Chelsea’s Ramires is close to a £25m move to Chinese side Jiangsu Suning.

The 28-year-old Brazil midfielder,
signed from Benfica for about £17m in 2010, agreed
a new four-year deal in October but has only started seven Premier League games this season.

Jiangsu finished ninth in China’s top tier in 2015 and are managed by former Blues defender Dan Petrescu.

Ramires has helped the Blues win the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and Europa League.

Shawcross faces up to a month out

 Posted by at 12:00 AM

Stoke City captain Ryan Shawcross could be out for up to a month with the back injury that forced him off in Saturday’s defeat at Leicester.

The 28-year-old centre-back spent a spell on the sidelines with a similar problem last season.

He also
missed the start of the season after surgery on a back injury before returning at the end of October.

“It is not a recurrence of the injury which required surgery so that is a positive,” said Stoke boss Mark Hughes.

“Unfortunately, the negative is that he has soft muscle damage and at the moment it is looking like it will probably be three to four weeks I would think.”

Shawcross will now miss the second leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final at Liverpool on Tuesday. The Reds beat Stoke 1-0 in the first leg.

The Potters also face an FA Cup fourth-round tie at Crystal Palace as well as Premier League games against Manchester United, Everton and Bournemouth in the next month.

won 3-1, was substituted after the incident, which was missed by referee Martin Atkinson.

Wickham has until 18:00 GMT on Tuesday, January 26 to respond to the charge.

Unlawful killing option for Hillsborough
crush in stand
Image caption The inquest, the longest in UK legal history, began on 31 March 2014

The jury at the Hillsborough inquests has been told one of its options is to consider whether the 96 victims of the disaster were unlawfully killed.

The coroner has begun summing up nearly two years’ evidence into the disaster.

Sir John Goldring also told the jury it would be asked if “error or omission” by emergency services, match planners, football supporters and stadium design contributed to the 1989 disaster.

He said the question of how the 96 died was “the most controversial”.

There are certain words such as “crime” the jury should not use, he added. However, he said words such as “failure”, “inappropriate” and “inadequate” could be used.

Over the next three weeks, the coroner will review evidence on how 96 Liverpool fans died at the FA Cup semi-final in Sheffield.

The jury is due to retire to consider its verdicts on 22 February.

The issue of unlawful killing is one of 14 questions the jury will have to answer which will also include whether opportunities were lost to save lives.

Sir John has called more than 500 witnesses including survivors, police and medical experts during the inquests, which began on 31 March 2014.

They are already the longest in English legal history.
