Bournemouth to make signing official in ‘next few hours’, about to…

first_imgOn August 2nd, we carried a report from Super Deporte, who claimed Levante have rejected AFC Bournemouth’s €30m offer, which has no bonuses and no percentage of a future transfer fee, for Jefferson Lerma. A day later, El Desmarque reported the Colombian international’s move to the Vitality Stadium was back on because FC Zürich’s Raphael Dwamena was close to joining the Spanish club, which would then allow the 23-year-old to make a switch to the Premier League.Today’s edition of Spanish newspaper AS claims Lerma started to say goodbye to his current teammates after a friendly on Saturday and he’s expected to join the Cherries quickl.The report claims, unless there are any last minute changes, Bournemouth will make his signing official in the ‘next few hours’. It will cost them €30m and Levante will invest the funds they wlill receive from their player’s sale in signing Dwamena and Moses Simon.After seeing multiple bids turned down by the La Liga outfit, the English club will finally be able to secure Lerma’s services.Marca back the claims up, saying in their Sunday edition that Lerma is about to depart for England.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.

Marcelo Bielsa has personally telephoned target – Wants Leeds United to…

first_imgWith a contract expiring at the end of the season, Tuttosport state Poveda hasn’t managed to impress Pep Guardiola enough and therefore City won’t be offering an extension. That would increase the possibility of them letting him leave for nothing this month.Poveda is said to be very interested in signing for Torino, and negotiations are ongoing to try and reach an agreement over the next few days, however, the competition from Leeds United and Celtic remains.As Tuttosport have it, Marcelo Bielsa has personally telephoned the 19 year old and wants to convince the youngster that signing for Leeds would be the best choice for his building career.Promotion to the Premier League is in grasp for Bielsa’s side this season, which is another carrot to dangle in front of the attacking midfielder.Manchester City, despite not wanting to keep the player, have been searching for ‘friendly destinations’ for him, perhaps suggesting they’d allow a free transfer if there’s a clause regarding the player’s future.Given Guardiola is a big Bielsa fan, that could be helpful.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoCNN with DBS BankThe New Role Banks Are PlayingCNN with DBS BankUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

From the refugee camp to the European throne; Life of…

first_imgThe day the civil war broke out in the African country of Liberia. A Liberian couple, Debah Davis and Victoria Davis, gave birth to a baby boy in a refugee camp in Ghana. Until the age of five, he grew up starving in a refugee camp. Then, as luck would have it, he immigrated to Canada with his parents. It was also his coronation, having grown up in a refugee camp, when Bayern Munich became the kings of Europe, breaking the PSG last night more than fourteen years ago. The coronation of Alfonso Davis, who leaps from the left defense and delivers the ball to the penalty box to score for Lavandoski and Mുള്ളller.Arriving in Canada at the age of five, Alfonso Davis began training at a free football camp for the financially disadvantaged. Alfonso Davis’ only passion was football. Alfonso was isolated on the field as he did not speak English. Overall own good speed and ball handling. He jumped and scored and scored. At the age of 14, he signed a professional contract with Whitecapes FC. He also holds the record for the youngest player in the United Soccer League in the United States.The following year, the biggest clubs in Europe lined up for Alfonso Davis. Bayern Munich beat Alfonso to overtake Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool. The first Canadian to play for a German club, the first Canadian to win the Bundesliga title and the first Canadian to win the Champions League. Alfonso Davis’ gifts to Canada, which welcomed refugee immigrants with open arms.The world saw Alfonso Davison’s excellence in the Champions League quarter – final against Barcelona when he jumped from the left wing and threw the ball to Joshua Kimmich. Alfonso Davis, 19, is the perfect boy in modern football, combining speed, dribbling and crossing. For someone who has overcome hunger, war and immigration all his life, the defense of his opponents on the field may not seem like a challenge.last_img read more

McClain cleared to return to practice after 10-month absence

first_img(This blog brought to you by Atlantic Remodeling. Visit www.atlanticremodeling.com to learn about their Red Cent Guarantee!)OWINGS MILLS, Md. — More than 10 months after suffering a spinal cord contusion that threatened his football future, inside linebacker Jameel McClain returned to practice on Wednesday as the Ravens continued preparations for the Pittsburgh Steelers.McClain remains on the reserve physically unable to perform list for now, but his return to the practice field triggered the start of a 21-day window in which the sixth-year linebacker may practice. Though he may return prior to the end of the three-week period, McClain must be added to the active roster at the end of the window or placed on season-ending injured reserve.Coach John Harbaugh confirmed that McClain has been cleared to return to the football field after recovering from a spinal cord injury suffered against the Washington Redskins on Dec. 9 of last season, but no decision has been made on his status against Pittsburgh on Sunday. The Ravens have their bye in Week 8, making it plausible that they would ease McClain back into practices this week with the thought of activating him after the bye.“We’re going to practice Jameel McClain today,” Harbaugh said prior to practice. “He’s eligible to do that. We do not know what that means for this week, next week, or the week after. We do know that it means within three weeks that we’ve got to make a decision about whether we’d put him on the 53-man roster. We’ll just have to see how it goes with that.”How McClain will fit within the defense remains to be seen as inside linebacker Daryl Smith has been arguably the biggest surprise of the season and has handled making the calls in the defensive huddle admirably through the first six weeks of the season. Having made 45 starts in his NFL career, McClain could potentially unseat Josh Bynes at the weakside inside linebacker spot, a position he played next to the retired Ray Lewis in past seasons.For now, McClain is pleased to prove doubters wrong about his ability to return to football and will work to get himself back into football shape after continuing to work out and attend meetings at the team’s Owings Mills facility since he was injured late last season. The Syracuse product and Philadelphia native feels he’s ready to play right away but acknowledged that the coaches and training staff will ultimately decide when he returns to game action.However, the itch is there for McClain to return to action with his injury fully healed.“You understand the feeling of watching people play day in and day out,” said McClain, who admitted using his doubters as motivation to keep working hard as his spinal cord healed. “Getting to see my teammates put their pads on and go out and do work while I had to stand around and watch, it’s no doubt that I’m itching. I’m preparing myself mentally and especially physically coming into this game.”Cody returns to practice; Bynes, Canty sidelinedIn addition to McClain, defensive tackle Terrence Cody returned to the practice field on Wednesday for the first time since injuring his knee in the first quarter of the Ravens’ win over the Houston Texans on Sept. 22.Cody has missed three straight games but practiced on a limited basis after telling reporters last week that he was moving closer to a return to action. Rookie Brandon Williams has taken Cody’s place in several defensive sub packages, which will make for an interesting competition for reps between the first-year player and Cody, who is scheduled to become a free agent after the season.Inside linebackers Josh Bynes and Albert McClellan and defensive end Chris Canty (thigh) were absent from Wednesday’s practice, making McClain’s return a welcome sight for a lighter group of inside linebackers. While McClellan has missed the last two weeks of practice — though he’s played in each of the last two games — Harbaugh revealed that Bynes is dealing with a finger injury.“Josh Bynes has an infection in his finger, which he cut a couple of weeks ago,” Harbaugh said. “He was actually in the hospital last night with it. He got good news. It’s good — it’s clearing up.”Canty was present and dressed out to work during the portion of practice open to the media before being listed as a non-participant, perhaps indicating a day of rest for the veteran defensive lineman.Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (hip and elbow) was practicing after straining his elbow in the first half of Sunday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers.Wednesday’s injury reportBALTIMOREDID NOT PARTICIPATE: LB Josh Bynes (thigh, finger), DE Chris Canty (thigh), LB Albert McClellan (shoulder)LIMITED PARTICIPATION: CB Chykie Brown (thigh), DT Terrence Cody (knee), C Ryan Jensen (foot), DT Haloti Ngata (elbow), LB Courtney Upshaw (foot), CB Lardarius Webb (thigh)FULL PARTICIPATION: LB Jameel McClain (neck), DT Marcus Spears (knee), WR Brandon Stokley (thigh)PITTSBURGHOUT: WR Markus Wheaton (finger)DID NOT PARTICIPATE: LB Jarvis Jones (head)LIMITED PARTICIPATION: T Marcus Gilbert (quad), DE Brett Keisel (abdomen), TE Heath Miller (non-injury related), LB LaMarr Woodley (knee)last_img read more

Sizing up the post-minicamp 2016 Ravens roster

first_imgWith mandatory minicamp behind them and training camp several weeks away, the Ravens turn their attention toward the preseason and eventually trimming the current offseason roster down to 53 by the start of the regular season.Little should be taken away from voluntary organized team activities and three mandatory practices — conducted without live contact — but my still-too-early look at the roster suggests as many as 43 players would be considered locks if the deadline to trim the roster took place in late June. My rough assessment of the 89 players currently on the roster lists 26 on the bubble. Not all bubble players are on equal footing, of course, with some positions lacking quality depth and others enjoying an abundance of talent.Though general manager Ozzie Newsome, coach John Harbaugh, and the rest of the coaching staff and front office pay attention to the numbers at each position, trying to pinpoint a specific number of wide receivers or cornerbacks or linebackers isn’t the most accurate way of projecting the roster. The Ravens are looking for reserves who can excel on special teams in addition to their designated position, so they will look carefully at players’ other abilities and overall athleticism in addition to what they bring to their specific position when filling out the bottom of the roster.Of course, this breakdown could change at any point and certainly by the first day of training camp if any individuals report to Owings Mills in poor physical condition or have not done the necessary mental preparation for the summer.The numbers in parentheses indicate the total number of players currently on the roster at that given position. As we move into the preseason, I’ll provide updated looks as well as projections of who’s in and who’s out during the different stages of the summer.QUARTERBACKS (4)LOCK: Joe Flacco, Ryan MallettBUBBLE: NoneLONG SHOT: Josh Johnson, Jerrod Johnson Skinny: Mallett has his moments impressing you with his strong throwing arm, but he also made too many ill-advised plays this spring. Needless to say, the Ravens have to be happy that Flacco is on track to be on the field for the first day of training camp.RUNNING BACKS & FULLBACKS (7)LOCK: Justin Forsett, Kyle Juszczyk, Buck Allen, Kenneth DixonBUBBLE: Terrance West, Lorenzo TaliaferroLONG SHOT: Trent Richardson Skinny: There is plenty of NFL-caliber talent in this group of tailbacks, but the question is whether there is a legitimate No. 1 option to stand out from the rest. Richardson is a nice comeback story, but hamstring and knee injuries clearly have him lagging behind the rest of the group.WIDE RECEIVERS (10)LOCK: Steve Smith, Kamar Aiken, Breshad Perriman, Mike Wallace, Chris MooreBUBBLE: Michael Campanaro, Jeremy Butler, Keenan Reynolds, Chris Matthews, Kaelin ClayLONG SHOT: None Skinny: This group lacks clarity with the current status of Smith and Perriman, but the competition for what figures to be one or two spots among these bubble receivers will be fascinating. Reynolds has plenty of fans in his corner, but don’t sleep on Clay as a return specialist after a good spring.TIGHT ENDS (7)LOCK: Benjamin Watson, Crockett Gillmore, Maxx WilliamsBUBBLE: Dennis Pitta, Darren WallerLONG SHOT: Daniel BrownSUSPENDED: Nick Boyle Skinny: Pitta being listed on the bubble player has more to do with his health and how he’ll respond to live contact this summer than his playing ability. Waller winning a roster spot won’t be easy, but his versatility to also play receiver and his special-teams ability shouldn’t count him out.OFFENSIVE LINEMEN (15)LOCK: Marshal Yanda, Ronnie Stanley, Rick Wagner, Jeremy Zuttah, John Urschel, Alex Lewis, Ryan JensenBUBBLE: James Hurst, De’Ondre Wesley, Vladimir DucasseLONG SHOT: Anthony Fabiano, Matt Skura, Jarell Broxton, Blaine Clausell, Stephane Newbot Skinny: The early reviews for Stanley have been positive, but it’s fair to be concerned about the tackle depth following Eugene Monroe’s release. Lewis primarily worked at guard this spring, but he could unseat Hurst as the team’s swing tackle or the Ravens could add a veteran to the mix.DEFENSIVE LINEMEN (10)LOCK: Brandon Williams, Timmy Jernigan, Lawrence Guy, Carl Davis, Bronson Kaufusi, Willie HenryBUBBLE: Brent Urban, Kapron Lewis-MooreLONG SHOT: Trevon Coley, Michael Pierce Skinny: The Ravens are loaded along the defensive line, so it will be interesting to see how many of these young players they will ultimately keep. Urban is more than likely on the good side of the bubble, but he needs to stay healthy and show more than he did in his first NFL action late last season.INSIDE LINEBACKERS (6)LOCK: C.J. Mosley, Zachary Orr, Albert McClellanBUBBLE: Arthur BrownLONG SHOT: Cavellis Luckett, Patrick Onwuasor Skinny: There may not be a more interesting competition in camp than this one as the Ravens have chosen to this point not to add a veteran to replace Daryl Smith. Orr appears to be the favorite to start next to Mosley, but Baltimore has experimented with moving second-rounder Kamalei Correa inside.OUTSIDE LINEBACKERS (9)LOCK: Terrell Suggs, Elvis Dumervil, Za’Darius Smith, Kamalei CorreaBUBBLE: Matt Judon, Victor Ochi, Chris CarterLONG SHOT: Brennen Beyer, Mario Ojemudia Skinny: The Ravens have numbers here, but what can they really expect from Suggs, who is still working his way back from last September’s Achilles tendon injury? Judon and Ochi are green players, but they provide upside as potential situational pass-rushing options.CORNERBACKS (10)LOCK: Jimmy Smith, Shareece Wright, Jerraud Powers, Tavon YoungBUBBLE: Will Davis, Sheldon Price, Maurice Canady, Kyle ArringtonLONG SHOT: Julian WilsonINJURED RESERVE: Jumal Rolle Skinny: New secondary coach Leslie Frazier has several slot cornerbacks, but outside depth is thin behind Smith and Wright with Davis coming back from a serious knee injury and Sheldon Price lacking experience. The veteran Arrington took a pay cut this offseason and is firmly on the bubble.SAFETIES (7)LOCK: Eric Weddle, Lardarius WebbBUBBLE: Kendrick Lewis, Terrence Brooks, Matt Elam, Anthony LevineLONG SHOT: Sam BrownSkinny: The Ravens are committed to Weddle and Webb as their starting safeties, but what happens after that is anyone’s guess. It’s possible that all four of these “bubble” safeties could make the roster, but there isn’t much separation among them at this point.SPECIALISTS (4)LOCK: Sam Koch, Morgan Cox, Justin TuckerBUBBLE: NoneLONG SHOT: Wil Lutz Skinny: With Koch and Cox signing long-term deals in the last calendar year and Tucker receiving the franchise tag this offseason, the Ravens are set at these spots with Lutz expected to merely share some practice reps this summer.last_img read more

NPFL Super Six: Defiant Okagbue Refuses To Concede Hope Despite Suffering Two Consecutive Losses…

first_imgDespite suffering a second consecutive loss in the 2018/2019 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Championship Playoffs, a defiant Uche Okagbue, head coach of FC Ifeanyiubah has refused to give up hope of winning the title.The Anambra Warriors lost 2-1 to Akwa United on Thursday at the Agege Township Stadium despite taking the lead through Emmanuel Ugwuka in the 33rd minute. Akwa turned things around in the second half with Cyril Olisema notching a brace for the Promise Keepers.FC Ifeanyiubah confounded expectations to qualify for the post-season playoffs from Group B ahead of more fancied sides but they lost their opening fixture at the Super Six 3-1 to Lobi Stars and Okagbue put the latest defeat to Akwa United down to the inexperience of his side which he had to build virtually from scratch before the start of the season.”It’s inexperience,” Okagbue said about his side’s defeat. “You can see it from the way they’re playing because if you watch, the whole players of Ifeanyiubah left the team so we picked these players from nowhere, from the amateur league and we started grooming them to this stage.“And when we started the league, nobody gave this team a chance that we’ll get to the Super Six but we got there and everyone who has come to watch this team will see that we got to the Super Six on merit but unfortunately our boys were not experienced enough to carry on.”He, however, expressed satisfaction with his players’ effort although he refused to concede that they lost to a better side, only saying that Akwa United were “lucky” to have gotten the win.“It was a nice match the two teams played I think I’m satisfied with the play of my boys even though we lost, they gave a good account of themselves.“I won’t say I lost to a better side; I can’t say that. They were just lucky that’s what I would say because if you watched the match from the first half, we threw away almost five glaring chances [to score].”Two defeats on the bounce notwithstanding, Okagbue insists that his side still have a lot to play for in the Super Six with not just the title but continental places on offer.“Two defeats don’t mean anything; we’ll still fight on. My team is a determined team and I’m a determined human being, I’ll fight till the end,” he declared.RelatedNPFL Super Six: Subversive Okagbue Vows to Fight for FC IfeanyiUbah’s Pride (AUDIO)June 10, 2019In “NPFl”NPFL: Okagbue Confident Impressive IfeanyiUbah Will Remain Consistent (AUDIO)February 11, 2019In “NPFl”NPFL MD22 Roundup: Mixed Reactions Follow End of Regular Season as Clubs Return to the Lower League Due to Close CallMay 27, 2019In “NPFl”last_img read more

With Brandon Phillips sidelined, Mike Trout leads off for first time since 2013

first_img“He’s feeling better today, but not enough where he can go out and do the things he can do, but he’s day to day,” Scioscia said of Phillips, who is 9 for his past 26 (.346) with three doubles and is hitting .259 with three doubles and three RBIs in 13 games since the Angels acquired him from Atlanta.The Angels were desperate for more punch from the second base position after Pennington, Danny Espinosa and Kaleb Cowart manned it until Phillips joined the club after a Aug. 31 trade. But more than raw numbers went into the acquisition of the 36-year-old Phillips, according to Scioscia.“His presence goes beyond what he does out there on the field,” he said. “Most importantly to us is we need the production. He’s swinging the bat well, doing a great job for us. An added bonus is his demeanor. He’s played for a long time. He understands the game.“He’s a really settling influence to a lot of a guys of guys out there.”Heaney update Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Andrew Heaney played catch for the first time since Tuesday and the Angels hope to “start to get an idea of where he is in the next three or four days,” Scioscia said. Heaney has been sidelined by a shoulder impingement and missed his turn in the rotation Friday.Scioscia said a repeat of Friday’s all-hands-on-deck pitching performance is likely because the Angels don’t have many options. Bud Norris started and pitched two innings before turning the game over to his fellow relievers in an eventual 7-6 victory.It remains to be seen whether Norris will get another start. It could be another reliever. One thing is certain. It’s unlikely a starter out of the bullpen will be asked to throw more than two or three innings at this late stage in the season.“We’ll do what we have to do,” Scioscia said of deploying the so-called Johnny Allstaff strategy again. “Some parts of it worked really well (Friday). Some other guys stubbed their toe and let these guys back in the game. But, if that’s what we have do, then that’s what we have to do.”Blake Parker recorded a six-out save after Cam Bedrosian loaded the bases in the eighth.Escobar improvesThird baseman Yunel Escobar, who has been on the disabled list since Aug. 8 because of a strained oblique and has been slow to recover, is scheduled to start swinging a bat Tuesday. Escobar was sidelined Saturday for the 34th consecutive game.“He’s going to start to swing on Tuesday and then we’re going to just evaluate him every day and see how he feels and see if he is ready to get back out there,” Scioscia said of Escobar, who was hitting .274 with seven homers and 31 RBIs in 89 games before he was hurt.center_img ANAHEIM >> Brandon Phillips was not in the lineup for Saturday’s game against the Texas Rangers, triggering a dramatic change at the top of the Angels’ batting order. Cliff Pennington took over for Phillips at second base, but that was to be expected.What was different?Center fielder Mike Trout batted in the leadoff position for the first time since 2013, which gave the Angels a vastly different look for the second game of their three-game series against the Rangers. Whether he remained there was to be determined.Manager Mike Scioscia said he hoped Phillips would be sound enough to play Sunday in the series finale. Phillips was forced from the Angels’ victory Friday over the Rangers because of tightness in his lower back after a seventh-inning at-bat.last_img read more
