Earlier today, Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger vowed to supporters that the club were done selling its players. This reaction came on the heels of the news that midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin and forward Jay Rodriguez were rumored to be on their way to Tottenham to reunite with former Saints manager, Mauricio Pochettino.
Liverpool Football Club has announced the signing of 19-year old Belgium striker Divock Origi.
Liverpool paid £10m to acquire the services of the young forward on a five year deal from French club Lille, but he will remain at the French club for a further season on loan.
Origi has netted six times in his 40 appearances at Lille, and impressed many during the World Cup, where he displaced a misfiring Romelu Lukaku as starting striker and netted the crucial goal in Belgium's 1-0 win over Russia.
It seems as if Manchester United are linked with a new transfer signing every day. Some rumored targets, such as Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, have been "on and off " United's radar numerous times for what feels like the entire summer (for example, according to Twitter, today Vidal is back "on").
Less than a year after making a £27.5 million switch from Everton to Manchester United, Marouane Fellaini is on the verge of a transfer to Napoli.
News of the Belgian international's exit from Old Trafford has gathered steam in the past few hours and it is believed a deal between the twenty-time champions of England and the Serie A side could be announced within the next 24-48 hours.
It's a throwback to Tottenham's preseason last July, and if it weren't still so raw, it would be almost comical. With the departure of Luis Suarez, Liverpool is scrambling to repair the delicate threads of their lineup, which was so crudely torn apart by the Catalan Club. While Reds fans wonder what to do with their Suarez kits, Brendan Rodgers is wondering if and how he can muster the Kop for another push at the title but with their talisman no longer heading their attack, will Liverpool be able to sustain their dazzling form of last season?
Southampton footballers Jay Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin are both set to join Tottenham Hotspur, the BBC has reported today.
Southampton are experiencing an exodus this summer with Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallanaand Dejan Lovrento Liverpool, and Luke Shawto Manchester United, as well as Calum Chambers to Arsenal —all leaving for teams sitting above them in the table.
West Bromwich Albion manager Alan Irvine came into the club under heavy scrutiny with the overwhelming initial reaction of the fans being annoyance and frustration. General consensus was that if previous head coach Pepe Mel had been given time to implement his high pressing, quick counter attacking game, he may have been a success at WBA.

Following the blockbuster signing of Alexis Sanchez, delighted supporters in North London have their eye on Arsenal transfer news as Arsene Wenger tries to complete more summer deals to get his side in contention for the Premier League title.
Southampton center back Dejan Lovren has completed his medical and is officially a Liverpool player.
Lovren, 25, spent just a solitary season at St Mary's, scoring twice in 31 appearances. He becomes the third Southampton player to join Liverpool in this window, joining English pair Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana.
The Italian news outlets, Sportmediaset and Tuttosport, are reporting that Inter Milan will offer midfielder Fredy Guarin in exchange for Manchester United's Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez.
The 28-year-old Colombian international has previously been linked with a move to Manchester United, but in recent weeks it has been determined that Serie A champions Juventus had taken an interest in the player.
Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar has been recalled to Queens Park Rangers following a brief loan spell with MLS side Toronto FC.
Cesar represented his country in every match during this summer's World Cup with his standout performance being in Brazil's penalty shootout win over Chile.
Despite struggling to find a regular starting position at QPR last season and being shipped off to Canada, the 34-year-old stepped into the global spotlight by saving two Chilean penalties as the host country went on to win the shootout 3-2.
Southampton Football Club have warned other Premier League suitors that midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin won't be sold for any less than £27million. The Saints have already netted £78 million this summer in the sales of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren to Liverpool, and Luke Shaw to Manchester United.
Chelsea has confirmed that the club has signed Didier Drogba on a one year deal, bringing him back to Stamford Bridge in a player capacity, and to help him transition into coaching after the 2014/15 season ends.
"Drogba of course needs no introduction," announced the official club website. A Chelsea legend, Drogba is capable of terrorizing defenses across world soccer, who scored 157 goals for the Londoners, the last of which famously helped them to a Champions League victory in 2012.
The deal between Southampton and Liverpool for center-back Dejan Lovren will be completed within the next 24-48 hours.
The agreement was reportedly in place earlier this week, but it is just now being confirmed that the Croatian defender will have a medical tomorrow before an announcement is officially made of his move to the Anfield club.
Swansea City announced today that they have made their fifth summer signing in the form of Ecuadorian winger Jefferson Montero. The transfer fee is reported to be £4million.
Montero, 24, has arrived at the club from Mexican top flight club Monarcas Moreliaon a four year deal. The winger has scored 8 goals in 43 appearances for his nation and played in all three of their World Cup games.
Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City have finalized the transfer deals between each club with Ben Davies and Michel Vorm heading to Spurs, while Gylfi Sigurdsson heads to Swansea.
But in this convenient series of transfer deals, who are the winners and losers? Surprisingly, there are more winners than losers in this deal, which is one of the reasons why the deals between both clubs make so much sense.
Remy, Markovic, Can...Why it's an exciting time to be a Liverpool fan is a post from: Just Football

Liverpool lived and died by the sword last season, with a simple philosophy to score more goals than they conceded. In the wake of losing Luis Suarez to Barcelona, Brendan Rogers is having a second crack at this age-old football mantra.
Tottenham Hotspur has yet to officially announce the signing of Swansea City left back Ben Davies. However, the Welsh defender has been spotted training with Tottenham Hotspur in Toronto today, ahead of the club's friendly against Toronto FC on Wednesday night.
While Swansea was on its preseason tour of the United States in Illinois, Milwaukee and Minnesota last week, an agreement was reached between both Swansea and Tottenham to send the talented full back to the London club.
This past weekend, Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson left the club's pre-season training camp in Seattle and this morning was reportedly having a medical at Swansea City ahead of a proposed£10million ($17 million) move.
Speculation is that the 24-year-old is part of a deal that will see Swansea left-back Ben Davies go the opposite way to North London.
In a case of which European media outlet do you believe, Eurosport is reporting that Atletico Madrid and Chelsea have held talks to discuss a potential deal that could see Fernando Torres return to Atletico Madrid.
Meanwhile, Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo quotes an unnamed Atletico Madrid source, saying that no talks have taken place.
Arsenal are close to a deal to sign Colombia national team goalkeeper David Ospina from French club Nice. The club president of the Nice team, Jean-Pierre Rivère,revealed, "There is still no agreement, but we are not far." But if and when a deal is reached, what can we expect from Ospina?
When 17-year-old Ospina put on his gloves for the first time in a top flight match, there were nerves.
Despite Jose Mourinho saying that Chelsea's transfer window was over, it appears likely that Didier Drogba will return to Stamford Bridge for one final season before he retires as a footballer and goes into coaching.
Drogba is currently a free agent after being released by Galatasaray. French newspaper L'Equipe reports that Drogba, 36, is likely to fill the squad place left vacant by Demba Ba, who has been transferred to Besiktas.
So far, Tottenham Hotspur is the only club in the Premier League that hasn't signed a player this summer. Despite manager Mauricio Pochettino's claim that he doesn't expect any new additions at Tottenham, reports in England suggest that Tottenham are the favorites to sign left-back Ben Davies from Swansea City.
Real Madrid are in the final stages of a deal that will see Angel Di Maria sent to Paris Saint-Germain. The only details being hashed out at this hour are whether the transfer will be a loan deal or a permanent one.
A decision is expected within the next 24 hours.
PSG are reportedly weighing up the option of paying the ten-time champions of Europe around£47.
There has been speculation in the Spanish media over the past few days that Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann. But reports in Spain said that the France international's club would not be willing to let him go unless Atletico were willing to pay his buy-out clause of£23.
After a dramatic Sunday, where we saw pictures and stories flying around the Internet, Colombian international James Rodríguezhas wrapped up a hectic 48 hours and completed a£63 million move to Spanish giants, Real Madrid.
The 23-year-old attacking midfielder passed his medical this morning and will be unveiled by the club this afternoon at Santiago Bernabéu.
Real Madrid finally captured their tenth European title. Meanwhile, club president Florentino Perez seems to be reverting back to his old ways of signing big names over filling holes in the team. If Real Madrid acquire James Rodriguez, then it would be a fantastic transaction for the media and fans but it may negatively affect the team.
Alexandre Pato went from the most exciting teenage soccer prospects at Milan to a Corinthians striker targeted by irate fans at the Brazilian club, so what happened with Pato and why is he now hated by every Corinthians fan?
At 16 years old, Pato signed for Internacional and managed to feature ten times for the team, scoring seven goals.
Cardiff City defender/midfielder Gary Medel has been linked with a move to Inter Milan for several weeks. The Chilean international made comments earlier this month that led many to believe that his days at the Welsh side were numbered.
"I remain a player of Cardiff, but now doors are open to play elsewhere and I hope that happens," Medel was quoted by the Chilean press.
Juan Román Riquelme was always a personality that intrigued many in the soccer world. His unparalleled skill and penchant to virtually will the ball wherever he wanted made him such an attractive footballer to watch on any pitch he played on throughout his career.
In the next few days, when Riquelme is presented on the same Argentinos Juniorspitch where it all began as a young kid, many will look at what happened to his legacy at Boca and how it all turned sour.
