Transfers

Free agent former Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United striker Daniel Sturridge has signed for Australian A-League side Perth Glory.

Another free agent, in the shape of former Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Roderick Miranda, has also joined the A-League. In the centre-back's case, it is Melbourne Victory that have clinched his signature.

Cheltenham Town have signed free agent former Arsenal youngster Dan Crowley on a short-term contract. The 24-year-old, who was released by Birmingham City at the end of last season, is contracted until January.

Former Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool defender Steven Caulker is set to transfer his international allegiance to Sierra Leone. The 29-year-old has one cap for England in a friendly defeat to Sweden in 2012, as well as playing for Great Britain in the 2012 London Olympics. Caulker, who is now at Gaziantep on loan from Fenerbahce, has been called up for the first time for the October internationals.

 


Injury Round-Up

Nottingham Forest will be without defenders Jordi Osei-Tutu and Loic Mbe Soh for at least a month.

Former Paris Saint-Germain youngster Soh has been ruled out for a "month to five weeks" after picking up an injury in training.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford returned to full training on Friday, for the first time since his shoulder surgery.

 


Managerial Changes

Williams Sets New Mark
