Transfer update

Last updated : 27 June 2006 By Reggie Holdsworth
Gareth Southgate has stated on the clubs official website 'I'm not pursuing an interest in him, he's a good player, but not somebody I'm looking at bringing in.'

Boro have also gone cool on Standard Liege's Oguchi Onyewu who had a poor World Cup with USA. They have now turned their attentions to Sochaux's Souleymane Diawara who comes from Senegal. Bolton have also been tracking the centre half.

Meanwhile Newcastle are closing in on Jimmy Floydd Hasselbaink who is out of contract at the end of this week. Southgate will need to act swiftly if he wants to keep the hitman at the Riverside. Celtic have also shown an interest in him.
