Newcastle close in on Riviere

first_img Newcastle’s striking department was decimated at the end of last season by the departures of loan signings Loic Remy and Luuk de Jong and the out-of-contract Shola Ameobi, while Papiss Cisse is currently recovering from a knee injury. Summer signing Siem de Jong played in an advanced role last night as Pardew has suggested he could do on a regular basis if required, although he is regarded more as a midfielder. Riviere’s capture would begin to address that particular issue, although it would be unlikely to end the Magpies’ search for reinforcements with Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette among a series of other potential targets. The latest potential arrival made 30 appearances for Monaco last season and scored 10 goals. Meanwhile, Newcastle’s proposed unveiling of Janmaat, which was initially expected on Tuesday afternoon, is now unlikely to take place on Wednesday either, although the delay is purely administrative. Janmaat has been signed to replace France international Mathieu Debuchy, whose proposed move to Arsenal has been on hold while the Magpies have tied up the Dutchman. The Gunners are confident they have a deal in place, although Paris St Germain, who took Debuchy’s close friend Yohan Cabaye from St James’ Park in January, have a long-standing interest in him. Press Association Press Association Sport understands the two clubs have reached an agreement over the £4.7million-rated 24-year-old, who could head for Tyneside within the next 24 hours to clinch a move. Riviere would become Pardew’s fifth summer signing, with Holland defender Daryl Janmaat yet to formally complete his switch to Tyneside from Feyenoord. center_img Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is poised to make a breakthrough in his search for a new strikeforce, with the club closing in on Monaco’s Emmanuel Riviere. last_img read more

Dea Herdzelas celebrated in the Bosnian Finals in Tunis

first_imgTwo of the best BH tennis players Dea Herdzelas and Jelena Simic played a great finale yesterday at the ITF Challenger in Tunis, worth 10.000 US Dollars.For a long time it seemed that the 23-year-old Simic will continue the unbeaten run that started a week before the last, but the 18-year-old Herdzelas managed to successfully end the tiebreak of the second set and thus, as it turned out, definitely turn the flow of the match.After full 166 minutes the score was 3:6, 7:6 (6), 6:3 in favour of the player from Sarajevo, who thus achieved the first single title in 2015 and the third one in her career, which will push her to the new record of the career at the WTA rankings as of August 24th, i.e. up for about 50 positions as compared to the current 401st position.Jelena will also tangibly improve her previous best ranking – for about 70 positions, and she will take around 480th position.(Source: klix.ba)last_img read more

A December 2016 majority decision loss to Joseph Parker marks Ruiz’ sole loss, although many boxing pundits believe the “Destroyer” did enough to have his hand raised in victory that night.Anthony Joshua career recordAnthony Joshua hauls a 22-1 record (21 KOs) into the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia to take his crack at redemption. The signature victory on the 30-year-old’s pro ledger is a thrilling 11th-round TKO of Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium in London back in April 2017. The victory made the 2012 Olympic gold medalist the unified world heavyweight champion. He went on to defend that crown against the likes of Carlos Takam, Joseph Parker and Alexander Povetkin, before losing it to Ruiz at Madison Square Garden on June 1. Avenging that loss with a win over Ruiz would be the former world champion’s greatest ring feat yet.
