Ross County have bolstered their defence with free agent pair Callum Morris and Keith Watson.

Leicester City have sold left-back Connor Wood to Bradford City for an undisclosed fee.

Sunderland's new boss Jack Ross has made his first signing. Turkish defender Alim Ozturk has arrived on a free after leaving Boluspor.

Mitch Hancox has left Macclesfield Town, after turning down the offer of a new deal, to sign for MK Dons as a free agent.

Spanish centre back Alexis has left Spanish football following his release from Alaves. The veteran defender will be plying his trade in Saudi Arabia with Al Ahli next season. Fellow Spaniard Jose Manuel Jurado has also joined after he left Espanyol.

 

Toon Defender Attacked On Holiday

Republic of Ireland international Ciaran Clark had to be taken to hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning after being knocked unconscious by another man following an argument at Crystal's Bar in Magaluf. The Newcastle United player has suffered cuts and bruises to his face. A British man in his 30s was arrested and charged with criminal injuries.

 

Lennon Gets Another Ban

Hibs manager Neil Lennon has been handed a three match ban following his celebrations after his team scored a late equaliser in a 5-5 draw with Rangers in May. He was found guilty of misconduct, after running onto the pitch doing an aeroplance impression, receiving a one-match ban. However that triggered a further two-match ban that had been suspended earlier in the season. It does seem a bit harsh to me, though I have to admit I think Lennon brings a lot of his problems on himself with his attitude, which is all aggression and confrontation, but this time it all seems a bit harsh. He takes a huge amount of abuse at Rangers, it is no wonder he was so happy to get the point, then you look at the score and how it must have been an emotional rollercoaster of a game. It just feels like common sense was cast aside simply because of who it is.

 

Ronaldo Shirt Claims Denied By Referee

Watford's Moroccan international winger Nordin Amrabat had claimed the referee, Mark Geiger, had asked Cristiano Ronaldo for his shirt during the Portugal-Morocco clash. Amrabat said Portugese international diver, oh sorry, Portugese international defender Pepe had told him of the referee's request. Geiger has "categorically" denied the allegations.

 

Burger King Apologise Over World Cup Advertising Campaign

American fast food giant Burger King have apologised for a social media campaign they ran which offered a free lifetime supply of Whoppers and 3 million roubles to any Russian woman who fell pregnant to a football celebrity. The advert asked Russian women to ensure the success of the Russian team for generations to come by getting the good genes from top footballers. They have now apologised for their "clearly offensive" campaign.

 

Nagelsmann To Take Charge Of RBL

Young Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann is set to leave his post as head coach of Hoffenheim to take over at RB Leipzig at the end of the forthcoming season. The 30 year old has agreed a contract that will keep him in charge at Leipzig until 2023. RBL will now need to appoint a coach for next season after Ralph Hasenhuttl left at the end of last season.
