Comment Advertisement Havertz scored 17 Bundesliga goals this season (Picture: Getty Images)‘He will not move [this summer]. Leverkusen want to enjoy him a bit longer but he’ll move on. Hopefully, he stays in Germany, and the club that can do that is Bayern.’Calmund seems very confident about Havertz’s future, but it will ultimately come down to who can persuade the talented teen next summer and who flashes the most cash in his direction.Havertz is unlikely to make a move this summer as Leverkusen secured a return to Champions League football with a fourth-place finish in the Bundesliga.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityManager Peter Bosz believes this should give them the bargaining power to keep hold of their big names, including both Havertz and another Premier League target, Julian Brandt.‘Yes, it’s a better chance [of Leverkusen keeping both players],’ said Bosz.‘I don’t know. Kai will stay, for sure. And Julian, I hope he will stay. Every player wants to play at the highest level and we have the chance next season to play at the highest level.‘We’re looking forward to it. Not only in the Champions League but also the Bundesliga.‘Our goal will be to be better than this season and therefore we have to work harder than this season and be more clear about how we want to play.

Harry Kane had an early goal wrongly ruled out for offside before Kyle Walker was sent-off for two bookable offences 20 minutes from time.All of Iceland’s good defensive work was undone in the 89th minute when Sverrir Ingason was also harshly dismissed for a second booking when he blocked Sterling’s shot with his arm.With Kane having been replaced by Mason Greenwood, Sterling took responsibility from spot, but the drama did not end there.Straight from kick-off, Joe Gomez was adjudged to have bundled over Holmbert Fridjonsson inside the area, but Bjamason blazed the resulting penalty over.Southgate’s men continued to enjoy the vast majority of possession in the second period, but the closest they came to breaking the deadlock before the dramatic finale was when Iceland’s Kari Arnason flicked Kieran Trippier’s free-kick onto his own post. Moments later Walker’s ill-judged lunge to break up an Icelandic counter-attack left his side a man down.A breakthrough did not look like coming until Sterling collected an overhit corner and the ball struck Ingason’s arm in his attempt to block the shot.Sterling coolly rolled his penalty straight down the middle and how Bjarnason wish he had showed the same composure as his wild finish let England off the hook.Tags: EnglandRaheem SterlingUEFA Nations Leaguelast_img read more

Liske who has been charged with sexual conduct in the 2nd degree sat in silence as jury selection began for his case.One by one Judge Mack along with Prosecutor, Ed Black, and Liske’s lawyer, Dan White questioned citizens to see who would be fit for the trial. Before selecting 12 people to determine Liske’s fate, Liske’s lawyer, called out names of possible witnesses who would be involved with the trial.Judge Mack went over the rule while Ed Black questioned possible jury candidates. At least 15 people we’re let go before a final jury was selected around 11:30 am.“You’re excused,” were the words Judge Mack uttered to citizens he decided to let go.Some issues while selecting a jury included the fact that over a dozen called to duty knew Liske. Some admitted that they would have a difficult time and felt uncomfortable with the facts of the case.“So again we haven’t given the specifics of the case. But if you’re having difficulty of the subject matter or if you think it will cause you not to be able to sit on the jury to a certain attempt to be able to listen to the judge’s obstructions and only consider the evidence that he obstructs you to consider?” Prosecuting Attorney, Ed Black questioned to the jury.Opening statements finally started around 1 pm. Liske was charged with a single count of criminal sexual conduct in the 2nd degree stemming back from an incident involving his now 13–year–old granddaughter.She was 12 back in January when she claimed Liske inappropriately touched her chest at his home. Liske pleaded not guilty to the charge.

He returned to Louisville and was a fourth-round selection of the Detroit Tigers the following year. The Dodgers received a compensatory pick (36th overall) in the 2016 draft and used it to take Vanderbilt right-hander Jordan Sheffield.The slotted money for the 30th overall pick this year was approximately $2.275 million, which will be taken away from the Dodgers’ overall draft pool.
