Done deal: Juventus sign Weston McKennie from Schalke on permanent deal
Juventus have confirmed the signing of USMNT midfielder Weston McKennie on a permanent deal.
McKennie, 22, originally joined Serie A giants Juve on loan from Schalke 04 in September. The contract included “option rights,” which meant Juve could then sign the player on a permanent deal for €18.5 million.
The transfer was confirmed Wednesday with the payments to Schalke split over three years. Juve also announced there could be €6.5m in additional payments should McKennie and Juve achieve several milestones. McKennie joins the Serie A champions on a deal through to June 2025.
Done deal: Harvey Blair signs contract extension with Liverpool FC
Harvey Blair has signed a new contract extension with Liverpool FC.
The 17-year-old is in his first season with Marc Bridge-Wilkinson’s U18s squad.
After some fine goalscoring form in pre-season, his progress was disrupted by an injury in the first league game of the 2020-21 campaign.
But he returned in style to score in successive games against Middlesbrough and Derby County in December.
An exciting forward who can play out wide or through the middle, his pace and ability on the ball are particular assets.
He joined the Reds at U12 level from Manchester United and signed his first professional contract with the club last year.

Blues keeping tabs on AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma
Chelsea are continuing to keep tabs on AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, according to reports.
The Blues paid a world-record fee for a goalkeeper when they signed Kepa Arrizabalaga for £71.6m in 2018.
After two disappointing seasons, the Spaniard was replaced as the club’s No.1 earlier this season.
Chelsea signed Edouard Mendy as their new first-choice pick between the sticks, paying £22m for the former Rennes custodian.
However, recent reports suggest Chelsea are still not content with their goalkeeping situation.
