North American League Tables

Claudio Ranieri has a job again. The former Leicester City manager has been hired by Nantes. The French side finished seventh in Ligue 1 last year and have brought Ranieri on to try and work the same magic he sued on the Foxes in 2015-16.

On the flip side of that, SOuthampton have sacked manager Claude Puel after one season. Puel led Saints to the EFL Cup Final and an eighth place finish in the Premier League, two places lower than a year ago.

There were a few relatively minor European transfers yesterday. First, defender Harry Maguire is set to sign for Leicester City from Hull for £17 million. Next, French international midfielder Corentin Tolisso is leaving Olympique Lyonnais for Bayern Munich for a sum of  €41.5 million. German runners up RB Leipzig have brought on Bruma from Galatasaray on a five year deal. Finally, Barcelona have made their loan of Marlon Santos form Fluminense in Brazil permanent.
