Sports News of Thursday, 9 August 2018
Hello good day and welcome to our comprehensive coverage of the summer transfer window in England. Yep, it’s the new, earlier, transfer deadline day.
The English top flight has decided that transfer business after the season begins is too much of a disruption and so, for the first time, the window closes before anyone gets on to the pitch.
Which leads to two problems.
1. A lot of clubs have barely seen some players since the World Cup ended.
2. The rest of Europe can still sign players for a couple of weeks.
So as per usual, Ghanaweb.com will be across every cough, spit, rumour, done deal and tantrum between now and when the window slams shut at 17:00
From a Ghanaian perspective, we will be keeping taps on the Jordan Ayew situation at Swansea. The Ghana international has refused to train and is said to have gone AWOL in order to force Swansea to sell to Crystal Palace.
Stay with us throughout the day for all the confirmed deals.
