West Ham defender Jose Fonte is joining Chinese club Dalian Yifeng, manager David Moyes has confirmed.

The Portuguese defender has not played for the Hammers since October due to an ankle injury which required surgery.

"I can confirm it's very close," said Moyes. "We wish him good luck."

A reported fee of £5million gives West Ham the chance to recoup a chunk of the £8million they paid to Southampton for Fonte in January 2017.

Arsenal have been drawn to face Italian side AC Milan in the Europa League last 16.

The Gunners suffered the embarrassment of losing 2-1 at home to Swedish side Ostersund in the second leg of their first knockout round match on Thursday night, but progressed 4-2 on aggregate.

They will now take on Milan, a team with great continental pedigree. The Rossoneri have won the European Cup and Champions League seven times but have struggled in recent years, and are currently seventh in Serie A. Elsewhere, Borussia Dortmund will face Red Bull Salzburg and Aletico Madrid take on Lokomotiv Moscow.

Lazio meet Dynamo Kiev, RB Leipzig have been drawn against Celtic's conquerors Zenit St Petersburg, CSKA Moscow face Lyon - who will be hosting this year's final - while fellow Ligue 1 side Marseille tackle Athletic Bilbao and Sporting Lisbon play Viktoria Plzen.

All opening legs will take place on March 8, with the ties concluding on March 15.

Fans at Sunday's Carabao Cup final will be told if the video assistant referee (VAR) is reviewing a decision by a graphic on Wembley's electronic screens, the English Football League has confirmed.

The simple message will say 'VAR Review', and would have been used during the competition's semi-finals but there were no long reviews in those games.

The match between Arsenal and Manchester City will be English football's biggest game yet to use video review, and one of the main criticisms so far has been that supporters at matches are not aware of what is happening when play stops for a review.

Aaron Ramsey is winning his battle to be fit for Sunday's Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

The Wales international has missed the last three games with a groin injury but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is confident he will now be ready to be involved at Wembley.

Mesut Ozil is also expected to be available after illness while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can plan having been ineligible in the Europa League - meanwhile Alexandre Lacazette (knee) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles) are out and Henrikh Mkhitaryan is cup-tied.
