Joe Cole is quoted in several papers extolling the qualities of Reds striker Robin van Persie after the Dutchman grabbed an equaliser against Cole's new, and old, club. “Take away Messi and Ronaldo and he’s probably the best player in the world," Cole says. "He is different class and in his prime. He is hard to stop and is just sublime. He is a joy to watch and a pain to play against."
The Daily Star reports that Hull are closing in on signing young Reds winger Robbie Brady. The Irishman is reported by the paper to be valued at £2m and Tigers boss Steve Bruce is said to have had an offer accepted by United.
