    The 26-year-old had hoped to continue his career as an unbeaten professional in February, but has needed another operation to clear infected tissue.

    He will be sidelined for a further six to 12 months.

    "Theoretically I'm now left with two new Achilles and I've got to work on them and build them," the Lowestoft middleweight told BBC Radio Suffolk. "I can't wait to get back in the ring and start punching people."

    Evo-Stik League side FC United are preparing to take a pretty impressive away following to their FA Trophy quarter-final tie with Torquay United on Saturday.

    Roberto Martinez

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez has indicated new loan signing Aaron Lennon could be thrown straight into action in Saturday's Merseyside derby clash with Liverpool at Goodison Park.

    "We need to see where he is physically and his match fitness but he has been involved in 17 games in half of a season which is a good return," said Martinez.

    "He is a player that will look forward to these games and, from our point of view, it's the perfect baptism at our club - to go into a Merseyside derby is a really interesting start. It's not going to faze him."

  9. Joyce relishes World Cup chance


    Experienced batsmen Ed Joyce tells BBC Sport that Ireland's opening World Cup game against the West Indies will be key to their tournament campaign.

  11. Rossiter faces spell on sidelines


    Liverpool teenager Jordan Rossiter could face a "significant spell" on the sidelines after the 17-year-old midfielder injured his ankle during an FA Youth Cup tie with Birmingham on Friday.

    The Liverpool Echo reports that Rossiter has not broken his ankle, as was first feared, and a scan has revealed there is no fracture.

    "It's either ligament damage or a severe sprain but he's still facing a fair few weeks out," said Liverpool under-18s coach Neil Critchley.

  12. Money cautious ahead of replay


    Cambridge manager Richard Money

    Ahead of Tuesday night's FA Cup fourth-round replay at Manchester United, Cambridge United manager Richard Money says his side may have to accept that a moment of magic from the home side could prove the difference.

    "All you can prepare for is what will probably be the norm," Money told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire

    "What you can't prepare for is something special, something out of this world, something that any one of them can produce at any moment. If they do, it is very likely there is very little we can do about it."

  13. Tuesday's team news

    Manchester United v Cambridge United (FA Cup replay, 19:45 GMT)

  14. Ancelotti defends Bale


    Carlo Ancelotti and winger Gareth Bale

    Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti believes Welsh winger Gareth Bale is having a "fantastic season" and has called on his critics to relax.

    Bale has been questioned in the Spanish press in recent weeks for being too selfish but he has been defended by his manager.

    "Bale is doing everything to help the team. He did very well last year, scoring in all the finals we played," said the Italian on Tuesday. "He is having a fantastic season and we are at ease because he is playing well for the team.

    "I don't think I heard whistles (from the crowd) in the game against Real Sociedad. He had some great moves which the crowd appreciated."

    Rugby Union

  16. Right time to retire - Smith


    "Playing for England has been such an important part of my life for so long, but I feel now is the right time for me to retire from international football," said Smith.

    "I'm at a different stage in my life now, I am focusing on coaching and working my way up to get my licences and stay involved in football that way, along with playing for Arsenal.

    "Women's football has changed so much since I started playing and I am proud to have been a part of that. I'm pleased that I'll still be working in the game and with the FA in its activities moving forwards."

  17. 'Smith one of the greats'


    England head coach Mark Sampson has described Kelly Smith as one of the women's game's most iconic players.

    "Kelly will be remembered as one of the iconic players in the history of the women's international game," says Sampson of the 36-year-old striker.

    "The term 'world class' is often overused but when looking back over Kelly's international career she has consistently shown on the biggest stage she was without a doubt one of the greatest ever players.

    "Her legacy is not only on the field but off it. There are thousands of young girls who would count Kelly as their inspiration, as well as a number of our current senior squad would see Kelly as their role model. Her ability, combined with her determination to win, made her a fantastic role model for our current group of senior and youth players."

  18. Smith retires from England duty


    Kelly Smith

    England Women's leading goalscorer Kelly Smith has ended her international career.

    The 36-year-old forward won 117 caps and scored 46 goals in an England career that lasted almost 20 years.

    She made her debut in 1995 and has played in two World Cups and three European Championships, as well as for Team GB at the 2012 London Olympics.

    Smith, who has played professional football in the United States, will continue to play for Arsenal Ladies in the Women's Super League.

  21. Lennon happy with move to Everton


    Aaron Lennon

    Despite looking less than overjoyed in his earlier pictures (see 12:54 GMT), Aaron Lennon insists he is happy to have joined Everton on loan from Spurs until the end of the season.

    The 27-year-old winger, who has 21 England caps, had been linked with various clubs after being frozen out at White Hart Lane.

    "When I got the call from Everton, there wasn't really a choice, I just couldn't wait to get up here and I'm glad it was all sorted. Everything about Everton made me excited to join," he said.

    "I've always liked the club, the way the manager (Roberto Martinez) has got the team playing and the squad that they have - it was the most attractive to me and it was an easy decision for me."

    BBC Sport chief F1 writer

    McLaren finally made a breakthrough on the third day of pre-season testing in Jerez to put some mileage on their new car and Honda engine.

    However, Fernando Alonso's running was ended after 32 laps at close to racing speeds by an engine water leak with the double world champion saying the day had been a "big step forward".

    World champions Mercedes and Red Bull also suffered engine problems on a cold day that dried after starting damp, as Sauber's Felipe Nasr set the fastest time.

  23. McIlroy case to resume on Wednesday


    Golfer Rory McIlroy's court case against his former management agent in Dublin has been adjourned for the day and will resume at 11:00 GMT on Wednesday.

    The world's number one is suing Horizon Sports Management following a multi-million euros dispute over fees.

    The period under dispute coincided with McIlroy's sponsorship deal with Nike, said to be worth about $100m (£66m).

    The golfer complained that fees charged by Horizon were excessive. The Dublin firm is counter-suing for outstanding fees, alleging breaches of contract.

  24. Dougie Freedman press conference


    Nottingham Forest ambassador John McGovern on chief executive Paul Faulkner leaving soon after Stuart Pearce's sacking as manager: "Any major decision at the club has to be the chairman, so maybe he finds out [that Pearce has been sacked] after it's been made.

    "Fawaz Al Hasawi makes the final decision, that's the way it has to be. He owns the club, we've got to give him the respect to make the decisions."

    He also confirmed that Freedman has signed an 18-month contract with the Championship side, and that Pearce had turned down a new role within the club.

  25. West Ham could face FA Cup expulsion


    Diafra Sakho

    West Ham could face FA Cup expulsion if Fifa finds the club breached rules over the selection of striker Diafra Sakho.

    The 25-year-old withdrew from Senegal's Africa Cup of Nations squad with a back injury but scored 18 days later in West Ham's 1-0 FA Cup win at Bristol City.

    Fifa rules state a player cannot appear for his club if he is meant to be on international duty.

    The full England match-day squad will be revealed at 18:00 GMT, before the starting XV is confirmed on Wednesday.

  27. Dougie Freedman press conference


    "We have a fantastic squad with good depth. At the start of the season this group of players were flying high at the top of the table, so there's no reason that we can't get back up there," says Freedman.

    Freedman also confirmed that Lenny Lawrence, his assistant at Crystal Palace and Bolton, will be coming to the Championship club.

  28. Dougie Freedman press conference


    Dougie Freedman

    New Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman says: "What a fantastic opportunity for myself to coach at a wonderful club with great history. Any professional manager in the game would be delighted.

    "We've got to win games of football. We've got to make sure that's our key goal. We've got to put confidence back in the squad and make sure we're heading in the right direction."

    Jay: If Pearce gets teams going for 10 matches before players 'suss him out' (Mills, Jan 2015), he wouldn't be a bad choice for QPR

    Harry Partridge: This is this only good thing Harry's done at the club - should save a fortune in compensation now they don't need to sack him!

    Joey: 'Arry's leaving has been coming, and QPR could really do with a fresh manager. It's a solid squad so staying up is doable!

  30. Football


    BBC Radio 5 live

    Former QPR player and manager Ray Wilkins has been speaking on BBC Radio 5 live and says Harry Redknapp must have been in "a lot of discomfort" to resign.

    "When the transfer deadline comes to a close you're obviously wanting to bring a few players in. There may have been a slight situation there but for Harry to resign he must have been in a lot of discomfort," he said.

    "Loftus Road is a great place to work, it's run very well. Their home form has been ok, it's their away form which needs picking up and, unfortunately, they've not been able to get results away from home. You always need that odd away result."

    Asked who he wanted to replace Redknapp, Wilkins said: "They've got an abundance of quality in Glenn (Hoddle), Joe Jordan and Les Ferdinand."

  31. Redknapp resigns as QPR boss


    Gary Lineker

    Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker has tweeted his thoughts on Harry Redknapp's resignation. "Now we know why he wasn't seen leaning out of his car window yesterday," says the former England striker.

    Away from Harry Redknapp's departure, new Nottingham Forest manager Dougie Freedman will be giving his first media conference since succeeding Stuart Pearce at 15:30 GMT.

    You can listen to live coverage from the City Ground from BBC Radio Nottingham (not on mobile or tablet).

  34. QPR fans 'not surprised'

    BBC Radio 5 live

    Jeremy Gardner, a member of QPR's supporters' trust: "Let's face it, he hasn't looked happy in his job for quite some time and the results haven't been happening. The away record is just shocking.

    Yes, last season we did get promoted under Harry but the results in the last few months, particularly away, have been quite dreadful and we do have pretty good players in our squad.

    "What we want to see is someone who can motivate and get the best out of that squad. What I would say is I'm not surprised by the announcement. The club must know his days were numbered so I would expect that the club has someone in mind and we'll get them in post quickly."

  35. Redknapp stat attack


    Harry Redknapp

    QPR have won five league games this season, a record which would give anyone knee ache. Harry Redknapp's last game in charge was a 3-1 defeat by Stoke where Jonathan Walters punished QPR's poor defending.

  36. Redknapp resigns as QPR boss


    Premier League table

    As has already been reported, QPR had lost their opening 11 away Premier League games, but the west Londoners are not bottom of the table. They are slightly better placed than that - second bottom with 19 points from 23 games.

  37. Get involved #bbcsportsday

    UnSimpleSimon: Now we know why the relative transfer-silence at QPR. Worse, Hoddle isn't taking over. Might as well tell him to leave, too.

    London Falcons GFC: I don't think anyone is buying Harry's reason for resigning. He's obviously not happy with a lack of transfer funds to waste

    Jack Watson: Redknapp's resigned too late. He should have gone sooner allowing the new manager to bring his own players in

  38. 'Redknapp looked a beaten man'

    Phil McNulty

    BBC chief football

    Harry Redknapp

    "Harry Redknapp looked a beaten man as he explained QPR's failure to secure a selection of transfer deadline day targets such as Emmanuel Adebayor, Aaron Lennon and Matt Jarvis.

    "All this came just hours after what now seem increasingly significant tweets from QPR chairman Tony Fernandes, one starting with 'no more cheque book' and another declaring 'given the right motivation, tactics and coaching we can achieve much more'.

    "It hinted at Fernandes' worries and, with Redknapp also requiring major knee surgery, the perfect storm came together to end his latest managerial adventure.

    "The 67-year-old got QPR back into the Premier League but 11 straight away defeats hinted at the struggles he was having and no new faces only increased concerns.

    "Fernandes gave Redknapp a strident vote of confidence a fortnight ago - but now Redknapp has made that decision for him."

  39. Get involved #bbcsportsday

    SportsGar: Bit unfair of Harry to leave day after transfer window. No chance for new management team to bring anyone in.

    Tim Little: It's no coincidence that Redknapp's resignation comes a day after a disappointing #deadlineday for QPR.

  40. Redknapp resigns as QPR manager


    Harry Redknapp

    Harry Redknapp guided QPR back to the Premier League, but won just nine of 48 top-flight games as QPR boss. Indeed, his win percentage is the worst of any permanent QPR boss in the Premier League - lower than previous bosses Neil Warnock and Mark Hughes.

    And the west Londoners became the first team to lose their opening 11 away games of a top-flight season since Liverpool in 1953/54.

  41. Redknapp resigns as QPR manager


    Speaking on behalf of the QPR board, chairman Tony Fernandes added: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank Harry for everything he has done for the club during his time in charge.

    "We part on good terms and I would personally like to wish him all the best for the future."

  42. Redknapp resigns as QPR manager


    Harry Redknapp

    "I have had such a fantastic time at QPR," says Redknapp.

    "Sadly I need immediate surgery on my knee which is going to stop me from doing my job in the coming weeks. It means I won't be able to be out on the training pitch every day, and if I can't give 100% I feel it's better for someone else to take over the reins.

    "My relationship with Tony Fernandes has been one of the highlights of my footballing career and I wish the club every success. I am confident they will survive in the Premier League this year."

    QPR are currently second from bottom in the Premier League with 19 points.

  43. Redknapp resigns as QPR manager


    The 67-year-old, who is due to undergo knee replacement surgery in the coming weeks, tendered his resignation on Tuesday morning.

    He joined the club in November 2012 and has been in charge for 105 matches.

    Former player Les Ferdinand and Academy boss Chris Ramsey have been placed in temporary charge of the team until further notice.

    "It saddens me because I have been working since 1961 but it really saddens me because all golfers throughout Britain and Europe will miss the BBC," he told BBC Radio 5 live.

    "The R&A have always said they are the 'guardians of the game' and taking it north, south, east and west and looking after things.

    "I know they give a couple of thousand quid to some golf course that has been washed into the sea by the Atlantic Ocean and I know they do lots of lovely, lovely things but now when it comes down to the nitty-gritty they have dipped their hands into the money and that's it. I don't think there will be a golfer that won't be bitterly disappointed at the news today."

    "I'm willing to fight anyone. You're boxing for the world title so whoever it is, it's going to be hard. Finally my chance is here. I'm excited and I can't wait for it."

    The 27-year-old attacker had lined out for Newcastle's under-21 team at the beginning of the season and also played for Hull on loan.

  61. January's winners and losers?


    Wilfried Bony

    What was the best deal of the January transfer window? If you can't make up your mind, maybe our experts' views will help you.

    Former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Danny Murphy has gone for Wilfried Bony, who moved from Swansea to Manchester City.

    "He's a one-goal-in-two-games striker," says Murphy. "It gives City more firepower and eases the burden on Sergio Aguero. It might, just might, give them an extra boost as they go for the league title."

    It means James Degale, the mandatory challenger, will fight for the vacant belt on 25 April.

    Froch, who is currently out with an elbow injury, is now set to defend his WBA crown later this year.

  73. Get involved #bbcsportsday

    Robert Griffin: 7/10 for Villa: held on to Delph and Benteke, good early signs from Gil, but needed to reinforce defence.

    Lee Collingwood: 9/10 for Chelsea. Really excited for Cuadrado, but sad to see Schurrle leave.

    Romedo Meier: I'll go with a 7 for @MCFC. I think Bony is a great addition to the team, but still I think he's overpriced.

    Top marks or could do better? Today we're asking you to give your team marks out of 10 for their transfers in January. Tweet using the hashtag #bbcsportsday or visit BBC Sport's Facebook page.

  74. Say cheese?


    Aaron Lennon

    Just say cheese, Aaron? Ok then... Maybe Aaron Lennon has had some dental work done which stopped him from smiling for the camera after his move to Everton was confirmed. Unfortunately, toffees aren't so good for the pearly whites.

    If you missed the news, Everton have signed the winger on loan from Tottenham until the end of the Premier League season and the 27-year-old looks delighted to be on Merseyside.

  75. McCallum given seven-match ban

    McCallum has apologised on Twitter for his reaction, admitting he had been "very stupid and reckless".

  78. Hargreaves unimpressed with Hummels


    Manchester United failed to secure Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels in the January transfer window but the Old Trafford remain interested in signing him this summer.

  82. Get involved

    Today we're asking you to give your club marks out of 10 for their dealings in January and reasons for your marks. Tweet using the hashtag #bbcsportsday - or visit BBC Sport's Facebook page.

    Mat Freshney: Nottingham Forest 0. Couldn't even keep the manager!

    Glen Birdy Birdsall: Got to give Man United an 8 just because they never spent a penny & got a top goalkeeper. It would have been a 10 had they got a defender but it's on money spent so can't be bad and we offloaded a few and trimmed the wage bill.

    Jamie Last: Leicester - 3. Needed proven quality to get out of this mess and didn't deliver. Now relying on a young, untested Croatian striker to get us out of this. Pretty much sealed relegation in my opinion.

  83. Gray 'never wanted Birmingham exit'


    Birmingham City say they were never worried about losing prized asset Demarai Gray on deadline day despite receiving five bids from Bournemouth, rising to £5m, during the transfer window.

    The 18-year-old winger was named Football League Young Player of the Month in December and became the third youngest player to score a hat-trick for the club in the 6-1 win over Reading.

    "It is well documented that we received several offers," said a club statement. "But Demarai has never once given any indication that he wanted to leave."

  84. Lennon wants intimidating atmosphere


    Bolton manager Neil Lennon

    Bolton manager Neil Lennon says he wants the Macron Stadium to be as loud as possible for Wednesday night's FA Cup replay against Liverpool.

    "We want the stadium to be bouncing tomorrow," he said. "We want it to be as intimidating for Liverpool as possible," he told his pre-match news conference.

    "The first goal is always important in these games. I wouldn't say we are confident but we are really looking forward to it."

    But Lennon revealed that Wanderers will be without midfielder Darren Pratley, who has been ruled out for between six and eight weeks after tearing a hamstring against Wolves last weekend.

  85. Valdes loves the sea


    Dylan Thomas

    Did you know Victor Valdes' love of the ocean prompted the Manchester United goalkeeper to give his first-born child the Welsh name Dylan, which translates as 'great tide'. It's true. Once you've composed yourself, you can read more unusual facts about some transfer window signings on this website.

  86. 'We've got good news and bad news...'


    Andy Kellett

    "Sit down Andy," said Bolton first team coach Garry Parker. "We've got some good news and some bad news."

    What a day Monday was for Andy Kellett, who was expecting to rejoin Plymouth Argyle only to discover he would be heading to Manchester United on loan.

    The full-back decided to hear the bad news first, report The Bolton News, before being told he was going to Old Trafford.

    "It's a great opportunity for Andy," added manager Neil Lennon on Tuesday. "We called about Saidy [Janko] and Manchester United asked for Andy to go the other way. He thought it was a wind-up."

  87. Korean teenager lined up for shock Spanish move


    Tuesday's Marca newspaper

    The transfer deadline may be closed but Spanish newspaper Marca reports that there could be another deal on the horizon but one which would catch the eye.

    The 27-year-old midfielder has had a minor operation on a thumb problem and will miss the game at Craven Cottage, although his absence is expected to be brief.

    Johnson told the Sunderland Echo: "I just have to get it done. It's not a serious thing, but I need the wound to heal. It's the risk of infection that's keeping me out. It's the best time to do it with the games coming up, though."

  89. Deadline day gets world interacting...

  90. Cahill reveals Kenwright & Moyes talks


    Tim Cahill

    Tim Cahill has revealed he was in contact with both Everton chairman Bill Kenwright and ex-manager David Moyes on deadline day before opting for a move to China.

    MLS outfit the New York Red Bulls announced on Monday the former Everton stalwart was leaving them by mutual consent, which started rumours he could complete a surprise return to Merseyside but he has instead opted for Shanghai Shenhua.

    "Basically I spent most of the morning on the phone to the boys," he told Fox Sports. "I spoke to [former NY team-mate] Thierry Henry via text and Bill Kenwright at Everton and Ange Postecoglou. Spoke to Moyes about possibly going to La Liga.

    Matthew Goss: Great to see Chelsea finally doing good business as well as getting better players in, credit to the club, Jose and Abram

    Rich Dobbs: Arsenal - 5/10 Centre back in and another young kid. Could have done with a proven central defensive midfielder and a big name centre-back like Hummells.

  92. New Zealand continue good form


    Kane Williamson

    New Zealand beat Pakistan by 119 runs in Napier in their final limited-overs international before the Cricket World Cup, to compete a 2-0 series win.

    Kane Williamson made 112 from 88 balls and Ross Taylor an unbeaten 102 from 70 deliveries after New Zealand won the toss and compiled 369-5, their highest total against Pakistan.

  100. Gold tells Hammers to stay strong


    David Gold tweet

    West Ham co-chairman David Gold got Hammers fans salivating in anticipation of some late deadline-day action by tweeting the following message at 10pm: "Don't go to bed."

    But after the window shut Gold posted another message and dozy-eyed West Ham fans went to bed disappointed.

    "Sorry for keeping you up late but at the last moment the main deal collapsed and the rest folded like a pack of cards. Stay strong," he tweeted. "No matter how hard you tried there are people out there that you just can't do business with."

    Image caption: Mendes oversaw Ronaldo's move from Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United for £12.24m in 2003

    You can watch BBC sports editor Dan Roan's interview with Jorge Mendes on this website. The Portuguese says people have the "wrong idea" about football agents and defends the amount of money in the game.

    Mendes, who is reported to have brokered more than £1bn worth of transfers, has been described as the most powerful figure in the game.

    He described football as the "most important sport in the world" and defended players' wages, saying they "deserve the maximum possible".

  108. 'Clubs would pay ate least £300m for Ronaldo'


    Cristiano Ronaldo

    One player who will never be involved in another transfer is Cristiano Ronaldo, according to his agent Jorge Mendes.

    But should Real Madrid decide to let him leave tomorrow, the Portugal captain would sell for £300m says Mendes.

    Asked how much he was worth, Mendes said: "Cristano Ronaldo? One billion. His buyout clause one billion, so it is one billion. It is impossible to buy someone like him. If for any reason the club decide to sell him tomorrow for £300 million, someone will pay."

    But asked if Ronaldo will finish his career at Real, Mendes said "for sure". "He will not leave Real Madrid," he added.

    Andre Schurrle

    Despite January's motto being 'spend, spend, spend' it is possible to make a profit, as Chelsea have proven. By letting Andre Schurrle go to Wolfsburg and Ryan Bertrand to Southampton the Blues are in the black this month, despite signing winger Juan Cuadrado.

    If you've lost track of who went were on deadline day, you can find all the confirmed deals on our website.

    The Daily Express focuses on Wilfried Zaha's return to Crystal Palace, saying the winger cost Manchester United £400,000 for every minute he played for the club.

  112. January's biggest deals

    Juan Cuadrado

    Chelsea's £23.3m signing of winger Juan Cuadrado was the biggest deal completed on transfer deadline day, but Manchester City's acquisition of Wilfried Bony for £28m was the month's most expensive signing.

    Crystal Palace were the busiest top-flight club on deadline day, signing four players including Wilfried Zaha - but there were more comings and goings at Crawley Town last month than anywhere else, with the club signing nine players. Nine!

  113. Premier League clubs spend big


    Graphic showing Premier League spending in January over the last 10 years

    A cool £130m was spent by Premier League clubs in the January window, which matches last year's figure. That amount is short of the record £225m frittered away in 2011, though - but way more than the £30m shelled out in 2010. While we write out the next entry, why not have a look at a nice graphic we've prepared on Premier League clubs' January spending since 2006.
