The new English transfer deadline will be reviewed in September, Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore has said.

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore hopes defending champions Manchester City face a stiffer challenge in the coming season.

However, the North London club are the only team in the Premier League not to make a signing so far this summer and the transfer window shuts tomorrow (Thursday) at 5pm.

Collymore feels that Liverpool FC are likely to finish second next season ahead of Manchester United in third and Tottenham Hotspur in fourth.

Manchester City will have a new kit supplier from the 2019/20 season as part of a £50 million multi-club deal negotiated by parent company City Football Group.

Arsenal look set to change kit provider next season, according to the Daily Mail.

Even stronger sanctions targeting Iran's oil sector and central bank are to be re-imposed in early November. Last month, Trump offered to meet Iran's leaders.

At the same time, Everton have expressed their interest in Yerry Mina, Leicester City seek a Stefano Sturaro move from Juventus and Crystal Palace eye a Yannick Bolasie return from Everton.

"However, individually the players can improve", Guardiola said during the Sky Sports Premier League launch.

"But it was done for the reasons the clubs wanted to do it, for the purposes of not having a situation where clubs are threatened with players leaving to go to other Premier League clubs". It is going to be challenging, particularly for the promoted clubs, who effectively have two-and-a-half weeks less.

"I speak to clubs who say: "This is fantastic, we knew what the deadline was and we've worked to that".

Mauricio Pochettino's side finished a lofty third a year ago, but Wright is expecting things to be a lot more hard for them this time around.
