Newcastle Jets have confirmed that 21-year-old Josh Brillante will join Serie A side Fiorentina. The midfielder was part of Australia's 30-man provisional World Cup squad but failed to make the final 23. He said in a statement released by the Jets: "I've had an amazing couple of years at the Jets and I'm very thankful that I came to a club like Newcastle who develop young players and give them an opportunity."

Let's be honest, transfer rumours are basically designed to build up the hopes of fans and then crush them down when they least expect it. Just a few hours after reports suggested Sami Khedira is set to follow Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal, the Daily Mail claims the Gunners are unwilling to meet Real Madrid's £20 million valuation and the player is demanding a £150,000-a-week contract. Ouch.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes is looking to add to the signings of Phil Bardsley, Steve Sidwell, Mame Biram Diouf and Dionatan Teixeira this summer. He told the club's official website: "We are very pleased with the work we have carried out already, but we do have a number of other irons in the fire at the moment too. Players are starting to come back from the World Cup now so things will start to move quite quickly in my opinion."
Goal understands Newcastle have had an opening bid of £4.7 million rejected by Feyenoord for right-back Daryl Janmaat. The 24-year-old Netherlands international has also been linked with a move to Manchester United but his club are holding out for £8.7m.

The Twittersphere nearly exploded yesterday with news that Paul Pogba - a HUGE summer transfer target for Chelsea - is in London.

The soon-to-be out-of-contract defender has played in England before, you know. In fact, the stats say he didn't fare too well. The 29-year-old joined Sheffield United during their Premier League relegation season in 2007 but played just three matches in 11 months. He then returned to England for a loan spell with Hull in January 2013... and started just one game in the Championship.
A statement on the club's Facebook page reads: "Ahmed Fathi is set to travel to England on Friday to undergo a trial period at Arsenal Football Club in preparation to sign him if he has a successful trial and so Fathi will be unavailable to participate in Al Ahly's game against Smouha in the semi-final of the Egypt Cup next Monday."
Oh hello! Arsenal sure are having a busy summer. Egyptian club Al Ahly have confirmed that right-back Ahmed Fathi will miss the club's Egypt Cup semi-final on Monday because he is set to travel to London TODAY to have a trial with the Gunners.
