Jack Wilshere ended weeks of speculation over his next club by officially putting pen to paper and signing a contract with West Ham United on a reported 3-year contract.

After flirting with a move abroad - clubs in Spain, Italy, and Turkey were all mentioned - Jack Wilshere has decided to stay in England and London signing with West Ham United. The Hammers have been aggressive remaking their squad this summer and Wilshere could be the center piece if he can win his ever-present battle with soft-tissue injuries. With attacking talent ahead of him in Chicharito and Marko Arnautovic and defensive reinforcements across the back line, the Hammers could be a very interesting team to watch this season.

Brighton face an anxious wait while they determine the extent of the injury sustained by striker Glenn Murray during Saturdays 1-1 draw with Swiss side FC St. Gallen.

Last season’s top scorer was replaced shortly after the half-hour mark having failed to shake off what appeared to be a right ankle injury. The Seagulls first pre-season friendly brings to a close their training camp in Austria: "It’s been a very good week and the weather has been very hot. The facilities were excellent, and we were really well looked after," said manager Chris Hughton. Brighton were missing the likes of Mat Ryan, Jose Izquierdo and Leon Balogun who have been given additional time off due to their involvement in Russia while new signings Jason Steele and Florin Andone had minor issues and were not risked. Centre-back Shane Duffy is recovering from groin surgery after aggravating the problem on international duty. Murray will be assessed but initial reports suggest the problem "didn’t look too serious, and [was] perhaps, due to the strains of a week of intense fitness work."

Robbie Brady was forced to sit out of Burnley’s first pre-season friendly, however, the Republic of Ireland international insists: "I’m feeling really good."

Brady has been sidelined for the past seven months after suffering a serious knee injury at Leicester, but the midfielder is close to a return after taking part in the club’s southern Ireland training camp: "I’ve got a few more weeks before the season starts so I’ll be doing everything in my power to get myself in the best condition and hopefully I’ll be ready to go." Speaking ahead of the game against Cork City, manager Sean Dyche decided not to risk the 26-year-old: "We will have to be careful with Robbie. He’s going really well but it is still early in his progress." Steven Defour was also missing from the Clarets line-up after suffering a minor setback; the Belgian is recovering from knee surgery but picked up a minor calf injury. Matt Lowton [groin] was another absentee but James Tarkowski played 45 minutes for the first time since surgery to remedy a Hernia problem.

Jamie Vardy and World Cup sensation Harry Maguire could miss Leicester City’s opening Premier League fixture following their involvement in Russia.

Vardy was nothing more than a bit-part player during the tournament, starting just one game [157 minutes], as Gareth Southgate entrusted captain Harry Kane with England’s goal scoring responsibilities. However, Maguire, came to prominence on the world’s biggest stage following a string of outstanding performances with the centre-back starting every game, bar one, during the tournament. Both players will be given additional time-off to recover from their summer exertions. "It will be difficult to manage all of the international players when they come back because it will be important to find again the good focus and good concentration," manager Claude Puel told LCFC.com. "For some players with England [Vardy and Maguire], perhaps they will come back just 15 days before the beginning of the season, we will see." Leicester kick-off their campaign at Old Trafford as part of Friday night football on August 10.

Marko Arnautovic scored the lone goal of the match as West Ham United claimed a 1-0 friendly victory at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini made seven changes to the starting XI from the 3-2 defeat against FC Winterthur. Andriy Yarmolenko, who made his debut just four days after signing as a Hammer, fellow summer signing centre-back Issa Diop and midfielder Robert Snodgrass were among the changes. Also making his first appearance of the pre-season was Arnautovic, who fired home the winner after 34 minutes. Adrian retained his place in between the sticks and made a pair of saves late on to secure the club's first win of the pre-season. West Ham's next pre-season match is next Saturday against Championship side Preston North End.

Chelsea have announced its first signing of the summer with a permanent move for Napoli midfielder Jorginho.

The 26-year-old has signed a five-year deal to join his former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri, who was appointed at Chelsea earlier today, at Stamford Bridge. Jorginho was a crucial piece in Sarri's midfielder during their time together at Napoli. Between 2015 and 2017, the deep-lying playmaker provided four goals and 11 assists in 108 appearances in all competitions. A deep-lying playmaker known for his technical qualities, Jorginho is expected to be a regular alongside N'Golo Kante given his prior success in Sarri's fast-paced, possessioned-based style of play. Jorginho told Chelsea's official website: ‘I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea. It is not easy to become part of such a big team, so I am very, very happy. I am excited to play in such an intense league, for a team that gives everything to play and win."

Huddersfield Town completed the permanent transfer of Borussia Dortmund defender Erik Durm for an undisclosed fee on Friday.

A 2014 World Cup winner with Germany, Durm is capable of playing on the left or right in fullback or wing-backs roles and will provide competition for Chris Lowe and Florent Hadergjonaj. The 26-year-old made 64 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund between 2013 and 2017, scoring two goals and providing seven assists, but failed to play last season through injury. Durm is well known to Huddersfield boss David Wagner, who signed him for Borussia Dortmund II in 2012 and converted him from a striker to a defender. "It is not every day that you can bring a player of the quality of Erik to your Club," Wagner said. "Obviously I know Erik well from our time together at Dortmund, and he has all the qualities to be a great success in our ‘Terriers Identity'.

West Ham United have announced the permanent signing of Paraguay international defender Fabian Balbuena on a three-year deal.

Balbuena has joined the Irons from Brazilian top-flight side Corinthians for an undisclosed fee, rumoured to be in the region of £6.5 million. An imposing 6ft 2in centre-back with an eye for goal, the 26-year-old scored six goals in 58 appearances in all competitions for Corinthians last year. Balbuena is West Ham's sixth signing of the summer and fourth in defence, after Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop and Lukasz Fabianski. With Winston Reid sidelined for the start of the season, Balbuena will compete with Diop for minutes in central defence. "I’m really excited for this new challenge, and my target is to meet the demands of the Premier League," he said. "Obviously to be at West Ham is an extra motivation, and I want to do my best to help the team."

Bournemouth have rewarded striker Callum Wilson's perseverance and goals with a new contract which will keep him at the club until June 2022.

The 26 year-old is entering his fifth season at the Vitality Stadium, where his 20 goals in his first season were key to promotion and his 19 PL goals over three seasons. Two serious knee injuries blighted his PL career so far but his reputation as a natural goalscorer has still been secured. "I'm delighted to sign. It's nice that the hard work I’ve put in has been rewarded and I'm excited about the future", he said. "During my time at the club, I feel I've developed both physically and mentally. I've progressed and learned a lot about the game and the position I play."

Unai Emery had a successful first outing as Arsenal manager as his club beat Boreham Wood 8-0.

The goals came early and often for Arsenal as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (hat trick) was joined by Reiss Nelson and Alexandre Lacazette as first half scorers. The second half saw Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Eddie Nketiah, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan add to the rally. The competition will surely get stronger but it was a good start for the new boss.

Bournemouth are in the market for a new left-back, with La Liga club Leganes' Diego Rico now in their sights.

Left-back was a problem position for the Cherries in the PL last season as Charlie Daniels failed to match his performance levels of previous seasons whilst makeshift replacements Tyrone Mings, Nathan Ake, and Ryan Fraser struggled. The south coast club initially sought the signing of Celtic's Kieran Tierney but the Scottish champions' asking price of £25m was a bridge too far. Rico, 25, would reportedly be available for £17.5m, his release clause. Rico has been at Leganes for two seasons, where impressive performances have enhanced his stock significantly after he originally signed for just £1 million in 2016.

Chelsea Football Club officially announced the dismissal of manager Antonio Conte on Thursday.

The club won 30 of their 38 matches, a record at the time, and become the first to win the league with a 3-4-3 formation. The Blues claimed its eighth FA Cup trophy in May, but finished fifth in the league last season, missing out on Champions League qualification. Conte is expected to be replaced by former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri, who was named the Serie A Coach of the Year in 2016-17.
