Zimbabwe celebrate their triumph over Zambia as they lift the Cosafa Cup following their 3-1 victory in the final.

Zimbabwe overpowered their northern neighbours Zambia 3-1 to win the 2017 Cosafa Castle Cup on Sunday and take a record fifth title.

Knox Mutizwa, Talent Chawapiwa and Ocean Mushure all scored in a convincing victory for the Warriors, who took the trophy despite a rigorous schedule that saw them having to play six matches inside a fortnight.

They shrugged off the fatigue to get the better of Zambia, who had only come into the tournament halfway through and were playing only their third game.

Manchester United have agreed a fee of around £75m with Everton for striker Romelu Lukaku, senior club sources have told the BBC.

The 24-year-old Belgium international scored 25 Premier League goals last season.

United, who have been chasing Lukaku for most of the summer, will not now be pursuing their interest in Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata.

Everton sources say no deal or agreement has been reached.

Villa owner and chairman Dr Tony Xia confirmed the Chelsea legend’s arrival on Monday morning, tweeting: ‘Welcome JT to Birmingham city...Aston Villa! #UTV! @AVFCOfficial Announcement shortly!

Local rivals Birmingham City had also been chasing Terry before Steve Bruce convinced the 36-year-old to head for Villa Park — with Xia clearly poking fun at Villa’s neighbours in his tweet.

Wayne Rooney is on the brink of making a sensational return to his former club, Everton, and The Sun reports he will be withdrawn from Manchester United’s squad for their pre-season tour to America.

Rooney exploded onto the national consciousness with two seasons at Goodison Park before joining United in a £20 million transfer just weeks after scoring four goals at Euro 2004.

But his career is set to come full circle, with The Sun reporting that United have granted Rooney, 31, a free transfer despite having two years left on his current contract, with Everton set to take on his wages of £250,000 per week.

Timothy Weah

Timothy Weah has followed in the footsteps of his Ballon d’Or-winning father George by signing a professional contract with Paris St-Germain.

The 17-year-old forward has signed a three-year deal with PSG, the club George represented from 1992 to 1995.

There have already been hints that it is a case of like father, like son.
