Contracts

 

 

Transfers

Everton midfielder James Rodriguez is in Qatar to discuss a move away from the Blues.

Free agent Italian forward Manuel Pucciarelli has signed for Melbourne City.

Free agent former Chelsea midfielder Marko Marin has signed for Hungarian side Ferencvaros.

Indian Super League side NorthEast United have signed Mathias Coureur on a free transfer from Samsunspor.

After just 58 days, Saudi Pro League side Al-Ahli have terminated the contract of veteran former Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Paulinho.

 


Injury Round-Up

Liverpool are expected to be without Thiago Alcantara for at least 2 games with the calf issue he picked up on Saturday against Crystal Palace.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Steven Bergwijn has posted a picture on his social media showing his injured foot in a protective boot. The Dutch international had initially recovered from an injury he suffered on international duty, only to have to be subbed off due to injury in the Europa Conference League.

After new Paris Saint-Germain signing Lionel Messi snubbed manager Mauricio Pochettino's handshake on being subbed in the 76th minute of the match against Olympique Lyonnais, speculation has been rife that there was a problem between the two. Since then footage has shown that Messi was taken off due to the PSG star suffering a knee problem, though he did signal to the bench he was fine to play on, Pochettino took the Argentine off as a precaution. Since then Messi has needed treatment on his injured knee, suggesting the decision was the right one.

 


Managerial Changes

MLS's FC Dallas have named their director of soccer operations Marco Feruzzi as interim coach after sacking Luchi Gonzalez.

 


Disciplinary Charges

Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson has revealed that he dropped goalkeeper Christy Pym for disciplinary reasons. Ferguson told the BBC: "In a dressing room after a game I like to keep it there, but I knew the question would come. I've made a decision that it's going to be difficult for that boy to get back. He overstepped the mark on Tuesday night. He apologised for it but I've got to have discipline - there's going to be criticism and you've got to take it like a man."

Two Birmingham City fans were arrested after Peterborough United's Nathan Thompson alleged he was racially abused by them on Saturday. There was also alleged racist abuse aimed at Swansea City's on-loan Liverpool defender Rhys Williams on Saturday in their Championship match against Luton Town.

Raheem Sterling's former agent, Aidy Ward, has been accused of breaching Football Association rules by signing under-age players, in a report by Panorama that surprises no one as it is so well-known that even the FA has launched an investigation into him. Ward, who owns Colossal Sports Management, has also been accused of getting Sterling to speak to young players, including a 15-year-old, in order to entice them to sign with Ward's agency. One former youth player, Foday Nabay, told Panorama that he was approached by Ward when aged just 12. Nabay was starring for Birmingham City's academy at the time but Ward tried to convince Nabay to make a move to Fulham, whereupon Ward would receive a fee of £120,000, despite it being illegal to do so.

Ligue 1's Racing Lens will play their next two home games, at least, in an empty stadium following fan violence at their game against Lille on Saturday. The penalty is just an initial precautionary measure imposed by the French League while a disciplinary committee investigates the incident and decides on a final punishment. Lille fans will also be banned from away matches after the game between the two rivals was halted for 30 minutes due to violent clashes between the two sets of fans at halftime. The incident began when a large number of Lens supporters invaded the pitch and ran towards the away section to attempt to confront the Lille fans.

 


Wolves Launch Own Record Label

Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers have become the first team in the Premier League to launch their own music label. Wolves Records aims to initially support artists in the local area with airplay at their Molineux Stadium and across the club's digital platforms. French Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille have previously launched OM Records in a similar vein to Wolves' plans.
