Cape Town - Manchester United are now believed to be leading Chelsea in the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas. United are seen as less of a threat to the Catalan club due to their absence from the Champions league next season, which may well be in their favour when it comes to landing Fabregas.

Derby County have signed Newcastle United youngster Johnathan Mitchell. The teenage goalkeeper is excited to be joining a club on the up and looks forward to working together with goalkeeper coach Eric Steele.

Goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen, who signed a new deal at West Ham on Wednesday, may have some competition as the Hammers look to sign Manchester City's back-up keeper Costel Pantilimon.

Spain striker David Villa has joined Melbourne City for a spell Down Under next season.

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku could be off to Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan as part of a deal that will see Diego Costa join the Blues.
