Canaries set to sign Elmander

Norwich are close to signing former Bolton striker Johan Elmander from Galatasaray, according to the Turkish club.

Elmander, 32, cannot count on regular first-team action with the Turkish giants and will instead attempt to earn a place in Chris Hughton's attack.

"I can confirm Johan is moving to England. We have agreed with Johan, his new club Norwich and his agent Anders (Wallsten). We wish Johan the best of luck in the future."

Emmanuel Eboue still loves Arsenal

Emmanuel Eboue has confessed he is still very much in love with Arsenal football club.

The 30 year-old left for Galatasaray two years ago when his performances deteriorated so much that supporters cheered sarcastically during one game when he was substituted.

But he's a loving man.

I always want to hear news from the club because I am a big supporter of them. I’m a Galatasaray player now, but I am still in love with Arsenal and I always watch their games.

My only bad day was that game against Wigan, but that was something you must be ready for as football player. I will never, ever forget Arsenal or its supporters and I cannot wait to see them again.

I am so excited the Emirates Cup. I was on holiday when I first found out - one of my friends called me and said: ‘Manu, you know you’re going to play in the Emirates Cup against Arsenal?’
