Thiago joins Liverpool, Bale arrives at Spurs and more – football countdown

Everton captain Seamus Coleman will make his 250th league start for the club against West Bromwich Albion, boosted by his manager’s confidence that he can carry on playing until he is 40.

“Seamus will be playing, so the congratulations can start,” Carlo Ancelotti said. “We are very lucky to have him as a captain and he is still young at 31. I’m sure he will still be playing when he is 40.”

Ancelotti also confirmed that Everton will be looking to pick up a centre-back on loan before the transfer window closes, with both Mason Holgate and Jarrad Branthwaite out injured for at least a month. Holgate could be out for another six weeks with a foot problem, while 18-year-old Branthwaite damaged his ankle in the Carabao Cup win over Salford in midweek and faces a month on the sidelines. “At the moment we only have Yerry Mina and Michael Keane for the centre-back positions, so we will have to look and see if the market has anything to offer,” Ancelotti said.
