Good morning to footy fans

Non-league sensation Kabongo Tshimanga is attracting interest from the Premier League.

The Chesterfield striker, 24, has been in red-hot form in the National League this season with 21 goals in 22 appearances.

And SunSport understands that one Prem side has been scouting him with a view to potentially snapping him up.

Meanwhile, Jermain Defoe is reportedly in talks over a free transfer to Oxford United.

The veteran striker, 39, is a free agent following his Rangers exit.

And the Telegraph claims Oxford are one of four League One outfits desperate to sign Defoe for the rest of the season.

Newcastle are also staying busy in the transfer market and are reportedly locked in talks to sign Bayer Leverkusen star Mitchel Bakker.

The Mail claims Eddie Howe is closing in on a deal for the Dutch left-back, 21, just six months after he moved to Germany.

And Newcastle are prepared to pay dearly for the highly-rated Holland U21 star.

Finally, Mason Holgate is ready to stay at Everton and fight for his first-team place.

The Toffees defender was wanted by French pair Monaco and Nice this month after falling out of favour under Rafa Benitez.

But he is determined to force his way into caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson’s plans.
