Andre Vilas-Boas it seems can't have made a huge impression on Alvaro Pereira, with the Uruguayan - according to The Metro - not interested in a reunion with his ex boss.

Everton and Manchester City are set to battle it out for the signing of highly rated Leeds youngster Sam Byram. The Sun suggests that David Moyes is ready to go head to head with Roberto Mancini, having earmarked the 19-year-old as a priority in this upcoming transfer window.
