After it was reported the Brighton were open to selling star midfielder Moises Caicedo this summer, Football Insider now claim that Arsenal are leading the race to sign the Ecuadorian youngster.

De Gea to be offered contract sweetener

According to The Sun, David de Gea will be offered a testimonial at Manchester United as part of talks regarding a new contract. The Spanish goalkeeper will see his current deal expire this summer and will be required to take a pay cut in order to land an extension – with the Red Devils topping that deal up with a special game to recognise his contribution to the club.

Selles unaware of any decision to appoint Martin

Ruben Selles, speaking after Southampton's defeat at Brighton, said the club haven't told him anything regarding Russel Martin taking the job. Martin has verbally agreed to become the new Southampton manager.

He said: "I know nothing. It hasn't changed anything in my position since we spoke on Friday. I have been respectful with the club to use all my knowledge to keep this team and the club together. I expect if something goes on like that before the Liverpool game, someone will come to me to clarify to me.

"I don't need to go to nobody. Everyone knows who I am and where I am and that I am the face of the club for the last three months and the reference for everybody. I expect that to happen for the last game against Liverpool.

"I didn't know about the update until Jordan [Press Officer] told me. I have a clear idea that I want to stay here until the Liverpool game, if something changes, that's not my decision. My focus has been on this week, a hard week for us, to prepare and to perform and try to win this game. I'm not worried about my future, my contract expires at the end of the season and what the club decides will be the right decision. I've already made my points a couple of months ago about this scenario so it's not my decision. I have no control of it, so I won't spend time on it."
