DONE DEAL - NEW GUNDOGAN CONTRACT!

Busiest. Day. Ever. Manchester United fans, Barcelona fans, Bayern Munich fans... it ain't happening. Ilkay Gundogan has signed a one-year contract extension with Borussia Dortmund. So, basically, we'll have this very same situation in a year's time.

Nice one, Ilkay. See you then.

DESIGNATED PLAYER RULE EXPLAINED

Ives Galarcep: “MLS owners are ready to ratify changes to the current salary cap rules to create a Core Player roster spot that will effectively work as a fourth designated player place for any teams currently using all three slots.

“The Galaxy currently have Robbie Keane and Omar Gonzalez as Designated Players, with Steven Gerrard joining as the third this weekend.

“Dos Santos, though, would not join LA Galaxy until August due to international commitments, by which time MLS would be expected to have implemented its salary cap changes.”

Bert van Oostveen, the head of the Dutch football association (KNVB), said: "We are happy that, after the farewell of Guus Hiddink, we found a successor within our organisation. We wish Danny, together with his staff, a lot of success.

Danny Blind: "Together with staff and players I will work hard to qualify for the European Cup in France. That's my only target, making it to the EC. I don't look back and I don't look further forward. The only target is qualifying for the EC."

BAYERN TRANSFER PLANS

New players??? WHAT new players??? Following the arrival of Douglas Costa from Shakhtar Donetsk, Arjen Robben told Algemeen Dagblad: "It seems to have been said that Bayern should be ashamed of last season and that we need to attract lots of new players, but that's nonsense."

Robben: New signings? Nonsense!
