Benfica midfielder Manuel Fernandes admits he doesn't know where he will be playing next season.

After last season's spell in England on-loan at Portsmouth and Everton, Fernandes' exploits in the U21 European Championships have attracted the interest of West Ham United.

"I don't know what'll happen," Fernandes said last night. "If I return to Benfica, I'll do so happily. But we'll just have to wait and see."

Meanwhile, DN says Blackburn Rovers and AZ Alkmaar are ready to move should Benfica drop their £12 million asking price.
