Leeds United are fighting Celtic and Borussia Dortmund for the Premier League starlet

According to Sky Sports, Leeds United and Norwich City are considering taking steps for Fulham star Matt O'Riley.

The midfielder is very popular in Craven Cottage after he has excelled in the youth ranks. However, he is not yet represented in the League of London and as such attracts the attention from elsewhere.

It is believed that Leeds and Norwich want to take the 18-year-old with them, but it looks like they are facing foreign competition.

The German clubs RB Leipzig, Stuttgart and Borussia Dortmund, along with Celtic and Rangers O & R; have kept an eye on Riley.

It is thought that the reader is interested in leaving Nelson Oliveira, the Norwich City striker, out of sight this month.

Although Club Benfica paid £ 5m for its services in 2016, Oliveira has not played a single minute this season for the Canary Islands after losing the pecking order under Daniel Farke.

However, according to the Spiegel, Reading seems willing to offer Oliveira a way out of Carrow Road, and Reading's boss, Jose Gomes, has already opened talks about a deal.

Frank Lampard gives Cole interest

Frank Lampard has announced that Derby County is interested in his former Chelsea team-mate Ashley Cole.

Cole has been without a club since the release of LA Galaxy at the end of the MLS season, but it looks like Derby could offer the left a way back into the game.

"He's a great pro and a great boy, so let's look at that," Lampard said.

"I talk to Ash all the time, we're good friends.

"I know that he is very fit and fresh and wants to keep playing, so he comes into my mind because I know what influence he would have."

Clubs that are interested in Ming

West Brom and Aston Villa will be loaned out for the remainder of the season, Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings said.

Mings struggled to fight for chances this season at Vitality Stadium, and Darren Moore and Dean Smith have identified the defender as a player who can strengthen his hand in the back.

Although Mings may be available this month, much of Bournemouth's persecution depends on Brentford's center-back Chris Mepham.
