Transfers: Davies happy with switch, Blades duo

Simon Davies claimed he was pleased to be back in the capital after completing his move to Fulham from Everton.

The former Tottenham midfielder has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with Chris Coleman's Cottagers after 18 months at Goodison Park.

'I'm really happy to have joined Fulham as Chris is a manager I know and admire very much, and I think the style of play that he has developed here will suit my game,' Wales international Davies told the club's website.

'I've wanted to come back to London for a while now so it's a good move for me, and I'm eager to train hard and contribute as much as I can to the rest of the season's campaign.'

Davies, who began his career at Peterborough, joined the Toffees from Spurs for £3.5million in the summer of 2005 and made 53 appearances for the Merseyside club, scoring a solitary goal.

Fulham are also hoping to add goalkeeper Carlo Nash to their ranks after making an offer that appeals to the player.

North End manager Paul Simpson has denied that a £500,000 bid has been lodged for his ever-present keeper but confirmed Fulham were interested.

Nash, 33, seems keen on the move and told BBC Radio Lancashire: 'It is up to the club now, Fulham have made the offer.

'I am just hoping they can open talks and negotiate and everything is sorted out sooner rather than later. This is not doing me or my family any good.'

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has acted on his own comments that the club need to bolster their youth programme by bringing in 18-year-old striker Jordy Brouwer from Ajax.

The player had a youth contract at the Amsterdam club but has decided to take up an offer to continue his development at Anfield.

Chief executive Rick Parry told the club's official website: 'We've made a good signing for the future in Jordy.

'We've monitored his progress and look forward to developing his potential.'

Brouwer is Liverpool's third signing of the current transfer window, with Sampdoria's Italy Under-21 goalkeeper Daniele Padelli and Boca Juniors' Emiliano Insua both having joined on loan.

Sheffield United have continued to add to their squad in the hope of achieving Barclays Premiership survival with a fifth signing in 11 days.

Egypt international Ahmed Fathi is the club's latest addition, joining in a £700,000 deal from Ismaily.

The Blades have also received international clearance for 21-year-old Jamaica striker Luton Shelton, signed earlier this month from Helsingborg for £1.85million.

Former Everton and Rangers defender Michael Ball is having a week-long trial at Manchester City in the hope of securing a move to Eastlands.

The 27-year-old, who earned an England cap in 2001, moved on to PSV Eindhoven following a knee injury at Ibrox.

He said: 'This is a great opportunity for me to show at first hand what I can do.'

City could also be in the market for a new striker with reports linking them with Tottenham's Egyptian star Mido.
