Sunderland has officially confirmed David Moyes as the club's next manager after signing him to a four-year contract.

The news comes just one day after former manager Sam Allardyce left the club after less than one year to become the head coach of the England national team. Moyes, who was sacked by Real Sociedad last season, arrives at the club following previous stints in the Premier League with Everton and Manchester United. Said the new manager: "I am delighted to have joined Sunderland. I am relishing the challenge and excited by the opportunity. I have taken over a big British club, with a great support and I’m looking forward to working in the Premier League again."

Benik Afobe suffered a knee injury in training during AFC Bournemouth's current preseason tour in the United States and the striker will have a scan when the club returns home

According to Eddie Howe, Afobe "just took a knock to the knee" so it was not a major contact injury and the odds are it isn't too serious. While that means Afobe may not miss any time when the regular season begins, it eliminates his chances of impressing his manager in the preseason in the fight for regular playing time when league play gets underway. Callum Wilson has already bagged a brace on this current tour and looks to be the clear-cut first choice striker when the Cherries open up against Manchester United in three weeks' time.

Steve Cook could miss up-to two weeks after he pulled out of the recent friendly win over Minnesota as a precaution.

Cook felt discomfort in his thigh during the warm-up on Wednesday and Eddie Howe decided not to risk his defender in the hope of avoiding any long term damage. Initial tests reveal that the 25-year-old -- who started all but two of last season’s Premier League matches – will only be side-lined for a fortnight. Meanwhile, there was better news regarding striker Benik Afobe who was injured in training recently: "Benik had a scan and everything looks good with the knee so we’re hopeful it’s not too bad," revealed the Bournemouth boss. Baily Cargill [groin] and Nathan Ake [rested] will also miss the game against Portsmouth on Saturday, but Andrew Surman and Ryan Fraser could return after they were omitted from the squad last time out.

John Stones and Phil Jagielka will miss Everton’s first pre-season friendly at Barnsley on Saturday through injury.

While Stones has been linked with a summer move away, the club have been keen to stress that a minor muscular problem has denied him a return to his former stomping ground, although he could be back on Tuesday to face MK Dons. Jagielka on the other hand, looks to have suffered a recurrence of the hamstring strain which hampered his progress during the latter stages of the 2015/16 campaign. However, Ronald Koeman will be able to call upon the services those involved in France at Euro 2016 -- Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy, Aiden McGeady and Ross Barkley – with the new boss promising the quartet at least 45 minutes of action.

The FA has confirmed Sunderland coach Sam Allardyce as England's next manager following the resignation of Roy Hodgson.

Allardyce leaves Wearside after less than a year at the helm of Sunderland, who he led out of the relegation zone last season by two points over rival Newcastle. The manager signed a two-year contract to lead England through the next World Cup: "I will do everything I can to help England do well and give our nation the success our fans deserve. Above all, we have to make the people and the whole country proud. While my main focus will be on the senior team and getting positive results, I want to add my influence to the great work being done across the development teams at St. George’s Park – a facility I have used with my previous clubs"

In addition to an injury crisis, Hull City now has a managerial crisis after confirming that manager Steve Bruce has left the club.

The former Manchester United player has KCOM Stadium after four years at the club, which included two promotions into the Premier League, one relegation and one appearance in the FA Cup final. The club announced the decision was by mutual consent after Bruce failed to land the England managerial job while up against Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce, who left Wearside on the same day. The Tigers will now start their search for a new manager while assistant Mike Phelan takes over preseason arrangements.

Liverpool has officially unveiled Newcastle midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum as the club's latest signing in a £25 million move.

The Dutch international arrives at Anfield as the club's seventh signing of the summer after scoring 11 goals while playing in every Premier League game last season. Wijnaldum leaves Tyneside after arriving last summer in a £14.5 million move from PSV Eindhoven. Said manager Jurgen Klopp: "[He seems] a great man - from the outside - because I don’t know how he works yet and I have to work with him. [But] I always love to watch him, his passion as a trainer, I like how he enjoys the game. He gives something back to the group [with his passion] so I look forward to working with him."

Arsenal traveled to the north of France for their pre-season opener and drew 1-1 with Lens on Friday.

It was a line-up comprised of more reserves and fringe first-teamers than it was a full strength squad. Per Mertesacker and Nacho Monreal were the only two likely first choice starters that featured with Martinez, Chambers, Debuchy, Elneny, Coquelin, Walcott, Iwobi, Akpom, and Reine-Adelaide joining them. With much of the squad still recovering from summer tournaments it was a lackluster performance but it did come with a real highlight of an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain goal from a tight angle.
