Raheem Sterling has agreed personal terms for a move to Chelsea from Manchester City.

It is understood the two Premier League clubs are now working out the final details of an expected £45million transfer.

Should it go through, the move would end England international Sterling's seven-year stay at the Etihad Stadium.

The 27-year-old has scored 131 goals for City in 339 appearances since moving from Liverpool for £49million in 2015.

During his time in Manchester he has won nine major trophies, including four Premier League titles.

Yet with his contract due to expire at the end of next season, speculation over his future has been rife for some time.

Derby County have signed Irish pair David McGoldrick and Conor Hourihane.

Hourihane, released from Aston Villa a month ago, has penned a two-year deal with the Rams, who will be playing in League One this campaign.

The 31-year-old had a good loan spell at Sheffield United that ended in the disappointment of a Championship play-off semi-final loss to Nottingham Forest on penalties.

McGoldrick, who retired from international duty in November 2020, has also been snapped up by new boss Liam Rosenior on a one-year deal.

The 34-year-old attacker has spent the last four years at Sheffield United, scoring 27 goals in 127 appearances.

Wayne Rooney stepped down as manager of embattled Derby two weeks ago.

Derby were plunged into administration at the start of last season and were relegated from the Championship despite Rooney leading a valiant fight against the drop in the face of a combined 21-point deduction.

Rosenior is now looking to rebuild the side as they aim to bounce back at the first time of asking.

Nottingham Forest have signed French defender Moussa Niakhate from Mainz.

The 26-year-old has signed a three-year deal, with the option of a 12-month extension, at the City Ground.

The former France Under-21 international is Forest's fourth signing of the summer after Dean Henderson, Taiwo Awoniyi and Giulian Biancone.

Niakhate made 128 Bundesliga appearances for Mainz and captained the side after moving from Ligue 1 side Metz in 2018.

He said: "For me, this a dream to come to England and to sign for such a historic club in Nottingham Forest. The club is well known around the world and its fans are incredible.

"The Premier League is also the best league in the world and every player wants to play here."

Niakhate will link up with the Forest squad at their pre-season training camp in Spain.

Head coach Steve Cooper said: "Moussa comes to Forest with a wealth of experience in one of Europe's top competitions.

"In addition to being a strong, fast and accomplished centre-back, he's captained Mainz to their best league finish in the last five years, and his leadership experience is invaluable for our return to the Premier League.

"Moussa has attracted the interest of multiple clubs but he has chosen Nottingham Forest and we are delighted to welcome him into the squad."

Fulham have had an offer accepted by Manchester United for midfielder Andreas Pereira.

The 26-year-old progressed through the Old Trafford youth system after joining from PSV Eindhoven in 2011.

Pereira has made 75 first-team appearances for United, who have loaned him out to Granada, Valencia, Lazio and Flamengo down the years.

The Brazil international recently returned from a spell at the latter and could now be making a permanent exit to Fulham.

It's understood that the promoted club have seen their offer of an initial £8m (€9.3m) and a further £2m (€2.3m) in potential add-ons accepted by United.

The deal would included a 20% sell-on clause but an agreement has yet to be signed.

Leeds have signed USA midfielder Tyler Adams from RB Leipzig for an undisclosed fee on a five-year deal.

Adams, 23, is reunited with Leeds head coach Jesse Marsch, who he played under at both New York Red Bulls and Leipzig, after the two clubs agreed a reported £20million fee.

Adams made 38 appearances in all competitions for Leipzig last season, including five in the Champions League.

He made his Major League Soccer debut for New York Red Bulls as a teenager under Marsch in 2016 and moved to Europe in 2019 with Leipzig, where the Leeds boss was assistant to Ralf Rangnick before taking on the senior role.

Adams, who made 103 appearances in all competitions for Leipzig, is the third player to team back up with Marsch at Elland Road.

Attacking midfielder Brenden Aaronson and right-back Rasmus Kristensen arrived earlier this summer from another of Marsch's former clubs, RB Salzburg.

Romaine Sawyers has signed a two-year deal at Cardiff.

The 30-year-old was available after leaving West Brom following three seasons at the Hawthorns.

The midfielder, who spent last season on loan at Stoke, made 64 appearances for the Baggies.
