Kfm will have commentary of tomorrow night’s match.

Newcastle United have announced that Rafael Benítez will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of this month.

The club says it's not been possible to agree a contract extension.


It's reported that Manchester City are winning the race to sign Leicester defender Harry Maguire.

Maguire had long been linked with a move to City's cross-town rivals United, but it appears City are now favourites to get his signature.

The reported fee of 80 million pounds would make him the world's most expensive defender.


The quarter finals line-up continue to take shape today at the Women's World Cup.

Defending champions USA can book a last eight meeting with hosts France, if they get better of Spain at five o clock.

The eight o'clock kickoff sees Sweden face Canada in Paris, with the winner booking a date with two-time winners Germany.

A fundraising website set up by sacked Australian rugby player Israel Folau ((pron: full-OW)) has been shut down.

His contract was terminated when he posted homophobic comments on social media in April.

Folau began asking for public donations to help him with a legal fight against Rugby Australia - arguing he'd been dismissed unlawfully.

Website said the page he set up violated its rules.
