Chelsea wrapping up Ba's move to Bridge


chelsea: There was little movement at Stamford Bridge yesterday other than Demba Ba's (right) expected move to Chelsea still being concluded.

Tottenham: Spurs have revealed they had agreed a deal for former Manchester United defender Zeki Fryers, 20, after he left Old Trafford for Standard Liege in the summer.

STOKE: Ryan Shawcross, who made his England debut last year, signed a five-and-a-half-year contract to ward off any interest from bigger clubs.

A delighted Potters manager Tony Pulis said: "It's fantastic for us as a football club.

"We're really, really pleased to have him. He's been the bedrock of what we've been trying to do over the past five or six years and we're really pleased that he's finally agreed."

EVERTON: Phil Jagielka, 30, signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at Goodison Park until 2017.

Everton chief executive Robert Elstone said: "We are delighted Phil has agreed to commit his long-term future. Phil is a hugely important and influential player and I, like many Evertonians, look forward to seeing him play in a blue shirt for many years to come."
