No deal agreed for Eriksen – Ajax

first_img “So at this time there is no agreement between Ajax and Liverpool. “Whether we negotiate or not, we do not comment on transfer rumours. “Right now Christian Eriksen is focused on very important games we have to play at the end of the season.” Ajax have tried to persuade Eriksen, who joined the club’s youth set-up as a 16-year-old, to extend his stay but they have so far failed. “Christian has informed us that he won’t be signing a new deal with us at this time,” technical director Marc Overmars told Voetbal International. “I think that he and his agent will want to see what options are available in the summer.” Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has been linked with a move for the Denmark international, one of Europe’s hottest young properties who has just over a year remaining on his current contract. However, the Dutch club insist the 21-year-old’s future has not yet been resolved. “We will send out a press release when there is an agreement, only a deal between Ajax and the club,” Ajax press manager Eefje Schep told Danish TV2. Ajax look set to lose star midfielder Christian Eriksen this summer but insist no deal has been struck to sell him to Liverpool.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Richards seals Fiorentina loan move

first_imgMicah Richards has joined Serie A side Fiorentina on a season-long loan after admitting defeat in his pursuit of first team football at Manchester City. Richards is City’s longest serving player, making 245 appearances since his debut in 2005, but has struggled for game time in recent seasons having been usurped at both right-back and centre-half. Having travelled to Florence for a medical over the weekend, he has now joined La Viola until the end of the current campaign. City confirmed the news on their official website. Richards made only 10 appearances last term, two of those in the league, and was last seen as a substitute in the Community Shield defeat by Arsenal, during which he was handed the captain’s armband. The 26-year-old was a key part of City’s title-winning squad in 2011/12 and earned the last of his 13 England caps against Holland two years and a half years ago. He becomes the second England international full-back to head to Italy this summer, with the retired Ashley Cole having signed for Roma. City’s statement read: “Micah Richards has joined Serie A side Fiorentina until the end of the season. “One of the most popular members of Manuel Pellegrini’s squad, Micah has won 13 England caps to date and was an integral member of the City squad who won the title in 2011/12. “A succession of injuries saw the Birmingham-born defender gradually fall behind Pablo Zabaleta in the first-team pecking order and the arrival of Bacary Sagna meant Pellegrini had three top-class right-backs at his disposal this season.” Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany praised Richards on his exit, writing on Twitter: “#MCFC club legend! Proud to have played 6 years alongside this man. Congratulations and good luck at @ACF_Fiorentina my brother #forzaMicah.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

George Kittle signs $75M, 5-year extension with 49ers

first_imgLast Updated: 15th August, 2020 06:20 IST George Kittle Signs $75M, 5-year Extension With 49ers All-Pro tight end George Kittle has signed his five-year, $75 million extension with the San Francisco 49ers that is the richest contract ever at the position SUBSCRIBE TO US Associated Press Television News WATCH US LIVE Written By First Published: 15th August, 2020 06:20 ISTcenter_img LIVE TV COMMENT All-Pro tight end George Kittle has signed his five-year, $75 million extension with the San Francisco 49ers that is the richest contract ever at the position.Kittle officially signed the deal Friday, a day after agreeing to the contract that keeps him locked up in San Francisco through the 2025 season.“I love being a 49er and am blessed to have the opportunity to wear red and gold for years to come,” Kittle said in a statement. “I can’t wait to continue our quest to bring another Super Bowl back to the bay.“I want to thank my teammates for their hard work and help in making me be the best teammate, player and man I can be each week. Together we have already accomplished amazing things, but we all know there is still so much more to do. It’s an incredible locker room to be a part of and I am grateful to my brothers for making this such a fun and exciting place to play football.”Kittle also thanked his coaches, ownership, general manager John Lynch, his family and agent Jack Bechta. The deal includes an $18 million signing bonus and $30 million fully guaranteed.Kittle had been one of the NFL’s biggest bargains after being drafted in the fifth round in 2017 and now he gets the biggest contract ever at the position. The previous high for average salary for a tight end, according to, was the $10.6 million Hunter Henry is getting from the Chargers this season on the franchise tag.Kansas City’s Travis Kelce agreed to a four-year, $57.25 million extension shortly after Kittle’s deal was finalized Thursday.The Niners could have used the tag on Kittle the next two offseasons, but instead managed to work out a long-term deal that satisfied both sides.“George was part of our first draft class and represents as well as anyone the core values we covet in the players we build our team with,” Lynch said. “His talent and spirit are unique, his will and grit contagious and his production undeniable. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for George and our team with him a part of it.”Kittle has been the most productive tight end in NFL history through his first three seasons with 197 catches for 2,664 yards. But he is almost equally as skilled as a blocker in the run game where he is a key piece in coach Kyle Shanahan’s dynamic offense.The Niners averaged 5.0 yards per carry last season with Kittle on the field, compared to 3.5 yards per carry without him, according to NFL NextGen stats.After a solid rookie season, Kittle broke through in 2018 when he set an NFL record for yards receiving in a season for tight ends when he had 88 catches for 1,377 yards and was named a second-team All-Pro.He was almost as productive last season, despite missing two games with injuries, when he had 85 catches for 1,053 yards and was a first—team All-Pro. He also was a major reason the Niners went 13-3 on the way to a Super Bowl appearance.It has been quite a start to a career for a player who caught only 48 passes in 25 college games at Iowa, leading him to fall to the fifth round of the draft.The Niners believed in his athleticism and potential and were surprised he lasted beyond the third round. But they were very fortunate he was there at 146th overall as the ninth tight end selected in that draft.Image credits: AP FOLLOW USlast_img read more
