Napoli Meet Pepe Asking Price

The president of LOSC Lille has confirmed that Napoli have met their asking price for Ivory Coast winger Nicolas Pepe. Gerard Lopez told Tuttosport: "Last year we asked Pépé to stay, with the promise that we'd sell him in this transfer window. We've received offers that satisfy us in a financial sense from four clubs. De Laurentiis has met our asking price of €80 million. Now it'll be up to the player to decide where to go, also based on the offers that his agents have received from the four clubs." Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti has also confirmed it saying: "They were in our hotel. I greeted them, as I did with all the agents who came here. Obviously, we are interested in Pépé. His agents are here and there's no point hiding that. Negotiations are in progress and we'll see what happens." He also said of James Rodriguez: "You know that he's one of the players that we want to sign. Negotiations are underway. Real want to sell and Napoli want to sign him."

 

County Takeover Completed

Recently relegated Notts County have finally been bought by new owners Alexander and Christoffer Reedtz. The new owners have released a statement: "We are delighted that the deal has been completed, and that the uncertainty about the club's future has come to an end. We can now all shift our focus towards the exciting new football season which is just around the corner. As you may be aware, we run a football analysis company called Football Radar, which has its headquarters in London and further offices in Liverpool and Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Ever since we founded the company 10 years ago it has been our goal to own a professional football club, and we are thrilled that the day has come where we have fulfilled this ambition." It sounds like they are competitors to Matthew Bentham, the owner of Brentford, and are intent on running the club in the same way.

 

Olympic Striker Retires

Burton Albion's striker Marvin Sordell has retired at the age of just 28. Sordell, who represented Great Britain at the London Olympics in 2012, has struggled with mental health problems and has decided to quit playing and help other sufferers. Sordell told Burton's website: "I've been fortunate to spend the past 10 years living my dream, but my happiness now lies outside of the game. My mental health has been severely impacted throughout my career, therefore I feel it's the right time to move forward in my life. I have always been eager to help people who have had similar problems in their lives and going forward I'd like to be able to make a difference in football when it comes to mental wellbeing."

Zamalek Try To Block Kahraba Move

Egyptian giants Zamalek have denied that Mahmoud 'Kahraba' Abdel-Moneim has joined Portugese side CD Aves, despite the signing being announced on CD Aves' website.

FIFA Ban Kabba

Micah Richards Retires

After about nearly 3 years of sitting on the sidelines collecting a pay cheque, Micah 'last man into training first man out' Richards has finally done us all a favour and retired. The 31 year old has not played a game since October 2016 and it is arguable that he has not actually bothered trying to play for about 5 years previous to that.
