Bournemouth are determined not to allow Callum Wilson to leave for a cut-price fee amid interest from Tottenham.

The 28-year-old is on the shortlist of names Spurs are weighing up moving for in their search for a back-up for Harry Kane – although the £30million price tag may prove a stumbling block.

It’s all change at Barcelona! President Josep Bartomeu has revealed that Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann are among just eight players – including Lionel Messi, of course – that are not for sale.
