  1. Goodbye

    That's it from me this morning. Before you go here are some of the stories to emerge over the past few hours.

    We will fire up the live page again tomorrow morning for all the reaction to Manchester City v Manchester United and West Ham v Liverpool, plus all the latest transfer news as we nudge closer to Friday's deadline.

    Bye for now!

  2. Man Utd close in on Southend goalkeeper

    Radio 5 live senior football reporter

    Manchester United are close to signing Southend United goalkeeper Nathan Bishop.

    The 20 year old England U20 International has made 17 appearances for the League One club this season.

  3. Leeds go top after dramatic comeback

    There was plenty of drama in the Championship last night, especially at Elland Road as Leeds fought back from 2-0 down against Millwall to win 3-2 and go top of the table.

    West Brom dropped to second after slipping to defeat at Cardiff, while Nottingham Forest moved up to third after winning 1-0 at fellow promotion chasers Brentford.

    Elsewhere, Wayne Rooney scored his first goal for Derby but it was not enough to secure victory against Luton, while Bristol City climbed into the play-off places with a win at Reading.

  4. Get Involved

    Marc, London: Not sure Liverpool 'need' anyone, but it would be great to get Adama Traore in, could help with the final push and nicely settled for next season.

    Dean McNamara: If Man Utd can get the Fernandes deal over the line, why not then go for Giroud as a short term plug up front. I could see him fitting in well.

  5. 'We have to be ready for a big fight'

    West Ham v Liverpool (19:45 GMT)


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on tonight's trip to the London Stadium: "West Ham fights for staying in the league and that's what it looks like. It will be a big fight, they will fight with all they have.

    "It will be a rather defensive line-up [from West Ham]. If it's four in the back or five in the back, I don't know, but we have to be ready for a big fight. They want to strike back, they have a tough programme coming up, everybody knows that. They have no points to waste, no time to waste.

    "We have to keep up, if not set the intensity level and do some smart things with possession as well. That's a big challenge."

  6. BreakingTottenham sign Bergwijn

    Sticking with Spurs, here is some breaking news:

    Tottenham have signed Netherlands forward Steven Bergwijn from Eredivisie outfit PSV Eindhoven on a five-and-a-half year deal.

    The 22-year-old will wear the number 23 shirt vacated by Christian Eriksen.

  7. Get Involved

    Matt: Dream signing before the deadline... @eoindoyle88 finally signing permanently for @Official_STFC especially after last night's game.

    Travelling Monkey: I think MU need: Jones out, Smalling back, a LB to aid Williams, he's good, but Ole can't do a Spurs with him (put the pressure on).

  8. Crouchy till the end of the season?

    A brand new episode of That Peter Crouch Podcast has dropped with the team discussing the role and tricks of football agents while also answering some other unexpected questions.

  9. Everton unlikely to make late moves

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer

    All quiet at Everton as the clock ticks down to the close of the transfer window. It looks increasingly like new manager Carlo Ancelotti will keep his powder dry until the summer unless a very late deal emerges.

    Director Of Football Marcel Brands stated that Everton hoped to move on defender Cuco Martina and striker Oumar Niasse during this window but it looks an increasingly forlorn hope unless a club decides to act in desperation.

    Martina is totally out of the picture while Niasse, signed by Roberto Martinez in 2016, has made a couple of brief and unimpressive appearances as a substitute recently.

    Everton would love to get them off the wage bill but this looks unlikely.

  10. The lenders helping mega-moves happen

    What links a company based in Fitzrovia to teenage superstar Joao Felix and France forward Antoine Griezmann?

  11. 'I love watching Pep'

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    I asked Aston Villa manager Dean Smith last night whether he would be watching the second leg of the other semi-final between Manchester City and Manchester United tonight to get some pointers ahead of the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on 1 March.

    Given his side lost 6-1 at home to City less than three weeks ago, Smith could be forgiven for avoiding looking at Pep Guardiola's side too closely, so his answer took me aback.

    "I will probably watch it because I just love watching Pep Guardiola’s teams if I am honest," he said.

  12. Quiz time!

    Speaking of West Ham v Liverpool, today's fiendishly difficult quiz is testing your memory of their famous FA Cup final clash in 2006.

    Can you name the teams that day in Cardiff? Trust me, it's harder than you think.

  13. Liverpool look to go 19 clear

    West Ham v Liverpool (19:45 GMT)

    Liverpool can go NINETEEN points clear at the top of the Premier League tonight when they take on West Ham in their rearranged fixture.

    Jurgen Klopp will recall the bulk of his senior squad after making 11 changes for the draw with Shrewsbury in the FA Cup, though forward Sadio Mane is sidelined with a small muscle tear.

    West Ham meanwhile are only outside the relegation zone on goal difference and were beaten at home by Championship West Brom in the FA Cup at the weekend.

    The Hammers will monitor goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, who is nearing a return from a thigh problem. Midfielder Robert Snodgrass will also be assessed as he battles to overcome a knee injury.

    Ryan Fredericks, Felipe Anderson, Andriy Yarmolenko, Arthur Masuaku and Jack Wilshere are still sidelined

  14. Get Involved

    So with just two days to go until the transfer deadline, clubs are running out of time if they want to get those deals over the line in time.

    But what are your hopes for the final few days of the window?

    Who do you want your club to bring in? Who would be your dream signing? Or would you just be happy to keep what you have?

    Let us know using the Twitter hashtag #bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only) and we will post the best responses throughout the morning.

  15. Arsenal close in on Mari

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Arsenal are on the verge of agreeing a six-month loan deal for Flamengo defender Pablo Mari.

    It is understood the Gunners have agreed a loan fee for the player, with the deal due to become permanent in the summer.

    Flamengo had targeted Leo Pereira as Mari’s replacement and confirmed the Athletico Paranaense defender’s arrival last night.

    Mari has already flown to England once, believing a deal was close, only for Flamengo to pull the plug on the transfer.

    However, it is not thought it will be stopped again, with the deal due to be completed before Friday’s deadline.

  16. Baggies sign Robinson

    Championship promotion hopefuls West Brom have signed striker Callum Robinson on loan from Sheffield United until the end of the season.
