Trotters Reach Wages Agreement

Bolton Wanderers have reached an agreement over November's wages with the PFA. Bolton chairman Ken Anderson has been in talks with PFA chief executive since last week and an agreement has now been reached between the two parties. Anderson said: "During the conversation with Gordon we reached an agreement, but unfortunately the documentation that subsequently followed on Friday did not reflect what l thought had been agreed, which further delayed everything yet again. I had another conversation with Gordon yesterday and what l thought had been agreed is now accepted and hopefully will bring this matter to a swift end and we can all move on." Anderson also denied that the club need to sell players in January to balance the books at the club.


Hearts And Hibs Escape Punishment

Dundee Appeal Red Card

Dundee have appealed against the red card shown to their defender Nathan Ralph on the grounds of wrongful dismissal. The free kick he gave away led to Rangers scoring their only goal of the game. Dundee manager Jim McIntyre said that he was told by the referee that the sending off was for denying a goalscoring opportunity but he believes that was a mistake. McIntyre told the BBC: "The decision goes against us. The ref has given it for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity, which it's not because Andy Boyle's there. Originally, I thought it was for dangerous and reckless play. Really disappointed that that's gone against us."


Rose To Return To MLS

Former Seattle Sounders midfielder Andy Rose is set to return to MLS in January from current club Motherwell. Rose, whose family live in North America, will be joining Vancouver Whitecaps. Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson said: "We had a gentlemen's agreement with Andy when he signed his new deal that if an opportunity presented itself back near his home and family, we would allow him to go and do it. Andy has been a superb professional during his time at Motherwell and I have no doubts he'll give everything in the last six games before departing for North America."


Walker-Peters Signs Contract Extension

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Kyle Walker-Peters has signed a long term contract with the North London club. The 21 year old came through Spurs' academy and has made 11 senior appearances so far since winning man of the match on his full Premier League debut.

Keeper Bites Piece Out Of Own Tongue

Augsburg keeper Andreas Luthe collided with opposition forward Kevin Volland in the Bundesliga game against Bayer Leverkusen. In the collision Luthe bit off part of his own tongue, but played on for the rest of the game anyway. Luthe said: "It felt like I was hit by a car. I bit on my tongue and a part came loose. It's nothing to show on TV. I spit blood all the time. But at one point the bleeding stopped. But when I suck there's still blood. The doctors asked all the questions and I knew all the answers. My name, the score and so on."


Villareal Turn To Plaza

Former Villareal B team coach Luis Garcia Plaza has been appointed as head coach of the first team after Javi Calleja was sacked. The Yellow Submarine are just 3 points above La Liga's relegation zone after a 3-2 loss to Celta Vigo on Saturday.


Barca Back Out Of Miami Game

Barcelona have announced that they will not be taking part in the proposed La Liga match which was set for the United States next month. Girona were set to move their home match with their Catalan neighbours to Miami, but opposition from La Liga president Javier Tebas, FIFA, Spanish players union and the Spanish football federation has stopped any deal from being approved, making Barca reconsider their involvement. A Barca statement read: "The FC Barcelona Board of Directors have agreed to withdraw their disposal to play their game against Girona FC in Miami, after noting a lack of consensus over this proposal. FC Barcelona were and remain willing to play a La Liga game in Miami, and accepted that income from the game would be shared amongst all Primera División and Segunda División clubs, following the same criteria of television rights money distribution, but consider that this project will not prosper until there is an agreement between all parties."
