Lunchtime Round-up 9th January

Afternoon all,

Bradford manager Phil Parkinson has said that their 3-1 win over Aston Villa in the 1st leg of their Capital One Cup semi final  last night was better than their win over Arsenal in the quarter final. The League Two side have been the surprise package of the league cup this year knocking out teams such as Arsenal and Wigan on their way to the semi final

Manchester City’s assistant coach Angelo Gregucci has said that the club is very interested in signing Uruguay and Napoli striker Edison Cavani. Cavani is said to be the target of many european clubs such as Chelsea. But I doubt the interest in Cavani will deteriorate any time soon, as the striker is on top form for Napoli playing 23 games and scoring 25 goals

Everton midfielder Leon Osman believes that the current Everton team is the best that they have had in the 10 years that he has been with the club. Osman also added that David Moyes has played a big part on his career, and if he ever left then he would be disappointed

Roma striker Destro has also been mentioned by the owner as a possible target

West Brom’s Hungarian midfielder Zoltan Gera is set to miss the rest of the season following a knee injury he picked up against QPR this weekend. Gera had played a pivital role in West Brom’s fantastic start to the season, scoring four goals. But the good news for Gera is that if nothing else goes wrong whilst he is injured, he could possibly return for the start of the new Premier League season

Oldham winger Christian Montano has been ruled out for up to two months after he tore his thigh muscle during the clubs draw with Scunthorpe on new year’s day

Bolton have completed the signing of Barnsley striker Craig Davies on a two-and-a-half year deal  for a fee which is believed to be around £300,000. The Welsh striker has scored nine goals in 23 games so far this season, including four in one game against Birmingham

Bournemouth have completed the signing of Harry Cornick from non-league side Christchurch, but the 17-year old will remain at the club until the end of the season
