Transfer News: Boro Target Hands In Transfer Request, Three Team Battle For £12m Rated Bristol City Defender And Celtic Pursue Stacey

Jamal Lowe

Portsmouth winger Jamal Lowe has asked to leave the League One club, according to reports in the UK.

Middlesbrough, Leeds and West Brom are all said to be keen on the 24-year-old, who scored 17 goals last season for Pompey.

Everton have reportedly joined Aston Villa and Newcastle in the race for Bristol City defender Adam Webster.

The centre-back signed from Ipswich Town last summer and the Robins are believed to be demanding at least £10m for the player because of a sell-on clause with the Tractor Boys.

Villa are said to have already offered £12m for the 24-year-old and Everton will likely have to match that bid.

Celtic and Stoke City are targeting Luton right-back Jack Stacey, according to reports.

Former Hatters boss Nathan Jones is keen to reunite with the defender at the Bet365 Stadium, while Celtic have lost first-choice right-back Mikael Lustig to Gent. Both teams are reportedly lining up £2m bids for Stacey.
