  • Brighton manager Chris Hughton admits he has been forced to look abroad for new talent because of the cost of English-based players. Albion have recruited from across Europe this summer, bringing in eight foreign players with seven different nationalities as they attempt to build a squad capable of competing in the Premier League following promotion.Hughton - who is expected to unleash Colombian record-signing Jose Izquierdo on Watford on Saturday - feels it has made more financial sense to look for reinforcements outside England. "Predominately, it's the market - it's certainly not a case of specifically wanting to bring in foreign players over English-based players," the 58-year-old said. "But the market is different and I think what you have to pay for an English player or a player that's playing in the English game, on probably more occasions than not, is more money."It's about balancing books and what you can get for your money."Australian goalkeeper Mat..

The Reds have been one of the quietest of those who finished in the Premier League's top seven last term, with just Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, full-back Andrew Robertson and young striker Dominic Solanke being brought in.They have so far been frustrated in their pursuits of RB Leipzig's Naby Keita and Southampton's Virgil van Dijk due to the respective clubs' reluctance to sell, and Liverpool only have until next Thursday to add to their squad ahead of their return to the Champions League group stage.Klopp does not see the fact the Reds secured that qualification this week as a major aid for them in the window's closing stages, with the German adamant his club are not to blame for the fact certain details are yet to materialise."All the players we spoke to we convinced," the German ..

  • Premier League spending in the current transfer window is already at an all-time record level, with a week remaining.Figures released by Deloitte's Sports Business Group showed top-flight clubs had spent £1.17billion on players this summer by 9am on Thursday, breaking the record of £1.165m set last year.That was already a 34 per cent rise on the previous record for a single window - and with time remaining this time around the numbers could rise to even more breathtaking levels.Deloitte consultant Chris Stenson believes the unprecedented spending is in line with reasonable expectations, given the riches available to Premier League clubs from the record broadcast deals which took effect last season.He said: "The level of transfer expenditure in this summer's window has been extraordinary but when analysed in the context of record broadcast, commercial and matchday revenues, Premier League clubs are spending within their means."Their ability to generate these record revenu..

  • Goalkeeper Rob Elliot admits the ongoing debate about Newcastle's transfer activity could be having a detrimental effect on those currently at St James' Park. After a summer of frustration in the market for boss Rafael Benitez following last season's promotion, the Magpies have opened the new Premier League term with back-to-back defeats to perhaps emphasise why the Spaniard is so keen for more new arrivals.It has led to plenty of airtime and column inches dedicated to discussions over whether Newcastle are currently equipped to survive, and Elliot will welcome the end of the window when there will be certainty over Benitez's eventual group."With the stories flying around - (we) haven't got enough, (we) have got enough - I don't think it's very fair on the squad," admitted Elliot, who was injured for the majority of last term."They did such a terrific job last year and we've brought in some good players.

  • The USB 3.0 Promoter Group has now announced a new USB Type-C specification – USB 3.2. It brings along double the data rates - with up to 20Gbps. However, while the aim of USB Type-C was to end the saga of multiple ports, this new added one defeats that purpose. The specification is expected to be finalised later this year, and we could expect the first devices next year.USB Type-C looked to bring uniformity in ports so that users could charge all devices – be it laptops, mobile phones, cameras, tablets, or anything else through one single USB Type-C port. However, there’s now the age-old USB 2.0, non-reversible USB 3.0, and USB 3.1 Gen1 and Gen 2 as well. Amidst all this, the USB 3.0 Promoter Group has unveiled USB 3.2 adding to the confusion.While all these ports are interoperable, they do not work up to optimum unless you have the latest innards to support it on all devices. In any case, USB 3.2 offers really good data transfer speeds at 20Gbps, which is twice what USB 3.1 Gen 2 o..

  • Stoke boss Mark Hughes would like the summer transfer window to close before the start of the season due to the "disruption" it causes.The existing window shuts on August 31 - 20 days after the start of the Premier League campaign and almost a month after the first English Football League fixtures have taken place. Various managers have already expressed their frustration that transfer business is still being conducted well into the new season and say they would prefer the window to close earlier, and Hughes is of the same opinion.

  • Closing the transfer window before the Premier League season begins would be beneficial to managers, teams and fans alike, according to Burnley boss Sean Dyche.The prospect of player trading ceasing prior to a ball being kicked is expected to be discussed at a shareholders' board meeting next month, with a number of managers recently expressing their frustration at deals continuing to drag on well into the campaign.Dyche is among those supporting an earlier cut-off point because he feels the market can scupper early-season plans and detract from the games themselves. "I think the window will change days," Dyche said. "Whether it's in January or at the beginning of the season, you want to get on and be doing your work. "You don't want to start the season and lose three of your players when you're three games into the season. That could be really hard to take, and that happens.
