Championship Rumours: Swansea Star Could Snub United, Spurs Target Bristol City Starlet And Forest Plot Move For Keeper

Dan James

Swansea manager Graham Potter has asked Daniel James to move with him to Brighton, according to reports in England.

The Welshman has been heavily linked with a switch to Manchester United but Potter thinks it would be more beneficial for him to develop his game at the Seagulls. The Swans boss is said to be close to replacing Chris Hughton at the Amex.

Tottenham are reportedly keen on signing Bristol City defender Lloyd Kelly as a long-term replacement for Jan Vertonghen.

The 20-year-old, who has also come to the attention of Southampton and Liverpool, is a left-sided centre-half who can also play at fullback.

Reports in Greece have credited Nottingham Forest with an interest in Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

The Bosnian international has fallen down the pecking order under manager Eddie Howe at the Vitality Stadium and could be offloaded by the Premier League club this summer.

Olympiakos, Stoke and Fenerbahce are also said to be pursuing the 31-year-old.
