Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland has been given the green light to step up his recovery from a fractured ankle after test results came back all-clear.

Butland missed out on a place at Euro 2016 after breaking his ankle on international duty in March. Now, after three months, the 23-year-old has been told he can move onto the next phase of his rehabilitation with a view to re-joining his team-mates for pre-season. Butland posted an update via his personal Twitter account: "Had my final scan and have been given the all clear by the surgeon! Now I can push on and be fully fit for pre-season!" The news will provide a welcome boost to Stoke boss Mark Hughes whose season took a dramatic downturn following the loss of his No.1 goalkeeper. Back-up Jakob Haugaard conceded 9-times from his four starts, meanwhile, Shay Given ended up losing 4-nil in two of his three games after battling back from a knee injury.

Chris Coleman is expected to provide an update on Ashley Williams during today’s press conference after the Wales skipper injured his shoulder during Saturday’s last-16 win over Northern Ireland.

Williams collided heavily with team-mate Jonny Williams deep into the second half but managed to see the game out after receiving lengthy treatment. However, the Swansea central defender was sent for a scan on Sunday to determine the extent of the damage and is rated as touch and go for the upcoming quarter-final with Belgium. "The next 24 to 48 hours will be key, whether it's bruising and just impact, or whether there's damage to any ligaments or a tear in his muscle," said the Wales boss post-match. "We won't really know until [Sunday], but he was struggling, couldn't move his arm." If Williams fails to recover then West Ham’s James Collins is expected to step into the fray with Aaron Ramsey taking the captains armband.

Alexis Sanchez wasn't on the field for penalties but he and his teammates won the Copa America for the second consecutive summer in penalties over Argentina.

It was a similar script to last summer with New Jersey playing the role of Santiago. It was a hotly contested match that saw two first half red cards and numerous yellows. There were no goals but plenty of talking points. Ultimately it came down to penalties where Arturo Vidal and Lionel Messi traded misses and Lucas Biglia had his attempt saved to make the difference in the match.

Belgium didn't look great in the group stage but they exploded when it mattered in the knockout stages with a 4-0 win over Hungary today.

It was four goals from four players as Belgium went up early through Toby Alderweireld in the tenth minute. They didn't score again until late but then the floodgates opened with goals from Batshuayi, Hazard and Carrasco. On the easier side of the bracket, Belgium have to be the current favorites to at least reach the finals.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez is keen to submit a £10 million bid for Crystal Palace forward Dwight Gayle this summer.

The Crystal Palace striker could be tempted into a change of scenery this summer despite just signing a new four-year contract with the Eagles in April. The 25-year-old scored three goals in 16 Premier League appearances this season but didn't break into the first team much after turning down a move to Bristol City in the winter transfer window. Gayle has emerged as a top target for Benitez in the summer transfer window with players like Moussa Sissoko and Andros Townsend expected to move on.

Germany put on perhaps the most dominant performance by any one country in any one match thus far in Euro 2016, carving up Slovakia 3-0, punching their ticket to the quarterfinal.

A very positive display by the Germans that has to leave spectators thinking they may be the favorites to win this tournament. In the 8th minute, Toni Kroos sent a cross in that was headed away but into the path of Jerome Boateng and the center back fired it low and hard to score the opener. Near halftime, Julian Draxler crossed one to Mario Gomez who was camped out in the six yard box and he finished from short range. The Germans seemed to preserve their energy in the second half, concentrating more on possession, but, just after the hour mark, they put the game to bed when Draxler was left unmarked on a corner kick and fired home on the volley. The only negative came from Mesut Ozil, who was unable to convert a penalty chance, but he was doing fine otherwise in open play.

It appears as though Stoke City will emerge as the victor in the Premier League race to sign Saido Berahino this summer.

Reports across England claim West Bromwich Albion has accepted a £16 million bid for the 22-year-old as the Potters will offer a long-term contract and a wage package worth £70,000-a-week. The Baggies originally shot down Stoke City's offer of £15 million earlier this week in the hopes of getting more in return for Berahino. But after failing to land a better deal, they came back to the bargaining table. Berahino scored only four Premier League goals last season after 14 the season prior, drawing £20 million-plus bids from Spurs and Newcastle.

Swansea City have reached an agreement with Eredivisie side Ajax for the transfer of center back Mike van der Hoorn for a fee of around £2m.

The 23-year-old Dutch defender will travel to Wales this week to hash out the terms of his deal with the Swans, but, unless there is some sort of unforeseen faux pas, he will become the first signing of the summer for Franseco Guidolin. van der Hoorn would not likely be an automatic starter from the jump for Swansea, but Federico Fernandez would seem the likeliest to be under threat with Ashley Williams a mainstay as the club captain. The Jacks still have Jordi Amat in the mix as well. It will be a situation to monitor in preseason as there could be a bargain player to emerge as Williams' partner this coming fantasy season.
