We reported earlier last week that midfielder Lee Bowyer has hopes of a return to London top of his Christmas list, but his number one target - Charlton Athletic - haven't got the funds to buy him or pay his wages. But that hasn't stopped the ex-Leeds Utd ball-winner putting himself in the shop window ahead of the transfer window next month.
Graeme Souness: "Lee Bowyer has made it known he wants to be in London playing his football. He feels he's been out of London long enough. That's my take on it.
"Lee's our player and until someone comes along with an offer, we accept he'll remain our player. But he wants to go back home, it's not footballing reasons because he's started far more games for me than he's not.
"You have to ask others at the club if they're keen to keep him, all the players like him."
