Who's in the market for an England left-back? Plenty of clubs, you'd imagine, and according to the Mail, Neil Warnock is in the process of trying to take Wayne Bridge back to London.

Simon Jones writes in his Screamer column: "Queens Park Rangers have made the opening move to sign Bridge on loan but are facing competition from Wolves for the Manchester City misfit.

"Sportsmail revealed QPR's interest in Bridge on Saturday, after it emerged that the former England left-back is free to leave the Etihad Stadium.

"They have been given permission to discuss a short-term deal, and co-owner Tony Fernandes has called Bridge's representative in a bid to get the deal finalised.


But Wolves have now entered the race after registering their interest with Bridge's adviser Aaron Lincoln

"Wages of £95,000 a week could still be the stumbling block for both clubs." Quite.

The Independent's Ian Herbert is more concerned with Carlos Tevez, having discovered that Inter Milan have joined their cross-city rivals in considering a move for the striker.

He does concede: "Inter are well behind their Milanese neighbours and have made few positive noises about Tevez so far, though the club's head of technical staff, Marco Branca, has arranged a meeting with City.

"There has been no contact between Inter and Kia Joorabchian, whose work to seek a move for Tevez to AC Milan saw him meet that club's vice-president Adriano Galliani yesterday."

The MEN's City man Stuart Brennan reckons that "Wesley Sneijder is again set to be dangled by Inter as bait" and also puts Juventus, Paris St Germain and Corinthians in the mix.

Exciting, isn't it?
