Have a look at all the transfers made so far this summer by Huddersfield Town and their Premier League rivals...

And Gerrard’s former England midfield team-mate Frank Lampard says a desire to return to the sharp end of the game led him to his first managerial role with Derby County.

The 39-year-old former England and Chelsea midfielder was unveiled at Pride Park on a three-year contract on Thursday.

Lampard, Chelsea’s record goalscorer, had been working as a pundit for BT Sport since retiring from playing in 2017, but he was always on the lookout for his first opportunity in management.

“I’ve had 18 months away, which has been great for me,” he said.

“But I still had the desire to manage, to work at the cut-throat end, which has been there since I can remember. I missed that.”

New Era At Ibrox Begins...

New Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is ready to get stuck into his new role after assuming full control at Ibrox.

The former Liverpool and England midfielder has officially started his reign as Rangers manager today, having been unveiled at the start of May.

Gerrard has the unenviable task of trying to topple Brendan Rodgers’ dominant Celtic side and must hope to close a 12-point gap to the Old Firm rivals next season.

The club has been busy since the end of the season, finalising deals to bring in Scott Arfield, Allan McGregor and Jamie Murphy to bolster their squad, and Gerrard is excited to formally begin preparations for the upcoming season.

“June 1 is the day I have been waiting for and I am absolutely desperate to get started officially in my role as the manager of Rangers Football Club,” he told the club website.

Mauricio Pochettino set for Bernabeu switch?

Real Madrid have started their search for Zinedine Zidane’s replacement - but will face a challenge to lure Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino to the Bernabeu.

Less than a week after leading Los Blancos to Champions League glory for a third straight season with victory over Liverpool in Kiev, Zidane announced his shock departure.

Zidane’s long-term future continued to be the subject of speculation during a disappointing La Liga campaign which saw Real struggle to finish third, some 17 points behind their bitter rivals Barcelona.

And despite Pochettino agreed a new five-year contract with Spurs last week, the former Espanyol and Southampton boss is said to be on Real’s shortlist.

But it is believed there is no buy-out clause in the terms of Pochettino’s new deal and no verbal agreement with chairman Daniel Levy.
