Tottenham's club-record signing Davinson Sanchez has penned a new contract that will keep him at the club until at least 2024.

The 22-year-old moved from Ajax last August for a fee reported to be £42million and went on to become a mainstay at the heart of Spurs' defence.

Sanchez, named in Colombia's World Cup squad, made 41 appearances in all competitions this season as Tottenham bagged a top-four finish in the Premier League.

A statement on Spurs' official website read: "We are delighted to announce that Davinson Sanchez has signed a new contract with the club, which will run until 2024."

Swansea defender Alfie Mawson has undergone knee surgery to leave his World Cup hopes in jeopardy.

Mawson had an operation after Swansea's relegation from the Premier League was confirmed by Sunday's 2-1 home defeat to Stoke.

Swansea are waiting to discover the full extent of the injury but it is feared that Mawson will be out until the start of next season.

The England Under-21 international won a first call-up to the senior squad for the friendlies with Holland and Italy in March, but has still to win his first cap.

Michael Carrick's switch from Manchester United's playing squad to the backroom team will be instant - with Saturday's FA Cup final his first coaching assignment.

Veteran midfielder Carrick hung up his boots on Sunday after playing 85 minutes of United's final Premier League game of the season against Watford.

The following day he began his new job as a member of manager Jose Mourinho's coaching staff, with the small matter of this weekend's clash with Chelsea at Wembley to prepare for.

"It changes overnight," Carrick said. "I am not training this week. I am going to jump on the staff."

The 36-year-old did have other options as he approached the end of his playing career but the chance to work under Mourinho was too good to refuse.

"A couple of years ago I thought maybe it would be a good thing to spend time with the family, but then it's about timing and opportunities," said Carrick, who made 464 appearances for United over 12 years after earlier spells with West Ham and Tottenham.

"You never know what is going to be around the corner. As soon as this came up I didn't think twice.

"He is one of the best, he's been around for many years and it all fits in. I've been at this club, and it is such a great club, so I obviously know the club and the manager.

"So learning from him and the backroom staff, and trying to bring the kids through and have an influence on that just fits. Hopefully it still fits in a couple of years' time."

Allegri unlikely to leave Juventus for Arsenal position

Juventus are optimistic of keeping hold of coach Massimiliano Allegri as rumours he will replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal cool.

The 50-year-old led Juve to a fourth successive Serie A and Coppa Italia double this season and has been heavily linked with replacing Wenger at the Emirates Stadium.

Allegri's name emerged as one of the frontrunners following Arsenal's announcement last month that Wenger would step down after 22 years in charge.

After delivering a seventh straight title for Juventus, Allegri said over the weekend: "If they don't fire me, then I think I'm staying at Juventus next year, too."

The club also seem keen to keep the former AC Milan boss in place, with Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta insisting there is a "willingness" for Allegri to stay put.

"On our side there is great optimism," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Beyond just the formal aspects, the relationship between us has worked as well as possible and I think on both sides there is certainly a willingness to continue together.

"We are going to have a meeting with him in the next few days. The manager demonstrated that he is great and I think our relationship can go on."
