Dabo joins Vitesse on loan
Chelsea defender Fankaty Dabo has joined Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan deal. Dabo, a full-back, becomes the club's third signing of the summer, with his move following a spell on loan in League One with Swindon Town last season. The 21-year-old is the 20th Chelsea player to make a loan move to Vitesse, who finished fifth in the Dutch top flight last season.
Guingamp sign Camara
Guinea international Abdoul Camara has joined Guingamp on a two-year deal, a day after parting company with English club Derby County. The 27-year-old winger, who joined the English Championship side from French Ligue 1 team Angers in January 2016, had his Rams contract cancelled by mutual consent on Thursday. Camara played 26 games and scored just once during his time at Derby. The much-travelled and vastly-experienced Camara has previously played for French outfits Rennes and Sochaux, Greek club PAOK and Spanish side Mallorca.
Bernardo Silva picks up ankle injury
Portugal coasted to a 4-0 win over New Zealand in St Petersburg and secured their place in the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup. The win, however, came at a cost as Manchester City-bound midfielder Bernardo Silva was substituted because of an ankle injury.
Cristiano Ronaldo put Portugal ahead from the penalty spot on 33 minutes. Bernardo Silva swiftly doubled the lead with a close-range finish, but in doing so landed awkwardly on his ankle and was taken off at half-time.
Watford sign Will Hughes
Watford have announced the signing of England Under-21 midfielder Will Hughes. The 22-year-old, currently in Poland with the Young Lions, will leave Derby for an undisclosed fee and has signed a five-year deal at Vicarage Road. Watford say Hughes will complete the move when he returns from Poland, with England Under-21s waiting to find out their semi-final opponents at Euro 2017.
Emre Can suffers injury blow
Liverpool's Emre Can is set to miss Germany's final group game at the Confederations Cup, after picking up an injury in training on Saturday. The 23-year-old suffered what manager Jogi Low has described as a "minor" problem in Die Mannschaft's final session, in Sochi, ahead of Sunday's meeting with Cameroon.
Can hobbled off, withdrawing from the session having gone through little more than the warm up and some short ball drills. The Reds star was in discomfort on the sidelines, seemingly suffering with a knee problem having got his studs stuck in the turf while attempting to turn and make a challenge.
Bravo declared fit
Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi says Claudio Bravo is fit again and could start in goal against Australia at the Confederations Cup on Sunday. Bravo hasn't played since April 27, when he injured his calf for Manchester City in a derby game with Manchester United. 'Claudio is fit, he's managed to train the last couple of days just like his other teammates,' said Pizzi. 'He's ready and available to play.'
Huddersfield sign Laurent Depoitre
Huddersfield have announced the signing of Belgium striker Laurent Depoitre from Porto. The newly-promoted side made their first signing since clinching promotion to the Premier League, with the 28-year-old joining for an undisclosed fee. Depoitre, a Belgium international, is recognised as a physically-imposing striker and has signed a two-year deal to join the Terriers after making just 10 appearances since joining Porto at the start of last season.
Vuckic completes Twente deal
Newcastle United midfielder Haris Vuckic has completed a move to Twente. The 24-year-old Slovenian, whose contract with the Magpies runs out at the end of this month, has agreed a deal which will keep him at the Dutch club for the next three seasons. Vuckic leaves St. James' Park having made a total of 20 appearances for the club since his arrival in 2009. He spent time out on loan at Cardiff City, Rotherham United, Rangers, Wigan Athletic and Bradford City.
Kilmarnock complete double signing
Kilmarnock have signed teenage defender Daniel Higgins on a two-year contract. The 19-year-old was formerly on the books of Celtic, before moving to Dundee on a free transfer in January of this year. Kilmarnock have also signed Alan Power, who comes to Scotland after six years at Lincoln City. The 29-year -old has signed a two-year deal at Rugby Park.
Valverde joins Deportivo La Coruna
Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde will join Deportivo La Coruna on loan for next season. Valverde, 18, scored three goals in 30 appearances for Real's Castilla team last season, helping the team finish 11th in the Segunda B division. He recently played for Uruguay at the Under-20 World Cup in South Korea, winning the Silver Ball as the competition's second best player behind Dominic Solanke of England.
Athletics place Pinder on 10-day DL
The Oakland Athletics placed infielder Chad Pinder on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with a left hamstring strain. Pinder was removed from Friday night's game against the Chicago White Sox in the sixth inning because of the injury. Pinder, 25, has started 39 games for the A's this season at five different positions. He hit safely in six of his last eight games, going 9-for-31 (.290) with three doubles, a home run, and seven RBIs during that stretch.
McCullers to return for Astros against Mariners
With the lead in the American League West more than a dozen games, the Houston Astros had the luxury of being cautious. So when right-hander Lance McCullers Jr., the league's pitcher of the month for May, felt discomfort in his lower back a couple of weeks ago, the Astros didn't hesitate to put him on the 10-day disabled list. "If I had to miss time, for something totally unrelated to my arm, it might as well be right now," said McCullers, who is scheduled to be activated from the disabled list Saturday to start against the Seattle Mariners. "I feel good and ready to get back out there."

Ricciardo wins in Baku
Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo claimed victory in an action-packed Azerbaijan Grand Prix that saw title rivals Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel come together behind a safety car on Sunday. The race was temporarily stopped after 22 laps because of debris littered across the Baku city circuit. Valtteri Bottas snatched second place from Williams' Lance Stroll in the final straight, as Vettel finished fourth ahead of Hamilton to extend his championship lead to 14 points.
Hamilton beats Bottas to Azerbaijan pole
Lewis Hamilton delivered another stunning qualifying performance to claim pole position for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, ahead of team-mate Valtteri Bottas. Kimi Raikkonen beat Sebastian Vettel to third, while Verstappen overcame further engine vibrations early in the session to secure fifth on the grid.
Alonso and Vandoorne will be given respective 40- and 35-place grid penalties, for taking on several new power unit elements, with Vandoorne also running a fresh gearbox. Jolyon Palmer was unable to take part in qualifying, after his car caught fire in FP3 and sustained significant damage, leaving him at the back of the grid. However, unless he and Renault opt to make changes and start from the pit lane, the Briton is set to start ahead of the heavily-penalised McLaren drivers.
