FLETCHER MOVE TO WEST HAM OFF

Man United
boss Louis van Gaal claims the midfielder's move to West Ham is off after the London club wanted to make the deal temporary, rather than permanent. “I thought Darren was going to sign a contract,” Van Gaal told BBC Sport. “But at the end they look for a loan and that was not the agreement. When you allow your player to go to London for the medical, there is no problem. At the end there is no agreement, it is strange."

RECAP - BEN ARFA INELIGIBLE FOR NICE

The club's president says they intend to take their appeal further after French football's ruling body confirmed the midfielder cannot appear for them this season.

However, he has been unable to feature for his new side due to an appearance for Newcastle's development squad prior to his Hull move, with Fifa ruling players cannot play for three teams in a season.

DARREN FLETCHER UPDATE - LOUIS VAN GAAL

Man United
boss Louis van Gaal has been speaking about Darren Fletcher whose proposed move to West Ham has reportedly fallen through. He told reporters: "I don't know what is happening, when you allow your player to go to London for a medical, there is no problem and at the end there is no agreement that's strange. We want to help Fletcher. That's my only concern. I am very happy as a manager that he is coming back. He is my third captain. But because of the competition he is not playing so much. That is why I want to help him. I don't know what is happening. The agreement was different on Friday and now on Saturday it is off. I don't know. I cannot say anything about it."
