Celtic interested in signing Besiktas defender Dusko Tosic

  Celtic interested in signing Besiktas defender Dusko Tosic Celtic are reportedly interested in signing Besiktas defender Dusko Tosic when the January transfer window opens, according to Turkish outlet Fotospor. He has, however, also been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, who are apparently willing to pay Besiktas £8m to get him. The 32-year-old would add competition at Celtic Park for places in the centre of defence whilst he can also play at left-back too. Celtic are said to be hoping to pay around £3m for the Serbian defender, which is £5m short of the reported amount Spurs would be willing to spend as they look to add some cover for Toby Alderweireld, who will be out until February at the earliest. With Tosic ,32, being in the latter part of his career, and with Besiktas having brought in a replacement in Domagoj Vida, he may wish to look elsewhere for more minutes and if that’s the case, he could prefer a move to the Scottish champions as his chances of forcing his way into the Tottenham side ahead of Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Davinson Sanchez and Eric Dier, seem remote at best. If Spurs have indeed made an £8m offer, Celtic would almost certainly have to up their current offer to even have a chance of signing the Serbian international.

RONDA ROUSEY is reportedly due to return to WWE – and it could be for a MAMMOTH WrestleMania match with Charlotte Flair. The UFC star has been on a hiatus from the Octagon since her defeat to Amanda Nunes last December.

What had been rumored for months now appears close to becoming a reality: Ronda Rousey is set to join the WWE.

That’s according to USA Today, which cited two people close to Rousey in reporting Wednesday that the former UFC champion is “finalizing details” of a contract with the professional wrestling company.

Rousey, who hasn’t had an MMA fight since December 2016, has offered indications that she was interested in the WWE. Reports emerged in August that she was learning pro wrestling moves, and she was spotted at the time speaking with WWE executive Triple H at a taping for an all-female tournament.

Mel B's ex attacks singer over soured divorce deal

  Mel B's ex attacks singer over soured divorce deal Mel B's estranged husband Stephen Belafonte has accused the pop star of violating their divorce agreement again by blocking his access to one of their homes. The film producer has gone to court to demand a Los Angeles judge force the singer, full name Melanie Brown, to stick to the terms of the deal they signed last month (Nov17). According to his new paperwork, obtained by TMZ.com, Brown agreed to let Belafonte into one of their properties to make repairs and help to sell the house, but she is now reportedly refusing to allow him entry. Belafonte claims he already has a realtor in place, who has found a potential cash buyer, but he is unable to move forward with the sale because of Mel's alleged actions. He has also taken issue with the former Spice Girls star over custody of their daughter Madison, claiming he was recently due to pick the six-year-old up from school, but arrived to find Brown's nanny had already collected the child. Brown's representatives have yet to respond to the latest dispute, which emerges just days after the two parties clashed over similar issues. Last week (ends08Dec17), Belafonte complained that Brown had been late with her first spousal support payment after agreeing to hand over a total of $6.5 million (£4.8 million) in their divorce deal, while he also grumbled after the Wannabe hitmaker reportedly denied him access to their former marital home to collect his belongings. The singer's lawyer immediately hit back at the claims, insisting she was only a few days late with the support funds and had already cut him a cheque for December's (17) instalment. She also accused Belafonte of being unreasonable in refusing to give the star any advance notice about when he planned to stop by the family house. Mel filed for divorce to end their almost 10-year marriage in March (17).

The Ronda Rousey to the WWE rumors are starting to heat up again. According to FightFul.com, there’s mutual interest between Ronda and the WWE to join forces and the former UFC champion has reportedly started taking the first steps to learn her way inside a ring.

Rousey was ostensibly there to cheer for her friend Shayna Baszler, a former UFC fighter competing in the tournament, but she wound up in a WWE segment that was shown in September. Rousey and her friends and MMA training partners Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir were confronted by a trio of leading WWE performers in Charlotte Flair, Bayley and Becky Lynch.

No words were spoken, except by Rousey, who told the WWE stars, “Name the time. Name the place,” then added, “Oh, not today? I’ll be waiting to hear from you.”

That scene ramped up speculation that Rousey would soon be performing in the ring for WWE, on a more permanent basis than her one-off appearance at 2015’s WrestleMania 31, when she teamed with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to clash with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. It seems likely at this point that the WWE will continue a story line in which the former “Four Horsewomen” of MMA, Rousey, Baszler, Duke and Marina Shafir, tangle with the WWE’s current “Four Horsewomen,” Flair, Bayley, Lynch and Sasha Banks.

Nerlens Noel's poor work ethic reportedly keeping him on Mavericks' bench

  Nerlens Noel's poor work ethic reportedly keeping him on Mavericks' bench Why can't a young talent like Nerlens Noel crack the Mavericks' rotation? Apparently the former Kentucky standout just isn't trying hard enough.Dallas is unlikely to suddenly turn it around this season, which only makes it more confusing to see 23-year-old center Nerlens Noel sitting on the bench game after game. After signing a $4.2 million qualifying offer this past summer, Noel has disappeared from Rick Carlisle's rotation other than a few minutes in garbage time. He hasn't played more than six minutes in a game since logging 14 in a loss to the Timberwolves on Nov. 4.

People close to Ronda Rousey are saying that she's close to signing a contract to become a WWE Superstar. # Ronda Rousey #MMA #Pro Wrestling #UFC # WWE .

WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon is making it very clear that the WWE has their sights set on the baddest woman in the UFC. Stephanie gave her thoughts on Rousey yesterday in a USA Today article.“Our fans love Ronda . Ronda has this cross platform appeal in terms of all forms of [ ]

Duke and Shafir have reportedly also been training to cross over into pro wrestling. Their nickname with Rousey and Baszler was an homage to the Ric Flair-led “Four Horsemen” of the 1980s and ’90s.

Rousey has long been known as a big fan of pro wrestling, even as she rocketed to fame as an Olympic bronze medalist in judo and then became a dominant force in MMA. The UFC’s first female fighter, Rousey began her MMA career 12-0, usually dispatching her foes shortly into the first round, and won acclaim for her skills, looks and charisma.

However, a stunning loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 in November 2015 punctured her aura of invincibility, and after taking more than a year to recover and attend to a burgeoning acting career, Rousey was knocked out in just 48 seconds by Amanda Nunes at UFC 207.

That will almost certainly stand as Rousey’s final MMA fight, as even UFC President Dana White has said he doesn’t expect her back in the octagon. Meanwhile, she has appeared this year on NBC’s “Blindspot,” and is filming scenes for a Mark Wahlberg movie called “Mile 22.”

MMA Weekly reported Wednesday that, as production on that film is expected to last until February, Rousey would not be a full-time member of WWE but would participate in some of the company’s most high-profile events over the coming year. That will likely include an appearance at WrestleMania 34 in April.


West Brom linked with Edwin Gyasi .
West Brom are reportedly taking a keen interest in Ghana international Edwin Gyasi. According to reports, as cited by the Nottingham Post, the Baggies are among a host of clubs interested in signing the winger, who has been in good form so far this season. Gyasi has been plying his trade in Norway with Aalesund and has been one of their star performers. He has netted on seven occasions and has been catching the eye of many English clubs. The 26-year-old’s good form this season has seen him earn international recognition. He was rewarded with his first international call-up three months ago and has since been a regular for Ghana. Gyasi netted his first international goal against Egypt in November. However, if West Brom are to land Gyasi, they will face fierce competition. It’s stated in the report that Swansea City are also tracking the wide man, along with Nottingham Forest and Sunderland. Gyasi has just a year remaining on his deal in Norway.
