Leicester City midfielder Harvey Barnes has signed a new four-year deal with the club.

The 19-year-old Academy graduated has been rewarded with a new contract after a breakthrough season in 2016/17, during which he made his professional debut against FC Porto in the UEFA Champions League. Barnes also starred in a half-season loan at MK Dons, winning both MK's Young Player of the Season and Leicester's Development Squad Player of the Season before finishing top scorer as the England U-20s won the Toulon Tournament this summer. Harvey told LCFC TV: "I’m hoping to push on through each of these four years. I’ve been with this Club from a young age and more recently I’ve been introduced to the first team and so far, my experience has been nothing but positive."

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has joined Stoke City on a season-long loan deal.

The French international has signed new six-year contract with Chelsea as he joins the Potters on loan for the 2017/18 campaign. Zouma, who joined Chelsea from Saint-Etienne in January 2014, completes the temporary move to the Bet365 Stadium in search of regular first-team football. The 22-year-old was limited to 13 appearances last season, having recovered from a serious knee injury in 2016, and was not expected to see many starts this term despite the departures of John Terry and Nathan Ake. Stoke City boss Mark Hughes told the club's official website: "Kurt is undoubtedly one of the most talented young defenders in the game, so naturally his arrival will enhance our playing squad for the forthcoming campaign. We have prioritised adding further strength in depth to defensive positions this summer, and we have certainly done that by fending off any number of clubs who were all interested in taking Kurt on loan."

Romelu Lukaku was once again on the score sheet as Manchester United beat their city rivals in Texas during the early hours of Friday morning.

The two sides met as part of the International Champions Cup and it was the red half of Manchester who managed to steal the early season bragging rights with a 2-0 victory. Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring, his second in successive games while Marcus Rashford was also on hand to double the lead before the break. After the match, Jose Mourinho was quick to play down the significance of the result, although Paul Pogba "whether it is a friendly game or not, you want to win against Manchester City" took a decidedly different view: "It was a very good training session," said the United mboss. "That is what we thought when we organised the pre-season. Two matches against MLS teams and then we move on to the best teams in the world. It was a good intensity, the players are tired, I am really pleased and I am sure Pep [Guardiola] is the same."

Aleksander Kolarov will move to Serie A club Roma once Pep Guardiola has rubber stamped the deal.

The Serbian international is currently on City’s pre-season tour of America but if Guardiola can close the deal on Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy, then Kolarov has been given permission to return to the Italian capital. "He helped me a lot last season in terms of many, many things. But he had a big chance to go back to Rome where he was before and he spoke to me, the club and asked me to leave. I don't like to stay with players who don't want to stay. That's why it’s the best option for everybody." An initial offer of £44.5 million for Mendy has been rejected, but City will go back with an improved bid as Monaco demand closer to £50m, the fee paid for Kyle Walker.

David Silva is expected to miss the International Champions Cup game against city rivals United in Texas on Friday.

City take on Jose Mourinho's men at the NRG Stadium in the early hours [3:05am BST] but the Spanish playmaker is expected to sit this one out after picking up a groin injury in training. Pep Guardiola is not prepared to take any risks with the start of the new Premier League season a little over 3 weeks away and Silva will be rested as a precaution. However, new signings Kyle Walker and goalkeeper Ederson could be in line to make their debuts while Gabriel Jesus has recovered from the fractured eye socket he sustained playing for Brazil. Leroy Sane is also back following nose surgery but Ilkay Gundogan is still missing due to a serious knee ligament injury [ruptured ACL].

Glenn Whelan has officially moved from Stoke City to Aston Villa on a permanent transfer in a deal that could net the Potters £2 million if incentives are hit.

The news that the 33-year-old Whelan is leaving the Britannia Stadium for Villa Park seems to fan the rumors that Mark Hughes has a new holding midfielder lined up in the form of former Aston Villa man Fabian Delph. Stoke City have been rivaling West Brom for Delph's signature in a move reported to be worth around £10 million and this is likely an indication that the Potters have won the race.

West Ham United have been dealt an injury blow after midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate suffered a 'freak' knee injury that will force him to miss the start of the season.

The Senegal international suffered the injury during the club's pre-season training camp in Austria and, according to manager Slaven Bilic, will be out of action for around a month. Kouyate was a key man last season and will be greatly missed with the Hammers first three matches of the term all away fixtures, including the opener against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Speaking to Mirror Football on Kouyate's injury, Bilic said: "It is a big shame that Cheikhou got injured in one of our early training sessions and it was out of nothing. He did his knee and he is going to miss the first few games of the season. It was a freak injury and it is a blow for us. He doesn't need surgery and the injury is not a bad one, but he needs rehab now."

Southampton announced a new contract for goalkeeper Fraser Forster to tie him down until the summer of 2022.

Just last summer, Forster signed a new contract through the 2021 season, but the club decided to offer him another long-term deal. The 29-year-old has established himself as one of the most reliable keepers in the Premier League after playing every minute of every match last season. Said director of football Les Reed: "We are extremely pleased to have strengthened our commitment with Fraser, who has been an integral part of our team over the past three seasons. He has already established himself as one of the leading keepers in the Premier League and, at 29, we believe he still has his best years ahead of him, not just for us but also the national team."
