The twice yearly extravaganza of transfer speculation begins tomorrow and reports indicate that three Irish players are set to move.
Jon Walters is unhappy with his latest contract offer and did not train with Stoke today. Norwich and West Brom are sniffing around and Walters is keen to force a move. Expect to see him turn up at the ground Peter Odemwingie was desperate to leave.
Elsewhere, Dan McDonnell is reporting that Eoin Doyle is about to leave Cardiff for Preston. Doyle banged in the goals for Chesterfield until leaving for Cardiff in February. He hit five goals between then and the end of the season but has yet to get a look-in in 2015-16. Deepdale is his expected destination.
Meanwhile, Portsmouth are also sizing up the possibility of taking St. Pat's Sean Hoare.
