Tottenham signs Fernado Llorente from Swansea
Tottenham have sealed the signing of forward Fernado Llorente from Swansea on a deal which runs until 2019.

Verge24 understands Spurs started negotiations to sign the 32-year-old late on Wednesday and agreed terms with Swansea on the deal on Deadline Day morning.

Swansea manager Paul Clement had said he was confident of keeping Llorente at the Liberty Stadium earlier this week but did admit “something can come out of absolutely nowhere” ahead of Deadline Day, and the Swans have managed to re-sign former player Wilfried Bony as a replacement.

Llorente joined Swansea from Sevilla last summer and scored 15 goals during his debut season in the Premier League, helping the Swans retain their top-flight status.

He previously played under Chelsea boss Antonio Conte when the pair were at Juventus, having previously made over 300 appearances for Athletic Bilbao.

Llorente had not featured for Swansea this season, having broken his arm while cycling on holiday.

“I’m very, very happy to join Tottenham, an amazing club,” Llorente told the Spurs website.

“I can only say that I come here to help Tottenham to win titles. I think they are working very, very good in the last years.

“I am 32 years old but I want to learn everyday.

“I think I can learn a lot of things off Harry (Kane) and all the players.

“I can learn with (Mauricio) Pochettino a lot and I am going to do my best here.

“I think I can do more things in my career and my dream is to do that here at Tottenham.”

Manchester United 1-2 Manchester City: Romelu Lukaku the Villain

Manchester City has extended their consecutive top-flight victory to 14 in dramatic 2-1 win over arch rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Goals from David Silva and Nicolas Otamendi gifted Pep Guardiola‘s men a well deserved win as they opened up an 11-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Marcus Rashford  capitalized on a defensive lapse from Otamendi and Fabian Delph in first-half stoppage-time, but United were unable to find a second as a stunning double save from Ederson denied Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata from snatching a point.

The defeat is United’s third defeat of the season brings their 40-match unbeaten home run to an end while strengthening City’s grip on the title after just 16 matches.

Manchester United will play against Bournemouth at the Old Trafford on Wednesday while City will look to continue on their quest for a premier league title when they travel to Swansea.
