TSG 1899 Hoffenheim have shockingly spent £4.5m on the utterly dreadful former Liverpool loanee Ozan Kabak from Schalke 04. Possibly the worst defender I have ever seen play in the English Premier League, which takes some doing in a league which has featured Grant Hanley and Harry Maguire.

Pierre Lees-Melou has joined Stade Brestois for a fee of £2.07m from Norwich City.

Cremonese have taken Santiago Ascacibar on loan from Hertha Berlin.

Moving across the MLS, from the USA to Canada, is Doneil Henry, who has signed for Toronto on a free transfer from Los Angeles FC.

Hellas Verona have signed Alessandro Cortinovis on loan from Atalanta.

Cremonese have paid £3.42m to sign Charles Pickel from Famalicao.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has suggested they will be keeping Frenkie De Jong at the club, despite interest from Manchester United and a need to raise funds: "Frenkie de Jong is our player, we really like him. We received some offers for Frenkie but we didn't accept as of now, as we want to talk with him and know exactly what he wants. We need to clarify some aspects of his situation."

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has revealed that a move to Barca was never an option for Kalidou Koulibaly before joining Chelsea, despite the rumours: "I let Koulibaly go because he asked me to. Barcelona had come in, but they didn't have the money because they are in debt. Then Chelsea came forward and we couldn't say no to someone like Koulibaly, despite the fact I tried in every possible way to keep him, offering €6m per season net. But if a player wants a new experience at a prestigious club, in the biggest league in the world, you have to recognise what he's given you and not put up walls." De Laurentiis was not so happy about former Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina's move away from Napoli to join Al-Nassr: "The Napoli jersey has to be considered the same as your skin. Instead there are those who talk about getting a raise, despite already being privileged, and then go into a totally unknown league just for pure, hard cash then it's upsetting because they showed a lack of attachment to the club."


Injury Round Up

New Leeds United signing Luis Sinisterra has picked up a hamstring injury in pre-season, but the club are hopeful it is not a long term issue and he should be back playing soon.

Arsenal expect Takehiro Tomiyasu to return to full training this week but Mikel Arteta revealed that new signing Fabio Vieira is still a bit away from beginning full training. Kieran Tierney is, unsurprisingly, still not fit.

Job Changes

Former Manchester United player and cult hero John O'Shea has joined Stoke City as a first-team coach.

The PGMOL have promoted four new match officials to the Premier League ranks. Tom Bramall is a new referee, while Natalie Aspinall, Nick Greenhalgh and Steve Meredith are joining Select Group 1 as assistant referees. They have also announced the new roles for a trio of referees that retired (thankfully) at the end of last season. Mike Dean, like Lee Mason, will become a dedicated VAR (video assistant referee). Kevin Friend is the manager of the Select Group 2 officials, while Jon Moss will manage Select Group 1, with Martin Atkinson working as the referee coach of Select Group 1. Even when the useless gimps retire we are not rid of them! Instead they are put into positions to damage the whole future of refereeing in the English game and ensure it continues to deteriorate. It does beggar belief.


Disciplinary Charges

Cameroon's Football Federation (Fecafoot) has been ordered to pay their former national team head coach Toni Conceicao $1.63m in compensation after sacking him on the orders of the country's president. Portugese coach Conceicao had led Cameroon to third place in the AFCON and into the World Cup play-offs when the president ordered he be replaced by former Liverpool defender Rigobert Song. He is the 4th European coach to have had a public dispute with Fecafoot over money, including Winfried Schafer, who had led the nation to win AFCON in 2002 and then the final of the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup. A FIFA tribunal decided Fecafoot had breached their contract with Conceicao without just cause and had to compensate him for that and pay his outstanding salary and bonuses.

Reports in Spain are claiming that Barcelona's sale of 15% more of their La Liga TV rights will not be enough to enable them to register all their new signings after all. That is why they are still considering selling as much as 49% of BLM, their production company also known as Barca Studios, and players such as Frenkie De Jong may be forced out.


Spurs And Bayern Battle Over Kane

Tottenham Hotspur's head coach Antonio Conte has taken exception to comments made by his opposite number at Bayern Munich Julian Nagelsmann regarding Spurs striker Harry Kane. Nagelsmann said of the England international: "[Kane] would score a lot of goals in the Bundesliga. But I don't know the price. It is difficult at the moment." Kane was unsettled last summer by the attempts of Manchester City to sign him but eventually agreed a new contract which runs until 2024. Conte is upset by Bayern's public interest in Kane, which he clearly feels is an attempt to unsettle his star man once more: "I'd never speak about players of other teams. I don't know why Nagelsmann did that - I think it's maybe bit disrespectful. The situation is very clear for Harry here at Tottenham: Kane's important part of our project."
