Transfer Round Up


Celtic defender Erik Sviatchenko has returned to FC Midtjylland on a permanent deal after spending the second half of the season on loan there. The 26 year old was initially signed from Midtjylland when he joined Celtic in 2016 and has returned for an undisclosed fee.


Austrian defender Kevin Wimmer leaves relegated Stoke City to join Hannover 96 on loan for next season. The 25 year old was only signed from Tottenham Hotspur last summer. Stoke have confirmed that the loan deal does contain an option for the deal to be made permanent.


Blackpool have signed winger Harry Pritchard from Maidenhead United. The 25 year old helped the Berkshire club win promotion to the National League last season.


Argentine forward Lautaro Martinez has completed his £20m move to Inter Milan from Racing Club of the Argentinian Primera Division.


Galatasaray have released a trio of players. Koray Gunter, Ryan Donk and Yasin Oztekin will now be searching for a new club.


Police Investigate Karius Death Threats


Once again humanity shows it is incapable of intelligent thought if left to its own devices, as the police begin an investigation into death threats made to Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius and his family. "We take social media posts of this nature extremely seriously. Offences will be investigated," police said. "Officers are aware of a number of comments and threats made via social media. Merseyside Police would like to remind social media users than any offences including malicious communications and threatening behaviour will be investigated."


Fekir Not Close To Liverpool Move


Despite the constant links in the media, Lyon forward Nabil Fekir has said he is "not close" to a more to Liverpool. The 24 year old French attacker has said he has spoken to a number of sides and has yet to make a decision over his future.


Toulouse Confirm Ligue 1 Survival


Toulouse eased to a 4-0 aggregate victory over AC Ajaccio after winning the second leg of their play-off match 1-0, to earn a 15th successive top flight season. Toulouse dominated both legs, so much so that the Ajaccio keeper Riffi Mandanda, younger brother of Marseille keeper Steve Mandanda, was man of the match in the second leg.


Neymar Dismisses Nonsense Rumours


Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian superstar Neymar Jr was asked about the rumours of a move to Real Madrid for next season and dismissed them as nonsense. Neymar said to journalists: "My focus is Brazil, people are talking nonsense and that is not worth answering." He also told the assembled press that he expects to be 100% fit for Brazil's opening World Cup game.


Soyuncu Confirms Arsenal Interest


Freiburg central defender Caglar Soyuncu has been linked with Arsenal for a while and now the Turkish player has told media in his home country that the links are genuine. Soyuncu said: "Arsenal are one of the most important clubs in England. I know they're interested in me, but there's nothing finalized yet about my transfer. After the national team camp we'll have talks."


Rayo Vallecano Earn Return To La Liga


Rayo are probably better known for their support for political and social causes, they released an away strip in 2015 which saw profits donated to social causes and also paid the rent of a local supporter who had been evicted from home in the recent economic crisis in Spain. Now they have a chance to be remembered once more for what they do on pitch after they beat Lugo 1-0 to seal automatic promotion to the Spanish top flight.

Only captain Mikel who has a Russian partner can come with her."
