Hull City midfielder and top goal scorer Robert Snodgrass could be on his way out of Humberside after the club have accepted bids from both Burnley and West Ham United. With both bids believed to be around the £10 million, it is now down to the player to discuss personal terms with either club before agreeing a deal away from the Tigers. The 29-year-old Scottish International has scored 7 goals so far this season, and has already been the subject of a £6 million offer from West Ham, which was rejected earlier this month. Snodgrass will be the 2nd midfielder to leave the Tigers during the transfer market, as new boss Marco Silva has already sold Jake Livermore to West Brom for an undisclosed fee.
Long term Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will accept an F.A. misconduct charge following his dismissal to the stands during his team’s recent 2-1 league win over Burnley. The French man was charged with verbally abusing and pushing fourth official Anthony Taylor, after match referee Jon Moss awarded a 93rd minute penalty to Burnley, who trailed 1-0 at the time. After Moss had sent Wenger to the stands, the Arsenal boss only went as far as the tunnel and, when approached and asked to move by fourth official Taylor, Wenger, who has accepted the charge, was seen to ‘push back against him’.
Real Madrid’s boss Zinedine Zidane saw his team crash out of the Copa del Ray, losing 4-3 on aggregate to Celta Vigo. Although they drew 2-2 on the night, with goals from Ronaldo and Lucas Vazquez, the La Liga leaders dropped out at the quarter final stage. This result means that the team has only won one of their last 5 games since losing their 40 match unbeaten run to Sevilla earlier this month
