Newport County have taken two players from Forest Green Rovers. Winger Keanu Marsh-Brown has signed on a permanent deal and midfielder Charlie Cooper has joined on a season-long loan.

Peterborough United have picked up young forward Siriki Dembele for an undisclosed fee. The 21 year old has arrived from Grimsby Town, who he joined in May 2017 after a successful trial. Going out from the Posh was another forward, Ricky Miller, who headed to Port Vale.

Macclesfield Town have made a double signing. Forward Ben Stephens has moved from non-league Stratford Town, where he won their three player of the year awards. He followed on the heels of defender Jamie Grimes, who moved from manager Mark Yates' former club Cheltenham Town.

Incoming to Roma is Justin Kluivert from Ajax for £15.5m. The Roman giants also sold young Italian forward Marco Tumminello to Atalanta for £4.5m. Goalkeeper Antonio Mirante came the other way from Skorupski, joining from Bologna for a fee of under £4m.

Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic has admitted he wants to move. Kovacic told MARCA: "I want to play more and it's better for me to leave Real Madrid. I love football and I love being on the pitch, so I want the opportunity to be a starter. I'm not happy when I'm not playing."
