Messi is just too good :O

Well done by James Ward-Prowse, though, only a matter of time before a big club snatches him up!


Schalke 04 pair Felipe Santana and Lars Unnerstall have both left the club after having transfer requests accepted.

The two were believed to have been unhappy at the lack of first team opportunities and will now start anew elsewhere.

Santana will join FC Köln for £2 million after agreeing a three year deal with the 2. Bundesliga club on £32,000 a week.

Köln currently sit in 4th place of the second tier of German football, with the North-Rhine Westphalia side hoping the former Borussia Dortmund man can power them to Promotion.

Unnerstall joins Hertha Berlin for £2.5 million after agreeing a four and a half year deal with the mid-table side.

With Hertha Berlin in 10th place in the Bundesliga, Unnerstall will now battle it out with Philip Sprint for a spot in Jos Luhukay’s starting 11.
Good riddance, the pair of them, I'm surprised you ever got so much cash for their services in the first place. Unnerstall was promising once but is now one of the consistently worst keepers I have ever seen, and Santana and his "stand around on the ball because clearances are too mainstream" decisions will not be missed.

I'm ranting now, good update :))
yes! deffo good deals congrats on winning SoTM too btw


Swansea City midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo will join Schalke 04 next summer after agreeing a deal with the Germans.

Pozuelo has just six months left on his current deal with ‘The Swans’, with the Spaniard now joining Schalke on a four year deal in June.

The 24-year-old seemed resolute on running down his deal with the Welsh club, rejecting three offers from current boss Steve Clarke.

Pozuelo had been linked with a move to Arsenal in August, along with his teammate Jordi Amat, but will now make his highly anticipated move out of The Liberty Stadium.

The former Real Betis man played a total of 36 games last season, scoring six goals, but has seen his options under Clarke diminish due to his strained relationship with Scot, appearing just seven times since the beginning of the season.
A very good midfield attack, I hope you confirm and merits.
Some good deals :)
