Swansea City have made an encouraging start to their summer transfer business.

Four players walk through the door, with Matty Sorinola, Harry Darling, Nathan Wood and Wasiri Williams joining Russell Martin and Co in South Wales for next season.

These signings are unlikely to be the only arrivals in SA1 before the start of the new campaign, with departures also likely if Swansea are to strengthen further in this window.

Links with Swansea players are already emerging and are expected to rage over the coming weeks. Here we take a look at the transfer status of every member of Martin’s first team.

READ MORE: Swansea City return to training at Fairwood

Andy Fisher

Swansea’s number one stopper and a key man for Martin. His distribution last season was his biggest attribute and important to the way they want to play. I’m not going anywhere this summer.

steven benda

Swansea will sell the German if an acceptable offer arrives. The stopper is keen on regular playing time.

Lewis Webb

The youngster will likely be in and around the first team but another keeper is expected to be brought in this summer.

Nathan Wood

I have just signed from Middlesbrough on a free transfer. Martin was delighted with his capture and is likely to push for a first-team spot this term.

Matty Sorinola

Signed on loan from Belgian side Union SG last week, can play both left and right of defense and further up the pitch. A regular in Martin’s XI is his likely fate.

darling harry

Martin was desperate to bring in the centre-back from former club MK Dons. Will be in the starting XI at Rotherham United on the first day of the season.

Joel Latibeaudiere

Ended last season strong but is now the subject of transfer interest from Burnley. Can be sold if the right offer arises.

Ryan Bennett

Surplus to needs. Did not attend Swansea’s pre-season camp at Pennyhill Park last week and is no longer training with the first team at Fairwood. Reading kept an eye on him.

Ryan Manning

Martin is a huge fan of the Republic of Ireland man’s versatility. Probably a mainstay again next season.

Kyle Naughton

Wrote a contract extension just before the end of the season. Ready to anchor the backline of the 2022/23 campaign.

Tivonge Rushesha

He is currently recovering from a serious ACL injury and will not play again until the end of the year. One for the future, though.

brandon cooper

League One clubs are interested in his services. A move on loan would be beneficial, especially in light of the arrivals of Wood and Darling.

Ben Cabango

Currently recovering from ankle surgery. Came by leaps and bounds under Martin last term and should be part of plans for the future.

Nathanael Ogbeta

Frustrating start to his Swans career when he arrived injured from Shrewsbury Town. Will face a fight for his place now that Sorinola has arrived.

Matt Grimes

Skipper is one of the first names on the roster and signed a new contract before the start of the year. As always with Swansea, if a significant offer came in for Grimes he would likely be sold.

Jay Fulton

Barely featured last season and a South Wales departure seems the most likely. However, his salary could be an obstacle.

Liam Walch

Had an unsuccessful spell on loan with Hull last season. Like Fulton, his salary could prove a stumbling block for potential suitors, as could his injury record.

Jamie Paterson

Just signed a contract extension in SA1. The events of last January, when a contract dispute led to him training away from the first team, seem a very long time ago now.

Daniel Williams

His loan spell in Ireland was cut short due to injury. Returning to Fairwood in preseason with his teammates, Martin is expected to make an imminent decision on his near-term future.

Flynn Downes

One of Swansea’s crown jewels. Recently linked with Premier League sides Southampton, Wolves and Crystal Palace, while Leeds United are long-time admirers of the former Ipswich man. Valued between £11-12 million. Would be sold if this evaluation is respected.

Ollie Cooper

The striker said last week he was keen to continue after a successful loan spell with Newport County. Martin is a fan of the youngster, who is keen to break into Swansea’s plans but may have to seek another loan first.

Olivier Ntcham

Back with the team after a long summer break. I hope for a good pre-season and to stay fit and have more impact this term.

Jordan Garrick

Had a successful season with Plymouth Argyle at Home Park, just missing out on the play-offs. Said to be keen to return to Devon.

Morgan Whittaker

Like his fellow loanees, the striker will move on this summer if the right offer arrives. Portsmouth stalks him.

Liam Cullen

As above. Pompey is also interested in Cullen, who spent the second half of last season with Lincoln City, alongside Whittaker.


Another striker of interest to the Fratton Park club. Sheffield Wednesday are the latest to be linked with the former Wigan man. Its versatility could be considered a real asset.

Joel Piroe

The Dutchman has been linked with Leicester City and Watford and as all Swansea fans will concede, like Downes, the striker will be sold if a decent offer arrives.

Michael Obafemi

He really came out of his shell after Christmas and reached a burning form. It has sparked links with Brighton but the former Southampton man is likely to be held back if money is brought in elsewhere.


]]> EFL opening day predictions: Huddersfield can capitalize on switch to Burnley https://lancsycs.org/efl-opening-day-predictions-huddersfield-can-capitalize-on-switch-to-burnley/ Sat, 25 Jun 2022 16:23:02 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/efl-opening-day-predictions-huddersfield-can-capitalize-on-switch-to-burnley/

Vincent Kompany will have given the Championship openers more than a cursory glance when releasing the EFL fixtures.

A Friday night game at the John Smith Stadium between beaten finalists from last season’s play-offs Huddersfield and relegated Burnley will lift the curtain on the 2022-23 campaign in English football’s second tier.

And this July 29 clash could prove crucial for Carlos Corberan’s Terriers and Kompany’s Clarets as both teams aim for promotion.

The past must be forgotten

Huddersfield were saddened to lose to Nottingham Forest in last season’s play-off final, losing 1-0 at Wembley.

Unsurprisingly, Corberan’s side will be eager to put together another strong promotion push.

As for Burnley, their six-year spell in the Premier League has come to an end and everything has changed at the club this summer, with former Manchester City skipper Kompany appointed manager.

The exhausted team is a concern

The Belgian, 36, faces a tough task as no less than six first-team players leave on free transfers, including James Tarkowski and Ben Mee, while goalkeeper Nick Pope has joined Newcastle.

Several areas of the squad need strengthening but there are doubts over whether the club have the necessary funds meaning Kompany will have to be smart in the transfer window and scrutinize loan deals and free agents .

It won’t be easy for Burnley to secure an instant return to the Premier League and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them beaten at West Yorkshire.

Owls to get started quickly

Similar to Huddersfield, Sheffield Wednesday also endured play-off heartbreak last season losing to Sunderland in the League One semi-finals.

With Wigan, Rotherham and the Black Cats now back in the Championship, the Owls should be one of the main challengers for automatic promotion and they can get off to a good start at home to Portsmouth on July 30.

Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore has been busy in the transfer market

Manager Darren Moore has already signed six new faces, including Will Vaulks, Michael Smith and David Stockdale, with more additions expected before the transfer window closes.

Portsmouth lost 4-1 to Wednesday on the final day of last season and it was Pompey’s away form that really hampered their progress, with just six road league wins recorded overall from 2021-22.

Carlisle will make a quick statement

For much of last season, Carlisle appeared destined for relegation from League Two.

But the appointment of Paul Simpson at the end of February resulted in a huge reversal of form.

Simpson, 55, led his side to six wins in his first seven games in charge, ultimately sealing the club’s status for another season, and he subsequently signed a three-year contract.

He knows the club well, having been player-manager from 2003 to 2006, leading the club to two promotions in that time, and he’s been busy in the transfer market.

Four players have been added to the ranks, including Leeds striker Ryan Edmondson, and there is every chance that Carlisle will kick off their campaign with a home win against Crawley on July 30.

The Reds struggled on the road towards the end of last season and they could struggle to get to Brunton Park, a venue they haven’t won since 2012.

What Burnley XI could look like on opening day; The £4m striker joins 5 new signings https://lancsycs.org/what-burnley-xi-could-look-like-on-opening-day-the-4m-striker-joins-5-new-signings/ Thu, 23 Jun 2022 20:00:00 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/what-burnley-xi-could-look-like-on-opening-day-the-4m-striker-joins-5-new-signings/

It’s been a summer of change at Burnley. And not just in the canoe either.

Just a week after being officially unveiled as Sean Dyche’s permanent successor, Vincent Kompany’s tenure in charge of the Clarets is set to begin with the loss of Nick Pope; One of England’s best shot-stoppers and Burnley’s most consistent performer during a torturous 2021/22 campaign.

Pope is set to join Newcastle United.

And the England international won’t be Burnley’s only high-profile departure either. The impending exits of James Tarkowski and Ben Mee deprive Kompany of a longstanding partnership with the centre-back that will go down in Turf Moor folklore.

Moreover, it is common knowledge that Maxwel Cornet has a £17m release clause in his contract. It is unlikely to remain untriggered for long. Meanwhile Wout Weghorst, a bully who only arrived from Wolfsburg in January, has little interest in playing second-tier football ahead of the Qatar World Cup.

Besiktas chairman Ahmet Nur Cebi recently confirmed that “we have shaken hands with Weghorst economically” ahead of a likely move to Turkey.

Entrances and exits in Burnley

But it’s not all bad news.

According to Lancs Live, Josh Brownhill and Charlie Taylor are set to follow in Jack Cork’s footsteps, entrusting their future to Burnley for the time being. Dwight McNeil has a lot of admirers but is not the number one target for any of them while, according to The Athletic, the Clarets are under “no pressure” to take advantage of the very promising Nathan Collins.

Moreover, Kompany’s reputation – both at home and abroad – can only help attract a fleet of new faces. Burnley are unlikely to return with a third offer for Oxford United defender Luke McNally, according to The Athletic, but Swansea City’s Joel Latibeaudiere could be an affordable alternative. Especially now, Swans boss Russell Martin has reunited with former MK Dons ace Harry Darling.

Latibeaudière, who could be the subject of a £500,000 offer at Burnley, worked with Kompany at Manchester City.

The seemingly inevitable arrival of Dan Ballard from Arsenal will reduce the need for defensive reinforcements, however. According to The Athletic, a player who shone on loan at Millwall will soon undergo a medical at Burnley.

Scott Twine in it?

Further, Burnley would have has offered £4m for Scott Twine of MK Dons. Scorer of 20 attacking midfield goals last season, the set-piece specialist would add much-needed thrust and unpredictability in central areas. Twine’s pursuit could be accelerated after another target – Jed Wallace – sealed his move to West Brom.

Blackpool’s Jordan Gabriel is another EFL prospect on Kompany’s radar. And the former Arsenal youngster isn’t the only right-back to become a target for Burnley in recent days. Michael Amir Murillo, an attack-minded £3.5million Panama international, shone under Kompany at Anderlecht last season.

Just like the tireless Republic of Ireland international Josh Cullen, a potential replacement for injured Ashley Westwood. Majeed Ashimeru, a more attacking and creative midfielder, has held talks with his former RCSA boss but hopes to stay put and play European football with Anderlecht in 2022/23.

Mandela Keita, a 20-year-old dynamo described as a ‘mix between N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba’, might be a more accessible target. Kompany is said to be confident KV Mechelen’s 6ft 4in target Makhtar Gueye can also thrive at Burnley, especially with McNeil and Taylor providing serves from all over.

A likely replacement for Weghorst, Gueye scored 13 goals last season. Burnley reportedly paid £4million.

Success in the Jupiler League

However, finding someone who can step into Pope’s shoes at the other end of the field may be the biggest test Kompany and his recruiting team face.

Then again, 35-year-old Wayne Hennessey proved there was still life in the old dog with an inspired display in Wales’ World Cup qualifying win over Ukraine recently. And, according to The Sun, Kompany could ask his former employers a favor with the Burnley boss, a big fan of Manchester City’s Aro Muric.

Muric was a disaster on loan at Nottingham Forest in 2019/20. But he’s a more mature, confident and reliable glover these days.

Pregnant Charlotte Crosby, who shot to fame on the hit reality show ‘Geordie Shore’, hosted a party at the rooftop bar of the Vermont Hotel in Newcastle, where it was revealed she was going having a baby girl with boyfriend Jake Ankers.

Carrie Ann was a guest at the celebrity studded party where former Celebrity Big Brother winner Charlotte wore the unique tangerine jumpsuit she had Carrie-Ann make for her.

“Charlotte wanted something really bright and colorful, but she wanted to avoid blue or pink, so no clues were given as to the gender of the baby, which she herself only knew at the time of the reveal. .”

A skywriter revealed the baby’s gender to partygoers by drawing a letter G in water vapor in the sky, and when the letter became clear, pink confetti was launched from a cannon.

Charlotte’s outfit was inspired by the costumes worn by chart-topping singer Rihanna during her pregnancy and American reality TV star Kin Kardashian. Film crews filmed Carrie-Ann making the jumpsuit for Charlotte’s upcoming BBC Three and iPlayer series, Charlotte in Sunderland.

Carrie-Ann said: “Charlotte is a really lovely, genuine girl who is easy to be around.”

Guests included Charlotte’s Geordie Shore star and Holly Hagan, whose bridesmaids wore dresses designed by Carrie-Ann.

No stranger to the spotlight, former Habergham High School student Carrie-Ann runs her own company, Rene K Couture, based in Barrowford.

She had the ingenious idea to bring some joy to the many brides who have been forced to postpone their wedding plans due to the pandemic.

At the time, she had around 300 wedding dresses on hold as brides were forced to postpone their wedding day.

Man who ‘fell in a nightclub’ drove around Burnley Park in pursuit https://lancsycs.org/man-who-fell-in-a-nightclub-drove-around-burnley-park-in-pursuit/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 04:00:00 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/man-who-fell-in-a-nightclub-drove-around-burnley-park-in-pursuit/ An ‘appalling’ and dangerous driver who had been drinking at a nightclub drove through park trails as police chased him.

Aaron George, 32, had stolen his girlfriend Lisa Barton’s Audi when the two parted ways after an argument.

Continuing the case, Paul Cummings said George was seen at 6.30am on Saturday May 14, stumbling out of a nightclub, before getting into the driver’s seat of the white Audi with two friends riding in also in the car.

A concerned member of the public called the police who began to search for the vehicle.

Aaron George, 32

After locating the car at around 7.20am, officers and a police helicopter followed the car in a very long chase, with George leading the car through Thompson Park into the city.

The police helicopter watched George drive on the paths through the park, with recorder Paul Hodgkinson saying he was lucky no one was injured or even killed, but it “could have been very different”.

After leaving the park, George continued to try to evade the police, driving through alleys and side streets before forcing an unmarked police cruiser into a parked car.

George appeared to start losing steering control after it appeared that a tire had deflated.

When police finally managed to stop the vehicle after a chase of more than 10 minutes, they said there was a strong smell of alcohol coming from the car and it was clear that George was very drunk.

By way of mitigation, Philip Holden said George’s driving in the park was not “very fast”, but accepted that the dangerous element resulted from the risk to the public, the location of the driving and the condition of the accused at the time of the offence.

Mr Holden said: ‘This is appalling conduct, but there may be worse cases of conduct than this court has seen.

Lancashire Telegraph: Driving along the narrow pathways of Thompson's Park in Burnley as the police helicopter watched from aboveHe drove along the narrow pathways of Thompson’s Park in Burnley as the police helicopter watched from above

“It’s not the speed but the circumstances of this incident.”

He added that George “bitterly regretted” his actions and pleaded guilty as soon as he had the chance.

Mr Holden added that George is now back in a relationship and has two children, aged four and 10.

Recorder Paul Hodgkinson said George, of Bevan Place, Nelson, could have killed someone that morning.

He said: “You drove through red lights, you drove the wrong way on roadways into traffic, you drove on sidewalks, you drove on sidewalks, you drove through a park.

“All this time, you were unable to drive because of your drunkenness and drug addiction.

“Fortunately, you didn’t hurt anyone, or worse, kill anyone.

“You put pedestrians in danger, you don’t care because you only had one thing in mind and you were protecting yourself from the police.”

George had previously pleaded guilty to aggravated taking vehicle, dangerous driving, failing to provide a specimen, driving without a license and driving without insurance.

He was jailed for 16 months and banned from driving for three years and seven months.

His license has been approved and he must pass a further extended test before getting back behind the wheel.

Progression and panache – three Burnley players who could thrive under Vincent Kompany https://lancsycs.org/progression-and-panache-three-burnley-players-who-could-thrive-under-vincent-kompany/ Sat, 18 Jun 2022 05:50:00 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/progression-and-panache-three-burnley-players-who-could-thrive-under-vincent-kompany/

Vincent Kompany will get his first glimpse of his Burnley squad in the coming days when the Clarets return for pre-season training.

The team return to Gawthorpe on Monday for fitness tests, although those who have been absent on international duty will be given extra time off, with those matches only ending this week. Kompany, who was confirmed as head of the Clarets on Tuesday, will be at the helm and will be eager to see what he is working with.

Here are some of the current Clarets who could be a good fit for the new boss.

READ MORE: Every Kompany word on Burnley vision

Nathan Collins

The Irishman scored a wonderful midweek goal for his country in midweek and shone in his appearances for Burnley last season.

And at just 21, there’s room for improvement for a player who could well spark interest in the coming weeks. The chance for him to be mentored by Kompany, one of the best central defenders in the business, is a proposition that really whets the appetite.

Dwight McNeil

Kompany places great importance on ball retention and McNeil has the credentials to do so.

He suffered last season but showed glimpses of being back to his best under Mike Jackson and in theory should be able to thrive at a lower level.

McNeil has the ability to move the team forward in possession while producing some of the dynamic attacking play that we haven’t seen enough of in the last 12 months.

Connor Robert

Kompany spoke about the intention to attack during his interview with the club and Roberts is full of it. The right-back is capable of playing as a full-back or even on the right of midfield, such is his ability to move forward.

His energy and desire will be characteristics that will attract the attention of his new manager and after spending a year at the club, the Welshman will want to find a regular starting place.

]]> Burnley: Jordan North faces flight delays and emergency landing https://lancsycs.org/burnley-jordan-north-faces-flight-delays-and-emergency-landing/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 04:00:00 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/burnley-jordan-north-faces-flight-delays-and-emergency-landing/ Burnley DJ, Jordan North, is in travel misery this week after facing long delays at the airport as well as a terrifying emergency landing.

It comes after the Radio One presenter filmed a BBC Three show in a mysterious exotic location and also relaxed for a weekend in Spain.

Speaking on his in-car radio segment, which he hosts with Vick Hope, the confessed nervous flier said his plane had to be hijacked while traveling for his new BBC show.

North Jordan

On Monday he told Radio 1 listeners: “So I was working last week on this BBC Three show and it was in a very hot country.

“And then this weekend I managed to spend a few days in Spain.

“For the BBC show I had to take many flights and as you know I am a nervous traveler.

“On one of the flights we had to make an emergency landing because all of a sudden the plane started turning left.

“I asked the Spanish airline host if everything was ok and if I should call my mum.

“He was so calm and collected and said, ‘It’s okay. We may or may not have a small left engine fire.’

“I’m starting to flap my wings… he offered me free water.”

Jordan said “a load of fire trucks” were on the runway when the plane landed. Fortunately, the error did not turn out to be an engine fire but a technical problem.

Jordan said: “The experience made me feel a lot better flying because that’s why they have those things, right? To be super safe.

“I was shaking like a leaf but it was a good experience for me.”

Unfortunately, Jordan’s travel troubles didn’t end there as he had to endure long delays after a weekend in Spain.

In an Instagram story, Jordan, 32, posted a video of an almost empty baggage carousel at an airport waiting for his luggage to arrive.

He captioned the video: “Is there anything more soul destroying”.

Lancashire Telegraph: Jordan North waiting for his luggage at the airportJordan North waiting for her luggage at the airport

He also commented on his nearly four-hour flight delay, writing that he was “supposed to land at 9am”.

In another snap, Jordan showed off a photo of his red face with the caption: “Sunburned and knackered.”

Speaking on Radio 1, Jordan said: “I made the silly decision to fall asleep in the sun. I put on factor 30 but I’m so sunburned and in so much pain.

“I couldn’t even get the duvet cover on me last night.”

Jordan was recently announced as the host of a brand new BBC Three show with the working title “Warrior”.

The new series will follow eight young people who feel stuck in a rut as they are cut off from the modern world on a month-long transformational program aimed at improving their health and well-being through extreme physical challenges.

Speaking on the show, Jordan North said: “Almost two years ago, in front of the nation, I was sick on the edge of a cliff and everything changed forever – from there I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and I haven’t looked back since. That’s why I love this show.

“We are pushing eight young people far beyond their comfort zones to become stronger physically and mentally in order to change their lives.”

The Championship window is open again and as clubs seek to strengthen their squads, savvy recruitment is the order of the day.

Once again, free transfers and loan deals will dominate most of the movement in the English second tier. Only those who benefit from parachute payments are likely to spend money.

This makes out-of-contract players much more desirable. There are a lot of championship free agents who are highly sought after and the same goes for the league above.

]]> Burnley extends striker Ashley Barnes’ contract https://lancsycs.org/burnley-extends-striker-ashley-barnes-contract/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 07:16:18 +0000 https://lancsycs.org/burnley-extends-striker-ashley-barnes-contract/

The club have taken the year option on his contract, and Barnes will remain a Claret for the upcoming season in the Championship.

Barnes, 32, was Sean Dyche’s first cash signing in January 2014, leaving Brighton for £450,000, and scored 47 goals in 248 appearances for the club, including 44 in the Premier League.

The former Austria Under-20 international finished the season in Mike Jackson’s starting line-up, selected before the arrival of the £12million Wout Weghorst deadline day for the final three games of the campaign as the Clarets were relegated.

And he kept his composure to score from the spot at Aston Villa in a 1-1 draw in the penultimate game – his first Premier League goal since February 2021.

Following the draw at Villa Park, Barnes had suggested the final game of the season against Newcastle could be his last for the club, with his future hanging in the balance: “The club have trusted me through everything and I hope i can go there and give it back in my last game.

But Burnley have secured his services for another season as they seek to earn a third promotion from the Championship.

With the club’s shortlist imminent, it remains to be seen who else will remain at the club when their deals end.

James Tarkowski will leave for a Premier League club, with Everton pushing hard for his signature, while Ben Mee is also expected to stay in the top flight, having turned down a two-year deal at Turf Moor, having been at the club since the summer of 2011.

The one-year option on Jack Cork’s contract has not been triggered, due to relegation, and he is said to be looking for a two-year contract elsewhere, while Phil Bardsley is expected to join his good friend Wayne Rooney at Derby, and Erik Pieters, Aaron Lennon and Dale Stephens are expected to leave.

Matej Vydra is in talks on a new two-year contract.

The 30-year-old is out of contract, a month into his rehabilitation following surgery for a ruptured cruciate ligament in his knee suffered in the Watford win.

Burnley BID project manager Andrew Dean said: ‘The Burnley Vintage Car Show will bring something a little different to the town center and our aim is for people to come and enjoy the fine machinery on display whilst taking the time to pop into some stores and enjoy a drink or a bite to eat.

“The vehicles will be on display on St James’s Street and also in Charter Walk and we hope to have a real mix of cars from different eras and decades for people to see.

“If you have a classic vehicle or know someone who does, please see the dedicated event page on the Discover Burnley website. Seeing a range of beautiful cars and bikes in the heart of Burnley would be a real sight so s ‘please write to us today’
