Birmingham City are holding out for around £2 million for defender Ryan Shotton, according to the Birmingham Mail .
Middlesbrough are understood to be leading the chase to acquire the former Derby County man, with a number of Championship sides interested in taking on Shotton.
Shotton took a pay cut to join the Blues, but isn't said to be desperate to leave the club - despite the two parties having yet to open negotiations over a new contract.
Bristol City and Hull City are also thought to be among the clubs to hold an interest in the former Stoke City man.
Sunderland winger Jermaine Lens is set to bring his Black Cats career to a close in the next 48 hours, according to the Shields Gazette .
The Dutch international will undergo a medical with Besiktas after Sunderland agreed a deal with the Turkish side for Lens' departure.
Lens impressed on loan at Besiktas' league rivals Fenerbahce last term, prompting Besiktas to make a move - and a bid was rejected earlier this month.
Sunderland will be hoping to recoup a good chunk of the £12million the Black Cats shelled out on him in the summer of 2015 - when he was brought to Wearside by Dick Advocaat.
Wolverhampton Wanderers' latest signing was once-coveted by the liked of Manchester City and Juventus, according to the Birmingham Mail .
Leo Bonatini joined Wolves on a season-long loan from Al-Hilal of Sauid Arabia earlier this week, and attracted the attention of City and Juve six years ago while a youth prospect at Cruzeiro.
"I’ve received a proposal from Juventus, as well as from Manchester City, which incidentally is the latest among those that have reached me," he said at the time.
"At the moment, the leadership of the Cruzeiro do not seem willing to consider my transfer."
Aston Villa defender Aly Cissokho has completed a £1.3 million move to Turkish Super League newcomers Yeni Malatyaspor.
The fee of around €1.5million is a record outlay for Yeni Malatyaspor, according to reports in Turkey.
Cissokho made 58 appearances for Villa during three seasons at the club, following his £3 million signing from Valencia in 2014 by former Villa boss Paul Lambert.
The former Liverpool man has been deemed surplus to requirements, however, with Neil Taylor making the left-back spot his own under Steve Bruce.
