Dannies swap clubs

Sheffield United have pushed through a swap deal involving Danny Webber and Danny Cullip.
Watford have agreed to the transfer after admitting they might be forced to lose their talented striker before the transfer window closes on Thursday.
Webber, formerly with Manchester United, has not had the best of seasons in front of goal but has still shown flashes of his undoubted talent.
The 23-year-old will add pace and a fresh option to Neil Warnock's attack as The Blades look to gain promotion to The Premiership via the play-offs.
Ex-Brighton defender Cullip is heading back south again after playing a leading role in the team's FA Cup draw at Arsenal recently.
The rugged centre back had a goal bizarrely disallowed against Highbury and was the player involved in the spat that saw Dennis Bergkamp sent off and Jose Antonio Reyes subsequently banned for three games.
The deal is on loan until the end of the current season with a view to being made permanent if the two clubs are still in agreement in the summer.
The two sides have still to meet in The Championship and the players will not be allowed to feature in that game.
Watford are currently managerless but Ray Lewington was reported to be involved in the negotiations during the early phase of the transfer talks.
