New Fulham manager Mark Hughes has told keeper Mark Schwarzer that he will not be Arsenal's keeper any time soon. Schwarzer pleaded Hughes to be let go after Fulham declined an offer in May. Arsenal is looking to replace Manuel Almunia, and apparently Arsene Wenger is keen on making Schwarzer the keeper at the Emirates. Schwarzer, 37, had this to say about the possible move, "It's an amazing oppurtunity that I want to take."
Striker James Beattie has left Stoke on a transfer to Rangers where he has signed a 2 year contract with an optional 3rd year for an undisclosed fee. Beattie scored 10 goals in 38 league appearances for the Potters. Manager Tony Pulis had this to say about the move, "This is a fantastic opportunity for James to play at the highest level and I am sure he will be relishing the chance of Champions League football."

The new ball for the 2010-2011 Barclay's Premier League season has been unveiled. The new Nike Total 90 Tracer ball will be the ball used in the 380 total games played this year. The new ball was designed especially for better accuracy and touch. The Nike design team spent 18 months testing the new ball to make sure that it could keep up with the play with one of the world's most elite leagues. Stoke keeper Mark Sorensen believes that this ball is the best the Premier League has used. "We've been used to the Nike ball in the Premier League for 10 years now and it has progressed. I think it is a better ball now than when it started. A lot of research has gone into it," said Sorensen. Thanks Premier League
