Welcome to the Evening Standard’s LIVE coverage of the summer transfer window.
The Wales international will not feature in this evening pre-season friendly against his former club Tottenham.
Villa agree £11m Nakamba deal
Aston Villa are set to continue their shopping spree in the transfer market with the signing of Marvelous Nakamba from Club Brugge.
The clubs have agreed an £11m fee for the 25-year-old, who made 14 appearances in the Jupiler Pro league last season.
The Zimbabwe international is set to have a medical despite not yet agreeing personal terms, and there are complications over whether he will receive a work permit.
But if all goes to plan, Nakamba will become Villa’s 11th signing of the summer as manager Dean Smith splashes the cash.
Marvelous, if you’re a Villa fan!
Bale pictured in new Real kit
Gareth Bale has been included in the promotional pictures for Real Madrid’s new third kit, but the Welsh winger does not appear in the video published by Los Blancos on Monday.
Madrid launched their deep green strip, which they say is “inspired by technology and the evolution of the future, with the new Santiago Bernabeu stadium as the main reference”.
Bale features in one of the images on the club’s official website, along with Karim Benzema, Marcelo, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Isco, Lucas Vazquez, Alvaro Odriozola and Nacho.
But there no sign of the 30-year-old in the video, which includes the above players plus Marco Asensio, Dan Carvajal, Eden Hazard, Fede Valverde and Raphael Varane.
“You own the future is the concept that has been chosen to represent this jersey, which reminds us that successes achieved in the past never interfere in the future,” Real Madrd go on to add.
The kit, which uses “Climachill technology to absorb sweat”, is available in Adidas and Real Madrid outlets, as well as the club’s official website.
Skipper Sergio Ramos is missing from the pictures and the video altogether, along with Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo and summer signings Ferland Mendy, Luka Jovic and Eder Militao.
