Swans close to strengthening squad

first_img One of those new faces looks set to be Birmingham winger Nathan Redmond. Swansea have met the Blues’ valuation with an offer which included defender Kyle Bartley as a makeweight, and it is understood the deal is close to being completed. Real Betis midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo is also expected to follow his team-mate Jose Canas to south Wales, with £2million-rated Espanyol defender Jordi Amat another Primera Division player on Laudrup’s radar. Laudrup had made it clear from the outset that his main target this summer was a striker, and Swansea have made offers of over £8million for Lyon and France striker Bafetimbi Gomis and Vitesse Arnhem’s Wilfried Bony, who is reportedly also attracting interest from Newcastle and Everton. Gomis’ wage demands could yet be a stumbling block, but should either of those deals be completed it would break Swansea’s record expenditure on a player; dwarfing the £5.55million paid for Pablo Hernandez last August. The Welsh club are also in talks with Villarreal as they look to bring Jonathan de Guzman back to the Liberty Stadium for a second season-long loan after the Holland international’s impressive form last term. One man Swansea have brought in, in an off-field capacity, is former fans’ favourite Lee Trundle. The ex-striker, who scored 91 goals in 194 appearances for the Swans, has been signed up as a club ambassador. The 36-year-old will work with the current squad on community and charity commitments, host match day hospitality and become part of the academy coaching set-up. Swansea have tabled bids for a number of transfer targets as they and manager Michael Laudrup look to move on from the disagreements that hampered the start of their summer. Press Associationcenter_img A falling-out between the club and Bayram Tutumlu – Laudrup’s agent – over transfer policy had seemed to throw the Dane’s future into doubt. Laudrup, who has worked with Tutumlu since his playing days with Barcelona, has made it clear he wants to stay at Swansea, despite the club refusing to work with his representative. It is understood that since that decision was made, real progress has been made in identifying the players needed to strengthen the Swans’ squad ahead of a season which will see them compete in the Europa League. Press Association Sport understands the signings of some of those players could be completed by the end of this week. last_img read more

Shane Long: Goal means nothing unless we qualify

first_img Press Association Keeper Shay Given has withdrawn with a knee problem and full-back Stephen Ward did not travel after his efforts on Thursday took their toll. But Poland too have issues, with dangerous frontman Arkadiusz Milik sidelined, although with Robert Lewandowski currently in the form of his life O’Neill is under few illusions as to how difficult his side’s task will be. He said: “He [Milik] being missing is obviously a blow to Poland. He’s a brilliant player, he really has been exceptional, particularly in the tournament. But I don’t think they are short of too of many ready-made replacements. “I’d say outside the very, very best players playing in the world, [Lionel] Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo, Lewandowski is in a bracket of a number of players that you would say is not far behind. It’s really brilliant when you have someone like that there to rely on. “He’s been exceptional for them and they are going to cause you plenty of problems. But we have to cope with that and try to come through.” Meanwhile, O’Neill insisted he knew nothing about reports that he will be offered a two-year contract extension as a reward for his efforts to date, although Press Association Sport understands that will be the case. He said: “No, I have nothing to say about it, the situation is exactly the same as before. Whatever reports have come out, it’s news to me.” Shane Long has warned the Republic of Ireland his heroics against Germany will count for nothing if they do not secure automatic qualification for Euro 2016 in Poland on Sunday evening. Ireland and the Poles will battle it out over 90 minutes at Warsaw’s Narodowy Stadium knowing that victory for either would secure a berth in France next summer, while a 0-0 draw would see the home side prevail and a high-scoring one the visitors. But Long, whose superb strike at the Aviva Stadium on Thursday evening stunned Group D leaders Germany and propelled the Republic firmly back into the race, is not about to settle for the play-off spot his side is already guaranteed. The Southampton striker said: “We had a big win the other night and we enjoyed it on Thursday night and we were talking about it on Friday, but since then, it’s just been focussing on this game. “They [Poland] got a good result against Scotland and they are going to be on a high as well, but you know, Germany was a great result, but we need to make it mean something and the only way it means something is if we qualify for the Euros.” The win against Germany means that Ireland can finish no lower than third in the group, but although the play-offs represent a safety net they would willingly have taken before kick-off on Thursday, the chance to go one better is too good to pass up. Long said: “It’s always nice to know, I suppose, going into the game that we have the play-offs, but after putting ourselves in this position, it would be a shame not to qualify. “You don’t know who you could get in the play-offs – it could be a tough game over two legs and anything can happen – so we’ll view this game tomorrow as our play-off. “If we win that, we’re at the Euros, so that’s our main goal. It would make the goal on Thursday a bit more meaningful if it helped us get to the Euros. “It was a great night, but we have got to focus on Poland now. As I said, we have got to make it mean something.” Long will hope his efforts against the Germans will give him a chance of starting at the Narodowy Stadium on a night when Seamus Coleman and Marc Wilson return to contention after injury and Glenn Whelan and James McClean from suspension. last_img read more

June 30, 2020 MLB-RACIAL INJUSTICE-MVP PLAQUES‘A dark past’: MVPs say time to pull Landis name off plaquesNEW YORK (AP) — As monuments, statues and memorials around the world come under increased scrutiny, some former Most Valuable Players in Major League Baseball are saying they’d like to see a change in future MVP plaques. The trophy is engraved with the name of Kenesaw Mountain Landis in large letters. Landis was baseball’s first commissioner and there were no Black players in the majors during his reign from 1920 until his death in 1944. His name has been on every American League and National League MVP plaque since then. Barry Larkin, Terry Pendleton and Mike Schmidt say they’d like to see it pulled off. The study conducted by Danish research firm RunRepeat in association with the Professional Footballers’ Association found 63% of praise regarding a player’s intelligence was aimed at those with lighter skin, while 63% of criticism for a player’s intelligence was aimed at those with darker skin tones. The study looked at 80 matches in the Premier League as well as the top divisions in Italy, Spain and France this season. The positive tests occurred on June 23, the first day all members of the team were tested as part of the NBA’s plan to restart the season, which was suspended in mid-March because of the pandemic.

(AP) — Memphis Grizzlies rookie guard Ja Morant posted and deleted an Instagram photo suggesting he’d replace his name with an expletive on his number 12 jersey in a protest against police. Morant then apologized, saying the post didn’t “accurately convey” what he wanted to share. Morant said he knows “there are good cops” out there.The league, Nike and the players association are reportedly working on a deal that would allow players to replace the names on the backs of their jerseys with social justice statements. The National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues, the minor league governing body, made the long-expected announcement. National Association president Pat O’Connor says the leagues “don’t have national TV revenues.” O’Conner estimated 85-90% of revenue was related to ticket money, concessions, parking and ballpark advertising. The minors drew 41.5 million fans last year for 176 teams in 15 leagues, averaging 4,044 fans per game.

Badgers prepare for heated Golden Eagle rivalry

first_imgFor the first time this year, the University of Wisconsin will have the opportunity to play a highly anticipated matchup at home, when in-state rival Marquette (6-2) visits Madison Saturday afternoon. Indeed, it will not only be the first “big” home game of the season, but for some of Wisconsin’s freshmen, it will be their first hyped-up Kohl Center contest ever.”The fans, they anticipate this game,” junior forward Alando Tucker said. “It seems like the Kohl Center is always a little louder in here when we are playing Marquette.””We know it is going to be a very important game,” sophomore guard Kammron Taylor said. “The game is definitely going to be intense. We just want to go out there and play our game. We don’t want to get caught up in the hype.”The past four games in the annual series have been won by the home team, a trend that bodes well for the Badgers (6-1). The fact that the game is being played on Wisconsin’s home court might be even more important this season however, as Marquette will bring several key freshmen into their first hostile road environment.Freshman guards Dominic James, Jerel McNeal and Wesley Matthews all will probably be in the Golden Eagles’ starting lineup on Saturday, the core of the Marquette youth movement.Although the trio has had their ups and downs so far this year, James has been the most impressive, leading the team in scoring with an average of 15 points per game and also in assists, dishing out 6.4 per contest.”He’s one of those guys who likes to get up and down the floor. He can catch, he can shoot, so we are going to have to contain him,” said Taylor, who will likely be matched up against James at times Saturday.If the games UW has played earlier this year against upstart shooters are any indication, James could be in for a long afternoon. When Wisconsin played Coastal Carolina, they held 2005 Freshman of the Year Jack Leasure to 2-for-16 shooting (1-for-10 from 3-point range). Pepperdine freshman Michael Gerrity only made four of his 13 shots, many of them in the closing minutes, and against UW-Green Bay Wednesday, heralded freshman Ryan Tillema was held scoreless, going 0-for-8 from the field.Although Wisconsin has fared well against inexperienced shooters this year, when going up against seasoned marksmen, the team hasn’t had the same amount of success. UW-GB’s Ryan Evanochko had his way against the UW defense early in the game and kept the Phoenix in the game with 22 points, while Badger fans will need little reminder of what Wake Forest senior Justin Gray did to the Wisconsin defense, tearing it apart for 37 points.The Badgers will look to do a better job against Marquette’s veteran swingman Steve Novak, who is averaging 14.3 points per game.”A Marquette team is always going to be intense. They are going to play hard-nosed, man-to-man defense, and they have some guys that can create,” Tucker said. “They have a good shooter in Novak and a bunch of guys that can create for him.”The Badgers can also expect a very spirited performance from Marquette, which seems to always save its best game for Wisconsin.”We probably bring out the best in them,” Taylor said.”They are going to try to throw some traps and press to try and get us to speed up our game, but we have to control the tempo,” Tucker said of the high-energy style of play he expects from the Golden Eagles. “We are here at home and we have to be able to control the tempo and get to the free-throw line early.”As if covering the talented Golden Eagles wasn’t difficult enough, Wisconsin will also have to battle their own emotions in the annual grudge match.”We can’t get too much of an emotional high out there,” Tucker said. “Guys are going to have to control their emotions.”Although emotions will surely be running high, the Badgers are still very thankful to have the game being played at home, where Wisconsin will look to build on its 61-3 record at the Kohl Center under Ryan.”Last year, you could probably count [exactly] the amount of fans we had at Marquette,” Taylor said. “But coming up this Saturday, we are going to see nothing but red and white out there.”last_img read more
