Tottenham have turned their attentions to tying Jan Vertonghen to a new contract.

Following hot on the heals of the Hugo Lloris deal, Spurs are now focusing on a similar extension for Vertonghen, who has two years remaining on his current contract. The defender is coming off a strong World Cup and has been linked to a move to Barcelona, but the club are hoping to tie him down with a big increase on his current wages. Vertonghen's body language was poor last season but he has made positive noises about new manager Mauricio Pochettinho arrival and the Daily Mail are suggesting a new deal is likely to happen.

Southampton have found an immediate replacement for Luke Shaw in the form of a one year loan for Chelsea's Ryan Bertrand for the upcoming season.

In the wake of the mass exodus at Southampton, the Saints are slowly starting to rebuild. They made earlier moves for Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pelle for the attacking end but with Luke Shaw and Dejan Lovern gone there is an urgent need to address the defense as well. Southampton made their first move in that direction with the loan signing of Ryan Bertrand from Chelsea. On loan at Aston Villa for the second half of last season, the left back wasn't exceptional by any stretch of the imagination but it would have been hard to be exceptional at Villa last season no matter how good you were as a player. Bertrand will likely get first crack at the starting role and be a solid fantasy option when the Saints have favorable match-ups.

Everton have called a press conference for 7pm GMT to, in all likelihood, announce the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea on a permanent move.

Lukaku recently tweeted that it was "time to start a new chapter" as he was on a plane heading for the UK and the press conference announcement connects the dots as Everton appear to have gotten a permanent deal done. Early reports suggest a five year deal is in place.

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has said he wants to stay at the club for "as long as possible".

After numerous summer rumours suggested Yaya Toure was unhappy at City - with his agent Dimitry Seluk suggesting the club had ignored the midfielder's birthday - it appears the nonsense has come to an end. In his latest interview, Toure is quoted as saying "For me I was always quiet and my decision is that I will stay at Manchester City for as long as possible."

Harry Redknapp has urged Adel Taarabt to 'get himself in shape', if the playmaker wants to have a future at Queens Park Rangers.

Taarabt continues to live up to his reputation. While blessed with huge amount of talent, the midfielder has never been able to settle at a club, often falling foul of management, team-mates and fans. Taarabt spent the first half of last season on loan at Fulham before taking in the second half of the campaign with AC Milan, but he reported to QPR for pre-season in bad shape. Redknapp revealed the midfielder was unfit and has yet to train with his London club, so it will be some time before he sees Premier League action this season. Don't rule out a move away before the transfer window shuts at the end of August.

Hull City announced the dual signings of young defenders Harry Maguire and Andrew Robertson from Sheffield United and Dundee United respectively.

In his first year back in the big time, Steve Bruce's transfer approach was all about buying known Premier League quantities who could improve Hull City's chances of staying up. With today's dual-signing of Maguire and Robertson and the earlier signing of Tom Ince, Steve Bruce has departed from that approach and started to stock the shelves with younger players with talent. Maguire has been scouted by Manchester United and Chelsea at times and has been compared favorably to John Terry as a young player. Robertson, named Scotland Young Player of the Year this past season, is a left back who plays solid defense and has scored some spectacular goals on his rapid rise from amateur football to the Scotish national team and now the Premier League. Both will likely be eased in behind veterans but there is some excitement about Hull's after this summer.

Morgan Schneiderlin and Jay Rodriguez are understood to be close to linking-up with former manager Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham

All major UK sports media outlets are running with this story today, with a BBC reporter going as far as suggesting personal terms have been agreed, despite the fact Rodriguez is recovering from a serious knee injury. Schneiderlin has become one of the Premier League's most complete central midfield players and had been linked to Arsenal all summer, so his capture would be quite the coup for Spurs, who have had a quiet summer in comparison to their rivals. Southampton's squad has been decimated since the end of last season, losing their manager and all key players, as the board have decided to cash in on their most important assets. Pochettino, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Calum Chambers, Luke Shaw and Ricky Lambert have already moved on and it's looking like an extremely difficult campaign ahead for new manager Ronald Koeman.

Calum Chambers is officially an Arsenal player according to the club's Twitter feed. He joins Alexis Sanchez, Mathieu Debuchy, and David Ospina as confirmed new arrivals at the club.

Mesut Ozil's late capture last summer may have been the initial statement of intent but Arsenal have come out of the gates early and with intent in this summer's transfer window. Most supporters and pundits listed their needs as a forward, right back, reserve goalkeeper, defensive cover and holding midfielder to start the summer. With three weeks left before the season kicks off and five weeks remaining in the summer transfer period the club has addressed four of the five needs in style. Calum Chambers represents both defensive depth and versatility with a CV that resembles Phil Jones with the ability to play right back, center back and holding midfield. It is unlikely that the Southampton product will feature regularly this season but he will likely be groomed behind Debuchy and the Koscielny/Mertesacker pairing for a season or two before getting his chance to start.

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.
