I think that Burnley game will be away too because of the Anfield construction. Will be a good test to start the season.

Vardy set to reject Arsenal & stay at Leicester. No final decision yet but favouring #LCFC. #AFC won't improve offer, pursuing other options

I think Vardy is about to seal his statue outside the Leicester grounds. Deliver them a title and stay with the club. Wonderful.

Victor Wanyama is about to join Tottenham for just 12m according to Sky. That's a ridiculous piece of business ... Levy must have some compromising pictures of Ralph Krueger or whoever is in charge of transfers at Southampton right now. No wonder Koeman wanted to move.

Meanwhile you see the first ridiculous reaction to the new TV deal. Leicester have been trying to sign Troy Deeney for a while, but Watford have again rejected the latest bid which was 25m according to Sky. Unbelievable stuff ... 25 million pounds doesn't even get you Troy ####ing Deeney! Might as well stop negotiating transfers with other EPL clubs and focus on buying foreign players if that's what the English market is going to look like ...

Yeah I like that Wanyama deal. He's a good back-up for Spurs and the price is right. I can't see that 25mm being worth it for Deeney and I like that guy. That just seems crazy for a 30 year old.

As long as the money was close it always made more sense to stay with Leicester. Arsenal play such a different style that while he's a good scorer, he probably has a lot fewer chances because of how Arsenal play. Plus now he probably gets a statue outside the stadium in Leicester.

Dammit, looks like City are gearing up to buy Leroy Sane. That will likely be a good bit of business. I wish Low would play him for Germany.

given that Schalke have now bought Breel Embolo for around 27m, I think it's only a matter of time before Sane to City is done. That one really sucks.

There's a German guy named Leroy? How has he not been made captain of Germany?

meanwhile, Henrikh Mkhitaryan to United edges closer. Bild say United have made a bid of €36m, but Dortmund want €40m. Should be sorted soon enough.

Brexit is going to have a big effect on the PL as well. Lots of players from Spain, France etc. who are currently playing in the PL probably wouldn't even get a work permit, since it's normally only granted if you're an established player who has played in over 30 percent of your national teams games in the last two years. In any case, buying young EU talents should be impossible now.

That's really interesting actually. Any links on that or has anything been written going through this?
