Word on the Tweet: LeBron returns, Suarez departs and Sanchez made to feel at home

Football briefly made way for basketball to grab the sporting headlines as the NBA got its story of the summer, with a lot of Premier league stars showing an interest

It has been a huge week for big transfer stories but there was only one switch on the lips of most professionals today – and it had nothing to do with football.

LeBron James rocked the NBA by finally announcing he would be returning home, much to the excitement of Cleveland Cavaliers fans, and clearly one or two Premier League stars as well.

James has one of the most instantly recognisable names in sport and so it was hardly surprising that his decision to leave Miami Heat trumped announcements of Kieran Richardson moving to Aston Villa, despite his eight England caps, as the official Villa site reminded fans.

Elsewhere, the big moves in football didn’t go entirely unnoticed, as Liverpool players reacted to Luis Suarez’s departure for Barcelona, while Arsenal stars welcomed their newest team-mate Alexis Sanchez.

All of the reaction to the transfer action from a crazy 24 hours can be found here as Goal gives you the Word on the Tweet.
