Tottenham legend Ledley King has praised the club's handling of Gareth Bale's ongoing transfer saga.

The Welsh international is close to completing a record breaking move to Real Madrid, and King believes Tottenham have acted as "professionally as possible."

Arsenal target Yohan Cabaye is expected to play for Newcastle against Fulham this weekend.

Thanks to Arsenal's continued interest, the Frenchman has not featured for the Magpies this season, but Alan Pardew admits he may be in the squad to face Martin Jol's men.

Joleon Lescott has admitted he may leave the Etihad in the near future, whilst remaining hopeful of signing a contract extension.

The England defender is in the last year of his current deal and admits negotiations are yet to start on a new one.

Chelsea striker Demba Ba has again been left out of the Senegal squad ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Uganda.

Ba, who was also left out for the last round of qualifiers, has been told by the Senegal manager that he will only pick players who regularly feature for their clubs.

Ashley Young is hoping an injury-free season will help him recapture his best form for Manchester United.

Young hit the ground running at Old Trafford after signing from Aston Villa in 2011, but failed to live up to the same heights last season.

Gerardo Martino has dedicated Barcelona's Super Cup victory over Atletico Madrid to former manager Tito Vilanova.

Vilanova resigned this summer due to his ongoing battle with cancer, but his successor insisted that the trophy belongs to the former coach.
