Eight Chelsea players who could be sold by Antonio Conte

first_img 3. Gary Cahill – According to reports, the England centre-back is one of the first-team regulars Conte wants to part with in the summer. The Italian will want to sort out his defence as soon as he arrives and unfortunately the 30-year-old will be driven out to be replaced by a player of a higher calibre, or Matt Miazga should his emergence continue. 8 8. Papy Djilobodji – It’s unsure what the future holds for the Senegalese defender. He only played 59 seconds of football this season before being shipped off to Werder Bremen on loan. The German side are thinking of another short-term move for the player in the summer, which seems like a good option, but Conte could cash in to fund some frenzied transfer activity. 5. Victor Moses – With the news West Ham aren’t going to sign Moses when his loan spell ends, the nomadic winger will likely be looking for a new permanent home come July, despite signing a new deal last summer. 8 Now it has been confirmed Antonio Conte will become the next manager of Chelsea, their transfer plans will soon be coming together.Conte will take charge once he finishes his work with Italy at Euro 2016 in France but it is believed he is already plotting moves for players he believes will strengthen their squad.Paul Pogba and Leonardo Bonucci are among the stars being linked with switches to Stamford Bridge but, before any of this can take place, he will have to sell some assets to balance his squad.So which players could find themselves leaving west London in the summer? talkSPORT takes a look.Click the right arrow above to see which Chelsea players we think Antonio Conte could sell in the summer… 6. Marco van Ginkel – This may not be a permanent deal but the Dutch midfielder has told press in the Netherlands he would like to extend his stay with PSV Eindhoven. The 23-year-old has netted five goals in eight games back in his homeland and staying seems like the right option as he looks to get his career back on track. 8 8 8 8 1. Loic Remy – Read all about it, below, then click the right arrow above to see which Chelsea stars could be leaving in the summer… – The Frenchman has only started six games this season and managed three goals so is likely to be sold on in the summer as Conte looks to bring in at least one striker, with Gonzalo Higuain being linked. At 29 he’ll be moved on for a decent fee, although the Blues might not get back all £10.5m they spent on the player. 8 4. John Obi Mikel – The Nigerian has been a key part of Guus Hiddink’s team in recent weeks but his Blues career could still be set to end as Conte arrives. The Italian will want a more dynamic edge to his midfield and, due to this, Mikel – who is about to turn 29 – will be shunted off to pastures new. 7. Christian Atsu – Injury saw the winger’s time with Bournemouth cut short earlier in the season and now he finds himself on loan in La Liga with Malaga. Even if he shows some extraordinary form it’s unlikely he’ll feature for the Blues’ first-team next year and the player may well want to move on, especially after losing momentum on his 2015 African Cup of Nations performances. 2. Marko Marin – Remember him? We do (just about). He’s currently over in Turkey playing for Trabzonspor in his fourth loan away from Stamford Bridge. He’ll still have another year to run on his Chelsea contract when he returns in the summer – if Trabzonspor don’t take up their option to buy. He’s a safe bet to be gone. 8last_img read more

KARL LACEY REVEALS DONEGAL STAYED CALM AT HALF-TIME

first_imgKarl Lacey said Donegal remained calm at half-time in their Ulster SFC quarter-final clash with Derry, despite the fact they went in at the interval trailing by two points, after an ineffective opening 35 minutes. Karl Lacey has said Donegal stayed calm at half-time against Derry on Sunday, despite trailing at the break.Some suggested McGuinness must have read the riot act to his Donegal players at half-time, as they completely blew Derry away with a sensational 15 minute blitz at the start of the second-half.However, Lacey revealed McGuinness was calm at half-time, because he knew his side had it in their legs to overcome the deficit in the second-half. Lacey said, ” Jim kept things calm, we were two points down but we knew we had it in the legs.“We had the training done. We had the hard work done. We knew we had the fitness to push on.“We did that during the first ten or 15 minutes of the second half.“We had a couple of great moves and a couple of great scores. “I thought Leo’s goal was crucial and it came at the right time.Lacey said all focus has now turned towards their Ulster SFC semi-final clash with either Antrim or Fermanagh.“We’re not looking beyond the next match, people are suggested we’re in another Ulster final, but we’ll respect the challenge of either Antrim or Fermanagh and won’t underestimate either side.It’s a great game too look forward to, and it’s a great opportunity for us to reach another Ulster final. KARL LACEY REVEALS DONEGAL STAYED CALM AT HALF-TIME was last modified: May 28th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DerrydonegalHome-page Sportkarl laceynewsUlster SFCvictorylast_img read more

DONEGAL SCHOOL TO TAKE A VOW OF SILENCE THIS FRIDAY!

first_imgIf you are to visit Loreto Community School in Milford this Friday the 20th of March, you may come to the conclusion that the establishment is full of rude senior students who refuse to speak to visitors.How wrong you would be!The concept of a “day of silence” first came about at a prefect meeting while discussing ideas for a fundraiser. Loreto has built up a name for its successful fundraisers in the past: the twister game which was played by whole year groups simultaneously and “Crazy Hair Day” remain among the most memorable events in the hearts of the students.Each year, fifth year students are given the opportunity to host a fundraiser of their own, and donate to a cause close to their hearts.Last year, the 12 hour cycleathon raised thousands of euro which benefited local charities in our own community. It was evident that topping last years fundraiser would be nothing short of a miracle as last years group came together as one to be so successful. A fundraiser both innovative and unique would be required.And a day of silence ticked both the boxes. “Not only is the idea different, it has symbolic relevance too” explains Nora Doherty, Head Girl of the school.“After a short discussion, we decided we would like to donate funds raised to a local charity for mental health (Jigsaw in Letterkenny), which tied in wonderfully with the concept of the day of silence. We acknowledge that the day is going to be exceedingly difficult, as talking is in our nature, but throughout the day we intend to recall that often people feel this pain for years on end, silenced by their own minds or otherwise.“The difficulties we will have for the day are nothing compared to the internal torment that some people experience, and as such we expect every student in the year will take the challenge very seriously. As well as raising money for a worthy cause, we will be able to get a glimpse of the struggle which some people have on a daily basis.”As it is such a novel idea, the day of silence has been the talking point of the school over the past few weeks, as students and staff alike wait in eager anticipation.Even the organisation of such a simple event took time and thought. At lunchtime it is hoped a film will be shown for fifth year students as sitting in the school canteen surrounded by other people talking may prove too tempting for some people. Workshops have also been arranged for each class group so as to increase awareness of the cause to which we are donating.“Given all the hype surrounding the event, the day of silence is set to go down in history as one of the most memorable fifth year fundraisers. We hope the local community will join in and support us, as the money raised will benefit people around us. If anyone wishes to donate, they should contact any fifth year or prefect member.”So this Friday if you’re admiring the solar eclipse at awe in the early morning, spare a thought for the fifth years from Loreto who will be equally as amazed but forced to express that amazement into themselves.DONEGAL SCHOOL TO TAKE A VOW OF SILENCE THIS FRIDAY! was last modified: March 18th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Driver faces prosecution for driving without insurance

first_imgDonegal Gardaí have seized a car after it was discovered that the driver did not have motor insurance.A court date will now be scheduled for the driver.Gardaí tweeted: “‘Little Peugeot’ hitching a lift to the compound! all because his driver didn’t have insurance. Prosecution to follow.” Driving without insurance is a serious offence, leading to fines, penalty points, and the possibility of disqualification.The driver of ‘Little Peugeot’ could now face a fine of up to €5,000, five penalty points, or a prison term not exceeding six months.The judge may also decide to disqualify the driver instead of incurring penalty points. If this decision is reached, the driver could be disqualified for two years or more (if it is their first offence), and four years or more if it is a second offence committed within three years of the first.Donegal Gardaí: ‘Little Peugeot’ hitching a lift to the compound! all because his driver didn’t have Insurance.
