Transfer News — 30 August 2012

Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov is set to hold talks with fellow Premier League club Fulham over a move.

A fee has been agreed between the two clubs and the Bulgarian is expected in London to discuss personal terms.

Serie A clubs Juventus and Fiorentina also had bids accepted for the Bulgarian striker, but the 31 year-old wants to stay in England, citing family reasons.

According to Sky Sports reports Stoke City have made a £4million bid for Liverpool’s out-of-favour midfielder Charlie Adam. The Scottish international joined Liverpool last summer for a reported fee of £7million from Blackpool, but the Reds have strengthened their central midfield this summer with the signings of Nuri Sahin and Joe Allen.

Fulham and Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton are also believed to be interested in the former-Blackpool ace. Adam has stated he is happy at Liverpool, but it now looks like he is surplus to requirements.

QPR are set to bid au adieu to controversial midfielder Joey Barton. Their former-captain is in France undergoing a medical ahead of a move to Ligue One club Marseille. Barton is currently serving a 12 match ban for violent conduct from last season. The Hoops will allow him to leave on a free transfer.

Aston Villa have signed young defender Jonathan Bennett from Championship club Middlesbrough for £4million. Bennett is a England under-21 international and has made over 90 appearances for Boro since being promoted from the clubs academy in 2009.

Swansea City have agreed a fee in the region of £5.5million for Valencia winger Pablo Hernandez. The 27 year-old is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Welsh club. Hernandez is highly-rated and was previously linked with Manchester City and Liverpool.
