Tottenham ‘open talks’ with Leicester City winger Demarai Gray

first_imgTottenham Hotspur have ‘opened talks’ with Leicester City winger Demarai Gray. According to Football Insider, Spurs have been keen on Gray for some time and they are now ready to pull the trigger. The report claims Jose Mourinho has already spoken to Gray personally and that preliminary talks over a deal are underway. Gray is said to be open to a move to North London having failed to get regular minutes at the King Power Stadium. The 24-year-old winger has just one year remaining on his City contract and if he is not going to pen a new deal, it is likely the Foxes will want a transfer fee for him before he is able to leave for free next summer. The future of England left-back Ben Chilwell is the biggest talking point of the summer and we will bring you all the news around his future. In our daily Leicester City bulletin, we’ll be bringing you the latest breaking news, transfer features and comment pieces, as well as the key talking points for fans.

Loading… Gray, who arrived at the King Power Stadium in 2016, made 21 league appearances last season, but he started just three times. Brendan Rodgers preferred Ayoze Perez on the right-hand side for the most part with Harvey Barnes preferred on the left. Like City, Spurs will play in the Europa League next season and it seems Mourinho is keen to strengthen his squad. Gray could be part of that process, but it will come down to whether Rodgers is happy for the winger to leave. read also:Vardy signs new contract at Leicester City“He’s obviously a player we want to keep,” Rodgers said in June. “When he’s focused and concentrated, and then plays to that level (of his substitute performance against Watford), you see the impact he has. “He’s got wonderful talent. He can dribble, he can do everything. With Demarai, it’s always been about that end product, creating goals and assisting goals on a regular basis, and then working with an intensity to fit in with the structure of the team. “I really enjoy working with him, he’s a good guy, loves his football, and wants to improve.

first_imgFormer Vice President and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden snapped at a reporter on Wednesday, when an interviewer asked whether he had taken a cognitive test.The response? Biden became defensive, asking the interviewer, CBS correspondent Errol Barnett, if he was a junkie and had been tested for cocaine use.“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?” Biden asked. “Come on, man. That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program, if you had to take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?”The 77-year-old’s response contradicted remarks he made last June at a press conference, when he said he was “constantly tested” for mental decline, in response to a reporter’s question.During that encounter, he said, “All you gotta do is watch me and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against,” after calling the reporter a “lying dog face.”“Why the hell would I take a test?”@JoeBiden scoffs at idea of taking a cognitive test.Suggests @realDonaldTrump “can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion.”Full interview at @NABJ @NAHJ virtual convention Thursday 8am ET.@CBSNews pic.twitter.com/rGNJpjfbF6— errol barnett (@errolbarnett) August 5, 2020 Barnett continued by asking what Biden thinks of President Trump, who is 74, making his opponent’s mental state an issue for voters.Biden replied, “Look, man, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I’m looking forward to having an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president in the debates. There’s going to be plenty of time.”He continued, “I am very willing to let the American public judge my personal and mental fil– my physical as well as my mental fil– my fitness and to make a judgment about who I am.”Meanwhile, President Trump has also has gone to great lengths to prove that he is up to continuing in the job.

Suns stun Clippers on Devin Booker’s buzzer-beater

first_img What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ The Suns (29-39) improved to 3-0 in the bubble, further improving their chances of forcing a play-in for a playoff berth following the eight scheduled seeding games.The Clippers stumbled to 1-2 at at Walt Disney World Resort, and they now stand at 45-22 overall, still second in the standings, a game ahead of the Denver Nuggets.Still missing Montrezl Harrell, who is outside of the bubble mourning his grandmother’s death, Coach Doc Rivers’ squad took a step forward, toward full strength Tuesday with Williams’ return from the 10-day quarantine. His challenging, extended isolation was on account of a trip to a gentlemen’s club for food while he was out of the bubble for a funeral.But then the Clippers took a step back when Patrick Beverley exited the game after eight minutes with left calf soreness. Rivers said the Clippers will play it safe with their fiery guard: “I don’t think it’s bad, (but) we’re going to be very cautious, I can tell you that.”Williams played 20 minutes, 48 seconds Tuesday, scoring seven points on 3 of 8 shooting, to go along with six rebounds and a team-high six assists, as well as three of the Clippers’ 10 turnovers. Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Whatever comeback story the Phoenix Suns are working on in the bubble, the Clippers didn’t have it in them to interrupt it Tuesday.Suns star Devin Booker spoiled Lou Williams’ return to action, pouring in a game-high 35 points – including the game-winning basket, after spinning away from Kawhi Leonard and shooting over the outstretched arms of Paul George with time expiring – to lift Phoenix to the 117-115 victory.“They played good basketball today, the Phoenix Suns did,” said Leonard, who scored eight of his team-high 27 points in the fourth quarter, as the Clippers closed an eight-point gap but never could move in front.“They played together. Devin Booker came out playing aggressive, great.” “Lou was OK,” Rivers said. “Obviously didn’t have great timing. Played Probably more minutes than I thought he could; I was happy with that.”So was Williams.“Yeah, I needed it, I needed it,” he said. “I don’t know if I was going to be able to just watch that game today with the last 10 days being by myself, being isolated, watching so much basketball — watching so much good basketball.“It would have been difficult just to watch this game. It was good for me to get out there, get a few minutes in, try to contribute the best I could.”Spurred by Booker, the Suns enjoyed a lead for most of the game, thwarting every one of the Clippers’ attempts to build momentum, including late, when they tied it at 111 on Ivica Zubac’s putback with 1:56 left.In those final two minutes, Deandre Ayton (19 points) and Leonard (seven rebounds and three assists) traded buckets. Booker made a jumper and Leonard made two free throws.And then, after Zubac — who equaled his season high of 18 points — grabbed his 12th rebound, the big man’s hurried outlet pass was intercepted by Mikal Bridges, who got the ball to Booker, and he put a bow on the game.“I thought, as a group, we just had so many mental errors,” Rivers said. “Zu was included in that. So his numbers were great, but he’s a better player than he even played today.”For the Clippers, Marcus Morris Sr. got going with 16 points, the second-most he’s scored as a Clipper, and George added 24 – although only one of them was a 3-pointer. George connected on eight 3-pointers in both of his first two seeding games.As a team, the Clippers shot 8 of 29 from behind the arc, taking only four more than they made in their victory over New Orleans on Saturday, when they set a franchise record for 3-pointers.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

What if the Marlins’ outfield sculpture was good?

first_imgThere’s a 65 percent chance you’re hate-reading this article. That’s OK. But hear us out at least: What if the much-maligned Miami Marlins outfield sculpture, which has been torn down, was actually good?For a franchise with little hope of a playoff appearance anytime soon — and one without a face to represent it publicly — the sculpture was an absurd yet memorable feature. That’s more than you can say about any other part of the club. And in an age of sameness, where truly original thought can be difficult to come by, it was strangely refreshing to see something so ill-advised make it through multiple approval processes and open as a key component of a $515 million project. In essence, the sculpture was so bad it was good. MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNIn a Twitter poll, 35 percent of people agreed with this take. It was also the official point of view of popular MLB account Cespedes Family BBQ, which disputed DAZN “ChangeUp” host Adnan Virk’s argument that the sculpture was trash. So while our take may be unpopular, it isn’t without supporters.Here’s a look at how polarizing the issue was:.@DAZN_USA @ScottRogowsky @adnansvirk the sculpture rocked you nerds— Cespedes Family BBQ (@CespedesBBQ) April 2, 2019On Acid, maybe.

Gay wins 200 at nationals with season-leading time

first_imgby Pat GrahamDES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Mentally, Tyson Gay is now in a good place. Physically, too.That’s the healing power of running fast at nationals.Once and for all, Gay put to rest any questions about his surgically repaired hip as he completed the 100-200 sprint double Sunday at U.S. track championships, winning the 200 meters in 19.74 seconds.It’s the fastest time in the world this season. Gay also beat Justin Gatlin in the 100 on Friday in a season-leading time of 9.75.“I’m pretty tired,” Gay said. “I’m just glad I’m leaving the race healthy.”With his strong performance, Gay delivered an emphatic message to the rest of the world, and more specifically Usain Bolt: The Gay of old is back. Not the version hobbled by nagging injuries over the years, but the one who captured the 100 and 200 titles at the 2007 world championships.“I’m just happy to be healthy,” Gay said. “It feels good, man.”It should be quite a show when he meets up with Bolt at the world championships in Moscow this summer. Not that Gay is thinking any farther than icing down his legs after an exhausting weekend.“I’m just focused on myself right now,” Gay said. “It’s no secret Usain Bolt is obviously the greatest of all time. He’s definitely going to be prepared.”In the women’s 200, Kimberlyn Duncan upset Olympic champion Allyson Felix. Duncan finished in 21.80, with Felix 0.05 seconds behind. Jeneba Tarmoh was third.Felix said she got a late start on training and hasn’t completely found her racing form just yet. She skipped the 100 earlier in the week to be more prepared for her signature event, the 200.“I’m lacking a little bit of speed right now,” Felix said. “Overall, my conditioning could be a little better.”Duncan did what few have done on Felix by making up ground at the end and blazing by her to close out the race.“I’m just overjoyed to having been here and to have the opportunity,” Duncan said.Gay built a lead after the curve and then fended off the hard-charging Isiah Young, who finished in 19.86. Curtis Mitchell, the training partner of Gay, was third to grab the last spot in the 200, while Wallace Spearmon, a three-time U.S. outdoor champion, wound up a disappointing fourth.It was a busy day to finish nationals, with one final after another in rapid succession. Other winners include Alysia Montano (800), Jennifer Simpson (5,000), Duane Solomon (men’s 800), Ryan Wilson (110 hurdles), Bernard Lagat (5,000), Erik Kynard (high jump), Riley Dolezal (javelin), Evan Jager (3,000 steeplechase), Dalilah Muhammad (400 hurdles), George Kitchens (long jump), Ryan Whiting (shot put), Gia Lewis-Smallwood (discus) and Tim Seaman (20,000 race walk).Olympic pole vault champion and indoor record holder Jenn Suhr cruised to a national title, setting up a showdown with outdoor record holder Yelena Isinbayeva of Russia.In Isinbayeva’s backyard, no less.“I’m inviting as many family members that will go over to Moscow as I can to help cheer for me,” Suhr said. “I think I might be the underdog there. We’re hoping to get a big crowd over there.” Tyson Gay, center, leads Isiah Young, left, and Wallace Spearmon, right, during the senior men’s 200-meter dash finals at the U.S. Championships athletics meet on Sunday, June 23, 2013, in Des Moines, Iowa.
