Here are some of the stories involving potential comings and goings from NUFC today:
IN: NUFC have had a cash bid for Marseilles Ben Arfa rejected. Hoffenheim have also declared an interest (Various)
Ben Arfa is a very good player, but a number of sources suggest that he is not the easiest player to coach. For that reason I hope this deal does not progress. We have gone down that road too many times before.
IN: NUFC are competing with that lot down the road (you know â€“ the ones who Sol and Gosling turned down) for the loan of Boyata from Manchester City. (Sunderland Echo)
I would be very surprised if this one was true â€“ We have just signed Sol to go along with Taylor, Colo, Williamson and Kadar whilst the other team linked have loads of players in this position.
OUT: Chelsea are keen on Newcastle striker Andy Carroll and Newcastle are preparing to reject a Â£7m bid. (Sunderland Echo)
Andy Carroll to Chelsea? I doubt it. Not yet anyway.
OUT: Lualua to Brighton on loan (Team Talk)
Probably the right level for Kazenga.
