* David Jones is off to Holland on loan leaving Preston (where he has been on loan too). Preston manager Billy Davies:

"David Jones will leave Preston North End after this game.

"He informed me on Friday that he will be joining NEC Nijmegen in Holland on loan for the remainder of the season."

* United are after Franck Ribery and Patrice Evra according to the Screws:

"My agent has spoken to some of United's directors and Spurs have also contacted Marseille," Ribery told the News of the World.

"It means a lot to me to be followed by clubs like that and I think English football will suit me."

Meanwhile, Evra's agent, Frederico Pastorello, claims the 24-year-old left-back can choose between United and Inter Milan.

"United and Inter are extremely interested in landing Patrice in the transfer window," said Pastorello.

"Both have the same chance of getting him and the player has a decision to make."

* More on Evra in the Sunday Mirror:

Evra's agent, Frederico Pastorello, told Sunday Mirror Sport: "Patrice would love to sign for Manchester United - and he would prefer a deal to be done sooner rather than later.

"We are aware Sir Alex Ferguson has been watching his progress for a long time and he would like to take him to Manchester.

"There is hope it can be arranged in January."

* The People claim that Arsenal want Vieira back. They go on to say that he has not settled in Italy.
