Veteran 42-year-old forward Kevin Ellison has signed a new 1-year deal with Newport County as a player/coach.

Harrogate Town have given Jack Muldoon and George Thomson new contracts.



Tottenham Hotspur have signed Bryan Gil from Sevilla. Erik Lamela has moved to Sevilla in part-exchange along with £22.5m.

Pacos Ferreira have signed Rui Pires on loan from Troyes.

Jamie Cumming has signed for Gillingham on loan for the season from Chelsea.

Swindon Town have re-signed Ben Gladwin on a free transfer from MK Dons.

Aston Villa youngster Finn Azaz has signed for Newport County on loan for the season.

Scunthorpe United have taken Coventry City goalkeeper Tom Billson on a season-long loan deal.

An undisclosed fee has been paid by Morecambe to sign Jonah Ayunga from Bristol Rovers.

Teenage Chelsea full-back Henry Lawrence has joined AFC Wimbledon on loan for the season.

Matija Sarkic has joined Birmingham City on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Manchester United and Real Madrid have agreed a fee for the transfer of France international defender Raphael Varane.

Celta de Vigo left-back David Junca has signed for Girona on a free transfer.

Barnsley have signed Obbi Oulare from Standard Liege.

Bournemouth's Spanish left-back Diego Rico has signed for Real Sociedad.

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic's brother Uros has been released by Qarabag.


Injury Round-Up

Derby County's Republic of Ireland midfielder Jason Knight will be out for around 3 months after a challenge during a training match on him by the club's 'manager' Wayne Rooney. Knight has suffered an ankle injury that will rule him out of his country's three World Cup qualifiers in September.


Managerial Changes

Aston Villa's assistant head coach John Terry has left the club. Terry is looking to move into a head coach role of his own, after working under Dean Smith since October 2018.

Fernando Torres will be returning to coaching Atletico Madrid's Under-19 squad this season. The former Liverpool and Chelsea striker took a break from the role for personal reasons in February.

Bayern Munich have moved Danny Schwarz to a new role of loan player supervisor. Schwarz previously helped coach Bayern Munich's reserve team, as the 3.Liga required a manager with a coaching license and Martin Demechelis is still working on his badges. Relegation to the Regionalliga has meant a qualified coach is no longer required, leaving Schwarz without an assigned role.


Disciplinary Charges

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar and his former club Barcelona have reached an out-of-court settlement.

Bristol Rovers manager Joey Barton has denied assaulting his wife. The 38-year-old will stand trial in December accused of grabbing wife Georgia by the throat and kicking her in the head.

Wayne Rooney has reported photographs of himself to police, which is understandable, as posting pictures of something that ugly really should be a crime. The pictures appear to show the Derby County mismanager asleep in a chair while a number of women pose next to him.

It has taken just 2 years, but Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has finally apologised for refusing to come off the pitch when then manager Maurico Sarri tried to substitute him in the Carabao Cup final in 2019.


Rashford Repairs Raise Charity Money

The left-over money raised to repair Marcus Rashford's mural, after it was defaced by cretins following England's defeat in the Euro 2020 final, is to be donated to a foodbank charity. Fare Share Greater Manchester will receive around £40,000 from the fund, which was set up to cover the costs of repairs to the wall.
