Headlines
Newcastle has signed another midfielder, their second in as many days. This time they have snagged Jonjo Shelvey from rivals, and fellow relegation candidates, Swansea City for £12 million.

Liverpool have taken out a loan for their back line. In a rare sight, Championship side Queens Park Rangers have sent Steven Caulker to the Reds to temporarily patch their depleted defense. He will be eligible for today's clash with Arsenal.

Dele Alli has been a huge reason for Tottenham's success this season and the club has announced they have signed him to a contract extension that will keep him in North london until 2021. The 19-year-old made is first appearance with the England senior team back in October's final round of Euro qualifiers.

Luis Suarez was facing a two game Copa del Rey ban for an incident in the tunnel following Barcelona's victory over Espanyol in the first leg of the round of 16. The Uruguayan appealed the ban and will indeed miss his next two cup matches.

Nemanja Vidic could be on the move out of Italy. He has seen less and less playing time at Inter Milan and the two have agreed to terminate his contract. He has been linked to Everton, Aston Villa, and... DC United.

Jordan Morris has been working out with Werder Bremen, something the Bundesliga outfit are calling a trial. He is impressing the brass over there to the point where he might end up signing on in Germany instead of staying home to play with the Seattle Sounders, who own his MLS rights.

US Soccer have announced a women's tournament to be held this March featuring some of the world's best women's teams. The USWNT will compete with France, Germany, and England from March 3-9 in Nashville, Boca Raton, and Tampa in what is being called the SheBelieves Cup.

There were a couple of MLS moves made yesterday. First, Philadelphia sent Michael Lahoud on loan to NASL's New York Cosmos for winger Walter Restrepo. Restrepo was named to the NASL BEst XI and was a key part in the Cosmos winning the NASL title last season.

Portland added their second player in as many days as well. Ned Grabavoy became the first free agent to sign in the Rose City. The Timbers will be his sixth MLS club in 12 seasons. The Timbers also acquired Zarek Valentin from Montreal in exchange for an international roster spot.Valentin had spent the last three seasons in Norway, and the Timbers simply snagged his international rights from the Impact.
