David Moyes alleged interest in signing Adnan Januzaj is wide of the mark, according to Real Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay, who claims the former Manchester United manager is yet to make an official request for any particular player.

The Red Devils starlet has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford in January after suffering a serious dip in form following the appointment of Louis van Gaal, and so a reunion with his former mentor has been touted.

However, a switch to the Spanish strugglers now looks increasingly unlikely after comments made distanced themselves from a bid for the Belgium international.

"There have not been direct requests," Aperribay told El Diario Vasco. "He has not decided whether we will bring someone in, and not in what positions.

"The club has not been approached to sign anyone [by David Moyes]."

Arsenal agree deal for Krystian Bielik

Arsene Wenger looks to have finally solved Arsenal's defensive midfield problem after reportedly agreeing a contract with Krystian Bielik - a Polish wonderkid described in his homeland as the next Patrick Vieira.

The Daily Star reports that the 16-year-old talent is one of the hottest young prospects on the planet, and the Gunners will quadruple the teenagers wages to £2,000-a-week to get the deal done in January.

The Legia Warsaw starlet's parents would prefer their son to make the move at the end of the season, but Wenger hopes that an invitation for the whole family to watch Arsenal's Boxing Day clash with Queens Park Rangers will help sweeten negotiations.

Ashley Cole to Crystal Palace on loan?

And finally, Chelsea legend Ashley Cole is poised to make a surprise return to the Premier League, as Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock lines up a loan move for the AS Roma left-back.

According to the Daily Mail, the defender's £80,000-a-week wages could be a problem, as Cole will be required to take a 50 per cent wage cut to secure a move to Selhurst Park.

The retired England international's position at Stadio Olimpico is currently unclear after losing his place in Rudi Garcia's starting line-up for the last five matches.

Surprisingly, Cole could be open to a romantic return to south east London, though, the club where he joined a successful loan spell back in 2000 before making his senior breakthrough at Arsenal.
