Harry Kewell sacked by League Two side Notts County

Harry Kewell has been fired from Notts County after just 14 games in charge.

Former Australia international Harry Kewell has been sacked as manager of English fourth tier side Notts County.

The ex-Leeds and Liverpool forward, who was only appointed at County on Aug. 31 following an impressive stint at Crawley, was axed on Tuesday with his side sitting just outside the League Two relegation zone.

The 40-year-old, who had signed a three-year contract to replace Kevin Nolan at Meadow Lane, won just three of his 14 matches in charge and departs the club along with assistant manager Warren Feeney and first-team analyst Paul Murphy.

County chairman Alan Hardy said the board believed “quick action was essential.”

“Harry’s passion and commitment as a coach is unquestionable. I enjoyed seeing first-hand his love for the job and it gives me absolutely no pleasure to take that away from him,” he said in a statement released on the club’s website.

“Unfortunately, however, things quite simply were not working out for him here at Meadow Lane.

“Results have not been good enough and performance levels are a continuing concern. We see no reason to continue with something we don’t think can work.

“Harry leaves with our best wishes for the future and our search for a new manager begins immediately.

“We hope to make an appointment before Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two match at home to Cheltenham Town.”

Steve Chettle will oversee County’s Checkatrade Trophy clash at Doncaster on Wednesday night.

Transfer Talk: Juventus want Jadon Sancho to learn from Cristiano Ronaldo

Paul Mariner assesses the latest transfer rumours, including the chances Alexis Sanchez, Robert Lewandowski and Patrik Schick make moves in January.

With the winter window opening soon, the rumour mill is beginning to gather pace. Who will be moving where come January? Transfer Talk has the latest.

TOP STORY: Juventus want Sancho to learn from Ronaldo

Juventus only signed Cristiano Ronaldo this summer but the Italian club are already seemingly looking for his future replacement, with Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho on their radar according to Calciomercato.

Ronaldo is 33 years old but has stated that he wants to keep playing until he’s 40, and we’re all more than aware of his incredible physique so that’s a distinct possibility. It could be, of course, that Juve just want to snap up Sancho before his price rockets above the €80 million they are willing to splash out now. Or that they want him now to learn from CR7 himself while he’s still on the pitch.

Either way, the 18-year-old has impressed for Bundesliga leaders Dortmund this season with five goals and seven assists in all competitions and is attracting most of Europe’s top clubs. So one can only imagine how the England international would develop under Ronaldo’s watchful eye.


22.10 BST: That’s going to bring Tuesday’s live edition of Transfer Talk to a close. Thanks very much for joining us, and be sure to check back in a few short hours when we return with all the latest headlines pulled from Wednesday’s back pages.

20.38 BST: With a staggering 12 players set to have their contracts expire, Manchester United are involved in “ongoing” negotiations to extend deals of Juan Mata and Ander Herrera, according to Sky Sports.

18.06 BST: The Evening Standard is reporting that Mesut Ozil turned down offers of £1m a week in Asia in order to sign his new £350,000-a-week contract with Arsenal last season.

16.40 GMT: Wayne Rooney is making a farewell appearance for England against the United States on Thursday but there’s also been rumours he may leave D.C. United and head back to England on loan. Not so…

16.30 GMT: Brighton fans rejoice… striker Glenn Murray has extended his contract until the end of the 2019-20 season.

15.36 GMT: Real Betis left-back Junior Firpo caught the eye when he scored against Barcelona at the weekend, so naturally he’s now being linked with Arsenal and Manchester City by AS. Evidently he has a £43.5m release clause so…

14.50 GMT: French outlet Le Foot claim that Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud could be on his way way to Marseille in January,

13.49 GMT: If Alexis Sanchez was hoping that PSG would swoop in and save him from his nightmare at Manchester United, he won’t want to read the Independent. It says that PSG are no longer keen on the 29-year-old and believe they already have one of the best forward lines in the world.

12.56 GMT: Real Madrid are reportedly interested in Juan Quintero, who has been on loan at River Plate from FC Porto since January.

11.21 GMT: Tottenham need a backup for Harry Kane, that’s clear. Step forward Celta Vigo forward Maxi Gomez, who El Pais say is top of their list. Having scored six goals in 10 La Liga games for Celta, the 22-year-old might fancy staying put rather than moving to sit on the Spurs bench though.

“Difficult question. No, I don’t think so,” he said when asked by Sky Sports about whether his future lies away from the club. “Things are different from last season.

08.45 GMT: The agent of Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele insists his client is able to “shut out” all the “unfounded” criticism that has rained down on him recently and that it will not push the World Cup winner to question his future with the La Liga giants.

Dembele’s lifestyle has been called into question of late with reports the France international has regularly arrived late for team meetings and games with his club, but Moussa Sissoko told RMC: “Ousmane’s not reacting too badly. He’s knows how to shut out that criticism, especially when it’s unfounded. Having said that, he knows how to use it when it’s not, to react in the best way possible on and off the pitch.

“Ousmane is 20 [actually 21], plays for Barcelona, one of the biggest clubs in the world. He’s had a super start to the season scoring six goals and two assists. I don’t understand all the critcism right now. We’re aware there are things to improve, that’s for sure. He’s 20, it’s normal. But Ousmane is very calm, he keeps working.”

PAPER TALK (by Chris Borg)

Sarri intervenes as Chelsea chase Fekir

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri wants Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir at Stamford Bridge and has spoken to him about a move, the Sun says.

Fekir had been on the brink of joining Liverpool before the World Cup, but the transfer stalled and talks failed to resume.

The France international has since been linked with Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Chelsea — and the Sun, citing reports, says Sarri has tried to seize the initiative. It says he has told Fekir he “would play a key role,” but competition for his signature will be intense, with Madrid and Bayern reported to have had him watched recently.

United and Sanchez ‘stuck with each other’

There could be plenty of changes at Manchester United in January — but the departure of Alexis Sanchez will not be one of them, says the Telegraph.

Recent reports suggested Sanchez was hopeful that Paris Saint-Germain could move for him, claiming the former Arsenal player felt “isolated.”

But the Telegraph says United and Sanchez “fear they are stuck with each other” amid “growing concerns that his signing was a costly mistake.”

It adds that the club “have seen next to nothing for their huge investment” but his struggles on the pitch and the cost that would be involved in signing him have put off other clubs.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho continues to target a new central defender, with Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar and Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld remaining high on his list.

That may spell the end of the United road for Eric Bailly, although the Telegraph says it is unclear whether the Old Trafford hierarchy would agree to his sale, while Marcos Rojo could also go.

Nasri West Ham move could be in doubt

It had seemed all but certain that Samir Nasri would be reunited with his former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini at West Ham — but that may not be the case, according to the Mirror.

It reports that Nasri’s switch “is in danger of collapse amid concerns over his lack of fitness” after reports said he would sign an £80,000-a-week deal until the end of the season.

There are fears the 31-year-old midfielder “may not be ready to play by the start of January, when his ban for doping expires,” and that has left West Ham uncertain about bringing him in.

The Mirror adds that a final decision is set to be made this week, but says the deal “is in the balance when it had looked on course.”


– Newcastle “are in the box seat” to sign striker Salomon Rondon permanently when his loan from West Brom expires at the end of the season, the Chronicle reports.

Venezuela international Rondon scored twice as Newcastle beat Bournemouth, and the Chronicle says he is eager to extend his stay at St James’ Park.

– Fenerbahce want to bring in Crystal Palace defender Jairo Riedewald, Football London, citing reports in Turkey, says.

Riedewald, who has not played for Palace in the Premier League this season, had been linked Swansea but Fener are now favourites.

Transfer Talk: Liverpool plan record £85m move for Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele

The FC panel answer your tweets on Liverpool’s precarious position in Group C, how Cavani’s absence affected PSG and if Ousmane Dembele or Malcom is more likely to leave Barca.

With the winter window opening soon, the rumour mill is beginning to gather pace. Who will be moving where come January? Transfer Talk has the latest.

Liverpool ready record move for Barca’s Dembele

Liverpool are set to shatter their transfer record to sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona, according to the Sun.

France forward Dembele joined Barca last summer but could be on his way out amid questions over his attitude, with the Sun saying Jurgen Klopp “wants him to boost his team’s Premier League title chances.”

Klopp is reportedly so keen to sign the 21-year-old that he will spend £85 million, eclipsing the £75m fee that brought Virgil van Dijk to Anfield.

The Sun says Klopp “is set to test Barca’s resolve on a player they bought from Borussia Dortmund for £135.5 million.”

Sources have told ESPN FC that Barca are concerned about elements of Dembele’s lifestyle.

He was omitted from the squad for Sunday’s defeat to Real Betis after missing training earlier in the week, but the club are reportedly reluctant to sell.

Mourinho and United set for barren January

If Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho thought he had endured a frustrating summer, January could be much worse, the Independent reports.

Mourinho wanted a new defender and continues to target one, with Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar and Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld high on the list.

But the Independent warns that he “is set for more frustration as United currently look unlikely to sign anyone in the midseason window.”

It adds that Mourinho “has been agitated by a failure to properly sit down with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to talk about targets.”

And although his job does not appear to be in immediate danger, some in the United hierarchy “are said to be mindful” that he could leave at the end of the season.

The Independent says there are questions over some Mourinho signings, with the disappointing performances produced by Fred so far leaving him viewed as “a purchase that reflects a wider problem.”

Spurs closing in on Cagliari star

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino wants new signings, and the Sun reports that the club “are set to splash £35 million on Cagliari’s Nicolo Barella.”

With Mousa Dembele having suffered an ankle injury against Wolves earlier this month, Spurs want to bring in Barella to boost their midfield.

The Sun says Pochettino is hopeful that their bid will be enough, but Liverpool and Juventus are also interested in a player who has been compared to Steven Gerrard.

It adds that “Spurs are sparing no expense to land their man, despite Italian champions Juve having dropped out of the race.”


— Real Betis were linked with Newcastle forward Ayoze Perez in the summer and remain interested as the January window looms, according to TalkSport.

Citing reports in Spain, it says Betis are prioritising additions to their attack and have put 25-year-old Perez top of their list.

— Both Chelsea and Manchester United had been keen on Napoli defender Elseid Hysaj, but both will be disappointed, according to the Mail.

It reports that Albania international Hysaj is in negotiations over a new deal and his agent is hopeful an agreement will soon be finalised.

The Netherlands took Europe’s last berth in the FIFA Women’s World Cup after beating Switzerland 4-1 on aggregate in the play-off finals.

After then defeating Switzerland, the European champions will join hosts France, England, Germany, Norway, Italy, Scotland, Spain and Sweden plus 15 other qualifiers in the 8 December draw.


First leg: Netherlands 3-0 Switzerland (Utrecht)
Second leg: Switzerland 1-1 Netherlands (Schaffhausen)
Netherlands win 4-1 on aggregate

  • After the home side dominated the first half of the opening leg but could not break the deadlock, Sherida Spitse gave the Netherlands the lead early in the second period with a free-kick.
  • Lieke Martens doubled the Dutch lead in the 71st minute after being set up by Shanice van de Sanden, and Vivianne Miedema then made it three.
  • The first leg was watched by a capacity crowd of 23,750, a record for any European women’s play-off, the tickets sold in less than 30 minutes.
  • Switzerland were missing injured Lara Dickenmann and suspended Ramona Bachmann, though the Chelsea forward returned for the second leg.
  • It was for a foul on Bachmann nine minutes into the return that Anouk Dekker was sent off for the Netherlands but early in the second half Miedema struck for an away goal with an individual effort from just outside the box.
  • Coumba Sow came off the bench to level on the night for Switzerland but for the second World Cup running, the Netherlands have qualified via the play-offs.
  • The second leg was the last game in charge of Switzerland for Martina Voss-Tecklenberg, who will go on to coach her native Germany. Nils Nielsen, who led Denmark to the UEFA Women’s EURO 2017 final, will take over on 1 December.

Netherlands v Denmark

First leg: Netherlands 2-0 Denmark (Breda)
Second leg: Denmark 1-2 Netherlands (Viborg)
Netherlands win 4-1 on aggregate

  • First-half goals from Lineth Beerensteyn and Van de Sanden gave the European champions the advantage after the first leg though they hit the woodwork twice.
  • Beerensteyn was twice on target in the second leg, her seventh-minute away goal coming just after Nadia Nadim had converted a penalty, and she struck again just before the end. That was enough to ensure the Netherlands saw off the side they beat in the UEFA Women’s EURO 2017 final.

  • Géraldine Reuteler, who played with Lehmann at July’s Women’s U19 EURO in Switzerland, scored 23 minutes into the second leg for what proved an invaluable goal. Tine De Caigny levelled on the night with 13 minutes left but Belgium’s hopes of a first World Cup appearance are over.
