Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook is admired by the Premier League giants

Hughton was sacked by Albion at the end of last season and the Ex-Spurs full-back is being careful before jumping into a new role - as he targets a return to the Premier League.

He was previously linked to the Stoke job but is he going to Millwall? "That's news to me!" said Hughton, speaking on the Goals on Sunday, "There have been opportunities," Hughton added. "It's about coming back at the best level I can and if that takes a bit of time... I'd like to think we've done a decent job in the Premier League.

"I know those jobs don't come around that often so I'm realistic but I can't let that put me off where I think I can and would like to manage, which is at the highest level."

Liverpool and Chelsea are both said to be keen on Bournemouth's England midfielder Lewis Cook. The impressive Cherries playmaker is back in action having recovered from a long-term knee-ligament injury. The giants of the Premier League are watching his progress with interest.

Arsenal continue to flutter their eyelids at RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano. The Gunners wanted the 20-year-old in the summer but their £55m offer failed and they brought in David Luiz instead.
