Spurs outcast Eric Dier wanted by Aston Villa in January transfer swoop

first_imgASTON VILLA are considering a January transfer swoop for Eric Dier, according to the bookmakers.The Villains spent more than £130million in the summer after their return to the Premier League.2 Eric Dier could be a January transfer target for fellow Premier League side Aston VillaCredit: PA:Empics SportBut now they may be ready to go back into the market to bring in more top-flight experience.Dier, 25, is struggling this season, playing in just three matches.The form of Harry Winks and arrival of record-signing Tanguy Ndombele have seen the pair get the nod from Mauricio Pochettino in midfield.Dier came off the bench in the win over Southampton but played 90 minutes in the humiliating defeats to Colchester and Brighton.Poch has tried to pursuade the 40-cap England man to fight for his place at White Hart Lane.The manager said: “It has been difficult [for Dier]. Of course it is tough for him.“He has to wait through training and then of course he has the opportunity. He has to try to fight for his place.“We have a big squad, I need to take the decision performance by performance. The plan is the plan.”We are going to assess the player and then make the decision.”READY TO SELLBut now it is thought Spurs may be ready to let their man – who they signed from Sporting in 2014 – go, after more than 200 appearances.Some bookies have Dier at 10-1 to make the switch to Villa Park in January as the club desperately try and avoid relegation immediately back to the Championship.They currently sit 15th, one point clear of the drop zone but do have a long list of central midfielders.2Latest transfer newsLive Blogblues newsChelsea news LIVE – Latest updates from Stamford BridgeLive Blogunited newsMan Utd news LIVE – Latest updates from Old TraffordLive BlogGunners newsArsenal news LIVE – Latest updates from the EmiratesGossipGOING DUTCHChelsea ‘to grab Mbuyamba on free deal’ with defender set to leave BarcelonaDEPAY CHARTMan Utd flop Memphis used computer data and analytics to quit Old TraffordLive BlogBLUES NEWSChelsea news LIVE: Latest updates and transfer gossip from Stamford BridgeGossipFIT IN HIS BELEArsenal turn attention to Lyon striker Dembele as Lacazette replacementGossipGUNNER MAKE A MOVEArsenal weighing up transfer move for Barcelona star RafinhaJack Grealish, John McGinn, Marvelous Nakamba, Douglas Luiz, Conor Hourihane and Henri Lansbury are already in the West Midlands competing for places.Manchester United appears to be the most likely destination for Dier at 7-2 with Everton at 9-2 to sign him in January.Spurs’ London rivals West Ham and Crystal Palace are outside bets at 14-1.Tottenham star Eric Dier ‘cries’ after he finds out he’s dropped to a 79 rating in FIFA 20last_img read more

North Peace Airport considers leasing rate hikes

first_imgThe undisclosed increase was supposed to take effect on March 1st, but feedback from renters has prompted discussion with the North Peace Airport Services.Kandert says a firm number on the rate increase has yet to be established. Once the increased leasing fees take effect, the costs can be passed on to the consumer. But, Kandert says he doesn’t anticipate any significant fare-hikes, because airport fees represent only 4% of an airline’s operating cost. By Christine Rumleskie The North Peace Airport is looking at increasing its leasing fees soon.Acting Managing Director Mike Kandert confirmed on Wednesday that the airport is currently reviewing its leasing rates. – Advertisement -Kandert says it’s a fairly common practice for airports to adjust their leasing fees, based on the appraisal value of the land. The airport has recently undergone an appraisal, and Kandert says leasing fees will need to be bumped up.Currently, land rentals sit at 55 cents per square metre for serviced land, and 32 cents per square metre for unserviced land.Airport terminal space varies from $320 per square metre for counter space, to $132 per square metre for storage space.Advertisementlast_img read more

Fort Nelson paints a rainbow sidewalk

first_imgFORT NELSON, B.C. – The Northern Rockies Regional Municipality has painted a rainbow crosswalk next to the Northern Rockies Regional Recreation Centre as a way to acknowledge the LGBTQ2S+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, two-spirited) community.After the April 25th council meeting in which Regional Council requested a report on inclusivity options, this would lead to a report specific to rainbow crosswalks. The crosswalk from the recreation centre to the east parking area was chosen for its high pedestrian traffic and enhanced lighting that includes flashers.The rainbow sidewalk was supported by Council as a symbol of diversity and inclusion. In time for Pride Month, Council hope is that the sidewalk will start conversations about the current reality of discrimination based on sexuality, gender or race faced by members of the LGBTQ2S+ community.- Advertisement -To view more on the sidewalk; CLICK HERElast_img read more

AFC awarded walk-over against Nzoia

first_img0Shares0000AFC Leopards players celebrate Vincent Oburu’s goal during their Kenyan Premier League match against Bandari at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on April 28, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, May 1 – It seems to be the season of walk-overs; AFC Leopards were handed three free points on Wednesday afternoon after Nzoia Sugar failed to turn up at the Bukhungu Stadium following a stand-off over the match venue.The game had been lined up for live television at Bukhungu, but Nzoia which was the home team had stuck to their earlier stance that the game would be played at their alternate home-ground in Mumias. UPDATE | @nzoiasugarfc2 vs @AFCLeopardsAFC Leopards have been awarded their SPL 2018-19 Round 27 match against Nzoia Sugar on a 2-0 win and 3 points basis after their opponents failed to honour the match at the Bukhungu Stadium, Kakamega.— KPL (@TheOfficialKPL) May 1, 2019The men from Bungoma who ordinarily use the Sudi Stadium as their home turf went on to travel to Mumias for the game, disregarding a Kenyan Premier League communiqué that the game will be played in Bukhungu.AFC were present in Kakamega in time for the 2pm kick off, but their opponents were a now show, their official Twitter feed posting that they were warming up waiting for Ingwe.The team warming up at Mumias Complex.— NZOIASUGARFC (@nzoiasugarfc2) May 1, 2019The distance between Bungoma and Kakamega is approximately 60km away, a drive that would take an hour or less while the distance between Bungoma and Mumias is approximately 31km, a distance that would require a maximum of 40 minutes on the road.According to Nzoia, as the home team, they have the prerogative of choosing their desired home ground and with Sudi not cleared to host either Gor or AFC, their other option is only Mumias. However, they had played some games in Kakamega when Mumias had been closed down.This latest development comes just a week after Gor Mahia were also dished with three free points after Mount Kenya United failed to turn up for their match protesting over lack of pay.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
