Newcastle have £13.75m bid accepted for Norwich star; Arsenal man to follow

The 12-times capped Northern Ireland international was the subject of a failed £8m offer from Liverpool earlier this summer.  Jurgen Klopp had identified Lewis as the man he wanted to provide competition to Andy Robertson.

However, Norwich were said to be holding out for nearer £20m and rejected Liverpool’s approach. The Reds have since brought in Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos.

Liverpool’s failure to agree a deal, however, has opened the door for Newcastle. They are in the markey for a new left-back after Danny Rose returned to Tottenham.

The Athletic is now reporting that Norwich have accepted a bid from Newcastle of £13.75million. That deal will rise ‘significantly’ depending on performance-related add-ons.

The report also claims Norwich will insert a sell-on clause into the contract.

It will be Newcastle’s first signing this summer, following the collapse of their Saudi Arabian-backed takeover.

Everton have completed the signing of Brazil midfielder Allan from Napoli on a three-year contract.

Everton have completed the signing of Brazil midfielder Allan from Napoli on a three-year contract.

The 29-year-old moves to Goodison Park for an undisclosed fee, but Everton have paid €25m (£22.3m) plus an additional €3m (£2.7m) in incentives, according to Sky in Italy.
The move sees Allan, who has been capped nine times by Brazil, reunite with Carlo Ancelotti at Everton, having previously worked under the Italian for two seasons while he was in charge of Napoli.
The draw of Ancelotti saw Everton beat off competition from Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund to capture Allan, who spent five years in Naples.
“It is a real pleasure to sign for Everton. I am immensely happy to be here,” Allan told evertontv. “I hope, like I have done in my entire career, I contribute with my performances together with my teammates and that I put in some great games, great performances and win important things.

“It is a club with a rich history in the Premier League, has real ambition and then there is Professor Ancelotti. He has done everything possible to bring me here.

“It is the size of the club and the name of the coach which means you don’t think twice about coming to Everton.”

Allan started his career at Vasco da Gama in his home country before moving to Serie A with Udinese in 2012.

Done Deal: Arsenal complete signing of Dani Ceballos.

The 24-year-old spent last season on loan at the Emirates Stadium and after an inconsistent start to life in north London, the midfielder became an integral part of Mikel Arteta’s side during the second half of the campaign.

Ceballos formed an impressive partnership alongside Granit Xhaka in the middle of the park and played a key role in helping Arsenal win their 14th FA Cup with excellent performances against Sheffield United, Man City and Chelsea.

The Spanish international returned to Madrid this summer but with a regular start spot in Zinedine Zidane’s side looking unlikely, Ceballos decided another loan move away from the Bernabeu was the best decision.

He had other offers to remain in La Liga but Arteta convinced Ceballos to return to Arsenal and the midfielder reportedly flew-in to North London on Thursday to undergo his medical and put the finishing touches on his move.

The formalities were swiftly completed and Arsenal confirmed on their official website on Friday night that Ceballos has now completed his move to the Emirates and has rejoined the club on another season-long loan from Madrid

BBnaija 2020: I wonder if I’ll ever become Head of House – Laycon cries to Biggie

Big Brother Naija lockdown housemate, Laycon, has told Biggie that he is seriously pained and feels like crying for having failed to win the Head of House challenge for once.

Laycon said it is a shame that he will again be standing this Sunday as one of the housemates up for possible eviction.

Erica won the Head of House challenge for this week and picked Prince as her deputy which means that both housemates are saved from possible eviction.

And Laycon said he is still wondering if he will ever step into the HoH room before leaving the lockdown house.

Speaking at his diary session on Friday, Laycon tells Biggie, “This week has been going successfully except for the Head of House thing.

“I’m really pained about that. To be frank, Big Brother, I feel like crying and [I ask myself], am I really going to step into that place [HoH room] before leaving this place?
“I don’t know… I don’t know. It’s painful…because if I had won, I won’t be up for eviction and another friend of mine won’t be up for eviction. There won’t be that fear of Sunday.”

BBNaija 2020: Nengi clears air on ‘love triangle’ with Prince, Ozo

Big Brother Naija, BBNaija housemate, Nengi has said there is no love triangle with Prince and Ozo following Tolanibaj’s eviction.

Nengi said this after Ozo approached her on Tuesday night saying he caught her looking at Prince in a funny way.

“You are just seeing things and exaggerating. It’s not because of me he comes to the room.
“I’m in my lane and don’t have anything or triangle. If I wanted to be close to him I would be because I called the shot.

BBNaija 2020: Laycon caught rubbing his manhood on national TV [VIDEO]

Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemate, Olamilekan Agbeleshe, simply known as Laycon, was caught on camera last night rubbing his manhood.

Unlike some other housemates, Laycon has not found a love interest in the Lockdown house and has almost given up his pursuit of Erica, his love interest.

Sitting alone on the couch last night, the 26-year-old shocked viewers when he dipped his right hand into his pants and gradually rubbed himself.
As if that was not enough, Laycon seemed to have taken pleasure in smelling his fingers after the act.

The Lagos-born music rapper is seen by many as a strong contender for the N85 million grand prize and his love for fellow housemate, Erica, has generated a lot of issues in the house.

Just yesterday, he said Erica had wanted to kiss him on one occasion, a comment that angered the female housemate who went ahead to nominate him for possible eviction next Sunday.
