Harry Kane Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been named in the England squad for the European Under-21 Championship finals.Spurs had reservations about their star striker going to the tournament in the Czech Republic after a long season, but coach Gareth Southgate named him among a 27-man party at a press conference on Wednesday.Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has been left out of the squad which will be reduced to 23 players for the tournament.Old Trafford boss Louis van Gaal said Shaw needed to rest this summer after an injury-plagued season, and the Red Devils full-back was left out of Southgate’s party for the tournament.Kane’s situation is complicated by the fact that Spurs play a friendly in Malaysia on May 27 and in Sydney three days later. The Under-21 squad is due to meet in early June, but Kane will join up later on.Everton defender John Stones is included in the squad for the tournament, which takes place in the Czech Republic from June 17-30.Senior internationals Ross Barkley, Raheem Sterling and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were eligible but have not been selected.England’s initial 27-man squad is as follows…GoalkeepersMarcus Bettinelli (Fulham)Jonathan Bond (Watford)Jack Butland (Stoke City)DefendersCalum Chambers (Arsenal)Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur)Luke Garbutt (Everton)Ben Gibson (Middlesbrough)Carl Jenkinson (Arsenal, loan to West Ham United)Michael Keane (Burnley)Liam Moore (Leicester City)John Stones (Everton)Matt Targett (Southampton)MidfieldersTom Carroll (Tottenham Hotspur, loan to Swansea City)Nathaniel Chalobah (Chelsea)Will Hughes (Derby County)Jake Forster-Caskey (Brighton & Hove Albion)Jesse Lingard (Manchester United)Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea)Alex Pritchard (Tottenham Hotspur)Nathan Redmond (Norwich City)James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)ForwardsBenik Afobe (Wolverhampton Wanderers)Patrick Bamford (Chelsea, loan to Middlesbrough)Saido Berahino (West Bromwich Albion)Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)Danny Ings (Burnley)Cauley Woodrow (Fulham) 1
Mateo Kovacic has underlined why Liverpool are reportedly tracking him so intently after a sublime moment of inspiration for Croatia.The Inter Milan midfielder, who is building a reputation for stupendous goals, improvised to score a backheel lob when played through on goal during his country’s friendly with Gibraltor.If you believe some reports, the Reds have already agreed personal terms with the 21-year-old, and their interest will only be reinforced by this magical finish.You can watch Kovacic’s strike above…
5. West Ham – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – The Hammers have gone big as they look to survive in the Premier League and ensure the Olympic Stadium plays host to top flight football next season. Alex Song returns, Angelo Ogbonna joins for Juventus, and Dimitri Payet arrives too. Taking Carl Jenkinson and Victor Moses on loan seems like good business. 20 20 2. Liverpool – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – James Milner, despite his large wages, is already looking key for the Reds, while Joe Gomez looks like he could be an inspired acquisition from Charlton. Nathaniel Clyne, Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino are also good buys, and Brendan Rodgers has also loaned and sold players the club desperately needed to get rid of. The one area that Reds fans might have hoped to see change was at centre back, but on the whole it looks a stronger squad than last season. 8. Leicester City – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Losing Esteban Cambiasso this summer was a huge blow for the Foxes but acquiring Christian Fuchs and Robert Huth on the cheap seem wise arrivals. Shinji Okazaki adds goals and experience in attack, Gokhan Inler should be a good signing, while Ngolo Kante could be a surprise hit. 11. Tottenham – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – A trio of defensive stars joining early in the summer see Spurs looking better at the back but leaving moves for Clinton NJie and Heung-Min Son so late, has undoubtedly cost them at least one win. Erik Lamela should have been loaned, at least, while failing to sell Aaron Lennon and Emmanuel Adebayor leaves them with unwanted players. 16. Swansea City – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Landing Andre Ayew on a free transfer appears to be one of the best signings of the summer but there doesnt seem much else to their business other than squad players to boost numbers at the Liberty Stadium. 20 20 Premier League sides have been buying and selling players all summer but, when it comes to the crunch, how good has their business actually been.Here at talkSPORT we’ve taken a look at all the moves which have taken place at each club and ranked every team’s trades.You can see how we’ve placed them all by clicking the right arrow above… 17. West Brom – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – The Baggies are another side going for solidity over style and substance. Tony Pulis looks like hes building a team who only want to finish just above the relegation zone and Salomon Rondon is the only man to get excited about, unless loanee Serge Gnabry can spice things up in attack too. 20 4. Crystal Palace – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – The Eagles move for Yohan Cabaye was a huge shock and is already paying off. Alex McCarthy and Bakary Sako should also prove shrewd signings. 12. Watford – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Theyve pretty much signed a whole new team at Vicarage Road, leaving them with a deep squad. Its an ageing group though which could hinder them against younger and quicker teams. 20 1. Manchester City – They may have cost the club a fortune but Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne will take Manuel Pellegrinis side to another level and theyre already favourites for the Premier League title. Nicolas Otamendis arrival will give Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala excellent competition, while theyve also ditched deadwood too. 13. Manchester United – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Matteo Darmian and Morgan Schneiderlin are solid signings, although they wont do the Red Devils disciplinary record any good. Bastian Schweinsteiger adds experience, although you have to wonder why Bayern let him go, and Memphis Depay should come good but theyve sold and loaned out a plethora of players who had something to offer. Louis van Gaal could regret the departures of Adnan Januzaj, Javier Hernandez, Angel di Maria and Robin van Persie. The David De Gea scenario is a mess and spending so much on Anthony Martial is a huge risk. 18. Sunderland – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Signing Younes Kaboul appears foolish, while Yann MVila has the potential to be either a huge success or a controversial figure. Its all a bit average. 20. Norwich – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Alex Neil has strengthened his midfield with Graham Dorrans and Youssouf Mulumbu, while Andre Wisdom (on loan) and Robbie Brady have been brought in at full-back. Striker Dieumerci Mbokani signing on loan represents their most exciting piece of business. 20 9. Bournemouth – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Theyve kept the core of their Championship winning side together, which is a huge feat. Their additional signings can only go on to complement and add to the Cherries and their survival hopes. The returning Max Gradel will definitely hand them some excellence going forward. 20 10. Chelsea – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – The signing of Pedro from Barcelona is a huge coup, while Radamel Falcao and Asmir Begovic add some real depth and adequately replace Didier Drogba and Petr Cech. Baba Abdul-Rahman could be an expensive bench-warmer but Kenedy seems like he might inject some excitement into the first-team. A huge number of players have left on loan, leaving the squad weak, though. And the failure to land target John Stones appears to have left Jose Mourinho short. 20 6. Aston Villa – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Tim Sherwood has signed some top talent from abroad with Jordan Amavi and Idrissa Gueye performing already. Adama Traore has been bright so far too, while Micah Richards and Scott Sinclair are shrewd free transfers. The squad has also been handily trimmed of some players on high wages. 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 3. Stoke – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Xherdan Shaqiri, Ibrahim Afellay, Marco van Ginkel and Glen Johnson are selection of really good signings, while Philipp Wollscheid and Joselu are competent players signed from the Bundesliga. Steven Nzonzi is a huge loss but getting the likes of Wilson Palacios, Robert Huth and Asmir Begovic off the wage bill is superb business from Mark Hughes. 14. Newcastle – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Georginio Wijnaldum and Florian Thauvin are looking like adding plenty of pace and flair to their attack, while Chancel Mbemba seems like an excellent acquisition. Aleksandar Mitrovic though, could be a mistake given his ill-disciplined start to life at St James Park. 20 19. Arsenal – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Were not sure what Arsene Wenger is up to but they really need another defensive midfielder and a world class striker. If they get them theyre title challengers, if they dont its more of the same for the Gunners. Petr Cech was a brilliant signing but he wont win them the title on his own. 15. Everton – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Roberto Martinez has got rid of some deadwood and kept hold of John Stones, but signing just Tom Cleverley, Gerard Deulofeu and £9.5m defender Ramiro Funes Mori leaves them a little light. 20 20 20 7. Southampton – Click the right arrow to find out which club we believe has done the best transfer business – Cedric Soares is impressing at right-back in place of Nathaniel Clyne and Jordy Clasie should be a fine replacement for Morgan Schneiderlin, along with Oriol Romeu, and Virgil van Dijk bolsters the backline. The Saints have also managed to shift deadwood like Jos Hooivled, Artur Boruc and Dani Osvaldo.

A $257-million plan approved Tuesday to reduce overcrowding in Los Angeles County jails could add about 1,000 inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center. Los Angeles County Supervisors voted unanimously to back the plan, which includes building a medium-security facility for women at Pitchess and reopening the Sybil Brand Institute – an East Los Angeles women’s jail that closed in 1998 – where another 1,000 females will be housed. The measure is less drastic and cheaper than some presented to the board last month by the Sheriff’s Department and the county’s chief administrative officer. Ranging up to $1 billion, those plans also could have delivered up to 2,400 more inmates to the Castaic jail complex, now home to 9,000 inmate. With more county jail space, Sheriff Lee Baca on Tuesday said the department can reevaluate its early-release program. With fewer beds than inmates, the department says it has been forced to release inmates early, with many serving just 10 percent of their sentences. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhy these photogenic dumplings are popping up in Los Angeles“We can re-prioritize the early-release program, and keep offenders in for much longer,” Baca said. Doors to the new facility planned for Pitchess are expected to open by 2010. Meanwhile, there will be public hearings and environmental impact reports conducted for Sybil and Pitchess. Eventually, female inmates will be moved to both facilities from Lynwood’s Century Regional Detention Facility, a high-security jail with about 1,460 cells, where county officials hope to transfer male inmates from other jails who need more isolation. Women were moved to the previously closed Lynwood facility in March from Twin Towers to make more room for men there, following violent clashes in the county jails that left two dead and hundreds injured. Although supervisors unanimously approved the expansion proposal, some wondered if the plan goes far enough to address the county’s future prison needs. First District Supervisor Gloria Molina said that the county is putting a lot of money into this solution but was still skeptical. “We’re treading water here,” she said. Baca was cautious too, saying the faces inside the county’s jail system have changed significantly over time and that many of today’s jail inmates are hard-core criminals who belong in prison. He said that about 95 percent of the county’s jail convictions are the result of plea bargaining and that if judges feel strongly about that, then they should send these people to prison – but that would require trials on an already overburdened criminal court system. The sheriff’s proposal on Tuesday also included canceling a contract with California’s prison system that housed prisoners in county jails. The move will open up an additional 1,290 beds. Those prison inmates living in county jails will be transferred to state prisons incrementally over the next six months, said Anna Pembedjian, justice deputy to Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. The county has earmarked funds in this year’s budget to cover the cost of jail expansion and construction. firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECalifornia’s bungled $1 billion accounting system “In hindsight, the consent decree was a less than perfect document. As a result, it is impossible to achieve absolute compliance,” Hatter wrote. “Despite an increasing ridership, increasing traffic congestion and fiscal constraints, MTA has substantially complied with the consent decree while maintaining fares at reasonable levels,” the judge’s ruling states. “The consent decree has served its purpose and will not be extended.” An attorney for the BRU had argued that the consent decree should be extended and the MTA held in contempt for failing to comply with all of its aspects. “We’re surprised \. We certainly have a different view of MTA’s lack of compliance,” said attorney Richard Larson. “It’s a surprise because we’ve litigated for 10 years and we’ve won virtually everything, and so, at the end, it is quite a surprise to take a big loss.” Larson and the BRU have 30 days to consider appealing the ruling to the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The MTA has spent $1 billion in the last 10 years complying with the terms of the decree. Manuel Criollo with the Bus Riders Union said the group was “deeply disappointed” and expressed concern that bus service would now be cut. But Supervisor Gloria Molina, the current MTA chair, said the transit agency will continue to improve service. “We’re not about to lower our standards. Nobody at Metro wants to turn back the clock and undo all the progress we have made,” Molina said. “At the same time, Metro now will have more local control and flexibility in allocating resources to all mobility programs in L.A.

LOS ANGELES – A federal judge Wednesday denied a request by the Bus Riders Union to extend the consent decree under which the Metropolitan Transportation Authority has operated for the last 10 years. Although he will allow the consent decree to expire Oct. 29, U.S. District Judge Terry Hatter did rule that the court will retain authority over the MTA in regard to ongoing service improvements that are scheduled to taken effect prior to Nov. 30, 2010. The consent decree resulted from a lawsuit filed by the Bus Riders Union in 1996 to improve bus service. In his ruling, Hatter applauded the efforts of the MTA, while acknowledging that the agency had not been in compliance with the decree 100 percent of the time.

Indiana State Police arrested a 15-year-old Scottsburg High School student after he allegedly called in a bomb threat to the school on Monday morning.Today, at approximately 9:45 a.m., Scottsburg High School authorities were alerted to a possible bomb threat when a student received a text stating a bomb had been placed in a school locker. School officials immediately evacuated the building and alerted police. Officers utilized bomb-sniffing dogs to search and clear the building. Police eventually determined the threat to be a hoax.Working alongside Scottsburg school resource officers, Detective Matt Busick with the Indiana State Police ascertained the threat was transmitted via a texting app which is sometimes used in an attempt to disguise the sender. Detective Busick was later able to associate the text with a 15-year-old Scottsburg student, who was then questioned. As a result of the investigation, Detective Busick arrested the student at approximately 2 p.m. today and transported the teen to the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center. The student is charged with Intimidation, a Level Six Felony.
