  1. Bye for now

    Well that's it from us on Sportsday today. We're happy. Hope you're happy, too.

    But we never wave bye-bye here on the BBC Sport website.

    You can follow our Ballon d'Or live text here.

    Or if domestic football is more your game, then stay tuned for the FA Cup fourth round draw.

    Farewell.

    Eastleigh club captain Ben Strevens says "anyone in the top four would be brilliant" to draw in the FA Cup fourth round.

    National League Eastleigh, the lowest-ranked team left in the hat, came within three minutes of knocking out Championship club Bolton on Saturday only for Darren Pratley's equaliser to guarantee a replay.

    "We're hoping for a good side in the draw," midfielder Strevens told BBC Radio Solent. "A Premier League team away would be lovely."

    You can watch the fourth round draw from 19:15 on the One Show on BBC One or follow updates on the BBC Sport website.

    Women's Super League champions Chelsea Ladies have boosted their squad with the signing of midfielder Jade Bailey and goalkeeper Becky Spencer.

    Bailey, 20, arrives from Arsenal and Spencer, 24, from Birmingham City.

    "I want homegrown, English players who want to grow with us," Chelsea manager Emma Hayes told the club website.

  4. Generous Rams boost Hartlepool

    Football

    Hartlepool v Derby

    Derby County have allowed Hartlepool United to keep their share of the gate receipts for Saturday's FA Cup third-round tie.

    The Rams won 2-1 at Victoria Park, but their gesture will be worth about £23,000 to their League Two hosts.

  5. Wales head to 'Cannes of the North'

    Football

    Wales

    Wales will be based in Brittany at Euro 2016 this summer, with Chris Coleman's squad staying in the coastal resort of Dinard.

    It sounds pretty nice to be fair - Dinard is known as the 'Cannes of the North', with its beaches and mild climate making it a popular holiday destination.

    Gareth Bale and company will stay at the Novotel Thalassa Dinard, a spa resort which has hosted top European teams such as Paris St Germain and Bordeaux and will also be used by the France national team later this year.

    Right, Judith Chalmers impression over - back to the sport...

    Saido Berahino

    West Brom’s Saido Berahino looks like being a man in demand during the present transfer window.

    Berahino has not started for the Baggies since October and his goal against Bristol City on Saturday was his fourth of the campaign.

    Tottenham had four bids for the 22-year-old turned down in the summer and, along with Newcastle and Liverpool, have been linked with Berahino this month.

    BBC Sport understands there have been no formal moves for Berahino in January – yet. But that is likely to change.

  7. Bournemouth sign Grabban

    Football

    The man himself seems delighted to have rejoined his former club after limited opportunities this season at Norwich City.

  8. BreakingBournemouth sign Grabban

    Football

    Bournemouth have signed Norwich City striker Lewis Grabban for a fee believed to be around £7 million.

    Grabban, 27, has signed a three and a half year deal.

    He spent two seasons with the Cherries until 2014 when he left for the Canaries.

    The move follows the signing of striker Benik Afobe from Wolves.

    Leicester Tigers have signed South Africa wing JP Pietersen for next season.

    The 29-year-old, who currently plays in Japan for Wild Knights, was a member of the Springboks side that won the 2007 World Cup.

    "We have been looking to add world-class quality throughout the squad and JP is certainly in that class," said Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill. 

  10. Going nowhere

    Football

    Federico Marchetti

    Italy goalkeeper Federico Marchetti has extended his contract with Lazio until 2018, ending speculation about a move to Liverpool.

    Marchetti's contract had been due to expire at the end of the season and he had been linked with a move to Anfield.

    "A renewal that fills me with pride! Together until 2018!," Marchetti said on Twitter, after signing his contract extension.

    The 32-year-old joined Lazio in 2011 and helped them win the 2013 Coppa Italia.

  11. Carry on playing Totti

    Football

    Totti

    Veteran AS Roma forward Francesco Totti vowed to play on for another two years in a light-hearted birthday message to his former team mate Daniele Conti.

    Totti, 39, has spent his entire career at the Italian capital club while the 37-year-old Conti left Roma to join Cagliari in 1999.

    "You're getting old... I've heard that you're training to become a coach... I'm playing two more years, so if you want me to play (for you), I'm coming," Totti said.

    Totti made his Serie A debut in 1992 and became Roma captain in 1998. He has played 592 games in Italy's top flight, third on the all-time list behind AC Milan's Paolo Maldini (647) and Inter's Javier Zanetti (615).

    Wycombe midfielder Matt Bloomfield says boss Gareth Ainsworth inspired their FA Cup third-round draw with Aston Villa.

    Wycombe trailed 1-0 at half-time, but levelled to take it to a replay.

    "He said 'you're 1-0 down but right in this game - 1-0 isn't an easy scoreline for a team that hasn't won a game in as long as them'," revealed Bloomfield.

    "He said 'you're already winners to get the tie financially for the club - we were able to take his inspirational words and put them into action."

    What is it about Paris Saint-Germain and pop stars?

    Following the controversy over PSG considering whether to drop Phil Collins as their run-out music, the singer/rapper M.I.A. has revealed a dispute between herself and the club.

    The Ligue 1 leaders are unhappy that in her video for the track 'Borders' that denounces the treatment of refugees, she appears wearing a PSG shirt with the sponsor altered from 'Fly Emirates' to 'Fly Pirates'.

    M.I.A. has posted a lengthy letter from PSG dated 14 December 2015 on Twitter, in which the club ask her to cease broadcast of their image and seek compensation for the 'harm' caused.

    Cricket

    Jailed fraudster Allen Stanford says the embarrassment he caused English cricket chiefs "breaks his heart".

    The Texan has given his first interview since being indicted in 2009 for carrying out the second largest investment scam in US history - a crime for which he is serving a 110-year prison term.

    In 2008 the former billionaire signed a controversial agreement with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for a multi-million pound series of matches.

    BBC Sport's Dan Roan and Patrick Nathanson have an exclusive interview with Stanford that you can read here.

    League Two Oxford stunned Premier League Swansea in the FA Cup third round with a 3-2 home win on Sunday.

    "We're not a selling club, all the speculation is simply that," he told BBC Radio Oxford.
