    BBC Sport

    Wayne Rooney's testimonial against Everton at Old Trafford in August raised more than £1.2m after operating costs. The money will be donated to his four chosen children's charities in the north-west.

    Rooney wants his Foundation to generate £5m in total.

    The England captain who will receive a 'contribution to football' award from the Football Writers' Association on Sunday, needs one goal to become Manchester United's record goalscorer, with 250.

  9. Berahino move to Stoke is close


    Pat Murphy

    BBC Midlands football reporter

    It looks as if the Saido Berahino saga could soon be over. Stoke City are now talking to the disaffected West Brom striker and I understand a deal is on the cards.

    It could net as much as £15m for West Brom, but it involves add-ons that would take a lot to achieve. The initial payment would be around £8m. The transfer could go ahead in the next 24 hours.

    If you were in charge of your club, what would you do on day one?

    John Louis: At Arsenal, I'd definitely prohibit taking selfies in the dressing room. Generally, the use of phones in the dressing room.

    Sam: If I were in charge of FIFA I'd put a financial cap on transfers and salary, football isn't all about money believe it or not.

    Matchday Memories: Sack Pulis and introduce football again slowly.

  17. Silva sorrow following Livermore loss

    Chelsea v Hull (Sunday, 16:30 GMT)

    Earlier today Hull - who are 18th in the top flight only one point above the bottom two clubs and go to leaders Chelsea on Sunday - lost midfielder Jake Livermore to West Brom and you get the impression it was rather out of Marco Silva's hands

     "If you asked me if I wanted to lose Jake, my answer is no," Silva said. "Of course he was a very important player for us and it's never good when you lose an important player."

    Confirmation that 25-year-old Norway international defender Omar Elabdellaoui has joined Premier League strugglers Hull on loan from Greek side Olympiacos for the remainder of the season.

    "We haven't been able to play with a natural right-back since I arrived here and so it is a position we needed to find a solution for."

    Hull manager Marco Silva told the club's official website. "Omar is a player I know and he has come here to help improve our squad."

    Brighton will go back to the top of the Championship table if they win at home against Sheffield Wednesday tonight.

    Centre-back Lewis Dunk is available for the Seagulls after a two-match suspension, while midfielder Dale Stephens is fit again after illness. Defender Sebastien Pocognoli has recovered from a thigh problem but left-back Gaetan Bong (knee) is out.
