Review of the Day



Dundee United's Scottish full-back Jamie Robson has signed a 3 year deal.

Brandon Mason has signed a new 3 year contract with Coventry City.



Montpellier have released Facundo Piriz.

Free agent defender Adam El-Abd has signed for Stevenage.

Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Sadou Diallo is joining Accrington Stanley on loan despite the transfer window being shut. Stanley say the move was approved by the EFL when it was completed late on deadline day but they are awaiting clearance from the FA and Premier League.

Fulham have agreed a deal to sign Chelsea defender Michael Hector for an undisclosed fee in January. Hector will be training with Fulham until the move is completed in January.

Kilmarnock have signed free agent Stephen Hendrie.


Injury Round-Up

Birmingham City winger Jefferson Montero has been ruled out for "several weeks" after picking up a thigh injury in the 2-1 win over Stoke City. The 30 year old is on loan from Swansea City, where he also struggled regularly with injuries.

Republic of Ireland's Sheffield United duo David McGoldrick and Callum Robinson have been ruled out of the friendly with Bulgaria due to injury. McGoldrick has a shoulder injury he picked up in Thursday's game with Switzerland while Robinson suffered a hamstring strain in the same game.


Spurs Tried For Bruno

The president of Sporting Clube de Portugal has confirmed that Tottenham Hotspur tried to sign their midfielder Bruno Fernandes in the summer. Frederico Varandas said: "We had offers for Fernandes, but only Tottenham were really serious. They offered €40 million plus €20 million in add-ons. In winning the English league and the Champions League, these conditions were too difficult to achieve, so I could not accept."


Exiles Defender Facing Biting Charge

Newport County's Ryan Inniss has been charged with violent conduct over an alleged biting offence in an EFL Trophy defeat against West Ham United. Inniss faces at least a 3 match ban for his sending off, but would face further punishment if the FA find him guilty of biting Reece Hannam. The FA said: "It is alleged that his behaviour in or around the 90th minute constitutes violent conduct, in circumstances where the standard punishment that would otherwise apply is clearly insufficient."


Newport To Offload International

Newport County manager Michael Flynn has hit out at striker Keanu Marsh-Brown who headed off to play for his country Guyana without informing the club. Flynn said: "Keanu has gone away on international duty without telling me, he was given a letter to give to me, didn't give it to me and he didn't want to go out on loan, so I am not even considering about Keanu, he is right at the back of my mind. He is still a Newport player, but I haven't got a clue where he has gone, I haven't seen the letter. When he comes back... we will find out and try and get him out. I am really disappointed as you can tell. But I am not wasting my time on Keanu. He's shown a lack of thought and it is something I am unhappy with. It's nothing personal. But I have made it clear he's not in my plans. Some players work, some don't. If you show me a manager who says he gets every signing right, I will show you a liar."


Bond Quits

Southend United will be searching for a new manager after Kevin Bond quit due to losing 6 games at the start of the season in League One. Bond only arrived in April and saved the Shrimpers from relegation but the new season saw the club return to its previous struggles. Chairman Ron Martin said: "Unfortunately the euphoria at the end of last season hasn't translated to the pitch so far this season. However, I remain confident that the players we have at Southend United, including the strong signings made by Kevin Bond, will enable a successful season under the guidance of a new manager. His accomplishments in keeping the club in League One last season needs to be acknowledged and will long be remembered by the club's supporters."


Managerial Merry-Go-Round Stops At Monk

The latest failed manager to get back into work at an English club is Garry Monk, who was sacked by Birmingham City in June. Monk has now been appointed by Sheffield Wednesday to replace Steve Bruce, who left to take charge of boyhood club Newcastle United. How long until Wednesday are moaning about Monk's insistence on using agent James Featherstone in every transfer deal?


Liberia Expel Tisdell

Liberia's FA have expelled Tonia Tisdell from their national team squad due to indiscipline. New coach Peter Butler said Tisdall "had shown disrespect to the code of conduct, adopted by the LFA in July which was delivered to all players following their arrival in Monrovia."


Maradona Back In Argentinian Football

Diego Maradona has got his first coaching job in Argentina since 2010 after being named as manager of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata. He left his previous role as manager of Mexican club Dorados de Sinaloa in June. Maradona said: "Finally it's now official, I am very happy to be the new coach of Gimnasia. I want to thank the president Gabriel Pellegrino for this opportunity and say to all the fans that we are going to work with our hearts and souls for El Lobo."
