Just about a week to go in the ongoing January transfer window and we are still getting more transfer updates as well as more done deals.

Check more transfer updates here:

Done Deal: Nomads Sign Australian International Stopper

Connah’s Quay Nomads are pleased to announce the signing of Australian U20 goalkeeper, Kai Calderbank-Park.
Kai joins The Nomads having spent time at Burnley’s academy before for the last four years, with loan spells at Curzon Ashton, Hyde United, most recently joining the newly formed Bury AFC in October.
Born in Wollongong, New South Wales, Kai has represented Australia’s “Socceroos” on a number of occassions throughout various youth age groups. Most recently Kai was in goal for two of the side’s three matches in their qualification group for the AFC U19 Championship.

Barcelona end interest in Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso

Barcelona are reportedly unlikely to pursue a deal for Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso before the end of January.

Alonso has been frozen out by Blues manager Frank Lampard since September, leaving the Spaniard available for transfer at the midway point of the campaign.

According to Sempremilan, the left-back has allegedly emerged as a potential option for Barcelona, who are keen to offload Junior Firpo in the coming days.

However, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano says that AC Milan, the frontrunners for Firpo, have ended their interest in the player.

That has seemingly left Chelsea needing to find another interested club, although they may have to pay a significant portion of Alonso’s wage to attract a bid for the 30-year-old.Source: Sportsmole

Arsenal reach agreement to sign Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid
Arsenal have reached an agreement to sign Martin Odegaard on loan from Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

The 22-year-old is unhappy with his lack of playing time under Zinedine Zidane this season and has asked to leave Madrid before the end of the transfer window.

It’s understood that the midfielder favoured a return to Real Sociedad following his successful loan stint at the club last season.

But according to El Confidencial and El Diario Vasco, a newspaper based in San Sebastian, Real Sociedad have lost out to Arsenal in the race to sign Odegaard.
