Leicester City has announced the signing of Spanish defender Luis Hernandez on a four year deal.

The 27-year-old will join the Foxes on a free transfer in July after his contact with Spanish side Sporting Gijon expires.

Hernandez came through the Real Madrid youth academy and made his debut for Sporting Gijon back in 2012 in Spain's second tier.

He spent last season playing in Spain's top flight after his side were promoted to La Liga.

Notts County interim manager Mick Halsall hopes to "turn the head" of chairman Ray Trew with his side's performances on the pitch.

In his first press conference as interim manager, Halsall refused to rule out taking on the job long term.

He also confirmed he wouldn't be involved in any transfer activity until after their game against Oxford on Saturday.

The Football Association has charged West Brom and Spurs for failing to control their players during their draw at the weekend.

With six minutes remaining of the 1-1 draw, Albion winger James McClean was booked for a foul on Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele.

An on-field flash point ensued and referee Jonathan Moss was harangued by both sets of players, leading the FA to charge the clubs on Wednesday.

Both clubs have until 6pm on Friday to reply to the charge.

Northampton Borough Council will apply to put the town's football club into administration in court on Monday to try and stop it being wound up.

A winding up petition against Northampton Town for unpaid taxes is due to be heard at the High Court in five days time, which could result in the club going into liquidation.

If the Council's petition is granted, it would put the HMRC action on hold and give the Cobblers more time to conclude a takeover.

The Council say they have had reassurance from the Football League that the club would not face a points deduction - that would only happen if all rescue efforts fail.
