Courtois keen to extend Atletico stay
premier league
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois wants to remain on loan at Atletico Madrid for a third year next season.

With Petr Cech continuing as Chelsea's first-choice goalkeeper, Courtois' best chance of playing regular football is likely to be a move away from Stamford Bridge and the Belgian asserted it is Atletico that he wants to play for.

Everton's Dutch defender Johnny Heitinga could leave Goodison Park this summer.
The 29-year-old's contract at the club expires at the end of next season and the Netherlands international admits Everton may wish to secure a transfer fee for him, rather than allowing him to leave for free.

Heitinga has again been linked with a move to Fenerbahce, having seen a move to the Turkish side collapse in January, and he told Voetbal International that a switch could be on the cards again.

While Williams signed a contract in October which will keep him at the club until 2015, Laudrup admits the 28-year-old may leave, but he is not expecting many departures from the Liberty Stadium.

Bundesliga 2: Dresden Vs Osnabruck - Betting Tip
bundesliga 2Dynamo Dresden v VfL Osnabruck – Nothing has been resolved after the first game of the playoff for promotion in 2.Bundesliga, but Osnabruck had gained a nice advantage.

Holloway hails Crystal Palace fight
Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway has praised his side's spirit after they won promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.
An extra-time penalty from Kevin Phillips ensured Palace ran out 1-0 winners against Watford in Monday's final at Wembley to secure a return to the top flight.

Holloway's men had dominated the second half following a cagey opening period, and the former Blackpool manager believes his side more than did enough to claim the spoils.

"We fought and battled it out, we had a tough few weeks before the play-offs, people were disappointed not to get in through automatic promotion," he told Sky Sports. 

"We're in the Premier League now ... Read more »

Heynckes agent hints at Real return
The agent of Jupp Heynckes has hinted that his client would be interested in a return to Real Madrid next season.
The German coach could complete the treble with Bayern Munich this term should his side add DFB-Pokal success to their UEFA Champions League and Bundesliga victories when they take on Stuttgart on Saturday.

However, Heynckes is set to leave Bayern at the end of the season, with former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola having been announced as his replacement in January.

Despite that, Enrique Reyes says that the 68-year-old has no thoughts of retiring and would welcome an offer from the Santiago Bernabeu club, whom he managed to 1997-98 UEFA Champions League glory in his sole season there.

Markus Gisdol's men led 3-1 from the first leg and headers from centre-backs David Abraham and Jannik Vestergaard ensured they took a 5-2 aggregate victory.

Alexander Baumjohann's free-kick between those strikes threatened a comeback, but the hosts' efforts would prove in vain at the Fritz-Walter Stadion on Monday.

Kaiserslauten boss Stefan Kuntz made three changes to the side he named in the first leg, with Christopher Drazan, Steven Zellner and Albert Bunjaku replacing Dominique Heintz, Mitchell Weiser and Erwin Hoffer

Oxlade-Chamberlain optimistic of Arsenal success
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain believes Arsenal have a solid foundation to build on next season.
The London club endured another campaign without a trophy and failed to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title.

And England international Oxlade-Chamberlain believes the club can carry that form forward into 2013-14.

"At Arsenal Football Club we want to be challenging for titles first and foremost," he told Sky Sports News.
