Shakhtar are understood to be prepared to sell Tete, but Lyon have an option to make the player’s loan permanent for a fixed price of £17.5m.Leicester would then be at the head of the Premier League queue having had a long-standing interest.

It now looks unlikely they will land his signature at all, regardless of a second bid, if Caicedo’s recent comments on how happy he is at the Amex are anything to go by.”I am focused on Brighton, I am here, I’m playing every day. Things from outside don’t trouble me, nor does it take that focus away because I’m focused only on here,” the 21-year-old told Brighton website. “I handle [the speculation] well. You hear rumours here and there, but I only try to be focused on the club where I am now, the club which opened the doors for me to be playing every week.”12:20Josh O’BrienNat Phillips exit toutedLiverpool defender Nat Phillips could be heading towards the Anfield exit on a permanent basis.This relates to the fact that fellow Reds defender Rhys Williams has been recalled from his loan spell with Championship outfit Blackpool.Phillips was initially expected to remain at the club to serve as central-defensive cover following the injury to Virgil van Dijk leaving Liverpool light in that area.However, with Williams being recalled, presumably to take up the role of cover, Phillips could now be on his way and get some regular game-time elsewhere under his belt.11:38Felix KeithChelsea’s Ziyech dilemmaGraham Potter has a decision to make after Chelsea received many enquiries over Hakim Ziyech. The Evening Standard says that Jose Mourinho wants Ziyech as a replacement for Nicolo Zaniolo, who is a target of Tottenham, while Newcastle and Everton are also keen on the Morocco international. The Blues need to trim their squad if they are to comply with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules, but Ziyech has been in decent form recently, setting up the only goal in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace and impressing in the goalless draw at Anfield. The report also states that Chelsea won’t consider sending out Conor Gallagher and Trevoh Chalobah on loan, but Gabriel Slonina, Bashir Humphreys, Omari Hutchinson and Cesare Casadei could leave temporarily.
