Kyle Walker is a 26 year old English defender who performs with Tottenham Hotspur and has been making so many superb performances in this current 2016-17 English Premier League season that he has attracted the attention of Manchester City.


It’s rumored that Manchester City are interested in securing the services of Kyle Walker who recently was included in the PFA Team of the Year for the season of 2016-17 and this is because of just how impressively the defender has been performing and played a big role in Tottenham Hotspur’s push to the upper section of the English Premier League.

The PFA Team of the Year for the season of 2016-17 included the likes of: David de Gea, David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard, RomeluLukaku and Harry Kane just to name a few of the more prolific and renowned players. Kyle Walker managed to mark his name in this squad of top class performers.

The English Football League is considering creating a new ‘fifth’ division for the start of the 2019/2020 football season, according to the Chief Executive Shaun Harvey.


According to Harvey, members would be the one to decide if Celtic and Rangers can participate in the EFL. The EFL wants to expand to four divisions of 20 teams each, so it wants the 72 clubs to give their opinions.

Celtic and Rangers have been seriously considered for long to join the fifth division, despite being of the Scottish divide. But Harvey says the final decision would be made solely by the members.

“We have recently gone out to our clubs to elicit their further views in relation to any different number of areas from the proposition that was first put forward. Once we have their views, we can move forward,” Harvey said. He then added that if they were to proceed, there’s the dilemma of which teams to choose.

“One of the simple questions, if this is to proceed, is where should the [new] teams come from? So the only ones who will decide that are the clubs themselves, so we will see what they say. I don’t want to pre-empt anything,” he added. Rangers and Celtic have massive fan bases, and would be worthy additions.

After sacking Javier Aguirre, Japan is looking to get a new coach slotted in sooner rather than later as the team is to play a couple of games later this month.

As has been Japan’s policy in the recent past, they are believed to be going to go with an overseas guy once again for the top post.

But, at this stage of the year, it’s very difficult to find an experienced coach.

Japan will probably have to wait for the domestic season to get over in different European countries.

There are not enough options for them at this point in time as all the experienced coaches seem to be employed somewhere.

If they want, they can appoint an interim coach for the time being.

Yesterday, one of the top brass officials of the Japan Association hinted about the possibility of a temporary appointment.

In the words of that official, “If we get it done in the next couple of weeks, that would be ideal, but, there is no rush really. We will have to make sure that we bring in the right personnel even if that takes a bit more time.”
