Manchester City have completed the signing of Portugal right-back Joao Cancelo from Juventus, with Brazil full-back Danilo heading the other way.

Cancelo, 25, has signed a six-year-deal at the Etihad Stadium.

“City are a fantastic club, with a brilliant manager and I am delighted to be here,” Cancelo said after agreeing personal terms and completing his medical.

While partly a swap involving Danilo, figures released by Juventus indicated that the Italian club have also received  €28million to complete the deal.

Everton have signed Monaco right-back Djibril Sidibe on a season-long loan deal.

The 27-year-old becomes the sixth new arrival at Goodison Park this summer after goalkeeper Jonas Lossl, midfielders Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin, and striker Moise Kean.

“Djibril has fantastic experience, winning titles and playing many matches in a competitive league,” Everton boss Marco Silva told the club website.

Jenkinson spent eight years at Arsenal.

“He is a World Cup winner and he has the hunger to achieve much more in his career.”

Carl Jenkinson has bid a fond farewell to Arsenal after ending his eight-year stay to join Championship Nottingham Forest.

The 27-year-old defender, a senior England international who represented both the Three Lions and Finland at youth level, has moved for an undisclosed fee and signed a three-year contract at the City Ground.

Writing on his official Instagram account, Jenkinson said: “This is a message that is hard to write, so I’m going to keep it short.

“I’m leaving Arsenal in pursuit of a new challenge and a fresh start, and ultimately to play regular football again.

“I can’t really put into words what it has meant to me to play for this club, but what I can say is I have truly lived my dream.”

Crystal Palace have signed Spanish midfielder Victor Camarasa on loan from La Liga club Real Betis.

The 25-year-old will spend the season at Selhurst Park, with the Eagles then having the option to buy him next summer.

“I’m delighted that we’ve signed Victor and we think he will further improve the quality of our squad,” Palace chairman Steve Parish told the club’s official website.

“He is a talented, exciting player who will offer us creativity in the midfield.”

Camarasa scored five Premier League goals on loan at Cardiff City last season.

Laurent Koscielny has sent a message to disgruntled Arsenal fans following his controversial move to Bordeaux.

The 33-year-old defender signed for the French club on Tuesday having refused to travel on Arsenal’s pre-season tour to the USA as he tried to secure a transfer.

His unveiling video also angered some Gunners fans – and former striker Ian Wright – after he took off an Arsenal shirt to reveal a Bordeaux strip underneath.

Koscielny wrote on Instagram: “After nine years spent at Arsenal, I took the decision to leave. I have spent wonderful years with this club, nine years during which I learned, evolved, grew up.

“This experience made me the player I am today. My decision to leave has been discussed for months with my club, my team-mates, my coach, and it has been a well-thought decision.

“I see this departure like a new turning point in my life as a player but also in in my life as a man and a family man.

“However I hope you understand, and in any case I cannot be thankful enough for these years past at Arsenal. I am aware of everything that the club and you supporters have brought to me.

“But it is time for me to go home so today my will is to join the @girondins (Bordeaux). This is a new challenge that I count on taking with determination.”

Koscielny, who has been capped 51 times by France, joined Arsenal from Lorient in July 2010 and made 353 appearances, winning three FA Cups.
Wright hit out at the French club’s unveiling video, claiming Koscielny showed a “level of disrespect” and accusing him of “trying to have a dig”.

Moise Kean has extra motivation to shine for Everton following the reaction from fans since he joined the club.

The 19-year-old Italy forward completed a switch from Juventus on Sunday on a five-year contract.

In April, Kean was subjected to racist abuse from the stands in a 2-0 Serie A win at Cagliari.

When he scored the second goal late on he stood facing the crowd with his arms spread, something he later posted an image of on Instagram, with the caption: “The best way to respond to racism #notoracism”.


A JustGiving page was created on Sunday which said it was to fund a banner for Goodison Park that will “show Kean we are a family at Everton and united against racism.”








On Tuesday afternoon it had over 200 supporters, with the the total raised more than £2,500 – the target had been £1,000.





When asked about that at a press conference on Tuesday, Kean said: “It is beautiful. Racism is horrendous and we have to fight hard against racism. I’m going to repay the fans for all they do for me.


“I am feeling even more motivated and willing to repay them by training at 100 per cent of my ability and giving the maximum I can.”


Regarding the general sense of excitement among Everton supporters over his arrival that has been evident on social media, Kean added: “I’ve had a look and I think fans should be repaid on the field, giving 100 per cent of my ability to repay them, playing as good as I can, at the best of my ability.”
