a free agent following his release from Bundesliga club Hamburg SV this summer and it has been speculated the center back is in close talks with Sheffield officials, though the Owls boss Carlos Carvalhal has strenuously refused to confirm or rule out these claims.
