Anelka to sign for Juventus
Sunday 27 January 2013
Nicolas Anelka is on the verge of signing for Juventus after the striker flew into Turin yesterday to have a medical.
The France striker has agreed a deal until the end of the season, with the option for a further year. He had been playing in China for Shanghai Shenhua.
Juventus's chief executive, Giuseppe Marotta, said: "It can be a good move for the short term, then at the end of the season we'll evaluate what must be done."
Millwall face a fine from the Football Association after several plastic bottles were thrown at a linesman during their 2-1 win in the FA Cup tie with Aston Villa at the New Den. The assistant referee Mark Scholes had to take refuge on the pitch.
The FA will wait for the referee's report before deciding what action to take. Three people were arrested at Friday's game, two for public-order offences and one for possession of drugs. A club spokesman said: "It's regrettable that the actions of three or four individuals should have blighted a very good night for the club. We will be liaising with the police and studying CCTV footage, which has proved very successful in the past in identifying offenders."
