Newcastle’s owners injected £167.9m of equity funding into club after takeover

Newcastle United’s owners have injected £167.9 million worth of equity funding into the club — partly to cover the club’s £112 million net transfer spend across the 2021-22 season.

The club’s latest accounts, which comprise the 11 months up to June 30, 2021, outline an operating loss of £13.7 million from a COVID-19 affected campaign, when Newcastle played 18 home matches behind closed doors and one with just 10,000 fans present inside St James’ Park.

Salford sack manager Gary Bowyer

Sky Bet League Two side Salford have sacked manager Gary Bowyer.

Bowyer was appointed as Richie Wellens’ replacement on an interim basis in March last year before signing a two-year deal in May after opting not to return to his post as Derby’s Under-23s boss, but has parted company with the club following a meeting on Tuesday.

A statement on Salford’s website said: “A meeting was held earlier today and the club has made the decision to terminate Gary Bowyer’s contract along with assistant manager Billy Barr.

“The club would like to thank Gary and Billy for their hard work over the last season, and we wish them all the best for their future roles within football.

“An announcement regarding the role of first team manager will be made in due course.”

Rangers striker Kemar Roofe available for Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt

Rangers striker Kemar Roofe is available for their Europa League final against Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday.

Roofe, 29, sustained a knee injury during Rangers’ Scottish Cup semi-final win against Celtic in April.

Manager Giovanni van Bronckorst had initially hoped Roofe would be fit for the second leg of Rangers’ Europa League semi-final against RB Leipzig, but the former Leeds United man has instead missed seven matches due to the injury.

Van Bronckhorst, however, confirmed on Tuesday that Roofe was an option ahead of the final in Seville.

Jordan Nobbs missed out on Euros squad after picking up knee ligament strain

Arsenal midfielder Jordan Nobbs has missed out on a place in the England squad for the 2022 Women’s Euros this summer due to a knee injury.

The 29-year-old suffered a low-grade knee ligament strain during Arsenal’s 7-0 win against Aston Villa on May 1, which ruled her out for the remainder of her club’s season. The injury has meant that she has also not been included in England’s 28-man provisional squad for this summer’s tournament.

It is understood that while Nobbs is unavailable for the Euros, Arsenal expect her to be fit when pre-season training begins.

England Women provisional squad for Euro 22: Houghton included while Nobbs misses out with injury

Jordan Nobbs has been ruled out of the 2022 UEFA Women’s Euros, hosted in England, this summer with a knee injury while former captain Steph Houghton has been included in Sarina Wiegman’s 28-player provisional squad.

Nobbs, 29, has had bad fortune with injury leading up to major tournaments. She missed the 2019 Women’s World Cup after rupturing her anterior cruciate ligament in November 2018, missed last summer’s Olympics and will not play a part in this home Euros.

Houghton, 33, meanwhile, has been working her way back up to fitness having undergone surgery on her achilles in February. She has not played for Manchester City since January 23.

Arteta takes responsibility for Arsenal’s late-season drop in form

Mikel Arteta has taken responsibility for Arsenal’s drop in form in their push for a Champions League place.

The north London club lost 3-0 to Tottenham Hotspur last Thursday before falling to a 2-0 defeat by Newcastle on Monday night.

Those two results, combined with Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Burnley, means Antonio Conte’s side need just a draw at already-relegated Norwich to likely secure a place in the top four. Arteta’s side are two points adrift of Tottenham.

Derby administrators exchange contracts with Chris Kirchner over proposed sale

US businessman Chris Kirchner is poised to complete his proposed takeover of Derby County after exchanging contracts to purchase the club from Quantuma, the club’s administrators.

The contract is conditional on the sale of Pride Park, owned by former chairman Mel Morris, and they are yet to find an agreement for its purchase. Morris is holding out for at least £24 million to pay off MSD Holdings UK, which has several loans mortgaged against the stadium.

Kirchner initially recruited the help of Derby City Council to buy the stadium, but after concerns with their time consuming due diligence process, he has opted to privately fund the purchase of the stadium.
