Review of the Day

 

Contracts

Levante have handed Spanish left back Tono a new deal. The 29 year old's contract now runs until 2023.

Ashley Young is close to agreeing a new 1 year contract extension with Manchester United. The 33 year old's current deal expires in the summer.

 

Transfers

Fleetwood Town have signed young right-back Macaulay Southam-Hales from Barry Town United of the Welsh Premier League.

Blackburn Rovers cancelled the contract of young midfielder Willem Tomlinson during the transfer window, to allow the 21 year old to find a new club. Tomlinson has now signed for League Two Mansfield Town on an 18 month deal. Mansfield have also added another free agent, this time 31 year old centre back Ben Turner, who was released by Burton Albion.

Macclesfield Town have also agreed to sign a free agent, this time former Leicester City winger Liandro Martis.

Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik is set to stay after his move to China has fallen through.

Orlando City SC have released right back RJ Allen.

Paris Saint-Germain teenager Antoine Bernede has joined RB Salzburg on loan.

 

Man Arrested For Face Slash

Police have arrested a 27 year old man on suspicion of wounding with intent, attempted grievous bodily harm and violent disorder, as a result of a man being slashed across his face during what the Metropolitan Police described as "some of the most shocking football violence seen for some time". The incident happened before the FA Cup tie between Millwall and Everton, as a brawl involving dozens of people and lasting for a number of hours took place in the streets near Millwall's New Den stadium. A number of coaches carrying Everton fans were damaged, but the FA will not be involving themselves in any investigations as it happened outside of the stadium.

 

Baggies Players To Pay For Fan Coaches

West Bromwich Albion's players are to pay for coaches to take their fans to Elland Road for their Championship match against Leeds United. Baggies captain Chris Brunt was quoted by the club's official website as saying: "Everything suggests it's going to be a big game at Elland Road and if this gesture helps a few more of our fans get there then that's great." The game is set to be played on Friday 1st March, with Leeds currently second in the table and West Brom 7 points behind with a game in hand.

 

Pie Throwing Ban For Cherries Fan

A Bournemouth fan is to be banned from football grounds around the country after throwing a pie onto the pitch during his team's League Cup match against Chelsea in December at Stamford Bridge. Adam Cox admitted throwing the pie when initially questioned by security staff and has now been convicted of throwing a missile on to a football playing area. With a previous conviction for a similar matter, in 2012, he had previously served a 3-year banning order.

 

Hammers To Rename Stand After Bonds

Legendary former West Ham United captain and manager Billy Bonds is to have a stand named after him at West Ham's new London Stadium. The 72 year old, who holds the club record for appearances with 799, will see the East Stand changed to The Billy Bonds Stand on match days. Bonds, who captained the Hammers to two FA Cup trophies, said: "It's a great honour and means so much to me and my family. To think that I am only the third West Ham player to receive this honour after Bobby Moore and Trevor Brooking - you can't get better than that."

 

Wrexham Change Manager

Welsh side Wrexham have reacted quickly after manager Graham Barrow resigned as manager with the team in 5th place in the English National League, 4 points from the top. Former midfielder Bryan Hughes has been put in place with a 3 and a half year deal. Hughes had previously had a short stint as joint manager at Scarborough Athletic.

 

FIFA To Carry On With The Same Old Corrupt Head

Gianni 'Bald Blatter' Infantino is to carry on as FIFA president after no opposition candidate gained enough support (greased enough palms?) to stand against him. Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Ramon Vega had put himself forward to oppose Blatter, but could not find 5 of FIFA's 211 member federations willing to back him.

 

Hammers To Investigate Racial Abuse

After a video taken by a fellow West Ham United fan emerged of a West Ham fan racially abusing Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah as he was set to take a corner at the London Stadium, the Hammers have said they are investigating in an attempt to find the abuser. A West Ham statement read: "We are an inclusive football club. Anyone identified committing an offence will have their details passed to the police and will face a lifetime ban from London Stadium. There is no place for this kind of behaviour at our stadium." They also said that they have "a zero tolerance policy to any form of violent or abusive behaviour".
