Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes has been left in no doubt that his future lies away from Old Trafford.

Although Real Madrid are expected to make another concerted effort to sign David de Gea this week, Valdes remains set on leaving too.

His place at the club was underlined on Sunday when he returned to Carrington to find that his kit had been moved to the Under 21s’ dressing-room area and he was told he was no longer with the first-team squad.

Valdes trained alone on Monday and even ate lunch by himself, remaining courteous to staff. It’s understood that he wants to stay in the Premier League.

The move is understood to have upset his Spanish-speaking team-mates, who believe the action is disrespectful to the vastly experienced 33-year-old who won three Champions League titles with Barcelona.

Valdes is popular among his team-mates but United manager Louis van Gaal left the keeper off their tour to USA after criticising his attitude and saying he had refused to play for the Under 21s.

Valdes countered by posting a pictures of himself with the Under 21s on Twitter, adding the hashtag ‘#respect’ 

Speaking about Valdes last month, Van Gaal said: ‘Valdes is not selected [for the tour] because he doesn’t follow my philosophy. The philosophy is how you play football and how you maintain your match rhythm,’ said Van Gaal.

‘He refused last year to play in the second team. There are a lot of other aspects in the philosophy how you have to play like a goalkeeper at Manchester United. When you are not willing [to apply] the principles of that philosophy there is only one way, and that is out.

‘For us this is a big disappointment. We thought he would follow our philosophy. It’s a pity because we have given the opportunity to rehabilitate. Then we gave a contract. Then of course he is fit to play. When you’re not playing in the first selection, you have to play in the second selection.’

Van Gaal signed goalkeeper Sergio Romero on a free transfer last month as he plans for the departure of Valdes before the transfer window closes.

Valencia did have an interest in the Spain international but said he was too expensive, while Antalyaspor and MLS side Seattle Sounders have also shown interest.

Lyon are hopeful of reaching agreement with Manchester United over right back Rafael. United want £7m for the 25-year-old.

Sunderland hope to complete the signing of Yann M’Vila after a medical but face competition from West Ham for Leroy Fer. The 25-year-old M’Vila will join from Rubin Kazan. He has had trouble with Dynamo Moscow but claims to have never actually signed a contract for them despite a loan deal being in place.

Sunderland are also trying to sign Dutch midfielder Fer from QPR on a season-long loan but face late competition from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven while West Ham have also asked to take him on loan.

QPR boss Chris Ramsey confirmed interest in Fer and striker Charlie Austin, saying: ‘People are very interested. We know it’s a financial situation where the players, given the right offer, will probably go.’

QPR midfielder Sandro, meanwhile, is expected to train with Internacional in Brazil on Monday as he awaits clearance on his work permit application.

West Ham also have an interest in Paris Saint-Germain forward Jean-Christophe Bahebeck. The 22-year-old is available on loan and Slaven Bilic is exploring several possibilities including Charlie Austin and Raul Jimenez at Atletico Madrid following the injury to Enner Valencia. Mexico international Jimenez though may struggle to get a work permit.

Leicester are holding further talks with Napoli over their proposed deal for Gokhan Inler.

The clubs agreed a fee over the weekend but the player was reluctant to make the move. Claudio Ranieri has spoken to the Switzerland international’s agent and hopes to convince him to change his mind.

Leicester are struggling to get some of their targets in despite fees being agreed with clubs. Internacional’s Charles Aranguiz is holding out for a bid from Bayer Leverkusen rather than jump at a move to the King Power Stadium.

Atalanta defender Yohan Benalouane has agreed to join however, as has N’Golo Kante from Caen.

Meanwhile, Leicester left back Paul Konchesky is discussing a possible move to Championship side Bristol City.

Cardiff City striker Adam Le Fondre is undergoing a medical at Wolves ahead of a proposed season-long loan.

Le Fondre was wanted by Blackburn but Wolves will sign him on loan with view to a permanent deal and will pay most of Le Fondre’s wages of around £16,000 a week.

Wolves are also looking to sign Liverpool’s Sheyi Ojo on loan. The 18-year-old scored in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Swindon on Sunday.

Arsenal forward Chuba Akpom is having a medical at Hull ahead of signing on loan. Steve Bruce is also hoping to finalise the £3.5m signing of Moses Odubajo. The Brentford full back travelled to Hull for his medical with Bruce looking to add two more signings before Saturday’s opener with Huddersfield Town.

Bruce has made offers for Brentford striker Andre Gray but the Griffin Park club want £8m for the player they snapped up from Luton a year ago for £500,000.

The Hull boss also has an interest in Chicago Fire forward Shaun Maloney and Manchester United pair James Wilson and Paddy McNair.

Leeds United expect to complete the signing of Brentford’s Stuart Dallas. 

QPR have been told by Southend that goalkeeper Daniel Bentley is not for sale but they still intend to make an offer of around £1.5m.

Hull have had a £1m offer rejected already for the 22-year-old who has one year left on contract. Swansea and Nottingham Forest have also expressed interest in Bentley but QPR are understood to be frontrunners – but only if they can reach a fee with Southend.

Manchester City are not pursuing a deal for West Brom’s Saido Berahino despite the departure of Stevan Jovetic and the likelihood that Edin Dzeko will also go.

Berahino is valued at £20m by West Brom who expect him to stay for at least one more season and City are planning to start with Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Wilfried Bony and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Roma have offered £16.2m in total for Dzeko but that deal is still to be signed off. Dzeko, 29, scored 72 goals in 189 games for City but was poor last season.
