Eredivisie side FC Emmen have given midfielder Michael Chacon a year's extension. The 24 year old is now contracted until 2021.

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has extended his contract with the Championship leaders until 2022. The German joined the Canaries in 2017 from Borussia Dortmund, where he was in charge of their reserve side. His assistant Edmund Riemer, first-team coach Christopher John and head of performance Chris Domogalla have also signed new deals of the same length.

A one year contract extension has been given to Manchester United's Brazilian midfielder Andreas Pereira. The 23 year old was due to be out of contract in the summer but is now tied down until 2020.


Hibs Ban 2 Fans

Hibernian have banned two season-ticket holding fans who were arrested during their Scottish Premiership draw with Rangers. One was detained for "using a pyrotechnic", while the other for "attempting to get trackside". A third fan, the one who confronted Rangers full-back James Tavernier, was banned from all Scottish grounds. Hibs chief executive Leeann Dempster said in a statement: "Please help us crack down on unacceptable behaviour. Of course, the problems are not confined to this club. To suggest otherwise is nonsense, but we first must look after our own home and our reputation by facing into the issues we have experienced. If you witness something that causes you concern during the match, let a steward know or write in to us, providing us with as much detail as you can. We will also be contacting as many fans as we can, both via email and matchday letters, to reinforce the need for supporters to behave in a way that does the club proud. If need be, we will also look at other more drastic measures. For the record, I did not 'suggest' the closure of the East Stand as has been claimed. Nothing is, or can be, off the table but it is clearly not my intention to immediately or negatively impact on the vast majority of well-behaved supporters who sit in that area. We will not tolerate loutish antisocial behaviour. If you conduct yourself in this way I warn you that we will act to the limit of our influence to remove you from our game."

A police statement read: "Following a report received by West Yorkshire Police this morning (13 March) in relation to abusive racial comments on social media, police have now arrested a 16-year-old male.

Ireland's Best Gets England Call Up

Being recently voted Ireland's best player has not stopped West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice from getting his first England call up. Though you have to wonder what on Aaron Wan-Bissaka has to do to get a call up, when the utterly hopeless Kieran Trippier waltzes in after being dreadful all season. Or why Connor Coady is being overlooked, despite being the only English defender regularly playing in a back three, while the abysmal donkey James Tarkowski and the entirely average Michael Keane are regulars! And Delph? Just why? Why? Why?!? I suppose you cannot expect better of a man who thinks Jordan Pickford deserves to be England's number one and that Jack Butland deserves his England place despite being cack all season while Watford's Foster is left out, despite being probably their standout of the season.
England squad
Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Stoke City), Tom Heaton (Burnley), Jordan Pickford (Everton)
Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Leicester City), Michael Keane (Everton), Harry Maguire (Leicester City), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), John Stones (Manchester City), James Tarkowski (Burnley), Kieran Trippier (Tottenham Hotspur), Kyle Walker (Manchester City)
Midfielders: Ross Barkley (Chelsea), Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), Fabian Delph (Manchester City), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea), Declan Rice (West Ham)
Forwards: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Callum Wilson (Bournemouth)


Neymar Under UEFA Investigation

Paris Saint-Germain's whinger, sorry winger, Neymar Jr has been given yet another thing to cry about as UEFA look into comments the professional acrobat made on social media following his team's defeat to Manchester United. The Brazilian diving legend called a late penalty decision a "disgrace" and that the penalty "doesn't exist", also saying: "It's a disgrace. Four guys who know nothing about football watch a slow-motion replay in front of the television." If anyone would know about disgraceful decisions and how VAR would know nothing about the game it is a 'man' who receives 20 ridiculous decisions in his favour after someone coughs in his vicinity.
