Manucho (Manchester United to Hull City)

Hull on Friday agreed to take Manchester United's Angolan striker Manucho on loan until the end of the season.

Manucho has made one Barclays Premier League appearance to date for United, who last season loaned him out to Greek side Panathinaikos. Hull still have to secure a work permit for the 25-year-old. The Tigers are also chasing former Liverpool right-back Steve Finnan from Espanyol.

Gael Givet (Marseille to Blackburn Rovers)

France defender Gael Givet has joined Blackburn Rovers on loan from Marseille for the rest of the season, the Premier League side have announced.

Rovers added they had an option to purchase the defender on a full-time basis at the end of the season. Givet, who can play at left-back or in central defence, has been capped 13 times by France but has not played for Marseille this season after falling out of favour with manager Eric Gerets.

Aziza Makukula (Benfica to Bolton Wanderers)

Portugal international Aziza Makukula of Benfica has been loaned to Bolton till the end of the season, Benfica said on Friday, after a move to West Bromwich Albion fell through.

The Portuguese club added, in a statement on Portuguese financial site CMVM, that there would also be an option to buy the 27-year-old striker for five million euros. The West Brom deal did not succeed because Makukula did not want to join a club which was bottom of the Premier League

    Givet is an experienced player but he has a problem, he is slow.
    Makukula is not the solution for WBA, he is a normal player.
