Chelsea player in ‘advanced negotiations’ with club, agreement ‘expected to happen…

first_imgHowever, through an inability to find the back of the net and some clear differences with the manager, the forward never quite made it in La Liga during the first half of the campaign.Revealing on Thursday they were looking to cut the deal short, Valencia made it clear Batshuayi would effectively return to Chelsea until he found himself a new club.According to Le10 Sport, it won’t be long until he’s somewhere else, as Monaco, who are currently fighting against relegation under Thierry Henry in Ligue 1, want the forward on a loan with a view to buy.Embed from Getty ImagesThis move shouldn’t really come as a surprise, as the principality club have held an interest in the Belgian in the past, while their manager knows the player well from their time together when he was Roberto Martinez’s assistant with the Belgium national team.Batshuayi also knows Franck Passi, Henry’s assistant, from his time at Marseille.Le10 explain negotiations are ‘advanced’ and an ‘agreement is expected to happen quickly’.We’ll see about that.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayPremier Diamond BoutiqueHong Kong’s first lab-grown diamond empirePremier Diamond BoutiqueUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comFind out where single guys are hanging out in Tung ChungDating.comUndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndoPerfect-Dating.comThere Are Many Handsome Guys in Tung Chung Who Happen to Be Single!Perfect-Dating.comUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50Undo Joining Valencia on loan for the season after a prolific six month spell at Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi was supposed to use the move as an opportunity to get the regular minutes he wouldn’t be given had he stayed at Stamford Bridge.last_img read more

ICC discussing COVID-19 substitutes for test matches, says ECB official

first_img(Reuters) – The International Cricket Council (ICC) is discussing the possibility of introducing substitutes if a player tests positive for COVID-19 during a test match, England and Wales Cricket Board director of special projects Steve Elworthy said. Last year, the ICC approved “like for like” substitutes across all formats of international cricket to replace concussed players during matches and Elworthy said the same rule would have to be applied for COVID-19 substitutes.“COVID replacements are certainly something that the ICC are discussing,” Elworthy told Sky Sports https://www.skysports.com/cricket/news/12040/12000595/england-vs-west-indies-covid-19-substitutes-for-cricket-being-discussed.“I’ve seen communication about that and it’s certainly something we hope would be allowed — specifically for test matches, not necessarily ODIs (one-day internationals) or T20s (Twenty20). “That replacement would have to be a ‘like for like’ player… Our on-site COVID medical practitioner and Public Health England would be informed immediately and that player would then be put into isolation for a period of time.”England are set to host the West Indies in a three-test series next month, with the visitors flying in a 14-man squad plus 11 reserves who will train and quarantine together before the first test scheduled for July 8 in Southampton.“With the testing protocols of getting those players into that (bio-secure) bubble first, you would hope that wouldn’t be a scenario we’d have to deal with,” Elworthy added. “But clearly it’s something we are planning for.”last_img read more
