  2. Wolves waiting

    BBC Sport

    It has been a quiet transfer window for Wolves so far, with Roman Saiss leaving and no-one coming in.

    It is expected Joao Moutinho will sign a new deal but the big talk is around Ruben Neves.

    At the start of the summer, it seemed he was certain to leave. Not it is not so sure.

    The future of Adama Traore is up for debate as well.

    I suspect far more will be known about Bruno Lage's summer plans at this point next week.

  3. Euro 2022: England winger Lauren Hemp 'itching to get going' for hosts

    Lauren Hemp

    England winger Lauren Hemp says she is "itching to get going" as she prepares for the Women's Euro 2022 Championship.

    The Lionesses kick off the tournament, which is being held in England, against Austria at Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium on Wednesday, 6 July.

    Hemp, 21, plays for Manchester City and has been highlighted as one of the players to watch in the competition.

    "I have had experience with the Under-20s but this is going to be on a 10 times bigger scale," she said.

  5. PFA launches plan to address 'absence of visible diverse role models' in women's football

    The best female footballers in Europe are about to compete in Euro 2022, but the "absence of visible role models from ethnically diverse backgrounds" in England's team for their home tournament "has never been more apparent".

    That's the verdict of the Professional Footballers' Association as it launches an initiative to address the lack of ethnic diversity in women's football.

    The 'See It Achieve It' campaign will be led by former Brighton defender Fern Whelan, who joined the PFA in 2021 as the organisation's first women's football equality, diversity and inclusion executive.

    "I really wanted a platform where the players from the Women's Super League from diverse backgrounds could just be celebrated, and to share their inspiring stories," Whelan tells BBC Sport.

  7. Get Involved - Richarlison reaction

    SMS Message: People seem to be forgetting the number of games Spurs will be playing next season. Plenty of games for Richarlison to show himself, plus his versatility to be part of a front 3 or front 2 if they want to play a midfield 3. Back in Jan Conte had Kane and Lucas upfront which didn't work, feels unlikely to see that again! from Anon

  9. 'We have to sell a top player at some point'

    Moussa Diaby

    Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Simon Rolfes has left the door open for the eventual exit of Newcastle target Moussa Diaby.

    Rolfes told Sky Germany: "I'm optimistic about Moussa that he’ll play here next season. But when clubs with incredibly large financial opportunities bid for such a player, we have to sell a top player at some point."

  10. Get Involved - Bosman memories

    Peter: Pre-Bosman, but a similar ruling. Liam Brady to Juventus for something like £600k. That one hurt.

  11. Everton: Leeds and Burnley drop threat of legal action about club's finances

    Dominic Calvert Lewis

    Leeds and Burnley have dropped the threat of legal action against Everton and the Premier League over the Toffees' finances.

    Everton have posted £372m losses over three years, which is above the Premier League allowance of £105m.

    That figure also included £170m losses attributed to Covid-19, which can be written off, although the scale of those losses also caused surprise.

    But Everton have always indicated they were confident they had complied with financial rules, and have been working with the Premier League.

    Full story.

  12. Everton hold talks with Lingard

    Everton have held talks with England midfielder Jesse Lingard. The 29-year-old is a free agent after his Manchester United contract expired at the end of June.

    But he has also drawn interest from West Ham, where he had a successful loan spell during the 2020-21 season.

    Everton boss Frank Lampard is keen to sign players before the club's pre-season trip to the United States later this month.

    And he will have money to spend after the club sold Brazilian forward Richarlison to Tottenham for £55m.

    Lingard fell out of favour at Manchester United last season and said he felt let down by his treatment at a club where he graduated to the first team via the club's academy.

    West Ham have twice tried to sign the England international on a permanent basis, while Newcastle have also been interested.

    Lingard has 32 England caps, and last played for his country in the World Cup qualifier win over Andorra last October.

    Everton are also interested in Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks, but it is understood the 26-year-old is one of several options the club are looking at.

    Former Burnley defender James Tarkowski is expected to complete a move to Everton after also becoming a free agent.

  13. Get Involved - Bosman memories

    Nick Rodely: Zlatan Ibrahimovic signing for Man United on a free was a great signing. It may have been brief but in the one full season he had with us, he played a huge part in our League Cup/Europa League double. Speaking of Bosmans, get Eriksen in ASAP!

  14. FA Cup prize money ranges from £2m to £375

    BBC Sport

    The Football Association has released details of the entries and prize money for next season's FA Cup.

    The extra-preliminary round draw, that features Robbie Savage's Macclesfield amongst others, takes place next Friday, 8 July.

    Losers at that stage get the sum of £375 in prize money.

    I don't think any of the clubs entering at that stage need to be too concerned about the £2m on offer to the winners.

    Harvey Hancock: Has nobody mentioned Sol Campbell to Arsenal from arch rivals Spurs? Arsene Wenger could hardly hide his grin when the signing was announced.

  16. Get Involved - Richarlison reaction

    #bbcfootball or text 81111 (UK only, standard message rates apply)

    Shamim Rahman: People commenting on Richarlison not getting game time at Spurs probably don’t say that about City, Liverpool or Chelsea who have incredible subs benches. With fixtures more compressed due to the World Cup and 4 competitions for Spurs this year, this signing is ideal.

  17. Dean to become a dedicated Premier League VAR

    Mike Dean

    High-profile referee Mike Dean is to become a dedicated Premier League VAR.

    Dean retired as an on-field official after 22 years at the end of last season.

    The 54-year-old will now join Lee Mason as a dedicated VAR as PGMOL look to make the best use of their most experienced officials.

  18. Phillips in Man City medical

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    England midfielder Kalvin Phillips is due to have his medical at Manchester City today.

    City agreed a £45m deal with Leeds for Phillips last week.

    Pep Guardiola’s men are not due to return to pre-season training for another 10 days but City are keen to get everything done with the transfer well in advance.

    Although he was born in the city and is a lifelong fan, it was always felt at Elland Road that Phillips would want to take up the option of joining a club that competed for major trophies and it is understood the deal was concluded relatively quickly.

    Phillips’ arrival as competition for Rodri comes following the exit of skipper Fernandinho.

    However, it will also place question marks over the future of Germany international Ilkay Gundogan, who only has a year left on his present deal.
