Championship side Norwich City have signed Southampton midfielder Harrison Reed on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old has made 32 appearances for the Saints since coming through the club's youth system and has become the Canaries' fifth signing of the summer.

"From the outside, it's a massive club pushing to get back to the Premier League," Reed told the club website.

"The philosophy here suits me down to the ground, so I'm really excited and very happy it's done."

Open to pay winner in US dollars

This year's Open Championship winner will be paid in US dollars rather than sterling, the organiser has said.

A fall in the value of the pound caused the Royal and Ancient Golf Club to consider the change.

On Wednesday, chief executive Martin Slumbers said the move was because the US dollar is the "most widely adopted currency for prize money in golf".

The 2017 event begins on 20 July and the winner will pick up $1.85m (£1.4m) from a prize pool of $10.25m (£7.9m).

Royal Birkdale will host the championship for a 10th time, and the first since Padraig Harrington lifted the Claret Jug in 2008.

We all love a good Twitter spat...

Rory McIlroy says he has stopped using social media following his row with former US PGA champion Steve Elkington.

The world number four and Elkington engaged in a public spat on Twitter after McIlroy missed the cut at the US Open for the second year running.

The American said McIlroy, having won four majors and with "100mill in bank", was bored playing without Tiger Woods.

McIlroy responded with: "More like 200mill, not bad for a 'bored' 28-year-old. Plenty more where that came from."

"I'm looking to compete at my best every single match I play. I'm going to give my all. I'm here with the intention of wanting to be part of the event for the whole two weeks."

Enzo has just left Real Madrid, managed by his dad, to join fellow La Liga club Alaves.

"I don't think much about that," the 22-year-old attacking midfielder said when asked about comparisons with Zinedine.

"I'm Enzo, I'm different, a different player."

Swansea City defender Jordi Amat is in talks with La Liga side Real Betis regarding a possible season-long loan deal.

Swansea confirmed the season-long loan deal after he joined for a club record £15.5m from Atletico Madrid in August, 2016, but only scored once.

Borja, 24, almost joined Villarreal on loan in January, but the move fell through.
