Michu agrees contract extension

Swansea legend Michu has agreed a contract extension with his club Burgos.

There had been speculation over his future as sporting director over the past few months due to a change of ownership at the club but that has now been put to bed, with a new deal penned. He will now remain in his position until 2027.

"Sometimes I come home and my parents ask me why I feel this way, but I feel indebted to Burgos. I think I would do it a little less if we could go up, although I don't think I can repay the love they (the fans) have given us," said the Asturian.

“We have to take into account where we come from, but we cannot make mistakes. The guys who belong to the squad have to have a change of mentality. We are starting from scratch and we have to reach 50 points as soon as possible, but the goal is to aim for the First Division, and that is to be appreciated."

Spanish outlet AS report Michu turned down offers in the UK and in his homeland to remain with Burgos.

Dhanda on the move

Yan Dhanda has said a fond farewell to Ross County as he is set for an impending move to Hearts.

The former Swansea man said his two years with County were the most enjoyable of his career so far.

He agreed a pre-contract move with the Edinburgh club earlier this year and reports for pre-season training next month.

“After an amazing two years at Ross County it’s time to move on. I want to thank everyone at the club for making me feel so welcome since the moment I arrived,” said Dhanda.

“This is the most I have enjoyed my football and I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to improve as a player as well as a person. It was an honour to have the privilege to captain this club and that will stick with me forever. I would like to thank the managers, staff and players that I have worked with here as well as the chief executive and chairman. Your support has been so important to me over my time here.

“To the fans, thank you for your love and support for the past two years. Hearing you sing my name is something I have dreamt of since [I was] a young boy. This club is staying in the Premiership where it belongs. See you all again very soon.”

Former bosses in Foxes' mix

Former Swansea managers Graham Potter and Steve Cooper are in the early running to become the next Leicester City boss.

Enzo Maresca's move to Chelsea is now a matter of when, not if, and as such a market has opened up on who will succeed him in the Foxes' dugout.

West Brom's Carlos Corberan is the current favourite with bookmakers, but Potter - who ironically was sacked by the Blues - is second in the running at 3/1.

Cooper, who last employed by Nottingham Forest, is further back at 8/1, with Mark Robins, Marti Cifuentes, David Moyes, Liam Rosenior and Carlos Cuesta ahead of him at the point of writing.
