The papers are led by Boris Johnson’s dinner with European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen in Brussels.
The Daily Mail reports it was a “dramatic night over fish supper”, the i quotes Downing Street as saying “very large gaps remain between the two sides” and The Independent has the Prime Minister leaving Belgium “empty-handed”.
Metro carries the headline “Give us a meal deal”, the PM says in The Guardian an agreement is still possible and The Times reports Mr Johnson “refuses to back down in face of Brexit deadlock”, with the Daily Express also saying the premier was “standing firm”.

There are just four days to “save trade deal after Brussels talks go badly”, according to The Daily Telegraph.
And the Daily Mirror reports Tesco is stockpiling food for the new years amid fears the PM will fail to negotiate a trade pact with the bloc.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
