Premier League clubs have broken their own record for combined shirt sponsorship deals, with the 20 clubs generating £313.6 million for the 2018-19 season, a rise of £31.8m on last year Sportingintelligence.com has revealed. This is ‘only’ for the main sponsors on the fronts of the shirts. Sleeve sponsors are paying a further £46m to the 20 clubs combined.
Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has approached West Ham over the possibility of taking Jordan Hugill on loan.
The Daily Mirror claims that Manuel Pellegrini is ready to join the chase for Chelsea’s Danny Drinkwater with West Ham still keen to reinforce in midfield. The tabloid also repeats the claim that wants to beef up their attack with Porto’s 23-goal marksman Moussa Marega.
