Teenage Bolton Wanderers midfielder Luca Connell has signed for Celtic.

Emanuel Osadebe has found a new club following his release from Cambridge United at the end of the season. The 22 year old midfielder will be lining up for Macclesfield Town.

Cheltenham Town defender Jordon Forster has moved to Dundee. They have also signed former Rangers midfielder Jamie Ness from Plymouth Argyle.

Real Madrid winger Jorge de Frutos has signed for Real Valladolid on loan.

Cedric Yambere has left Ligue 1 side Dijon to move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Ettifaq.

Valencia have paid over £5m for Russian winger Denis Cheryshev from Villareal.

Enzo Zidane, son of Zizou, has been released by Swiss Challenge League side Lausanne-Sport.

Augsburg have released South Korean midfielder Ja-cheol Koo.

George's US international son Timothy Weah has not spent long back at Paris Saint-Germain following his loan move to Celtic. Immediately upon his return to PSG, Weah has made a permanent move to Lille OSC.

Alban Lafont has joined Nantes on loan from Fiorentina with an option to make the deal permanent and a buyback option for Fiorentina. As the Viola statement reads: "ACF Fiorentina communicates that it has reached an agreement for the sale, on a temporary basis with a purchase option and a repurchase option for the viola until June 30, 2021, of the sporting rights of Alban Lafont to Nantes football club."

James Tilley has returned to Brighton & Hove Albion at the end of his loan deal with Cork City.

 

Trotters Close To Takeover

The administrators of Bolton Wanderers have said that the takeover has taken a "major step closer" as an agreement has been signed with the preferred bidder, who cannot be revealed until Monday for legal reasons. The takeover will not stop the club from starting next season in League One with a 12 point deduction due to going into administration.

 

Nigeria Staves Off Player Strike

The Nigerian Football Federation have paid their national side the outstanding bonuses and allowances just in time to head off a threatened players' revolt before their final group game at the Africa Cup of Nations against Madagascar. These pay rows have been commonplace down the years with Nigeria's international sides, as coaching staff and players often go without promised payments for years.

 

Mobile App Announces Signing By Mistake

Despite the deal to sign Mateo Kovacic on a permanent transfer from Real Madrid not having been officially confirmed yet, there were a few redfaces in Chelsea's social media department after a story about him led with a mention of him making a permanent switch. The article, entitled 'Mateo Kovacic - My Footballing Firsts' started with the line: "After securing a permanent switch to Stamford Bridge following a successful loan spell at Chelsea from Real Madrid." It went on to ask Kovacic about his "First feeling when you signed for Chelsea..." To which he is quoted as replying: "It was an amazing feeling to sign for Chelsea, first on loan and now permanently." I may be reading between the lines and adding two and two together and coming up with 4 but it does seem like they are saying he has joined. I could be wrong however as the message is very subtle.
