Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce hoping to take Leonardo Ulloa and Daniel Amartey on loan from Leicester City

Steve Bruce has launched a double raid on Leicester City for Leonardo Ulloa and Daniel Amartey. Bruce, the Aston Villa manager, wants to persuade the former Premier League champions to sanction loan deals as he moves to strengthen his promotion bid. Villa are restricted by Financial Fair Play rules in January but have the budget to sign two players on loan for the remainder of the season, and the Leicester pair are top targets. Ulloa, the striker, has had limited first-team opportunities under first Craig Shakespeare and then Claude Puel this season despite signing a new contract in the summer. Leicester would prefer Villa to agree a deal which becomes permanent in the summer, while Ulloa could be guaranteed more game time at the King Power Stadium if Islam Slimani leaves this month. Ghana international Amartey’s versatility appeals to Villa as he can play in defence, primarily at right-back, while he can also operate effectively in midfield. Amartey was signed by Claudio Ranieri in January 2016 for £5m from FC Copenhagen. January 2018 transfer window Bruce said: “There's nothing yet, but one or two things are bubbling. I think it will be more towards the end of January. “It's difficult to loan players right now, but two or three weeks changes things when players move around. We have to be patient, but there are one or two bubbling along.” Meanwhile, it has emerged that Villa’s Championship rivals Millwall have asked to take Tommy Elphick on loan. Elphick, 30, has struggled for games under Bruce but performed brilliantly in the victories over Middlesbrough and Bristol City. Villa may now opt to keep the former Bournemouth defender.

FA Cup fourth round draw: Yeovil Town get dream home tie against Manchester United

Yeovil Town welcome MANCHESTER UNITED Liverpool will play West Brom Tottenham handed a trip to Newport County Brighton v Crystal Palace: live Yeovil Town have been given a wonderful opportunity to try and knock Manchester United out of the FA Cup after they were drawn at home to Jose Mourinho’s side. Yeovil, who are battling against relegation in League Two, are the lowest ranked side left in the competition, knocking Bradford City out in the previous round, and could not have asked for a better draw. Although it is only the fourth time in the club’s history they have reached round four, it will be the second time in the space of just three years that Yeovil have faced Manchester United, losing 2-0 to the Red Devils back in 2015. Wayne Rooney swaps shirts after Man Utd's 2-0 win over Yeovil in 2015 Credit: GETTY IMAGES “I don’t think I could pick anyone better to go up against in the world we live in at the moment,” said Yeovil manager Darren Way. “It was an extraordinary achievement to get to the fourth round and to get Manchester United is a special moment for the club. “I want everyone to enjoy it and embrace the fantastic challenge. The players and supporters deserve it. It’s going to be a magical day." There was also a plum tie for another League Two club, as Newport County, who shocked Leeds United in the Third Round, were also drawn at home to Tottenham Hotspur. Newport manager Michael Flynn, who has done an excellent job in south Wales since saving the club from relegation last season, said: “It’s amazing to draw Tottenham. “It’s a massive achievement for the whole football club and we can’t wait for the game already.  “The players have worked so hard to get to this stage and this is a reward for them for all the toil they’ve put in so far this season.  “For them to play against guys like Harry Kane and Dele Alli will be amazing, but I hope Tottenham rest one or two.  “It’s huge for the whole city. It’s going to be packed out again at Rodney Parade and financially hopefully it will be a big one for the club.  Both games are likely to be chosen for live television coverage, with the prospect of a famous giant-killing act already fuelling talk of the enduring romance of the FA Cup.

Favourites Manchester City will have to wait for a replay between Cardiff City and Mansfield Town next week before they learn who their opponents are, away from home in the next round. There was less good fortune for Nottingham Forest, who knocked out Arsenal, and Coventry City who beat Stoke City in the Third round. Forest, who have appointed former Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka as their new manager, will travel to fellow Championship side Hull City, while Coventry have a tricky away game at MK Dons to contend with.

FA Cup fourth round draw: Yeovil Town get dream home tie against Manchester United

Yeovil Town welcome MANCHESTER UNITED Liverpool will play West Brom Tottenham handed a trip to Newport County Brighton v Crystal Palace: live Yeovil Town have been given a wonderful opportunity to try and knock Manchester United out of the FA Cup after they were drawn at home to Jose Mourinho’s side. Yeovil, who are battling against relegation in League Two, are the lowest ranked side left in the competition, knocking Bradford City out in the previous round, and could not have asked for a better draw. Although it is only the fourth time in the club’s history they have reached round four, it will be the second time in the space of just three years that Yeovil have faced Manchester United, losing 2-0 to the Red Devils back in 2015.

The players and supporters deserve it. It’s going to be a magical day." There was also a plum tie for another League Two club, as Newport County, who shocked Leeds United in the Third Round, were also drawn at home to Tottenham Hotspur. Newport manager Michael Flynn, who has done an excellent job in south Wales since saving the club from relegation last season, said: “It’s amazing to draw Tottenham. “It’s a massive achievement for the whole football club and we can’t wait for the game already.  “The players have worked so hard to get to this stage and this is a reward for them for all the toil they’ve put in so far this season.  “For them to play against guys like Harry Kane and Dele Alli will be amazing, but I hope Tottenham rest one or two.  “It’s huge for the whole city.

Bournemouth 2 Wigan 2: Steve Cook spares Eddie Howe's blushes as FA Cup gamble almost backfires again

A 93rd-minute equaliser from Steve Cook spared Eddie Howe another FA Cup embarrassment as Bournemouth salvaged a third-round replay against the impressive League One leaders Wigan Athletic. The home team also had referee  Andrew Madley to thank, after he waved away strong Wigan penalty  appeals as Ivan Toney went down  moments before Cook’s equaliser. “Being honest, I think I’ve seen them given. It’s a tough call. I don’t think it was absolutely clear-cut,” said Howe. Howe stood by his team selection  after making eight changes following a punishing festive period during which Bournemouth earned five precious  Premier League points. “I felt the changes were right for us, for this game. I don’t regret them. It’s another game for us now,” he said,  referring to next week’s replay at the DW Stadium. “It’s not ideal.” Howe is idolised in Bournemouth for his achievements at the club but faced some rare criticism when he made 11 changes and slumped to a 3-0 defeat at Millwall last season. Bournemouth in action against Wigan Credit: PA He must have been fearing another barrage before Cook rose to head home Marc Pugh’s pinpoint cross in the dying moments after Bournemouth had trailed 2-0 at the break. They were disjointed and totally outfought in the first half as Wigan made a mockery of their third-tier status, fully deserving their lead. “I don’t think we quote got our rhythm going but I’m pleased to come back, I think we should have won the game,” added Howe. Paul Cook’s Wigan side came into this tie on the back of a 10-game unbeaten run, with six consecutive clean sheets. The visitors’ bench were left  incensed after being refused the late  penalty, leading Madley to send Cook’s assistant, Leam Richardson, to the stands for his protests. “Unfortunately the referee hasn’t given us it. I thought he [Bournemouth goalkeeper Artur Boruc] should have been sent off as well,” said Cook. “There’s no criticism from me for the officials in any way, shape or form. It’s a difficult job and those split-second  decisions are so tough. I’ve just been in to speak to the referee and I don’t mind saying that, at that stage of the game, common sense should prevail. The  referee should have just come over and given everyone a lecture.” The fiery Liverpudlian was able to smile after an enthralling match and was full of respect for the work Howe has done. “When you come off the pitch in any sport I think it’s important you feel the lads have done everything they can,” Cook added. “The pleasing thing for the crowd in the stadium today is that you saw two teams really trying to win the game. “I’m sure the Bournemouth players will tell you they’ve been involved in a good game. There are too many teams that park the bus today in my opinion, and we didn’t do that.” Max Power tackles Bournemouth's Callum Wilson Credit: REUTERS Wigan took just three minutes to go in front, with Will Grigg on fire to sweep home Gavin Massey’s knock-down after Reece James’ deep cross, enhancing his cult hero status. It could have been worse for Howe’s men, who were dreadful in possession, and after half an hour, it was. The  second goal though was fortuitous as Nick Powell’s free-kick looped off  Emerson Hyndman in the wall and past the statuesque Boruc in the Bournemouth goal. The home side had chances of their own and Wigan goalkeeper Christian Walton twice saved brilliantly from Lys Mousset, given a rare start in the Bournemouth attack. Howe acted swiftly, bringing Marc Pugh and Jordon Ibe off the bench at half-time and making several positional changes. The tactical switch worked and the home side were able to exert far more sustained pressure. Ibe cleverly disguised a pass to Mousset who lashed home his first goal for the club and brought Bournemouth back into the game. With spaces opening up as both sides’ players tired, Wigan retained their threat despite both Grigg and Powell being substituted. The wonderfully named Max Power should have restored the two-goal cushion but fired wastefully over from the edge of the area. Cook has an impressive goalscoring record for a defender and almost he levelled the scores as he headed Ryan Fraser’s corner on to the crossbar. But the 26-year-old was not going to be denied and rose in the final seconds to head in Pugh’s cross and give Bournemouth the draw they had just about deserved, though neither manager seemed to be too excited at the prospect of an additional game.
