Emmanuel Adebayor has been asked to train with Tottenham's reserves.

Adebayor returned to London towards the end of last month, but he has gone back to Africa, for what Andre Villas-Boas describes as "personal reasons". A slightly agitated AVB added "Up to when I find it appropriate, he will train with the development team.", which suggests all is not well between the pair. There seems little chance of the Togo international getting ahead of Roberto Soldado or Jermain Defoe any time soon.

Manchester City got their International Champions Cup campaign off to a flying start with an impressive 5-1 win over AC Milan at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

It's only a friendly tournament, but this was an impressive performance by Manuel Pellegrini's men against a strong AC Milan side. Stevan Jovetic was the star, scoring twice and picking up the man of the match award. With Alvaro Negredo out injured for the next few months and Sergio Aguero still nursing recurring hamstring and groin problems, Jovetic will be expected to step up and play a more prominent role this season, and he's got his pre-season off to a flying start. Scott Sinclair continued his decent form with another pre-season goal, while Jesus Navas and Kelechi Iheanacho added the others.

Jan Vertonghen insists he wants to remain with Tottenham and has confirmed he has been offered a new five-year contract to remain with the north London club.

Barcelona have been linked with a move for Vertonghen, but the defender has been very positive about his future with Spurs in recent interviews and this is the first clear indication that he plans to follow Hugo Lloris by signing a new five-year contract. The 27-year-old Belgium international also revealed he is yet to return to pre-season training following the World Cup because of an ankle injury, which could puts his participation in the opening weeks of the Premier League season in doubt.

Arsenal have announced what could be a great bargain by signing Nice and Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina on a permanent deal for £3m.

Wojciech Szcesny has continued to improve and grow into the role of Arsenal's #1 goalkeeper, what he hasn't had in recent years is a player capable of mounting a legitimate challenge for his place. In David Ospina, Arsenal has a legitimate alternative and Szczesny has potential competition. With only three weeks until the start of the season it seems likely that Szczesny will start the season as the starter but should he falter or his development stall, it is possible Ospina will be given a run as the first team starter. This move significantly devalues Szczesny in draft/unique ownership-type fantasy leagues.

Dejan Lovren has completed his move to Liverpool for a fee of £20m.

Liverpool have acquired yet another Southampton player, this time center-back Dejan Lovren. Lovren is a very solid defender who had an incredible season last year and should help Liverpool's average defense. Liverpool were great in attack last season but can certainly use an upgrade in defense and Lovren should provide immediate help. Lovren will likely be a starter on day one and should have solid fantasy value throughout the season.

Both Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton and forward/winger Marvin Emnes are struggling with knee injuries that have ruled them out for the Swans Premier League opener against Manchester United.

Britton's specific injury is a bone bruise to the knee while Emnes is dealing with a cartilage issue. Britton was most likely to play a part in the season opener with Emnes destined for a bench role at best would he be available. Neither are fantasy options nor does their absence create any.

Liverpool have pulled out of a deal to sign QPR striker Loic Remy.

While no official statement has been released, the majority of media outlets are reporting that Remy failed his medical, leaving Liverpool no choice but to withdraw their £8.5million offer. However, Sky Sports have suggested that Fabio Borini's refusal to move to Sunderland on a permanent basis is the real sticking point, with Brendan Rodgers unable to move for another striker when he already has Borini, Daniel Sturridge and Ricky Lambert in his squad. Whatever the reason, the collapse leaves Remy's career in limbo.

Tottenham completed their pre-season tour of North American with a comfortable win over Chicago Fire.

This was the final game of Tottenham's US tour and they leave undefeated after drawing with Seattle, and beating Toronto and Chicago. An early goal from Harry Kane and a late goal from Arron Lennon sealed a 2-0 win here, with Erik Lamela impressive again. Kane got a fair amount of pitch time towards the end of last season and is expected to play a key squad role this season, with Mauricio Pochettino keen to give the younger players an opportunity to impress as he did at Southampton.

Sunderland have signed Netherlands international Patrick van Aanholt from Chelsea for an undisclosed fee.

This is an important deal for Sunderland, who had no recognised left-back in their squad after Marcos Alonso's loan deal ended back in May. van Aanholt never made the grade at Chelsea, spending the past two seasons out on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, but he is highly regarded in Holland and very nearly made the Dutch World Cup squad. It will be interesting to see how he copes back in the Premier League, as he could be a fantasy option worth keeping an eye on if he secures a starting spot at the Stadium of Light.

Adam Lallana suffered a knee injury in training that is set to keep him sidelined at the start of the 2014/2015 Premier League season,

Lallana has ligament damage after training in Boston as the Reds are in the midst of their preseason tour in the United States. A fantasy stud last season, managers will now need to wait on his return to invest. It is probably best to take a wait-and-see approach regardless as his role in Liverpool's side may very well not be as productive as his days in Southampton. In recent years, midfielders like Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing made the jump to Anfield after a great year with a smaller club and failed miserably.

This one has been simmering for a month but reports on BBC.com and elsewhere have Calum Chambers completing a medical with Arsenal and agreeing to personal terms in advance of finalizing a move to the Emirates for £12Million.

Able to play center back and right back, the 19-year-old will likely provide cover for newly signed Mathieu Debuchy and potentially allow Arsene Wenger to sell Thomas Vermaelen to Manchester United or Barcelona. Chambers represents much-needed depth and youth in defense. Debuchy is already 28 so it may not be long until Chambers is challenging for the starting right back role.

Chelsea have confirmed the return of Didier Drogba on a one year deal.

Drogba is a Chelsea legend, having won a Champions League, three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, and two League Cups during his time at the club. He has scored 157 goals in 341 Chelsea matches and is loved by Blues fans around the world. Drogba will probably be used off the bench as he is 36 years old and on the decline of his career. Despite that, he remains a solid target man who can be used at end of games when Chelsea need to get a goal. Using Drogba in fantasy will be a risky move unless Diego Costa suffers an injury.
