Oba Martins:

Linked to Wolfsburg, Everton, Stoke, Pompey, Wigan and Villa. Fees mentioned seem to be anywhere from £4m to £7m.

Rumour Rating: 4/5 – Likely to go but at the top end of that bidding range.

Habib Beye:

Linked to Stoke, Blackburn, the mackems and Everton. Fee mentioned is a shocking £1m.

Rumour Rating: 3/5 – Stoke seems to make more sense with the large Senegalese contingent already there.

Steven Taylor:

Linked to Fenerbache, West Ham and Arsenal. Fee mentioned is a solid £4m.

Rumour Rating: 2/5 – Taylor seems set on staying should Shearer take over. Anything won’t be concluded until that one is either dead or in place.

Jonas Gutierrez:

Linked with Fulham, Athletico Madrid and Porto. Fees range from a season long loan to £4m.

Rumour Rating: 4/5 – Provided the deal is cash, not loan, this one looks to be a goer.
