TOTTENHAM are desperate to land a new striker by Friday — but chairman Daniel Levy has set a £10million limit.Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho, who has agreed a £27m deal for PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn, is hoping to see a stand-in for crocked Harry Kane arrive this window.1 Jose Mourinho is desperate to land a striker to replace crocked Harry KaneCredit: Rex FeaturesBut chairman Levy, who yesterday turned Giovani Lo Celso’s loan from Real Betis into a permanent £27m deal, is infuriating other clubs by not getting anywhere near their asking fees.Levy only wanted to pay Milan £10m for Krzysztof Piatek even though they rate him at three times that figure.And he was only willing to shell out the same amount for Real Sociedad’s Willian Jose, even though he is available for £21m.Spurs are also looking at Benfica’s £15m- rated Haris Seferovic.Bergwijn, 22, arrived in London yesterday to finalise his move. He is poised to sign a 5½-year deal worth £90,000 a week.LADBROKES 1-2-FREE Simply predict Man Utd, Arsenal and Spurs vs Man City scores this coming weekend and win £100His playing style is said to be a cross of Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen, who finally joined Inter Milan yesterday.Bergwijn, renowned for his electric turn of pace, has scored just five league goals in 16 games for PSV this season. But it is his record of setting up goals which is far more impressive.Since the start of the 2017-18 campaign, Bergwijn has been involved in 56 goals, with 29 of those assists.He impressed for PSV when Spurs beat them 2-1 in the group stage of the Champions League last season.The Amsterdam-born ace has continued to star for the Dutch giants this season, averaging a goal or an assist every 89 minutes.Most read in footballTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himREF RAIDChampions League ref Vincic ‘arrested in raid into drugs and prostitution ring’NICE RONCristiano Ronaldo goes on family bike ride with partner Georgina Rodriguez & kidsTottenham hope that kind of form will not only help them find the net while Kane recovers from his injury but also when he returns.Bergwijn started as a kid in Ajax’s famous academy before PSV pulled off a coup by snatching him from right under their noses in 2011 when he was still 14.Leicester and Sevilla were both linked with him last summer.FA Cup 5th round draw: Man United face Southampton/Spurs while Chelsea at home to Shrewsbury/Liverpool

PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaMACHAKOS, KENYA, Jul 8- Defender Salim ‘Shittu’ Abdallah scored the lone goal in the 52nd minute as AFC Leopards bounced back to winning ways beating Sony Sugar 1-0 at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos to move fourth in the Kenyan Premier League standings.AFC came into the tie on the backdrop of a draw and a loss in their last two games, but an assured performance against an equally well organized Sony side saw them pick three points at home to move up the ladder. A hugely contested first half provided the entertainment with pace and passing, but the chances infront of goal weren’t as forthcoming.Brian Marita had the game’s first chance in the third minute when a clearance from keeper John Waw fell on his path, but his eventual snap shot from distance was turned behind for a corner by the keeper.AFC had started with pace, using their speed on the wings with both Marita and Jaffery Owiti, but they could not get the key pass to open up for scoring opportunities.Sony’s first chance of the game came in the 26th minute when a defensive error saw the ball fall on Sony midfielder Tobias Otieno, but the latter’s shot from the edge of the area went inches over the bar.When the momentum swung the other way immediately, AFC came inches close but Chemelil keeper Wawu made a great save to pick the ball off the line after Ezekiel Odera did well to bring down Owiti’s cross before squaring to Whyvonne Isuza whose effort at the back post was saved.The second half’s pace picked up with AFC making an attacking change, new signing Alex Orotomal coming on for Marvin Omondi as head coach Rodolfo Zapata went for a two-man attack.The lanky Nigerian signed from Rwandese side Sunshine FC brought in some punch in attack with his running and ball retention. His activity at the edge of the box attracted a foul on him, but the resultant effort from Isaac Oduro went inches wide.The pressure bore fruit in the 52nd minute when Salim Abdallah broke the deadlock with a dipping header from Marita’s cross, keeper John Waw caught flat out.Ingwe survived a scare just 10 minutes later when a poorly defended long throw from Enock Agwanda fell on substitute Ambrose Ayoyi, but his shot from close range was saved by keeper Ezekiel Owade.But the home side kept the pressure attacking with intent and they had two more chances, first Owiti’s shot from range going just wide while minutes later, Odera missing the vital touch to direct the ball into the net from Orotomal’s cross.Five minutes from time, Oduro came close with a freekick from range which rattled the crossbar while two minutes later, Orotamal’s shot from the right was finger-tipped behind for a corner.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

The plan required a simple majority to move forward. Supporters have long hailed the project, which has been in the planning stages for four years, for its amenities, including a man-made lake, a 2,121-acre nature preserve and road improvements. To entice voters, the developer offered other perks, including funding for new parks, a school and a fire station. Opponents of the initiative charged that the development would swallow open space, promote urban sprawl, clog traffic, destroy animal habitats, crowd schools and drain the city’s infrastructure. The special election cost $250,000. MOORPARK – Voters in early returns were rejecting a proposed 1,680-unit housing development north of the city, choosing to preserve the city’s small-town, rural character. With only absentee ballots counted Tuesday night, Measure A6 was losing with 2,513 votes against the proposal and just 98l for it. The measure asked the electorate of this suburb whether North Park Communities LLC should be allowed to build the project outside city limits in county-owned land, which has been protected from development. The ballot measure sought voter approval to annex the 3,544 acres necessary to add the homes north of Moorpark College. The $3 billion community would increase Moorpark’s population by 6,000 residents and generate some 23,000 daily car trips, say planners.

I’m very glad to be here and can’t wait to get started.”Farke becomes Norwich’s first foreign boss and replaces Neil exactly two years after the Scot guided the club to the Premier League, beating Middlesbrough 2-0 in the play-off final. Neil failed to keep them in the Premier League and the Canaries were relegated after one season and then finished eighth in the Sky Bet Championship this term, after Alan Irvine took caretaker charge for the final 10 games.The Canaries also considered Lincoln’s Danny Cowley and Barnsley’s Paul Heckingbottom but talks with Farke had been on-going for a number of weeks with new sporting director Webber travelling to Germany recently.Webber joined Norwich in April from Championship rivals Huddersfield, where he was influential in bringing another former Borussia Dortmund II boss, David Wagner, to England.Wagner joined Town in November 2015 and has this season led them to the Championship play-off final, where they Reading on Monday.Farke will need to work within a tight budget with Norwich cutting back having failed to make an instant return to the top flight. They have released several high earners, including former England international goalkeeper John Ruddy, and would consider offers for Yanic Wildschut, Matt Jarvis and Steven Naismith.

Aulas told Canal Plus: “I do not think that Alexandre Lacazette will leave this summer.“I do not have anything to say about Olivier Giroud. We’re interested. Things haven’t advanced.”The Gunners are expected to make a number of signings this summer after boss Arsene Wenger agreed a new two-year deal towards the end of last season.Monaco Starlet Kylian Mbappe and Manchester United’s Anthony Martial are two players they are targeting, but may be hamstrung by lack of Champions League football.
THE MAN exposed as a crook by donegaldaily.com was JAILED three times, it was revealed tonight.Conman Francois de Dietrich fleeced 220 Donegal people out of tens of millions of euros – and 200 others around Ireland.But his crimewave was brought to an end when donegaldaily lifted the lid on how he tricked unsuspecting victims into parting with their cash. The French crook ran a series of legitimate businesses from his base in Ballybofey.But behind the front was a sophisticated con job – where people handed over their money in return for promises of returns of up to 40%.Tonight donegaldaily can reveal that conman De Dietrich was jailed three times in his native France for previous frauds.He even ripped off his own brother – and was banned from being involved in business by the French authorities for 30 years! Living openly in France, de Dietrich was involved in money laundering for criminals.One criminal who put in £100,000 and got £1.7M back via foreign back accounts.Detectives believe criminals were the main beneficiaries of De Dietrich’s con tricks.Confronted by the BBC in northern France, the conman refused to answer any questions.His victims included Gardai, PSNI officers, accountants and property developers. And while Francois was rolling in other people’s cash, staff of Etic Solutions were treated shamefully.Former employee Jenny Byrne revealed that Francois refused to pay mileage or overnight accommodation when she was working for him.“You were lucky to get paid,” she said.And she says she asked herself: “How do we have these lovely offices without a client base; there was no pressure to get revenue in.” After the Spotlight programme on BBC1 tonight, one investor who has been talking to donegaldaily for six months told us: “I know donegaldaily reported he had a criminal record and seeing it now on TV has brought home just how evil Francois really is.“I can’t thank donegaldaily enough for exposing this man.
