Southampton has snapped up England Under-21 goalkeeper Angus Gunn from Manchester City.

The transfer fee for the young player was in the region of £13.5m (almost $18m), including add-ons. Gunn, who spent last season at Norwich on-loan, was keen to leave Man City where he was set to be behind Ederson and Bravo in the pecking order. Gunn will now be competing with the first choice at the end of last season, Alex McCarthy, and Fraser Forster. All three goalkeepers come in at 4.5m in FPL. It will be interesting to see who is Mark Hughes' first choice as preseason progresses, as Gunn must have been given some assurances about his game time before he signed on to become a Saint.

Southampton's new midfielder Mohamed Elyounoussi joins the club with a formidable record from his time in Norway and Switzerland.

The 23 year-old started his senior career in Norway at Sarpsborg before signing for one of the country's biggest clubs, Molde. At Molde, he scored 42 goals in 92 appearances. Elyounoussi then moved to Basel where he spent two seasons. It proved to be a great incubator for the player, as he got Champions League experience and put in performances which attracted the interest of clubs as big as Arsenal. For Basel he had 23 goals and 30 assists in 84 games. "I'm at my best when I use my creativity, so I think the club's philosophy will suit me," said the player when he signed. He could be a vast improvement on the departed Dusan Tadic for 6.5m in the Official Fantasy PL game this season.

Huddersfield Town midfielder Jack Payne has joined League One side Bradford City on a season-long loan for the 2018/19 campaign.

The 23-year-old spent the first half of last season on loan at Oxford United before being recalled in January and afterwards joining Blackburn Rovers. Payne scored four goals and provided ten assists in League One play for both clubs, and clinched promotion to the Championship with Blackburn last season. The creative midfielder will now join up with former Terriers midfielder Michael Collins, who was appointed Bradford City manager in June 2018.

Ahmed Musa has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabian outfit Al Nassr for a hefty fee of £40 million.

The Nigeria international raised his profile at the World Cup, where he scored the match-winning brace against Iceland in the group stages. Despite a strong showing in Russia, Musa seems likely to leave the King Power Stadium having failed to show his potential since signing two summers ago from CSKA Moscow for a fee of around £16 million. The 25-year-old, who spent the second half of last season on loan at CKSA, has made just four appearances for Leicester since Claudio Ranieri was sacked in February 2017.

Daley Blind has left Manchester United to return home to his old club in the Netherlands, Ajax.

Blind, 28, signed for United for £13.8m when Louis van Gaal was in charge in 2014. Under his fellow Dutchman, Blind was a first team player usually occupying the left side of midfield or defence but sometimes a central berth at the back. Under José Mourinho, Blind's game time was greatly reduced though he did end up playing in the victorious finals of the FA Cup and Europa League in 2016. After a season as a squad player in 2017/18, United have done well to turn a £0.2m profit on the Netherlands international four years later.

Alexis Sanchez has been forced to miss the start of Manchester United's pre-season tour of the United States as his visa application was unsuccessful.

The 29 year-old accepted a 16-month suspended jail sentence in February for tax fraud in Spain. According to US law, no person found guilty of fraud can be granted a visa to enter the country. Sanchez will be able to enter the US if he and his lawyers can successfully navigate the waiver scheme to get a visa granted, but this is taking longer than they originally thought. Sanchez was pictured at Carrington last week training with the rest of his Manchester United teammates.
