Tuesday's transfer rumours

Derek Adams has snapped up the 22-year-old on loan from Championship side Luton Town until the end of the season.

West Bromwich Albion boss Valerien Ismael says that the club had worked for months in order to complete the signing of Daryl Dike, says the Express & Star.

The American striker signed for the Baggies on Saturday in what was a permanent deal from Orlando City, thus seeing him link up with Ismael for the first time since the duo left their old club Barnsley.

West Ham United are weighing up the prospect of signing Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Diaz, claims the Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old has become a highly-coveted striker this month on the back of a stunning campaign for Championship outfit Rovers.

Football League World reports that Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom has admitted some of his strikers could leave this month because the club has a lot of players in attacking positions.

His comments follow on from the news that Blackburn Rovers are interested in signing Oliver Burke either on loan or on a permanent deal.
