    LONDON (AP) — Tom Holland is trading in his Spidey suit for some tap shoes. The “Spider-Man” star told The Associated Press Sunday that he plans to play Fred Astaire in an upcoming biopic. “Oh, I am playing Fred Astaire,” Holland said at an event in London. “Yeah, I am.” Producer Amy Pascal recently said she wanted Holland to play Astaire, but Holland had yet to comment on the possibility until now. While Holland’s dance background hasn’t necessarily been highlighted in his superhero films, the 25-year-old did play the title role in “Billy Elliott: The Musical” from 2008 to 2010. Holland said he still needs to read the Astaire script, which just came in a week ago. “I haven’t read it yet. They haven’t given it to me,” Holland added. “Amy Pascal has the script. She FaceTimed me earlier. I was in the bath and we had a lovely FaceTime.” But before he steps into Astaire’s shoes, Holland has another Spider-Man movie to unspool on the world: “No Way Home,” which hits theaters on Dec. 17.

    A MAN who dresses up as Father Christmas says some of his family are still in the dark about his alias. Michael Facherty has been donning Santa Claus attire over the festive period for 35 years but it's a well-kept secret. 5'My family don't know I dress up as Santa - I've kept it a secret for years'Credit: Michael Facherty 5His grotto is currently closed but that doesn't stop him from bringing joy to othersCredit: Michael Facherty Known as 'Henley Santa', Michael started out his Father Christmas career after playing the figure for his children's school.

    NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Jordan Spieth first almost went out of turn. Then he had his ball teed up a fraction ahead of the marker before Henrik Stenson pointed it out. Turns out that was the least of their problems on the ninth hole Sunday at the Hero World Challenge. They were playing from the 17th tee. To spice up the final round at Albany, the PGA Tour moved the tee box forward on the par-5 ninth hole to allow more players a chance to reach the green in two. They used the original ninth tee for the par-3 17th so the hole would play a little shorter and over the water. Both tee boxes had a large white sign indicating the hole. Spieth and Stenson didn’t notice. “We kept our heads down off the finishing out on hole No. 8 and walked to the 9 tee box that we did on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and put the ball down and hit some beautiful tee shots,” Stenson said. “Then when we went down to the balls, the rules official...

    Nicole Kidman and her "Being the Ricardos" co-star Javier Bardem opened up about what it was like to get to know the real-life characters they embody, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.  The duo stars in the upcoming movie from writer Aaron Sorkin that details a particularly eventful week in the life of the couple who were married on-screen and off while working on the show "I Love Lucy" from 1951 to 1957. To promote the film’s Dec. 10 release, the duo has been discussing in-depth what it was like to both learn about their real-life counterparts as well as capture the unparalleled chemistry they had together.  "I mean, all of it. All of it," Kidman said when asked by CBS Sunday Morning what surprised her about Lucille Ball. "The way [she and Desi] built a production company, how they were such a team. I didn't know how clever she was, how she'd always say she wasn't funny. So, I mean, you name it, I didn't know it!" Bardem, meanwhile, noted that he was struck by the "powerful love story" at...
    RALF RANGNICK said he wants his Manchester United team to be ‘pressing monsters’ during his brief reign. And the big question is – can Cristiano Ronaldo still do that just a couple of months short of his 37th birthday? 3Cristiano Ronaldo played 90 minutes in Ralf Rangnick's first game in charge of Man UtdCredit: EPA 3The German boss saw his side beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at Old TraffordCredit: EPA The new interim boss had talked about how physically fit the Portuguese superstar looked in Thursday’s 3-2 thriller against Arsenal. Ronaldo scored twice in the second-half that night as he once again got the Red Devils out of a hole. Rangnick said: "Having seen Cristiano in the second half on Thursday at the age of 36, he’s an amazing top professional. “At his age, I've never seen a player who is still that physically fit. He's still a player who can easily make the difference. "You always have to adapt your style or your idea of football to the players you have available, not vice versa." And the new boss proved...
    Tiger Woods joined the broadcast booth for his Hero World Challenge, and what he saw from Collin Morikawa must have looked familiar. Morikawa carved up Albany Golf Club to build a five-shot lead Saturday over Brooks Koepka, and too many pursuers faded from contention with a series of mistakes that only made another victory look inevitable for Morikawa. With an 8-under 64 — the first bogey-free round of the week — Morikawa took a big step toward reaching No. 1 in the world. "You love being in these spots and you don’t get them every week," Morikawa said. "You wish you did. But when you do, you want to take advantage of them. So hopefully, we can take advantage tomorrow." CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Morikawa chipped in for eagle on the par-5 third hole.

And then he shifted into another gear with a series of smart shots he executed flawlessly, a few par putts to keep momentum and par save from the bunker on...
    Getty Payton Pritchard of the Boston Celtics. Multiple members of the Boston Celtics roster have ties to Portland, from head coach Ime Udoka and the majority of his coaching staff to sophomore point guard Payton Pritchard. Pritchard grew up in Oregon, playing basketball at youth, high school, and college levels, making him somewhat of a hometown hero. So, when the sophomore guard got hot against the Portland Trail Blazers, you could understand the excitement on the bench and in the stands. “It feels good to come back and play in your hometown. Obviously, I played high school ball here, grew up here, and then played college ball. So, you know, Oregon is a special place to me. For me and our team to come out here and play well and get a win on this West Coast trip feels good,” Pritchard told the media after he dropped 19 points in the Celtics’ latest win.  PP PUTTING ON A SHOW ???? pic.twitter.com/qn9X1V7lhD — Boston Celtics (@celtics) December 5, 2021 Following the game, some sections of NBA fans stated that...

    LESLEY LLOYD refused to allow sexist jibes to derail her pursuit of playing football for Southampton Ladies. And the former Saints skipper says it is a ‘dream’ to see how far the Women’s FA Cup has come since she won the first trophy 50 years ago. 2Lesley Lloyd made history by leading Southampton to win the first Women's FA Cup trophy in 1971 Lloyd, 74, was 24 when Saints made history in May 1971 by becoming the first team to win the Cup following a 4-1 win over Stewarton Thistle. That year the FA lifted a ban on women playing football that had stood for 50 years when officials deemed the game as ‘quite unsuitable for females’. Lloyd said: “We obviously had this scenario with a lot of men saying, ‘well ladies shouldn’t be playing football, etc, etc, etc’ and that’s how it went on. “But then we used to have some come up and watch us and, in the end, we had more men than ladies watching.” Today Lloyd will be among a host of Cup final captains attending...
    The Philadelphia Eagles are playing the New York Jets on Sunday, but will quarterback Jalen Hurts be active? The Philadelphia Eagles lost to the New York Giants 13-7 last week, where quarterback Jalen Hurts threw three brutal interceptions on the day. Throughout the week, however, Hurts was limited in practices due to an ankle injury picked up in the loss. With a game against the New York Jets looming, will Hurts start under center for the Eagles? According to Eagles reporter Derrick Gunn, Hurts will not play against the Jets on Sunday. Instead, Gardner Minshew will be getting the start in his place. John Clark of NBC Sports was told that Hurts was a game-time decision, with Minshew receiving a lot of reps at the team’s walkthrough on Saturday. Jalen Hurts is out for tomorrow ..

    PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA – NOVEMBER 08: Ben Roethlisberger #7 of the Pittsburgh Steelers warms up before a game against the Chicago Bears at Heinz Field on November 08, 2021 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (Photo by Emilee Chinn/Getty Images) With Ben Roethlisberger reportedly expecting this season to be his last playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers, here are three potential replacements from the college level. The Pittsburgh Steelers have long needed a contingency plan in place for veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. He did return for 2021 on a reworked deal, but his status with the Steelers beyond that was anyone’s guess. It appears the former 2004 first-round draft pick has an idea what the future holds for him. According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Roethlisberger told former teammates and members of the organization that he expects this to be his final season playing for the Steelers. Perhaps the easiest way for Pittsburgh to address the quarterback position this offseason is to select a rookie in the 2022 NFL Draft. While it is far from the greatest class, there are some enticing options. Sure...
    The No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs will play the No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2021 SEC Championship Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA. With potentially two College Football Playoff berths on the line, the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs will take on the No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2021 SEC Championship Game. Georgia enters play at 12-0, winners of the SEC East and one of two undefeated teams left in the country. The Dawgs may want to win this game to knock their perpetual nemesis out of the playoff picture, but Georgia is getting into the big dance no matter what happens.

    Getty Tom Brady keeps playing for the one achievement that slipped away almost 15 years ago. While Tom Brady keeps shattering NFL records at 44 years old, Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans have the 2007 New York Giants to thank. That Giants team spoiled Brady’s chance at a perfect 19-0 season with the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. Brady shares in the upcoming episode of “Man in the Arena” how that loss drove him to play instead of retire early according to NESN’s Zack Cox, who got a sneak preview. “Had we won that game — I don’t know, I’m not a big hypothetical guy — but maybe the desire is a little bit different, if you’re looking at a silver lining. Maybe the desire to reach that point, maybe I would have been fulfilled — not to stop playing at that time, but I don’t know. Maybe I’d play another seven or eight years, and maybe I’m fulfilled. Maybe not.” Was able to get an early look at Ep. 4 of "Man in the Arena," which...
    THOMAS TUCHEL revealed struggling Saul Niguez has been used as a wing-back in Chelsea training. The midfielder signed on loan this summer from Atletico Madrid but after seven games he has struggled. 2Thomas Tuchel revealed struggling Saul Niguez has been used as a wing-back in trainingCredit: Getty On his debut against Aston Villa in September and in his most recent game at Watford, Niguez was hooked at half-time. But with Ben Chilwell, 24, out injured and Marcos Alonso, 30, Chelsea's only other recognised wing-back, Tuchel said the Spaniard has been tested in defence. He said: "I think he could play in a wing-back role. "We sometimes do this in training, that’s why we have the impression he could be a good fit. Maybe in the next games, we have to try it." Niguez, 27, has played on the left side of midfield before, but never in the backline. He was subbed off for Thiago Silva, 37, at Vicarage Road with centre-back Trevoh Chalobah, 22, moved to midfield as Chelsea eventually won 2-1. Most read...

    A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Saturday: ENGLAND Chelsea leads Manchester City in the Premier League by a point but manager Thomas Tuchel has not been happy with his side’s last two performances. Chelsea is at West Ham in the lunchtime kickoff and City plays at Watford in the late game. Between the fixtures, Liverpool, which is in third place two points behind Chelsea, plays Wolverhampton. Pep Guardiola’s City is almost back at full strength with Kevin De Bruyne back in training after contracting coronavirus. Ilkay Gundogan, John Stones and Kyle Walker, who missed Wednesday’s win for the defending champions at Aston Villa with knocks, are back in contention. Last-placed Newcastle hosts Burnley, which is also in the relegation zone, still searching for its first win after 14 rounds. Southampton, which is two places but five points above the drop zone, plays ninth-placed Brighton.

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson spoke on how his tag skills translated to football — and how he’s undefeated at the game.  If Lamar Jackson has proved anything in the NFL, it’s that the 2019 NFL MVP is not easy to catch.

    Robert Griffin III is still training to play in the NFL while enjoying his duties as an ESPN college football analyst. RG3 may have even found a way to be in two places at once. The 2012 AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year is an investor in holographic telepresence startup PORTL Inc. The company’s first product, the Epic PORTL Hologram Machine, allows people to beam in from remote locations for human-sized, life-like interactive communication. “Maybe I can call the game from the hotel room with the team,” Griffin joked. “But, seriously, PORTL is the wave of the future. … This is an opportunity not only to affect the market of advertising, marketing, to beaming people different places for concerts or for meetings.

    Several Connecticut residents are feeling lucky after cashing in CT Lottery tickets with six-figure prizes. On Monday, Nov. 29, a Trumbull resident cashed in a winning $300,000 “$1,000,000 Golden Riches” scratch-off lottery ticket that was sold at the Trumbull Super Stop on Main Street in Fairfield County. The winner chose to remain anonymous. That same day, Coventry, Rhode Island resident Alison Huffman won the top prize in “$100,000 Cashword 11” for a $100,000 prize on a ticket sold in Windham County at Super Stop and Shop on Killingly Commons Drive in Dayville. The following day, New Haven County resident Marcos Betancourt, of Meriden, won a $100,000 prize playing “MEGA Multiplier!” on a ticket sold in Hartford County at Cumberland Farms in Rocky Hill. According to CT Lottery, “when a winning scratch ticket is validated through a Lottery Retailer's terminal, the remaining number of unclaimed prizes for that prize level is automatically updated reflecting one less prize. Until the individual or group presents their winning ticket for claim at CT Lottery Headquarters, the identity of a winner is unknown.” Those three...
    Getty Miles McBride guards Cade Cunningham. The New York Knicks made the decision to not only bench starting point guard Kemba Walker, but remove him from the lineup entirely. Going forward, the Knicks will be playing with one less point guard, but instead of starting Derrick Rose, Alec Burks got the nod. Coach Tom Thibodeau explained that he didn’t want a bunch of small guards playing at the same time, and with Rose and Quickley already filling that role, there was no room for Walker. Perhaps this is why rookie point guard Mile McBride isn’t getting much work in New York, but is instead shining in Westchester where the team’s G-League affiliate plays. In an effort to get him some playing time, he’s been moving back and forth between Westchester and New York, but he’s shown that he’s ready to go at moment’s notice. His most recent G-League performance showed that he might be able to provide a scoring punch for the Knicks if he’s able to get playing time.Is McBride Ready? Miles McBride is ON FIRE! ????????...

    The Dallas Cowboys playing a hurt Ezekiel Elliott against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night has left many confused. The Dallas Cowboys traveled down to New Orleans hoping to bring an end to their losing streak. There were questions as to whether running back Ezekiel Elliott would play against the Saints, or rest up a knee injury. The latter seemed like a logical option, as Tony Pollard has been playing at a high-level this season. Instead, the Cowboys played Elliott in the Saints game and gave him the majority of the carries. That left many on Twitter confused, considering they have a healthy Pollard at their disposal.

    It’s hard to watch the current saber-rattling between U.S. and Russian officials without cursing, loudly and inappropriately, at the increasingly stern warnings and feverish talk of war. Weeks of escalating tensions and brazen fuckery by Russia resulted in U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken engaging in a polite staredown in Stockholm on Thursday with his counterpart Sergei Lavrov. It was the first high-level meeting between the two sides since Moscow began to amass up to 90,000 troops on the Ukrainian border, setting off alarm bells in the West about a possible invasion that only got louder as Russia deliberately stoked fears about military action. Ahead of the meeting, the pressure was on the U.S. to push back. “The Russian-backed troops were actually laughing, as if to them it was all one great, big mindfuck.” It’s no coincidence that the Kremlin began to up the stakes just before Thursday’s meeting. First, there was the claim—refuted by Ukraine—that Ukrainian spies were caught red-handed as they prepared to set bombs off throughout Russia. Then, of course, came the predictable gaslighting by Vladimir Putin’s...
    Denver Nuggets Nikola Jokic had the final say on the Jokic-Morris feud by blaring the Serbian national anthem in a Miami nightclub after the Nov. 29 win.  The heated feud between Nikola Jokic and Markieff Morris began on Nov. 8 after Jokic reacted to Morris with a dirty play. The moment caused Jokic, Morris and a shouting Jimmy Butler to incur fines, resulted in a neck injury for Markieff Morris. It then spun out into a family feud involving the Jokic Brothers and Marcus Morris. With bad blood engendered between them, Jokic headed to Miami with the Nuggets to take on the Heat for a second time. Once again, the Nuggets came away with a victory, setting back the third-ranked from the No. 2 spot over the Chicago Bulls. Basking in the glory of victory, Jokic took to the Miami streets to celebrate his win. Apparently, nothing makes the 6-foot-11 Serbian national swell with pride quite like the Serbian national anthem, which had Jokic beaming. With glow sticks and a lighted sign that read “Nikola Jokic NBA MVP”, a...

    MSNBC’s Chuck Todd went on an angry tear against Republicans for their “stupid” grandstanding with their refusal to raise the debt ceiling. Todd anchored Meet The Press Daily on Tuesday and recapped the news that Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen appeared before the Senate Banking Committee. Yellen offered an optimistic view of the U.S. economy, but she urged Congress to raise the debt ceiling before a default on the December 15th deadline. “America must pay its bills on time and in full,” Yellen said. “If we do not, we will eviscerate our current recovery. In a matter of days, the majority of Americans wld suffer financial pain as critical payments, like social security checks and military paychecks, would not reach their bank accounts and that would likely be followed by a deep recession.” From there, Todd went on an irate tangent directed at lawmakers who are keeping Congress in a stalemate over the debt ceiling: “Aren’t you embarrassed by the silliness of this debt limit thing that we go through? This shenanigan? Just, shame on...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/CNN) – Tiger Woods says he will never play golf full time again. In an exclusive interview with Gold Digest, he spoke about his golfing future for the first time since his car crash earlier this year. READ MORE: Car Smashed Into Fort Lauderdale Business, Driver Taken To Hospital“I think something that is realistic is playing the tour one day, never full time, ever again, but pick and choose, just like Mr. (Ben) Hogan did,” Woods told interviewer Henni Koyack. “Pick and choose a few events a year and you play around that. You practice around that, and you gear yourself up for that. And you play. I think that’s how I’m going to have to play it from now on. It’s an unfortunate reality, but it’s my reality. And I understand it, and I accept it,” he added. Woods began the remote interview from his South Florida home by walking into the room with what he called a slight “hitch” in his stride, evidence of the serious leg injuries suffered in a car crash near Los Angeles in...

    Getty Harrison Phillips warms up before a game against the Houston Texans. Harrison Phillips has been the highest-rated member of the Buffalo Bills defensive line this season — and doing it all while nursing a significant injury. The team revealed on Monday that Phillips tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during the preseason, and since then has been playing his way back to full health. Despite the ailment, Phillips has been able to turn in some strong performances and helped to anchor one of the league’s top defenses. The latest Bills news straight to your inbox!

    Just a week after getting the golf world stirring with a swing video, Tiger Woods opened up in an interview about his future playing on the PGA Tour. Tiger Woods sent every golf fan into a frenzy just over a week ago when he posted a short clip of him swinging on the range. That, naturally, got everyone speculating about when the arguable GOAT of the sport would be back playing on the PGA Tour again. On Monday, we got further clarity about what the future will hold for Woods. In an interview with Golf Digest, Woods opened up about his future, his recovery and much more. But when addressing what his return to the PGA Tour will look like, he had this to say. “I think something that is realistic is playing the tour one day — never full time, ever again — but pick and choose, just like Mr. [Ben] Hogan did.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers took a flyer on Mike Hilton five years ago, and the undersized cornerback repaid their faith by becoming one of the most versatile defensive backs in the NFL, a relentless 5-foot-9 tornado who maximized every last ounce of his talent. A talent that ultimately became too expensive to keep. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM When Hilton hit the open market last spring, the Steelers — grappling with a one-time-only unexpected dip in the salary cap because of the COVID-19 pandemic — had no recourse when Cincinnati offered Hilton a four-year, $24 million contract. It was the same with guard Matt Feiler and left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, who both walked in free agency for $7 million-a-year deals elsewhere for Los Angeles and Baltimore. While the Bengals, Chargers and Ravens spent money to address roster shortcomings, the Steelers were forced by the economics of the NFL to make unenviable choices to get under the cap. That included bringing back Ben Roethlisberger on a reduced salary, cutting cornerback Steven Nelson and linebacker Vince Williams (who later returned...
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton is beginning to experience the hardships of playing behind Carolina’s porous offensive line. And the results weren’t pretty on Sunday. Newton was sacked five times, threw two interceptions and finished 5 of 21 for 92 yards in Carolina’s 33-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins, which dropped the Panthers to 5-7 heading into the bye week. Newton has now lost his last 10 starts for Carolina dating back to the 2018 season, and the optimism over the team’s win on the road at Arizona three weeks ago — in which Newton scored two TDs coming off the bench — has vanished. For many Carolina fans, Newton’s return represented the answer to all that was hindering the Panthers after a year-and-a-half of struggles with Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Darnold at quarterback. But the reality is it’d be extremely difficult for any quarterback to succeed behind this offensive line, a unit that has been vastly ignored in recent drafts and needs an upgrade at every position except right tackle. Things got so out of control on Sunday...

    Cowboys’ star running back Ezekiel Elliot tells media he has been playing injured and hasn’t been given any time to heal up During media availability on Sunday afternoon, Ezekiel Elliott took a question about his lack of playing time and use in the Dallas Cowboys offense. Zeke’s response addressed that concern, but also shed some light on the running back’s health. Elliott told the media that during the Cowboys’ Week 4 matchup with the Carolina Panthers his knee was injured and he has been struggling ever since then. He says it supposedly gets stiff, but he is working to manage and push through the injury. Elliott would then go on to explain why he has not taken time off to deal with this injury. According to Zeke, none of the coaching staff or medical staff have approached him and suggested he take time off. Elliot expands further, saying he does not believe the possibility of him getting rest for his injury has even come up. Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott injured his knee vs. Panthers on Oct. 3.

    Quarterback Sam Huard might be Washington’s future, but the Huskies sure haven’t done the rookie many favors in the present. Like so many other aspects of UW’s season, the management of Huard’s playing time was all wrong. The crescendo came Friday night when Huard, in his first start, threw four interceptions in a 40-13 Apple Cup beat down that ended with Washington State planting its flag in Husky Stadium. The situation was entirely predictable: A rookie who had attempted just a handful of passes all season was asked to lead a depleted offense against a motivated opponent within the cauldron of a rivalry game. The Cougars were playing for a division title. The Huskies were playing out a rotten season. And Huard, with his UW blood, five-star credentials and promising future, was caught in the middle — with precious little help from his receivers or running game. It wasn’t exactly an ideal position for Huard to succeed. Everything about the experiment raised questions about his playing time — and not just Friday evening. It never seemed like the Huskies had...

    REAL MADRID fans are fuming after their hero Sergio Ramos backed team-mate and former Barcelona star Lionel Messi to win the Ballon d'Or. The two players were bitter rivals for years while playing for Spain's top two clubs. 2Sergio Ramos is tipping his foe-turned-friend Lionel Messi to win the Ballon d'OrCredit: Reuters But now they are winding down their careers playing for Paris Saint-Germain, with the pair playing in the same team for the first time at the weekend.

    After defeating the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, the New York Giants trolled their division rivals by playing a specific television theme song. The Philadelphia Eagles had the opportunity to gain ground on the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East. All they had to do was beat the New York Giants, who were coming off a dud performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week. Instead, it was the Eagles who laid an egg, as they lost to the Giants 13-7 on Sunday. How could things get more humiliating for the Eagles, you ask? Well, the Giants played the theme song of the hit television show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, as Eagles fans left MetLife Stadium.

    London (CNN Business)More than 20 months into the pandemic, the US job market has reached a milestone.What's happening: Weekly claims for unemployment benefits fell to 199,000 last week after seasonal adjustments, their lowest level since 1969. They hit a peak of 6.15 million in April 2020.So, does that mean employment conditions are back to normal? Not quite. "Although the plunge in [unemployment] claims was certainly welcome, it does not indicate a dramatic turn in the labor market," PNC chief economist Gus Faucher said in a note to clients. "Claims are highly volatile, especially around holidays."The reason claims are so low may also have to do with ongoing distortions in the labor market.Read More"Claims have been trending down as employers keep a tight hold on to their employees because of the labor shortages," observed Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group.Remember: Demand for workers is high, but the number of people actively seeking work has slipped.

    FULHAM are making a big push for Angers No 10 Angelo Fulgini and could meet the £18million price. The Cottagers know they will be losing Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa to either Napoli or even Crystal Palace at the end of the season. 1Angers midfielder Angelo Fulgini is being chased by Championship side FulhamCredit: Getty Eagles boss Patrick Vieira is a huge fan of the Cameroon international, who has been starring during his loan spell for the Napes outfit.

Palace thought they were doing a loan deal with Real Madrid for the Spanish striker last summer but he stayed in Italy. 1Roma loanee Borja Mayoral has been linked with a move to Crystal PalaceCredit: Getty Borja has amassed a mere eight appearances across all competitions ever since Mourinho took over from former manager Paulo Fonseca. The centre-forward got a lot more opportunities under Fonseca last season as he scored a total of 17 goals in 45 matches.

The Spaniard earned a senior call-up in 2015 and counts seven goals as well as four assists in 33 matches.
