Ligue 1 giants Olympique Marseille are exploring the possibility of signing Tottenham Hotspur striker Bryan Gil on loan this summer.

Gil, still just 21, was considered one of Spain’s most exciting prospects this time last year. He’s young, fast, good on the ball, and many thought he was the next great player to come out of Sevilla.

Tottenham made it their business to beat everyone to sign Gil last summer. They paid £21.6m to sign the Spaniard and even sent Erik Lamela in the opposite direction to sweeten the deal (sky sports).

Sevilla quickly accepted Spurs’ offer, and Gil, marked as a player who is going to be a “superstar”, moved to North London. Unfortunately, things just didn’t work out for him in England and Antonio Conte sent him back to Spain on loan in January.

Marseille want to sign Bryan Gil on loan from Tottenham

Marseille have always been one of the giants of French football, but the last few years have not been at the level their fans expect. However, Jorge Sampaoli turned things around last season and the Olympians finished second in Ligue 1.

With a Champions League campaign ahead, Marseille want to strengthen their squad, and Fabrizio Romano have just revealed they are looking into the possibility of signing Gil on loan this summer.

Nothing has been decided yet, but the French outfit have added the 21-year-old to their transfer wishlist, and a deal now depends on Tottenham’s demands.

‘Olympique de Marseille have explored a potential loan deal for Bryan Gil, he’s on the list – but it’s still not close as it depends on the terms of the deal with Spurs’, Romano tweeted this morning.

TBR view:

It’s very easy to say that Gil was a flop at Tottenham, but the young Spaniard has barely had a chance to show what he has.

During the first half of last season, before being loaned to Valencia, Gil played a total of 756 minutes, of which only 86 were in the Premier League.

Sending him out on loan was the right move for Spurs, and with the North Londoners returning to the Champions League next season, another spell to gain experience would be brilliant for him.

A move to Marseille is not bad at all. Tottenham could look to neighbors Arsenal to find out how well William Saliba has developed while on loan under Sampaoli. If Gil can do the same, he’ll come back a much better player, which would be perfect for Spurs.

Nottingham Forest will not have the option or obligation to buy Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson on loan according to The Athletic.

Forest are in talks to sign the 25-year-old Manchester United goalkeeper on a season-long loan deal.

Henderson has made just five appearances in the 2021/22 campaign and is desperate to avoid having another season without regular playing time.

Negotiations are ongoing and Nottingham Forest are close to agreeing a deal with Manchester United to sign the goalkeeper this summer.

It was suggested Nottingham Forest would have a £20m option to buy as part of the deal, but those claims were dismissed.

There will be no option or obligation to buy in the deal and Henderson will join Forest on a simple loan deal.

Manchester United are still not ready to completely lose control of a player who has three years left on his contract.

With Nottingham Forest likely to sell Brice Samba, Henderson will likely be number one at the City Ground if a deal is struck.

The 25-year-old wants regular football in order to have a chance of making England’s World Cup squad.

Nottingham Forest are close to agreeing a deal to bring Dean Henderson on loan from fellow Premier League side Man Utd, according to reports.

Henderson looked set to replace David de Gea as the Red Devils’ new number one at the end of the 2020/21 campaign, but the Spaniard moved ahead of him at the start of last season to reclaim his undisputed starting spot .

There has been a lot of speculation that he could leave Old Trafford during the summer transfer window with Newcastle heavily linked with the former Sheffield United stopper.


Ten Hag’s rocky start among 10 interesting things we noticed about Premier League games


But it now looks like Nottingham Forest have won the race to sign him with sky sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth insisting the newly-promoted side are ‘close to agreeing a deal to sign’ Henderson, who played just three games last season.

It will be a ‘£20million loan with option to buy’ next summer and Man Utd will ‘pay part of the wages next season’, Sheth adding that ‘Forest are showing great ambition – talks led by Miltiadis Marinakis, son of owner Evangelos.

Meanwhile, former Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish believes Man Utd should sign Christian Eriksen “in the blink of an eye” with the Denmark international available on a free transfer.

McLeish said Football Insider“For me, it’s obvious. If they can get Christian, take him in a heartbeat.

“I still think United are spot on and are fading a bit. With the manager there have been players that Man United have been linked with and I think: ‘No’.

“I just don’t see any progress for Man United in that respect when I see some of the names linked to them. That’s what Ten Hag will find to be the hardest part of his career and life, recruitment.

“If he and the scouts don’t sign the guys who can take Man United to another level, I’m sorry, it’ll be the same old, the same old. We’ve seen that over the last five, six years, or let me go back even further, from Sir Alex (Ferguson).”

Tottenham talent Troy Parrott is set to join Sunderland on loan during the current transfer window, according to expert Stephen Elliott.

The former Black Cats man told TEN that a move to his former club would be the ideal next step in the young Irish striker’s development.

Parrott spent last season on loan at Milton Keynes Dons as they missed out on promotion from League One in the play-offs.

It was Sunderland who got up at Wembley and a move to the second tier would be a quality upgrade next season for Parrott.

Parrott set to join Sunderland

He said: “He’s had this full season in Ligue 1 and I think he’s now a better player than Ligue 1. I know people say he hasn’t scored a lot of goals in Ligue 1. , but the way he plays, he was always involved in goals and he started to score a few more towards the end of the season – really good goals.

“But for him to keep improving he has to step up a level. I think somewhere like Sunderland – they need two strikers – they have Ross Stewart there at the moment but he would need a little help in there.

“I think if Troy Parrott came to Sunderland I think he would be willing to play for a club like that with the big crowds, the atmosphere at the games and that feeling of doing well there and thriving there- He looks like the type of player who likes to play on big occasions and I think that could be a really good move.

“He is now learning how to grab free kicks, get his body in positions where he takes a hit off a defender, be smart and save time for his team. He has to play in every game (in Ireland) for me. He really, really excites me. He reminds me a bit of a street footballer and over time he will make better decisions on his last pass; that will come.

It has been reported that Parrott could still be loaned out again this summer, with plenty of second-tier interest in signing him.

He’s keen to make his mark at Spurs and impress Antonio Conte, but that may have to wait until the 2023/24 campaign.

Sunderland are back in the big time and when they play well and the fans are up there, it’s a great atmosphere up there, an atmosphere that a player like Parrott could thrive on.

With James McKeown’s departure from Grimsby Town confirmed, the Mariners could be looking for another goalie to compete with Max Crocombe next season. live shell reported on Sunday that England Under-20 international Harvey Cartwright will be loaned out from Hull City this season after signing a new long-term contract with the club.

Grimsby could be the perfect place for Cartwright, who will be looking to improve his level from his previous loan spells at Barton Town and Gainsborough Trinity. The 20-year-old was born in Grimsby and is highly rated by his parent club Hull. Therefore, a League Two loan on the road in familiar settings could be the perfect next step, and he could provide the quality needed to challenge Crocombe for the starting spot in goal and gain the experience Hull want for him.

Cartwright spoke to live shell on the potential of returning on loan and said he would like to cut his teeth in the EFL for his next temporary move. “It was discussed,” said the 20-year-old. “But only briefly, and I don’t really follow through on it.

“I leave it to the club to decide what they think is best for me and we discuss that when it comes down to it,” he said. “It’s definitely a consideration, but whether or not it will happen I don’t know. I’m open to all ideas of where I’ll be playing next season, I just want to play first-team football. If I had to go out on loan, it would hopefully be in the league.

The Mariners are likely to face intense competition for his signing from League One club Peterborough United, managed by former Tigers manager Grant McCann, who will have a pre-existing relationship with Cartwright. The Posh are also in the hunt for a goalkeeper after putting their first-choice keeper Christy Pym on the transfer list and sanctioning the departure of Dai Cornell.

The Grimsby-born man came through the Hull academy ranks alongside Keane Lewis-Potter, Jacob Greaves and Brandon Fleming and was a regular at the Yorkshire club at various youth levels. The England youth international then made his first-team debut at QPR and then started the next game at Oakwell against Barnsley last season, making a good impression which helped him secure a new long-term deal the month last.

Crocombe has reached the appearance threshold to secure a one-year extension to his original contract, which will see him stay with the Mariners for next season. The New Zealand international made 30 appearances for Town last season. He impressed fans in the play-offs, but he was untested at Football League level. The introduction of high-level competition in Cartwright could also help Crocombe’s development.

Town benefited greatly from a loan from Hull last season in Andy Smith, and the young centre-back could return to Blundell Park with his role at City next season to be decided, and he could return alongside the boyhood fan of Town, Cartwright.

6 Celtic loan transfer options as Ange Postecoglou seeks next Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers https://twnonline.org/6-celtic-loan-transfer-options-as-ange-postecoglou-seeks-next-jota-and-cameron-carter-vickers/ Mon, 13 Jun 2022 08:43:47 +0000 https://twnonline.org/6-celtic-loan-transfer-options-as-ange-postecoglou-seeks-next-jota-and-cameron-carter-vickers/ The loan market has been particularly favorable to Celtic in recent seasons.

The loan market has been particularly favorable to Celtic in recent seasons.

It’s something Ange Postecoglou made excellent use of last term as Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers were smash hits for Benfica and Tottenham.

The latter is definitely back and Jota should follow in the coming days.

And with those deals done, attention turns to who Parkhead’s next loan gem could be.

The club have money to spend after getting a Champions League salary, but the resources are not unlimited and Vinicius Souza has already been linked to a first loan deal.

here Save sport run the rule on six other potential diamonds in the rough.

Paulo Bernardo (Benfica)

Both Celtic and Benfica have reason to be happy with the way Jota’s loan spell went last season.

Save sport understands that negotiations are well underway to make it permanent – with a deal due to be announced this week.

And it looks like teams are keen to do business with linked 20-year-old midfielder Paulo Bernardo again.

The Portugal Under-21 star broke into the first team during the second half of last season and is said to be keen to fight for his place.

But his £7m price tag is similar to Jota’s and a temporary move to Parkhead – while keeping his long-term options open – could be on the cards.

A versatile midfielder, Bernardo’s pressing numbers are impressive, as he also managed 7 key assists in just 839 minutes of league action last season.

Joe Rodon (Tottenham)

Welsh defender Rodon finds himself at a surprisingly similar crossroads to Carter-Vickers at Tottenham.

Signed from Swansea two years ago, the centre-back arrived with a seemingly big future but is struggling to develop his potential with just 15 Premier League appearances.

Seemingly unrated by Antonio Conte, a loan move seems highly likely for the 24-year-old, who has three years left on his contract.



Joe Rodon in action for Wales

A move within the Premier League could be favoured, although Spurs are likely to listen to any offers.

And with Champions League football definitely on the agenda at Celtic Park, it would be an attractive option for the 27-time Wales side.

Keaton Parks (New York)

Formerly signed to Benfica, Parks was once one of the brightest prospects in American football.

Now 24 and plying his trade in MLS, however, his rise to the top has plateaued somewhat.

And if he wants to realize his potential and have the career that many expect of him in his native country, he will have to make a jump to Europe at some point.



Keaton Parks on the ball for New York

The Texas-born midfielder is combative but deceptively subtle, at his best in a midfield role. He’s been a regular for NYC this season and they won’t want to lose him, especially halfway through the MLS season.

But they are also unlikely to deny him another chance in European football and he will be on Postecoglou’s radar since his time at City Football Group.

Any loan for Parks would likely come with an option to buy, and the 18-month deal that brought James Sands from New York to Rangers can be used as a yardstick for how it might be structured.

Yan Couto (Manchester City)

Couto, 20, is a player who is on Celtic’s radar after being heavily linked last summer.

He ended up joining Braga instead – where he enjoyed a terrific season in Portugal’s top flight.

The right-back isn’t exactly a concern for Celtic at the moment with Tony Ralston flying high and Josip Juranovic proving a stable option.

But Couto brings something different to the table. He is a creative force of nature and seems like the perfect candidate for the reverse full-back role that Postecogluu covets.



Yan Couto in action against Rangers

He could be key to unlocking tight defenses and has an eye for passing that neither Ralston nor Juranovic possess.

He’s also versatile enough to play on the wing or at left-back if needed.

However, a lack of guaranteed first-team minutes may mean Manchester City are looking elsewhere for their Brazilian sensation.

Josh Wilson-Esbrand (Manchester City)

Another City youngster who could well be on the agenda is left-back Josh Wilson-Esbrand.

The 19-year-old has been linked to The Express claiming the “wonderkid” is lined up to provide cover for Greg Taylor.

He won’t be a guaranteed starter, but as a natural left-back there would be minutes available – especially if Celtic sink deep into the Champions League.

He has only made one appearance for City’s first team as he impressed in the EFL Cup against Wycombe and the next step for him is regular first-team football.

Harvey White (Tottenham)

Another Spurs option, young midfielder White is difficult to assess given his lack of first-team involvement.

At 20, he’s one for the future, but a move to Portsmouth in the first half of 2021 showed what he’s talking about.

White likes to break through lines and he’s in Callum McGregor’s mold of being able to fill in defensive midfield or further up the pitch.

He captained Spurs’ Under-23 side and was a regular on the bench in the second half of last season.

He’s also played at left-back in the past – a big bonus for Celtic who need cover in that position.

But with Oliver Skipp back from injury and new arrivals expected in midfield, chances may be hard to come by.

And proving he can cut it under immense pressure at Celtic Park, and in the unforgiving physical environment of Scottish football, would be a big step for the youngster.

After an excellent Serie B campaign with Cremonese, Nicolò Fagioli is no longer a hidden secret.

The young Juventus loanee was one of the best performers in the campaign which saw the Lombards finish second and subsequently earn historic promotion to the top tier.

According the Nazione Going through ilBianconeroFagioli caught the attention of Fiorentina, with their manager Vicenzo Italiano becoming an admirer of the youngster.

The report adds that Viola’s management have already discussed the possibility of signing the midfielder from the Bianconeri, most likely on a dry loan.

However, the player’s contract expires in 2023, and Juventus would like to sign off on a renewal, as he is keen to stay in Turin and fight for a place in Max Allegri’s squad.

Fagioli first joined the Old Lady’s youth ranks in 2015 and has represented several young Bianconeri teams, including the U-23s.

Last season, he contributed three goals and seven assists in 33 Serie B appearances for Cremonese.

Juve FC says

In the presence of Fabio Miretti, Nicolò Rovella and the other Juventus midfielders, Allegri would struggle to please everyone in the department.

Therefore, one or two young people will have to leave. So if the cards fall on Fagioli, we can only hope that it will be a temporary departure, because we are talking about a player who has immense talent.

Supporters of Michigan’s payday loan interest rate cap ballot initiative met the June 1, 2022 deadline to participate in the November 2022 ballot in the state. If not taken up by the state legislature this summer, the proposal would ask voters to approve a state law capping interest rates on payday loans, which can currently reach more than 370% APR. , to a maximum of 36% APR.

The statutory process initiated indirectly by the State requires timely collection of signatures support equivalent to eight percent of the votes cast for Governor in the last gubernatorial election, or 340,047 for the 2022 election, to be counted. Michiganders for Fair Lending – the sponsor of the initiative – collected more than 570,000 signatures including 405,265 (after a quality control process). The group cited numerous concerns as to why the payday loan interest rate cap was necessary, including evidence that current rate conditions are trapping the state’s vulnerable citizens in a cycle of debt, make it difficult to obtain housing and have a disproportionate impact on rural communities and communities of color. . They note that similar state initiatives have been passed with significant bipartisan support and list partner partners such as the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan (CEDAM), Project GREEN, Lake Trust Credit Union, ACLU, NAACP of Grand Rapids, Habitat for Humanity, United Way of Michigan, Michigan League for Public Policy, Center for Responsible Lending; Civil Justice Center; and Black Impact Collaborative.

After meeting the deadline to submit the necessary signatures, once validated by the Board of State Solicitors, the Michigan Legislature will have 40 days to approve the initiative, as submitted. If the legislature rejects the proposed initiative or fails to act in time, the proposal will be placed on the November 2022 ballot for voters to decide. If passed, Michigan will join 18 states plus the District of Columbia that have capped payday loan rates at 36% APR or less. The cap figure mirrors that of the interest rate cap on lenders serving active duty members and dependents established by the Military Loans Act, and has been a recent benchmark for “all understood”. As the sponsor noted, these types of ballot initiatives are generally popular with voters, and the initiative is highly likely to become law in Michigan.

Everton manager Frank Lampard has included Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks on his list of transfer targets for this summer, according to The Telegraph [June 7].

The Toffees are keen to strengthen their squad after narrowly avoiding relegation in the 2021/22 season, with Lampard identifying the midfield as an area to strengthen following Donny Van de Beek’s return to Manchester United from loan.

After falling down the pecking order under Antonio Conte, Winks was told he was free to leave the North London club and the Blues entered the race to secure his signature.

Spurs value the former England international at £20m as he has two years left on his contract at the club, and with finances tight at Goodison Park that means Lampard could be targeting a loan deal.

Lampard is also keen to see what happens with Conor Gallagher at Chelsea this summer as he tops his target list. Gallagher is set to return to Stamford Bridge for pre-season under Thomas Tuchel, so Everton may have to wait until later in the window to act.

Standard

Everton need depth in midfield, so the first standard midfielder to become available at another club is linked with a move. Typical.

That said, Winks could be a shrewd deal on loan or at a price below the quoted £20million.

Defensively he is well positioned and on the ball he is a very good passer although he is often accused of playing too carefully. With a little coaching, he could become a regular in midfield to turn games around and dictate the tempo.

Fabian Delph is set to leave the club when his contract runs out later this month, freeing up a place in midfield, while Allan could also leave and return to Serie A.

The club needs depth and Winks is a proven player in the Premier League and ideally not too expensive, so it would make sense to at least take a look.

Last summer, reports claimed Tottenham Hotspur wanted Wout Weghorst after a campaign in which he netted 21 times in the Bundesliga for Wolfsburg.

Weghorst would have the chance to move to the Premier League. But it was Burnley who got his signature, signing the Dutchman for £12 million following the departure of Chris Wood.

In the end, the move didn’t work out. Weghorst scored just two goals as the Clarets were relegated from the Premier League.

7 REALLY irreplaceable footballers

He missed a golden chance on the final day of the campaign that would have put Burnley above Leeds in the battle to stay on their feet. Surely you would imagine a goal at this stage would have made life much more difficult for the Whites before they scored their winner.

Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images

Weghorst gave a glimpse of what his future holds. The 29-year-old has now told VI he won’t be playing in the Championship next year. He has left the door open for a loan exit, hinting he would be open to returning to Burnley if they are promoted.

“We have clearly agreed in advance that I will not play in the Championship. The club would like to keep me and will do everything they can to get back to the Premier League as soon as possible. he said VI.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are looking for a new striker. Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici are once again faced with the difficult task of finding someone to compete with Harry Kane while being content to be an understudy.

Spurs’ return to the Champions League will help. But it’s still going to be tricky.

Perhaps Weghorst could be the answer if Burnley are open to a loan deal. Of course, his stock has fallen since moving to Turf Moor. But he averaged a league goal every two games at Wolfsburg.

And with Tottenham players, you imagine Weghorst would have a lot more opportunities to work in North London.

This may be a disappointing decision for many. But taking Weghorst on loan could see Spurs sign a ‘great‘ attacking as cover for Kane. And that would leave the club with plenty of funds to meet some of the other priorities.

Much may depend on the players Tottenham have in mind. But Weghorst’s comments should certainly get Tottenham’s attention given the club’s past interest.
