Hibernian manager Neil Lennon has said "He's one we've been keen on for a long time and it's a real coup to get him over the line, Daryl Hordan will give us a real threat going forward and some strength out wide. We had been looking to add in that area and I'm delighted with the options we now have. "He has power and pace and will hopefully give us another dimension to our play in the final third." Daryl Hordan Irish international has signed a three year deal with the club, hoping to make his first appearance on Sunday against St Johnstone. Hordan said "I am delighted to have made the move to Hibs, I've spoken to the manager and am excited for his plans for the season ahead." "Obviously the boys have started well in Europe and the league, they had a good season last year and the ambition is there to follow that up with another successful year. I'm ready to play and looking forward to trying to break into the team." The 26 year old has had four caps for his international side Ireland and since joining Preston North End in January 2017 he made 44 appearances, scoring four goals. Hordan helped his previous club Dundalk qualify for the Europa League group stages and win three league titles in a row.

He's a player with great quality with a very positive and determined attitude," said Emery. "Stephan will improve us on and off the pitch."

  3. Departing Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has refused to rule out a potential move to Manchester United. The 35-year-old announced earlier this month that he would be leaving the Etihad after eight years with the club, but does not want to hang up his boots yet. In an interview with the Manchester Evening News, Toure has not ruled out a move to local rivals United, who are looking to replace the experience of Michael Carrick in the middle of the park. When asked about the retiring midfielder, Toure said: "Yeah, he just left. "Let's see, let's see. I don't rule big teams out. The big teams are very important for me. What they want to achieve, the way they want to go, for me is very important. "I want to go somewhere I can win and achieve. It's going to be hard one day to play against City, but I have to do that. It is part of my job. "I've been playing football for such a long time, I'm no good in the office or something else. I am good in football. "To see myself at a different club is going to be difficult. I have been such a big part of City for such a long time now. "I just want to say that definitely I will continue to play at a high level - Champions League or Europa League. "I want to play two more years. They have to be in the higher level and then I can do something else."

    Thibaut Courtois unsure of Chelsea future

    Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has stressed that he does not yet know which club he will be at next season. The Belgium international played a key role at Wembley on Saturday as the Blues beat Manchester United 1-0 to secure silverware. Courtois continues to be linked with Real Madrid, however, and refused to commit himself to Chelsea in the wake of Saturday's victory. "We'll see what is going to happen after the World Cup," Courtois told Sky Sports. "Like I said in the last weeks or months, I think we'll see after the World Cup whether I am a Chelsea player for next year." With his contract soon running out, the 26-year-old hinted that he might be more inclined to stay at Stamford Bridge if some money is spent in the summer. Asked if Chelsea need to add players in order to challenge for the title, Courtois said: "Yes, I think so. "I think especially if you see how City and United are spending and working. "I think if we want to aim for the top, we should do the same - obviously within the limits of what's possible as well. "I think that the transfer market has gone pretty crazy. Nowadays, you pay £80m for a defender I think - that's crazy figures. "We'll see what's going on and I am sure the board will do what needs to be done."

  5. Yohan Cabaye has yet to commit his future to Crystal Palace despite insisting he is happy at the club. The midfielder's contract expires this summer, and while manager Roy Hodgson has made no secret of his desire to retain him, he also expects him to receive offers from elsewhere. Cabaye has been a regular feature in Roy Hodgson's starting line-up this season, helping Palace secure Premier League safety with four wins in their final five matches. Palace, who will see on-loan midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek return to parent club Chelsea and face the threat of increasing interest in Wilfried Zaha, want to tie Cabaye down before he receives offers from elsewhere. The 32-year-old told Palace's official website: "I don't know what the future holds. It was a hard, tough season so I will have a chat with my agent, the club and the chairman. "I have no stress about my future. I've had three fantastic seasons here, I love the club and my life in London is perfect, so I will see. "The fans are brilliant and I want to thank them once again. Since my first day here, they have been fantastic with me and I've tried to give them back their support. "It's special to play here; the place is rocking every weekend, so us finishing 11th is for them. I hope the future can be even better for them."

  6. Kyle Walker-Peters has signed a contract extension with Tottenham Hotspur which will keep him at the club until 2021.

  7. Rangers have made Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield their first signing under new manager Steven Gerrard. The 29-year-old flew into Glasgow on Monday morning to finalise his move to Ibrox after spending five years at Turf Moor, and the transfer was confirmed at midday. Rangers' new boss Steven Gerrard said in a statement: "I am delighted to have added Scott Arfield to the squad for next season. "He is a talented and competitive midfielder who has competed at a high level in the English Premiership and internationally for Canada. "It's pleasing also that we have been able to start our rebuilding process so quickly after the end of the season. "There is much more to be done of course as we look to build towards our Europa League campaign which will start in early July."

  8. Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has signed a two-year contract extension with the club which will take him to 2025. The 24-year-old signed a six-year deal when he joined from Benfica last summer and, having enjoyed a superb season, has agreed to further extend his tenure. Ederson missed just two Premier League games as Pep Guardiola's charges romped to the title by a record margin and hit triple figures for points. "I'm delighted to sign my new contract," the Brazil international told the Man City website. "It means that the club is happy with my work, they trust me, and I hope to meet their expectations on the pitch and bring a lot of joy to the fans. "I want to win everything we can! All of the competitions, but for me the Champions League is without a doubt a very special competition for us, and it is my dream to win it in Manchester City's shirt."

  9. Arjen Robben and Rafinha have both agreed to one-year contract extensions at Bayern Munich. A week after Franck Ribery also signed a new one-year deal, defender Rafinha and winger Robben have both agreed extensions until June 2019, which are expected to be signed in the coming days. Robben has made 290 appearances for Bayern, winning the Bundesliga title seven times and scoring the winning goal in their 2013 Champions League triumph when they beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 at Wembley. Rafinha has been at Bayern since 2009, winning the German league title six times and has made 239 appearances since joining from rivals Schalke. "We are delighted to extend with these deserving players," Bayern's director of sport Hasan Salihamidzic told the official website. "Both Arjen Robben and Rafinha will play an important role in our planning for the coming season."

  10. Sam Allardyce has claimed that Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave Everton this summer. Multiple media reports this week claimed that the former England forward's representatives have been in the United States to negotiate terms for a move to MLS side DC United due to frustrations with his current role. Toffees boss Allardyce has given a different take on the matter, however, and claimed that Rooney is willing to remain at Goodison Park. "I don't get involved with anything regarding transfers in or out or negotiations but I know there appears to be an interest from DC United but where Wayne lies in it I cant tell you until I've spoken to him. "If the player wants to go - if any players wants to leave I'm comfortable. "But let's get this right - Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave and neither has he had a confrontation with me. "I don't want to make a headline 'Sam says Rooney can leave' - I mean if any player wants to leave he can leave."

  11. Sam Allardyce has stated that he has no issues with Wayne Rooney and thinks the forward would have to receive a "massive" offer to consider leaving Everton. The former England captain has one year remaining on the two-year deal he signed last summer when rejoining his boyhood club after 13 seasons at Manchester United. Rooney has been linked this week with a move to MLS side DC United but Allardyce hopes he will be at Goodison Park next season. When asked whether he wanted Rooney to stay, Allardyce told talkSPORT: "Yes. "There are rumours about Wayne going elsewhere abroad - in China and America - but at the moment he is an Everton player and an Everton fan. "So I wouldn't consider anything on the cards at the moment. It would have to be massive for him to want to leave Everton. "I've not had a problem from day one with Wayne. Wayne loves his football, he loves training, he wants to play and play well like everybody else. "Obviously because of who he is there's ultimately more attention around his body language, about how he plays, about what he is and isn't doing. "We all have to deal with that in our own way and I think Wayne deals with it very well indeed."

  12. Riyad Mahrez has refused to commit his future to Leicester City but says he has withdrawn the transfer request he made in January. The Algeria international was the subject of four bids from Manchester City in the mid-season window but no move materialised. Mahrez then missed training for over a week, but denied going AWOL, and speaking this week, he says he is "relaxed" about his situation. "It has gone. It was in January, it's another transfer window. I am still here - I don't want to put a lot of things in my head," Mahrez told Sky Sports, when asked whether his transfer request still stood. "I am still in contract with Leicester so at the moment I am here and we will see. "At that time I handed a transfer [request] because I had offers from Manchester City so obviously I wanted to go. But now I am still at Leicester. "With me, especially, you never know what is happening. Every time I have to go but I am still here. "I don't really want to talk about [whether] I am going, or staying. I just want to finish the last three games. We will see what will happen for me."

  13. Arsenal have announced that defender Rob Holding has signed a new contract with the club. The 22-year-old defender joined the Gunners from Bolton Wanderers in July 2016 and made his debut against Liverpool in the opening match of the 2016/17 season. Arsenal have not revealed how long the extension will keep him at the Emirates Stadium for, confirming only that it is a "long-term" deal. "We would like to congratulate Rob on his new contract and look forward to his continued contribution in the coming years," said the club in a statement. Holding, who has caps for England at Under-21 level, was part of the squad that reached the semi-finals of the 2017 Uefa European Under-21 Championship in Poland. He made his Gunners debut against Liverpool in the opening match of the 2016-17 season.

  14. Jose Mourinho has confirmed that an agreement is "almost" in place for Marouane Fellaini to extend his contract at Manchester United. Fellaini was signed by former United boss David Moyes from Everton in September 2013, and has gone on to score 19 goals in 154 appearances for the club. The 30-year-old's deal expires at the end of the season, meaning he is able to negotiate a free transfer away from Old Trafford. Fellaini's stoppage-time header gave United all three points against Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday, and Mourinho is keen to keep the Belgium international at the club. Following the victory - which guaranteed United a top-four finish - Mourinho was asked by Sky Sports about Fellaini's future, and said: "The position is that we are almost there. "But in football, the almost is not enough. I think we are almost there, but I can't celebrate because almost is not enough. "I want to see the white paper with the United crest, Ed Woodward's signature and Marouane's signature."

  15. Liverpool have announced that Brazil forward Roberto Firmino has agreed a new long-term deal at Anfield. The 26-year-old joined the Reds from Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015 and has scored 50 goals in 140 appearances for the Merseyside club. Firmino, whose existing deal ran until 2020, has been rewarded for a fruitful season which has seen him score 27 goals, and the player himself sang Liverpool's praises. "It was an easy decision," Firmino told the official Liverpool site on Sunday. "The club have taken me in in an incredible way and I've grown a lot here with my work with the support of the whole team. I am very, very happy here. "Everything fits in the best possible way. My teammates are fantastic and I am very grateful to be able to play with them at this club. "I love to play for Liverpool FC. The fans are excellent and fantastic in how they support us all the way. They support us throughout the games and the work they do during the match is beautiful."

  16. Pep Guardiola has claimed that, while he is manager of Manchester City, John Stones will not be sold. The England defender has not featured for the Premier League champions since the beginning of March after picking up an abductor injury on international duty. In addition, the arrival of club record signing Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao has added to the competition within the Man City back line. However, the Citizens moved to play down reports earlier this week that Stones could leave this summer and Guardiola reiterated the sentiments when asked about the player's future. "I don't know how people believe we're going to sell John Stones," Guardiola told reporters. "He is a young player, an international English player. He's a huge part of the reason why we won the title. "I don't know how long I will be here in Manchester, but as long as I'm here, John Stones will be with us. When he is injured and comes back, injured and comes back, injured and comes back, sometimes it's not easy. "I'm sorry for the guys who announce we're going to want to sell him. I'm sorry – they lie. I'm not going to comment on the transfers when it's fake news."

  17. David Moyes has admitted that Joe Hart's future at West Ham is uncertain as the East Londoners prepare to take on his parent club Manchester City on Sunday. The Hammers will welcome the Premier League champions to the London Stadium, with Hart unable to play as per the terms of his loan deal at the London Stadium. Recent reports have suggested that Adrian may be playing his last match for the Hammers, while Moyes would not be drawn on whether the club have refused to take up the option of signing England international Hart on a permanent deal. "There's certainly no talk on whether it will be Adrian or Joe Hart [as future no 1] until we're in a position of safety, or wherever we're going to be," Moyes said in his pre-match press conference on Friday. "So no we've not discussed anything, to be honest." "I hope [Adrian] plays that well against Manchester City that he's available to play the next one, that's the plan. If you get in and you do well [you stay in]. You can't play a Manchester United or City and do well without your keeper playing well so we need a big game from Adrian on Sunday."

  18. Andres Iniesta has announced he will leave Barcelona at the end of the season. The Spain international came through the youth system with the club and turned professional in 2001. The 33-year-old's announcement came during a press conference at Barca's training ground on Friday, bringing an end to a glittering 22-year career at the Nou Camp. Iniesta, a World Cup winner with Spain, won eight La Liga titles, with a ninth set to be secured in the coming weeks, alongside four Champions League wins and six Copa del Rey crowns. "This is my last season here," he said on Friday. "I have thought my decision through for a long time. For me, Barca is the best club in the world - this club has given me everything. "I would like to thank my teammates and everyone who accompanied me every day, they made me be better. "It's been a dream come true, lots of titles, important moments throughout my career. I am very happy to have played for this club. I am proud." Regarding his future, Iniesta said: "There are still things to work out, different things. I said I would never play against Barca, so it's not going to be in Europe. We will know at the end of the season. "I'm almost 34, I've left everything out on the field, I've given everything to the club, and if I couldn't give everything up to now, I wouldn't be happy. I want to be happy, like I have been here." Iniesta is expected to move to Chinese Super League club Chongqing Dangdai Lifan, with their president Gong Daxing recently admitting they are in negotiations with the midfielder.

  19. Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Harry Kane is a transfer target for Real Madrid, according to former Blancos president Ramon Calderon. Kane is under contract with Spurs until 2022, but has been touted as a potential signing for Real, and Calderon believes the Englishman is on their wishlist, along with Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski. "The objective for Real Madrid, no doubt, is Kane," Calderon told The Sun. "If they want a player for the next five or six years they are going to go for Kane but [Spurs chairman Daniel] Levy is going to ask a fortune for him. "As far as I know, Tottenham is not willing to let him go but Bayern also say Lewandowski is not going anywhere. "[Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz] Rummenigge has said he can bet that he will be in Bayern next season but we have heard that so many times, and in my experience it is the player who has the final decision of where to go. "Any team would like to have Harry Kane...But first of all the player must want to leave and then his club must be willing to let him go. I find that difficult knowing Tottenham are a rich club and are going to have a new stadium, so it's not easy for anyone who tries to get him."

  20. Hector Bellerin has hinted towards staying at Arsenal after revealing that he asked for a specific Gunners shirt number for next season. Despite signing a new Gunners contract last season which runs until 2023, the Spaniard has been consistently linked with both Manchester United and Juventus in the British and foreign press. The defender's agent revealed last month that, though there is always interest in the 23-year-old, no offers have been made and he is happy at the club. Bellerin has worn the number 24 since breaking into Arsenal's first team in 2015 but now has his sights set on the shirt previously worn by Mathieu Debuchy, and says he has discussed the matter with kit man Vic Akers. Talking to teammates Per Mertesacker and Rob Holding on the club's official YouTube page, Bellerin said: "In the summer, I'm going to ask for the number two shirt. I've already spoken to Vic, he knows."

  21. Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has stressed that he has "no problem" with manager Jose Mourinho and that "transfers" are not on his mind. Over the last few months, multiple media reports have suggested that the relationship between the two is somewhat strained, leading to rumours of an exit from Old Trafford. Asked about the rumours linking him with a summer move, Pogba told Canal Football Club: "Right now, I am at Manchester United and I am honestly only thinking about the present. "Transfers are not in my head. We are in the [FA] Cup final and the World Cup is around the corner." On the links to a possible summer move to French champions Paris Saint-Germain, he added: "You know, if I listened to everyone, I would be everywhere." Questions have also been raised about his relationship with Mourinho, to which he replied: "I don't have a problem with him, and I don't think he has a problem with me. "He's the coach and he has to make choices. I am a player and I accept them. I have to answer on the pitch."

  22. Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has confirmed that Valencia have informed his agent they want to buy him this summer. However, the 22-year-old says his preference is to return to Old Trafford next season. Pereira is coming to the end of a season-long loan at the Mestalla, where he has made 28 appearances this season, scoring once and adding four assists. Jose Mourinho expressed disappointment at Pereira's decision to join Valencia in September rather than staying and fighting for his place at Old Trafford but that is exactly what the player hopes to do next season. "Valencia approached my agent and said they want to buy me which is flattering, but it wasn't like it was reported in the media," Pereira told the South China Morning Post. "People said I'd demanded talks with Jose Mourinho when I've demanded nothing. The Valencia coach speaks with me a lot and we have a good understanding, but as far as I'm concerned I'm still a Manchester United player, with a contract at Old Trafford until 2020 and an ambition to make it at United. I've never sought to leave United."

  23. Sam Johnstone has admitted that his time as a Manchester United player may be coming to an end and has accepted this fact. The 25-year-old goalkeeper is currently on loan at Aston Villa - the tenth loan spell of his career at his seventh different club. Johnstone was signed by United when he was 10, but has never made a competitive appearance for the club and he admits that will be a regret for him if he leaves the club on a permanent basis this summer. "If you leave, then the one downside is that you haven't done that despite being there since you were 10," he told the Guardian. "I'd have liked to have done it. But you've got the world's best goalkeeper, David de Gea, at the club and you can't wait around forever. "You realise you might have to take the example of someone like Michael Keane, who went to Burnley and has gone from strength to strength [with Everton and England]. "I have to create my own career. You want to be challenging to get into the England setup. "Nick Pope gets into the Burnley team because of an injury, does very well and then gets his call-up. "It just shows the manager [Gareth Southgate] is watching and hopefully he has me in mind even though I'm in the Championship."

  24. Keylor Navas insists that he is "calm" about his Real Madrid future as he still has two years left to run on his current deal and intends to fulfil them. The reigning La Liga and European champions have been strongly linked with several different goalkeepers ahead of the summer transfer window, including Manchester United star David de Gea. Costa Rica international Navas does not intend to leave the Spanish capital within the next two seasons, however, with his deal not due to expire until June 2020. "I'm calm. I have two years left on my contract and I intend to fulfil them," he told BeIN Sports. "People ask me if I'm leaving, but I'm only leaving to go home to my family." Real drew 1-1 against city rivals Atletico Madrid at the weekend, with Navas putting in a solid performance in between the sticks. The draw ensures that Los Blancos remain four points behind their local rivals, and Navas maintained that the team haven't yet given up. "We have to wait for the league season to end," he said. "It hasn't been an easy season, we'll have to see how far we can go. We've never given up at any time."

  25. Arsene Wenger has revealed that Arsenal are in talks with Aaron Ramsey over a new contract. The Wales midfielder, whose current deal runs to the end of next season, underlined his importance to the Gunners when scoring twice in the rout of CSKA Moscow in the Europa League on Thursday. When asked about a new deal for Ramsey, Wenger told Sky Sports: "We are communicating. "Yes, I'm confident, he's not at the end of his contract, he has one and a half years to go. From my side it is clear, but you always have to find an agreement. "We want him to stay. He's one of these guys who has been here for a long time. He will be an important player in the future of this club." Despite making it clear he is keen for Ramsey to extend his stay beyond 2019, Wenger said he only wants players at the club who are there because they want to play for Arsenal. "I don't want to convince a player (they should sign)," the Frenchman added. "I want the player to be happy to play for the club. Having players who want to play for the club is the way we want to play football and is in the values we feel are important to us. "With the right amount of money we want to pay, all these things have to come together."
