CREWE ALEX DEFENDER AGREES NEW DEAL

Crewe Alexandra defender Perry Ng has agreed fresh terms with the club, according to reports. Ng signed to remain for an extra year with the League Two outfit.


The youngster’s deal was set to lapse but he has extended for another 12 months with an option to stay for another year if he reaches a certain number of games.

Ng is a grad of the club’s academy. He featured in 20 games for the senior team this term. He played in central midfield as the season moved to a halt.

The manager David Artell said he was to offer Danny Hollands a deal as well but the 31-year old player favoured a switch to non-league Eastleigh. The Hampshire-based club managed to convince the player to drop a level. Hollands, a former Portsmouth star, reportedly consented to the move despite the club finishing 15th in the National League.

Hollands joined from Portsmouth on a free deal last year. He played in 29 games before he picked up a serious hamstring injury. His deal with Eastleigh is believed to be a two-year deal with an option of extending. Read more

WEST HAM MAY PLAY WITHIN CLOSED DOORS

An MP has said that Premier League side, West Ham would have to be forced to play within closed doors if there is any other repeat of the violence that marred Chelsea’s game with West Ham on Wednesday.


During the game, hundreds of fans clashed while seats, bottles and coins were thrown all around at the London Stadium. So far this season on West Ham’s new ground, this has been said to be the latest outbreak of disorder.
“None of these problems were unforeseeable given the nature of the stadium,” said Mark Field MP.

“Within the next 14 days, the West Ham board should present a detailed plan to the Football Association and Premier League outlining what they are going to do about security. There have been clear failings. If there is a repeat of the violence, the next two or three home games for West Ham should be played behind closed doors,” he told Evening Standard.

Speaking to the Telegraph, Damian Collins who is the chairman of the select committee for culture, media and sport, has said that where West Ham fails to properly police their new ground, then they have to stick to playing behind closed doors without the presence of any football fans. Read more

SPURS CONFIRM THE SIGNING OF WANYAMA

Premier League team Tottenham Hotspurs have confirmed the signing of Victor Wanyama from Southampton.


Spurs say they are happy that the player agreed to join them ahead of the coming season, but did not disclose the transfer fee. The former Celtic man is believed to have agreed a five year deal with the club, tying him till 2021.

Dimitri Payet has suddenly become the focus for several top clubs

West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet has suddenly become the focus for several top clubs following his imperious performances in the last 12 months.

The Marseille man looked short of takers when he came to West Ham in the summer. After an impressive debut season in the Premier league, he has continued their good form by scoring in France’s opening game at the Euro 2016. His goal at the last minute of the game against Romania helped the hosts secure a 2-1 win. At 29 years of age,Payet may be something of a late bloomer, but that has not prevented interest from several big clubs in the last few weeks.

The player’s agent, though, has placed a stunning £60 million value on the player. He says that only a few clubs in the world could afford this astronomical sum. However, it remains to be seen if any interest in club will pursue the interest, as they will look towards several younger alternatives available at much lower price. The huge sum of money may have effectively sealed his chances of securing a move away from West Ham to a bigger club should he be in the mood. PSG, Manchester City, and Chelsea are thought to be the clubs who have enquired about Payet. Read more

Roy Keane may return to Management soon

Roy Keane has expressed his desire to return to management after learning about the vacancy at Celtic.


The Scottish club parted company with manager Ronny Deila, who will leave at the end of the season. The Norwegian has struggled to match expectations throughout his time at Celtic Park. Keane has never been hugely successful in his managerial career apart from his first season at Sunderland. Deila has been in charge of the Scottish club for less than two years, but they have not made any impact in European competitions. This has been one of the biggest criticisms aimed at the Norwegian.

Keane has been out of work as a manager since leaving Ipswich Town in 2011. He has been involved with national teams and clubs as an assistant manager, but it is far from being the big man. Even as an assistant manager, he has been out of work since 2014. Neil Lennon has been regarded as the hot favourite for the job. He knows the club extremely well after having enjoyed four great years before the regime of Deila. Lennon is also available just like Keane after having left Bolton Wanderers by mutual consent following their relegation to League One. However, his reputation as a manager may have taken a hit as a result of this relegation. Read more
