This may be old news to some on here but this is what I have been told by a lad I know at the Standard.
Leandro: Us and Internacional were miles away on valuation. It has nothing to do with when he can / cant sign. We have walked away because of what we see as a ridiculous valuation for a "rough diamond". He is extending his contract there to 2016
Samba: We are in for him and have outbid the scum (his preferred destination), Blackburn and Samba sorting things out as we speak. We will know soon.
Cole: May be sorted in a couple of days. All agreed with pool, just personal terms and medical to sort.
That is all for now.
Edit: Forgot we are signing an young African RB I have never heard of and I cant remember his name. That really is it.
