Blackburn Rovers manager Kenny Dalglish completed one of his more modest deals with the signing of Plymouth utility player Nicky Marker (27) The £500,000 package was made up half in cash and with the sale of Craig Skinner and Keith Hill to Plymouth. Earlier in the window, he had missed out on the deal to bring Craig Short from Derby County which fell through because the player did not want to move away from his family.

There will be a three-way contest between Southampton, Manchester City and Chelsea in the race to sign the talented duo Darek McInnes and David Hopkin in a combined deal of £700000. Although the Saints are in the pole position at the moment and St Mary’s look like the most likely destination for the pair City and Chelsea are monitoring the situation and are ready to move in should a move fail to materialize.
The forgotten man of Liverpool, Hungarian Istvan Kozma would be hoping to be in the starting line up for Liverpool’s clash against Wimbledon after his match-saving performance for the reds against Chesterfield in the CocaCola Cup. He said after the game: “It was very nice to come back. “Everybody wants to play, but you can only pick 11. We have around 18 who can come in, so it’s hard. “If you do well, you have a chance of playing in the next game. I hope to play in everyone, but if I do badly I can understand it if the boss leaves me out.”
Ex Tottenham Hotspur star Paul Gascoine’s return to England was thrown into further controversy as the FA Premier League heads and the Italian FA’s heads were at loggerhead over the match between Spurs and Lazio next week. Gascoine snapped his knee ligaments while playing for Spurs in 1991 and since then has moved to Italy to continue his career. English FA tried to get the match broadcast banned in the UK but it was overturned by the authoties. BSkyB said FA’s action was unlawful inducement to break the contract we had with Tottenham to broadcast the match live.”
