    Tottenham had thought to be closing in on deals for the two 24-year-olds.

    Every member of the 121-strong FA Council is to undergo equality and diversity training.

    "It is a four-year deal which reflects his new role and his development. This is as big news as we could get. He is still a young man but as it stands he is a massive part of our squad. Ross Barkley is the type of player every one wants to pay to see."

    Jordan Ellis: How about Jean-Alain Boumsong? £8 million from Rangers to Newcastle. He made Titus Bramble look world class.

    Ronaldinho

    Harry Redknapp and Ronaldinho... a match made in heaven?

    The Daily Express reports it could be on the cards after the 34-year-old had his contract torn up by Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro on Monday.

  34. 'Liverpool need another striker'

    Football

    Liverpool can forget about finishing in the top four if they fail to sign another striker, according to the club's former defender Steve Nicol.

    The much-publicised collapse of Loic Remy's move to Anfield has posed a dilemma for manager Brendan Rodgers.

    "You can't expect Daniel Sturridge to do it all on his own, says Nicol, 52. "Without another striker though, in case he gets injured, they are up the creek without a paddle.

    "There isn't another striker currently at the club that is going to take them into the top four, never mind challenge for the Premier League title. Liverpool are in trouble. They have to find somebody and I'm not sure where they're going to find them."

    Cricket

    Could the unthinkable happen and England's cricketers rediscover how to win a Test match?

    In pursuit of their total of 569, India are struggling at the Rose Bowl and have spluttered to 108-3 at lunch. It is not all sunshine and joy though, well, not for Ian Bell at least.

  38. Douglas in demand

    Football

    Arsenal are preparing a £15.8m bid for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Douglas Costa, reports the Daily Star.

    The Brazilian, 23, is unsettled by the conflict in Ukraine and has already been the subject of Gunners interest when they bid for him in 2011.

    The Star claims new Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is also a fan, so there could well be a scrap for his signature.

    Douglas Costa
  39. Reus to leave Dortmund?

    Football

    Borussia Dortmund and Germany star Marco Reus is engineering a move - with Manchester United a possible destination, reports Bild.

    The German press says the 25-year-old - who scored 21 goals in 39 matches for Dortmund last season - has turned down a contract offer.

  40. Where is the action?

    It is fair to say it has proven a quiet morning on the transfer front. What are all these managers and agents doing?

    No deals of note in the Premier League today and only a smattering in the Championship and Europe's big leagues.

  41. Forest close in on target

    Football

    Nottingham Forest are close to signing Scotland international winger Chris Burke, BBC Radio Nottingham reports. The 30-year-old is a free agent after his contract with Championship rivals Birmingham City expired.

  42. La Liga wants to dominate

    Football

    Gareth Bale

    The president of Spain's top division says he wants to attract all the best players in the world to the country and rival the commercial power of the English Premier League.

    La Liga boss Javier Tebas even joked he wants "the best 500 players" in global football in the league.

    Luis Suarez (£75m) and Gareth Bale (£85.3m) have left England for Spain in the last two summer transfer windows.

    "We are not going to stop. We want the best 500 players," said Tebas.

  43. Raleigh to retire

    Savio at West Ham

    Karl Bristow: Chris Sutton was pretty awful at Chelsea. £10 million was not to be sniffed at during the 90's. Didn't live up to it.

    Lloyd Bowman: Savio Nsereko at West Ham, signed for a club record. 0 Goals and went AWOL!

    West Ham paid £9m for Savio. He made 10 appearances, nine as a sub.

  46. West Ham on Allardyce

    Football

    Sam Allardyce

    West Ham co-chairman David Gold has said he accidentally 'favourited' a derogatory tweet about manager Sam Allardyce.

    Gold and David Sullivan retained Allardyce at the end of last season despite criticism from some fans over the style of football, and there had been renewed speculation his position was under threat.

    But Gold tweets: "After a 33 hour flight from New Zealand, I was in my car scanning through my tweets and it seems I accidently favourited one.

    "It has made some of the papers today so I should clarify that I did not and would never, deliberately or intentionally, endorse a tweet that questions our manager's position. Lesson: don't use twitter when you're jet lagged!"

  48. Commonwealth Games

    The big news coming out of the Commonwealth Games today is that 16-year-old weightlifting gold medallist Chika Amalaha has failed a drugs test.

    The Nigerian won in the women's 53kg category last Friday, but her 'A' sample was found to contain both amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide.

    She will have her 'B' sample tested on Wednesday.

  49. Remy Toon reunion costly

    Football

    Newcastle United will need to make Loic Remy their biggest earner and pay a fee of about £15m if they are to take the Frenchman back to the north east, reports the Newcastle Chronicle.

    Remy, who was on loan at St James' Park last season, saw an £8.5m move to Liverpool collapse over the weekend.

    But the release clause activated by the Reds only applies to teams in the Champions League, meaning the Magpies could have to part with almost double, as well as £80,000-a-week wages.

    Could Dejan Lovren's move from Southampton to Liverpool mean Daniel Agger leaves Anfield for Barcelona?

    A £12m deal is what is being reported in some Spanish media. Barca are keen to find a replacement for the retired Carles Puyol and Agger, 29, has fallen down the pecking order on Merseyside.

    The Reds have Lovren, Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure as their main central defensive options.

    BBC Sport

    The Queen and Estimate

    The Queen's horse Estimate is set to run at the Glorious Goodwood meeting on Thursday despite recently testing positive for morphine.

    Estimate, a five-year-old mare trained by Sir Michael Stoute, has been declared to run in the Goodwood Cup.

    The horse faces disqualification from last month's second-placed finish in the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot, a race she won 12 months earlier.

    But the positive test has been blamed on poppy seeds contaminating feed.

    Estimate's opponents on Thursday will include last year's victor Brown Panther, co-owned by former England footballer Michael Owen.

  59. Channon questions exit boys

    Football

    Former Southampton striker Mick Channon has criticised the players to have left the club during pre-season.

    The Saints have lost a host of key names and generated more than £90m in transfer revenue, with midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin and striker James Rodriguez both also likely to move to Tottenham.

    "Now the power has shifted from the club to the player as they will sit on their backsides at a big club for 20 games a season," says Channon, 65.

    "But they don't really care. There is a big pay packet on offer at a big club. Everyone knows there is no loyalty anymore in football."

    Football

    The power struggle at Blackpool continues this morning with chairman Karl Oyston issuing an open letter to shareholder Valeri Belokon and his representative Kaspars Varpins.

    In the lengthy piece, Oyston questions Belokon's commitment to Blackpool and stresses his own family's support for the club over a number of years.

    He ends by saying: "We have a position that is virtually unique in football. We are a debt-free, cash-rich club, unlike many of our competitors that will suffer the ravages of transfer embargo as early as January 2015, when they fall foul of the Financial Fair Play regulations.

    "Please be assured that the club is in the best possible hands as we are in this for the long term."

  63. Italian move for Crewe striker

    Football

    Crewe Alexandra striker Mathias Pogba is set to complete his switch to a Serie B club this week, reports BBC Radio Stoke.

    The Guinean international, who is into the final year of his contract, had his transfer request granted last week and a fee has been agreed.

  64. Sacked after one game

    Football

    You plot and plan all summer but get sacked after one game of the new campaign. The cut-throat scenario has been suffered by Emilio Ferrara who has been dismissed by Racing Genk.

    The Belgian side - champions three times in 15 years - lost their opening game away at KV Mechelen 3-1, a result which the club called "surprisingly bad".

    Ferrara was brought in to turn around fortunes last season.

    Ian Poulter appears to be fit to play in this week's Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

    The Englishman, 38, was bitten by a horse-fly over the weekend and has visited hospital several times to manage a heavily swollen arm.

    He tweets: "The IV drip with a different antibiotic has reduced the cellulites and redness in the arm so I'm on the way to the airport. Close call..."

    Luke Shaw

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is concerned over the fitness of new signing Luke Shaw.

    The 19-year-old, signed for £27m in June, is training on his own after returning from a summer break as his new manager says he "cannot perform" what he wants yet.

    "He needs to be fit and he is not very fit," the United boss says. "I have spoken with him and we have made the programme. He agreed with me."

    Football

    Blackpool also did some business late yesterday with a triple signing and now have a squad of 11 players for the new Championship season.

    Defender Peter Clarke, 32, signed a one-year deal after being released by Huddersfield while midfielders Jacob Mellis, 23, and Tomasz Cywka, 26, have joined from Barnsley on similar terms.

    Blackpool begin their season at Nottingham Forest on 9 August.

  74. Besic deal done

    Football

    Just as we were signing off on Sportsday yesterday, Everton announced the signing of Muhamed Besic on a five-year-deal.

    The 21-year-old midfielder played in all of Bosnia's matches at the World Cup. "He has been playing as a centre-half and as a defensive midfielder at an incredible level," said Blues boss Roberto Martinez.

    Besic's compatriot Edin Dzeko has taken to Twitter to welcome the former Ferencvaros midfielder. "Everton fans will love him," he tweets.

  76. Goals in pre-season

    Norwich City maintained their unbeaten run in pre-season with a 5-1 win over French top-flight side Nice.

    There were also plenty of goals on offer at Whitley Bay, where Scottish Premiership side St Mirren won 10-0.

  77. Van Gaal in no buying hurry

    Football

    Sir Alex Ferguson and Louis van Gaal

    Fellaini's manager at Manchester United - Louis van Gaal - says he will not rush into making new signings despite inheriting a "broken" squad.

    The 62-year-old says he is forced to use the 3-1-4-2 formation deployed in recent friendly games to incorporate a plethora of attacking options and that succeeding David Moyes as manager is a tougher challenge than following Sir Alex Ferguson.

    "When there is success you also have a very good squad," he says. "Now I have to follow and the squad was broken, I think. It is not in balance. It is more difficult to succeed in a difficult situation than a fantastic situation."

  78. Get involved

    #bbcsportsday

    Marouane Fellaini is the subject of much paper talk this morning as Napoli are reported to be keen on his signature.

    The Manchester United midfielder, signed for £27.5m in September 2013 by former manager David Moyes, has played just 21 times for the club.

    The Daily Express reports Fellaini has flown to Belgium to meet Napoli officials, so would his exit constitute the biggest flop signing in English football history?

  80. Southampton exits to continue

    Football

    From Scotland to the south coast of England and in particular Southampton, where an exodus of players for vast sums of money is in full swing.

    Midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin and striker Jay Rodriguez look set to be the latest to depart, with former manager Mauricio Pochettino closing in on their acquisition at Spurs.

    Talks are ongoing on the deal for the two 24-year-olds. Should they leave, it would take the Saints transfer income past the £100m mark this summer.

    The silver gong for the Blackheath and Bromley Harrier - as he sandwiched himself between Jamacian's Bailey-Cole and Nickel Ashmeade - also moves England closer to medal leaders Australia.

  82. Commonwealth Games

    Adam Gemili

    Adam Gemili justified his much-lauded potential at the Commonwealth Games with a brave performance to take silver behind Jamaica's Kemar Bailey-Cole in the men's 100m.

    The 20-year-old clocked 10.10 seconds to earn his first major medal.

    "It's not about times, it's about position," he said. "The times will eventually come. This is just a stepping-stone for the European Championships and then the Olympics in Rio."
