    Newcastle United have signed Serbia youth defender Miodrag Pivas from Jedinstvo.

    The 19-year-old also operated in defensive midfield last season, helping his side win promotion to the Serbian Super Liga.

    "It's absolutely unbelievable to join such a big club," Pivas told Newcastle's official website, external.

    "I see the young players have developed very well here and I would like to do the same - to develop and get into Newcastle's first team. I'm very excited and I can't wait to begin."

    Magpies chief executive Darren Eales described Pivas as "a promising talent with high potential".

    "We look forward to supporting his development at this important stage of his career," he added.

    The Friedkin Group seemed like being the latest saviours of the Toffees but talks have fallen apart and they informed owner Farhad Moshiri of their desire to pull the plug on the deal on Thursday.

    BBC Sport understands the major stumbling block has been a situation involving previous prospective buyer 777 Partners, whose proposed takeover plan had been backed by funding from financial insurers A-Cap.

    The 777 group loaned Everton £200m during their attempt to take over and the issue was not paying that off, but the legal action that 777 faces in the US.

    They go into 2024-25 with renewed vigour in, what will be, a season of celebration during the club's final games at Goodison Park before moving into their new home on Bramley-Moore Dock.

    Friedkin Group did not know how long this would last for, was unclear about who was in charge of the loan, and was wary of any potential risk, so it decided to walk away rather than wait for the issues to be resolved.

    Now The Friedkin Group have become the latest creditor to the club after lending them £200m during their short period in trying to purchase Everton.

    For Moshiri, it's back to square one as he seeks to find another buyer.

    Aston Villa have re-signed England Under-21 winger Jaden Philogene from Hull - less than 12 months after selling him to the Tigers.

    The 22-year-old has penned a five-year contract after Villa more than matched Ipswich's £18m offer.

    Yet Hull will not get all of the cash due to the 30 per cent sell on inserted in the deal which took him to the Tigers, meaning they will bank around £13.5m.

    Villa are also close to the signing of £50m Everton midfielder Amadou Onana.

    Philogene made six appearances, but just one start, for Villa after coming through the club's academy and had loans spells at Stoke and Cardiff.

    Everton also wanted the wideman while Crystal Palace were interested but decided a deal was too expensive.

    The signing of Philogene and the expected transfer of Onana will take Villa's spending this summer to around £140m.

    Enzo Barrenechea and Samuel Iling-Junior have joined from Juventus, Ross Barkley made a £5m move from Luton and winger Lewis Dobbin also joined from Everton for £9m last month.

    Douglas Luiz was sold to Juve for £42m in June which eased fears about breaching profit and sustainability rules.

    Everton are interested in signing forward Jesper Lindstrom from Napoli.

    The 24-year-old Denmark international joined the Serie A side from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer for £25m but has failed to make an impact in Italy.

    Lindstrom made just two starts all season and did not manage to score a goal or register an assists.

    The Toffees are looking to add a winger to their squad this summer.

    They are also known to have a long-standing interest in Leeds United's Wilfried Gnonto and had three bids for the 20-year-old Italy international rejected last summer.

    Fiorentina and Serbia defender Nikola Milenkovic is due to have his medical at Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.

    The Reds need defensive reinforcements after selling centre-back Moussa Niakhate to Lyon for £27m.

    Milenkovic has 56 caps for Serbia and he played in all of their Group C games at Euro 2024, including the 1-0 defeat by England.

    The 26-year-old started his career at Partizan and spent two seasons in their first team before joining Fiorentina in 2017.

    In his seven-year stint at the Serie A club, Milenkovic has made 264 appearances, scoring 17 goals and providing five assists.
