Aston Villa to open contract talks with Alan Hutton next week

Image

sbobet asian Steve Bruce says Aston Villa will open contract talks with defender Alan Hutton, regardless of what division they will be playing in next season. Villa play Fulham at Wembley in the Championship play-off final on Saturday, live on Sky, as they look to return to the Premier League after a two-year absence. Hutton has played a key role in Villa's promotion challenge this campaign, with boss Bruce describing him as a "manager's delight."

The 34-year-old Scot is out of contract in the summer but is in line to be rewarded with a new deal after reviving his career under Bruce. "I think I've picked Alan Hutton more than anybody else," said the Villa boss. "He is everything that I enjoy in a player. He gives you everything he's got. At 34 years old he is quite magnificent in terms of his fitness. "He works like a beast, always first in - a manager's delight. If anyone deserves a contract, it's Alan Hutton. sbobet asian

"I can confirm to you now we will be talking to him next week, whichever division we are in. He deserves it. Playing left-back has probably enhanced him a bit. It's slowed him down a bit, he has to come back on his right foot to play. But since we moved him there he's gone to a different level." Bruce, who is targeting his fifth promotion as a manager and his third through the play-offs, says the club will have to look after players like Hutton should they be successful on Saturday and get back into the Premier League.

"We have got to be like any other promoted Championship club if we manage to get there, we've got to now take the next step of building again to stay in the Premier League," said Bruce. "When I see Leicester spending £22.5m on a right-back, giving him 80 grand a week, I look and think "Wow". And that's Leicester. That's what it is now. "It's big bucks and big finances for new players, that's the way it is." sbobet asian

Friday's Manchester United transfer rumours: Aleksandr Golovin scouted

Image

maxbet We round up the latest Manchester United transfer rumours on Friday, June 1. Manchester United are closing on a £15m move for CSKA Moscow's Aleksandr Golovin, according to The Sun. Jose Mourinho watched Golovin in action on Wednesday as Russia were beaten 1-0 by Austria in a friendly in Innsbruck.

maxbet Apparently Golovin, 22, could replace Juan Mata in the Manchester United midfield next season. The Sun also reports that United are preparing a £50m bid for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld.

The defender is yet to sign a new deal and has been linked with a move away from Spurs. The Manchester Evening News says United are "adamant" they do not want to sell Anthony Martial and are attempting to secure his future with a contract extension.

United have reportedly seen a bid of £80m for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic knocked back by Lazio. Il Bianconero claims United are among a number of clubs interested in signing the highly-rated Serbia international. maxbet

Xherdan Shaqiri signing provides Jurgen Klopp with a differe

Xherdan Shaqiri signing provides Jurgen Klopp with a different option

Image

รับ พนัน บอล When it became clear that Mohamed Salah would not be able to continue, Jurgen Klopp had a big decision to make.Trying to replace a player with 44 goals in the season to his name is an unenviable task at the best of times, let alone 29 minutes into a Champions League final. Klopp plumped for Adam Lallana, who had played just 16 minutes of football in the two months prior, had played more than half an hour only once since January and has not played regularly in the front three since the 2015/16 season.

Liverpool confirm Shaqiri signing
The only realistic alternative was Dominic Solanke, a 20-year-old with only one senior goal to his name. Liverpool's fearsome front three had taken them to Kiev but the drop off in quality to those in reserve was stark, certainly following the departures of Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge, on loan, in January.

It is little surprise then that Klopp and Liverpool have moved to address the issue with Xherdan Shaqiri becoming the club's third summer signing. รับ พนัน บอล There was a decidedly mixed reaction from Liverpool fans when the Swiss international was first linked with a move to Anfield, around the time a deal for Lyon captain Nabil Fekir fell through.

However, Shaqiri's release clause of £13.5m makes it a relatively risk-free deal. Even if things were not to work out for the former Stoke playmaker on Merseyside, Liverpool would be confident of at least recouping their money for a player who does not turn 27 until October, especially given the current state of the transfer market.

Of course, the hope for both the player and the club is that it won't come to that and there is plenty to suggest he can be success at a club he first wanted to join in 2014."I had offers from Liverpool and Atletico Madrid," Shaqiri told spox.com in December 2016. "I opted for Liverpool. [Then-manager] Brendan Rodgers contacted me a few times during the World Cup. But Bayern blocked my move."

Four years on and having finally arrived, Shaqiri will have a point to prove.
While few would argue against his quality, stylistically Shaqiri will have to make some adjustments. His work rate was called into question at times last season and whether it is in the front three or in midfield, if such questions are asked again this season then he won't be in the team for long.

The numbers show that Shaqiri actually covered more distance per game รับ พนัน บอล (9.6km) than any of Liverpool's front three but it is how he went about that that will likely need to change. Shaqiri made significantly fewer sprints per game than any of Salah, Firmino or Mane and with a limited pre-season due to his World Cup commitments, it will be interesting to see if he has the time, or indeed the capability, to adapt to a more physically demanding style of play.
