Glenn Murray, Joe Bennett and Tomas Andrade join Bournemouth

first_img They also terminated the contract of goalkeeper Lee Camp, who thereafter joined Championship Rotherham. The arrival of Murray, for an undisclosed fee from Crystal Palace, ended manager Eddie Howe’s long-term pursuit of a proven Premier League goalscorer and is likely to be their most important of the summer. Bournemouth have impressed in possession but without scoring the goals required to secure more than four points from their opening four Premier League fixtures. Press Association “It feels great to finally be here,” Murray told Bouremouth’s official club website. “I’ve come across the club a lot in my career and it’s been great to see it progress. “The way the boys play football is very exciting. It’s front-footed and it will be nice to try and get some goals from it.” Left-back Bennett, who is to remain at the Vitality Stadium until January in a loan move from parent club Aston Villa, where he has also signed a one-year contract extension, will add more depth to a squad with limited Premier League experience and without the injured Tyrone Mings. “I’m really excited about the prospect of playing for AFC Bournemouth and hopefully helping them perform well this season in the Premier League,” Bennett said. “They’ve already made a positive start to the new season and, like everyone else, I’ve been really impressed with the fantastic job Eddie Howe has performed. They have a really good side. “The move happened really quickly. I trained this morning and then things started to develop. “It’s a good opportunity for me to add to the Premier League experience I’ve already amassed from my time at Aston Villa.” Andrade will remain on loan from Argentina’s River Plate until the end of the season, but will immediately join Bournemouth’s Under-21 squad, making first-team football unlikely. center_img Bournemouth concluded a busy final day to the summer transfer window with the signings of Glenn Murray, Joe Bennett and Tomas Andrade.last_img read more

Rory McIlroy ready to make winning comeback in Turkey

first_img ” I guess I always have the belief. The good thing for me is that I can draw on some of the great performances and the memories that I have from winning big tournaments and knowing that if I’ve done that before, there’s no reason why I can’t do that again.” McIlroy believes his putting has held him back since returning from injury, admitting it was more of a mental than a technical problem after finishing 26th in the Frys.com Open. “I felt like every time I missed the putt, there was a question that followed it; Did I pull it, did I misread it?” McIlroy added. “And so I’ve worked quite a bit on routine, trying to free myself up and simplify it a little bit instead. I felt like sometimes I was making it a little bit more complicated than it has to be. “I feel I’m a good putter. I feel like I hole out well. I definitely hole out much better than I used to do. And when I get my eye in, I’m really good. But I don’t get my eye in as much as I’d like to. I’ll always be somewhat of a streaky putter.” As for his ankle, McIlroy revealed he has stepped up his fitness regime recently, adding: ” I’m pretty much back to where I need to be. “I’ve started to train the way I was before the injury again, and I’m happy about that. So I’m trying to get my game back into the shape that I know that I can and feel like I’ve made a few steps in the right direction.” The last time Rory McIlroy competed in Turkey, he “gave up a bit” during his first match in the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final, lost his remaining two as well and finished last in the eight-man exhibition event. Consolation came in the shape of USD300,000, an afternoon on the beach with then-girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki and a first Race to Dubai title five weeks later following a brilliant victory in the DP World Tour Championship. Three years on, McIlroy contests this week’s Turkish Airlines Open looking to complete an injury-affected 2015 in style with a fourth win of the season and a third money list title in four years. “I feel like a lot’s happened and a lot of time has gone by since that last win of mine back in May (Wells Fargo Championship),” said McIlroy, who ruptured a ligament in his left ankle during a game of football with friends on July 4, ruling him out of the Scottish Open and the defence of his Open and WGC-Bridgestone Invitational titles. “I’m just trying to finish the season off well. I’d like to win the Race to Dubai for a third time, that would be a great achievement. “I’d like to win at least one of these last three events that I’m playing. That would make me feel better about the end of the year. “From when I injured my ankle at the start of July, if I was to go from then to the end of the season without another win, especially with how I was playing up until that point, it would be very disappointing. “So I’ve got three opportunities coming up to try and get a win or two on the board and end this year on a positive, to at least go into next year with a bit of momentum.” McIlroy, who enjoys a 271,214-point lead over Danny Willett in the Race to Dubai, will partner Willett and fifth-placed Shane Lowry for the first two rounds in Turkey and will also contest next week’s WGC-HSBC Champions in Shanghai and the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. The 26-year-old has slipped to third in the world rankings behind Jason Day and Jordan Spieth after the pair won three of the season’s four majors between them, but insists he is not concerned about sending his rivals a message. “I’m not thinking about those guys,” McIlroy added. “I’m just concentrating on myself and trying to get my game back to where I know that it can be, and if I can do that, then all the rest of that stuff will sort of take care of itself.

West Brom expect Newcastle target Saido Berahino to face Swansea on Tuesday

first_imgWest Brom have reiterated Saido Berahino will not be sold on transfer deadline day. Newcastle tabled a £21million bid for the 22-year-old on Sunday but the Baggies’ stance remains unchanged and they are not prepared to cash in on Berahino this month. He has a dead leg ahead of Tuesday’s visit of Swansea but is in the squad after scoring twice in Saturday’s 2-2 FA Cup draw with Peterborough. Berahino left the Albion training ground early on Monday afternoon after training and treatment to his injury. Boss Tony Pulis was unavailable for media duties as he was on personal and club business and assistant head coach Dave Kemp expects the England Under-21 international to stay beyond Monday’s 11pm deadline. Kemp said: “He’s still here, he’s been in this morning. He’s got a bit of a knock but he’s in the squad for tomorrow’s game. I’m expecting him to be here. The chairman deals with that side. “It was awkward today, he has a dead leg he picked up on Saturday and came out a bit sore, he’s gone home. With the media around that’s probably the best thing to do. “He’s here, he’s in the squad tomorrow.” Berahino made his first start since October against Peterborough at the weekend and has scored six times this term, after netting 20 last season. Their position has always been that they will not sell the forward this window. The Baggies signed Alex Pritchard from Tottenham on loan until the end of the season earlier on Monday having captured Sandro on loan from QPR last week. Chris Brunt (calf), James Morrison (hamstring), Callum McManaman (ankle) are out but Darren Fletcher (knee) and Ben Foster (ribs) should be fit to face Swansea. Berahino on Monday evening took to Twitter to apparently rule out the possibility of a deadline-day move away from The Hawthorns. Referencing his social media outburst in January, when he was denied a late move to Tottenham, Berahino wrote: ”Everyone waiting once again for the silly little spoilt boy to make same mistake so here you go. Goodnight all and thanks for the support.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Tax Expert: You Will Get Stimulus Check Even if you Owe Taxes

first_img(Washington, DC) — The Treasury secretary says financial relief for the coronavirus fallout is arriving this month. During a White House briefing, Steven Mnuchin announced the economic impact payments would be hitting direct deposit accounts within two weeks. He also reminded Social Security recipients they don’t need to file tax returns to get their share. The payments were part of the economic stimulus package signed by President Trump last month. The money should help Americans pay rent and put food on the table.A paper envelope written with the words “Rent Money $ ” is left tucked in a lighting pole in the Boyle Heights east district of the city of Los Angeles on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. It’s the first of the month, and rent is due for millions of Americans for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak turned the economy upside down. Most states and local governments have stopped evictions to give time for unemployment benefits and federal stimulus checks to arrive. But there is still plenty of worry that even if April’s payment is delayed, the rent will still come due before many industries are up and running again. Nearly 3.3 million people in the U.S. filed unemployment claims for the week of March 16, as the shutdown from the virus started. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)Tax expert, Lawrence Levy of Levy and Associates, explained to Jen and Bill on the South Florida Morning Show that even if you owe taxes, you will still get a stimulus check.
