After being linked with a number of Championship clubs, Britt Assombalonga has made the somewhat suprising move abroad and to newly-promoted Turkish side Adana Demirspor.

Assombalonga was Middlesbrough’s club-record signing of £15 million in the summer of 2017 but was released towards the end of last season.

Mario Vrancic looks set to be staying in the Championship after his release from Norwich City with Stoke City understood to be leading the list of clubs wanting to sign the 32-year-old midfielder on a free transfer, says the Sunday Telegraph.

Accrington striker Dion Charles has another admirer with the highly-rated Northern Ireland international being tracked by Stoke City.

The Sun on Sunday reports that Accrington want £2m for the forward who scored 20 goals last season.

Elsewhere, reports claim Wales international Harry Wilson’s latest loan move could be back in Wales with Swansea this time.

The Liverpool midfielder, who has already had spells on loan at Crewe, Hull City, Derby County, Bournemouth and Cardiff City is also reportedly wanted by Fulham and Brentford.
