    Our time in the Transfer Centre is over for today. We will be back on Tuesday after the Bank Holiday weekend. Read this story for all the details on Manchester United's decision to appoint Louis van Gaal.
    Now enjoy some photos from Ryan Giggs' career.
    Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has vowed to stay and help build for the future after holding talks with Randy Lerner.
    David van Zanten has announced he is to leave St Mirren.
    This factfile looks back at the rather good career of Ryan Giggs.
    More big news from Old Trafford. Ryan Giggs has announced his retirement as a player following his appointment as assistant to new Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal.

    Kasper Schmeichel has agreed a new four-year contract with Leicester, Press Association Sport understands.
    Check out some of the best photos from Louis van Gaal's career.
    West Brom are set to finalise a deal for Craig Gardner, Sky Sports understands.
    Away from Old Trafford, Motherwell have confirmed that James McFadden will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of this month.

    Our video index has a couple of treats on Louis van Gaal's arrival at Manchester United.

    Rob Lynn writes: "Man U 4/7 for top 4? Knowing that they now need an entire back four, at least one exceptional central midfielder, probably a winger and will also need to keep Rooney and RVP fit, that seems a tad skinny to me. Saying all that, they'll probably overtake four of the six that finished above them this season. Any mention of centre-halves they're after, Hummels maybe? They will surely not risk Smalling and Jones as a first choice pairing."
    In addition to Ryan Giggs, Holland goalkeeping coach Frans Hoek and coach Marcel Bout, a specialist in opposition scouting, will join the Manchester United backroom staff. As yet there has been no announcement from United concerning the future of Moyes' former assistants Phil Neville and Chris Woods.

    Sky Bet make Manchester United 11/8 to land a major trophy next season following the appointment of Louis van Gaal. The online bookmaker are also expecting the Dutchman to be given more time than his predecessor, going 3/1 that he will not be in charge at the end of next season. United are currently fourth in the betting at 11/2 to win the 2014/15 Premier League and 4/7 to be back in the Champions League with a top-four finish, while they are favourites to sign Luke Shaw, Toni Kroos and Seamus Coleman this summer in Sky Bet's Transfer Specials.
    Ryan Giggs is happy to be working with Louis van Gaal: "I am thrilled to have the chance to serve as assistant manager. Louis van Gaal is a world-class coach and I know I will learn a lot about coaching from being able to observe and contribute at such close quarters. Manchester United has been a huge part of my life and I'm delighted to be able to continue that relationship in such a key role."
    New Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says: "It was always a wish for me to work in the Premier League. To work as a manager for Manchester United, the biggest club in the world, makes me very proud. I have managed in games at Old Trafford before and know what an incredible arena Old Trafford is and how passionate and knowledgeable the fans are. This club has big ambitions. I too have big ambitions. Together I'm sure we will make history."
    Manchester United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward says: "In Louis van Gaal, we have secured the services of one of the outstanding managers in the game today. He has achieved many things in his career to date and Old Trafford provides him with a fitting stage on which to write new chapters in the Manchester United story."

    Manchester United have also confirmed Ryan Giggs will be new manager Louis van Gaal's assistant.
    Send your thoughts on the appointment to [email protected].

    Some very, very big news is in. Louis van Gaal will become the new Manchester United manager after the World Cup.

    Chelsea fan Chris Scott writes: "I'd like to say congrats to Atletico Madrid for winning La Liga. Incredible performance really, to unseat the other two with their costly squads over 38 rounds. Can/will this ever happen in the EPL? A Southampton or Newcastle type being able to top the league? Maybe if the Saints don't sell off their best players and bring in a couple more for a bit of depth? Anyway, as for Atletico, they cleaned us up in the semi so I hope they now take real to the cleaners next Saturday."

    The South Wales Evening Post report: "Arsenal and Liverpool have joined Everton in the race to wrest Wilfried Bony away from Swansea City."

    The Sentinel say: "Stoke boss Mark Hughes is reportedly throwing his hat into the ring for Arsenal's young striker Joel Campbell."
    A line from the local papers as the Express & Star report: "Paul Lambert is staying as Villa boss after talks with owner Randy Lerner."

    Here is the full story on Marc Albrighton's switch to Leicester City, and the winger is excited about linking up with the newly-promoted Foxes following his release from Aston Villa.
    I'm absolutely thrilled to be joining. Everything about Leicester City is moving forward at the moment and it's going to be a great football club to be a part of.

    A bit of news from Europe now, and French left-back Anthony Reveillere is a free agent after reaching the end of his contract with Napoli. According to L’Equipe, he will be on the move this summer and is keen to find a new club in Serie A.

    More now on the news that Patrice Evra has signed a new deal to keep him at Manchester United for a tenth season. The French left-back was linked with a return to previous club Monaco during the final months of David Moyes' reign, and United recently tabled a 27m bid for Luke Shaw of Southampton.

    Yaya Toure has been the big story of the week with the fallout from “birthday-gate” but Tony Gale has been telling Sky Sports News Radio the Manchester City man is going nowhere, because no one else can afford to pay him so much.

    Sky Sports understands that a host of cubs are chasing highly-rated Arsenal youngster Chuks Aneke. The midfielder's contract expires this summer and it is understood that the Gunners will not stand in the way of him moving on, with Fulham, Charlton Athletic and Millwall all believed to be keen.

    The future of Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra had been the subject of intense speculation but he has now been given a new deal to stay at Old Trafford for next season.

    Chelsea's list of players released includes Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and Samuel Eto'o. Cole recently tweeted he expected to continue his career away from Stamford Bridge, while Eto'o was tipped to depart at the end of his one-year deal. Lampard's inclusion does not necessarily mean his time with Chelsea is over, but his contract is due to expire this summer and there is currently no new offer on the table from the club.

    According to the Huddersfield Examiner, Huddersfield Town are in talks to sign Coventry City goalkeeper Joe Murphy. The 32-year-old is out of contract at Coventry and could provide Huddersfield No.1 Alex Smithies with competition. Huddersfield boss Mark Robins is also reportedly considering a move for Blackpool defender Craig Cathcart.

    Queens Park Rangers chief executive Philip Beard won't be drawn on rumours of an interest in signing Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand on free transfers after the club won promotion back to the Premier League.

    There's been a lot of speculation but I can promise you that we won't be taking calls or holding discussions with any players at the moment. QPR get linked with everybody and they (Ferdinand and Lampard) are fantastic players but I'm sure Frank Lampard is worried about a certain tournament in Brazil!


    Here's the latest betting odds on Karim Benzema's future, with Arsenal the favourites. However, they face competition from three of the wealthiest teams in Europe. Click here to bet on Benzema's future.

    Wolves full-back Stephen Ward appears to have plenty of options after impressing on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion this season. Ward has previously said he would be happy to return to Brighton, while The Argus reports that Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Burnley are also interested in the Republic of Ireland international.

    We've taken a look through the regional papers to bring you some of the transfer lines doing the rounds:
    MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS: Louis van Gaal has forced Manchester United to redraw their transfer plans after insisting he is not interested in Cesc Fabregas. Van Gaal has instructed Ed Woodward to focus on alternative targets - including Kevin Strootman.
    THE JOURNAL: Alfred N'Diaye's hopes of a move to Spain have been raised, with Sevilla showing interest in the Sunderland midfielder.
    HULL DAILY MAIL: Hull City are ready to open talks with Tottenham this week as manager Steve Bruce aims to make Jake Livermore his first signing of the summer.
    THE PINK UN: Wes Hoolahan's hopes of leaving Carrow Road may hit an immediate stumbling block - with Norwich City in the comfortable position of not having to sell their players.

    Bayer Leverkusen have completed the signing of Croatian goalkeeper Dario Kresic at the end of his contract at Mainz. The 30-year-old only joined Mainz from Lokomotiv Moscow in January and Kresic said: "Bayer Leverkusen is a fantastic club that has played a lot in European club competitions in recent years. It's a big challenge for me helping the club fulfil its ambition."

    Yeovil goalkeeper Marek Stech is to join Sparta Prague on a three-year deal after turning down a new contract offer from the Glovers. Stech returns to his boyhood club where he started his career having made 80 appearances for Yeovil.

    Lukas Podolski sees his future at Arsenal, with the forward reading little into reports of a proposed summer transfer. He claims to be settled in England and enjoying his football at the Emirates.
    As things stand today, I am an Arsenal player (and) it won't change.


    Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has been expressing his delight at penning a new deal at the Nou Camp which will take him through to 2019.
    Knowing that I could live out my career here is a big boost for me. I hope we can enjoy as many successes as we have in recent years.

    Anthony Pilkington admits to facing an uncertain future at Norwich City, but is trying to keep his focus locked on the present. The winger found himself frozen out towards the end of the 2013/14 campaign by caretaker coach Neil Adams - a man who has since being handed a three-year contract - and intends to use his involvement with the Republic of Ireland squad as a 'shop window'.

    Inter Milan president Erick Thohir remains keen on Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko but fears he, along with a number of other top targets, may be out of his price range.
    I like players like (Sergio) Busquets, Luiz Gustavo and Dzeko, but today we cannot afford top players. I hope we can tomorrow.

    Portuguese publication O Jogo is reporting that Bebe has already been informed by parent club Manchester United that they will be looking to loan him out again in 2014/15. His agent is now looking to put an agreement in place, with Braga believed to be leading the chase.

    Freddy Eastwood is considering quitting football having been released by Southend. The 30-year-old former Wales international will ponder his future in the game after the Shrimpers decided against offering him a new deal.

Manchester City remain the favourites for his signature, with Sagna keen to resolve his future before the start of the World Cup.

    Another club to release details of their retained list today are Derby County, still getting over the disappointment of their Sky Bet Championship play-off final defeat to QPR at Wembley on Saturday. The Rams are saying farewell to goalkeeper Adam Legzdins and midfielders James Bailey and Ben Davies. Callum Ball, James O’Connor, Michael Hoganson, Valentin Gjokaj and Ross Atkins already knew they would not be offered new terms either, while talks continue with Lee Naylor. County have taken up contract extension options on Jamie Ward and John Eustace.

    Cambridge United, back in the Football League, have released their retained list following their successful promotion-winning season. Six U's players will be leaving the Abbey Stadium after their contracts were not renewed - defenders Kevin Roberts, Scott Garner and Blaine Hudson, and forwards Andy Pugh, Matthew Barnes-Homer and Sam Smith - while defender Rory McAuley and forward Ashley Chambers have been made available on free transfers.

    Mansfield Town have re-signed centre-back Luke Jones following his release by Stevenage at the end of the season. The 27-year-old returns to Field Mill for a third spell.

    QPR manager Harry Redknapp has told Sky Sports News the club have no chance of signing Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand. Both players have been linked with a move to Loftus Road following their promotion.

    Murat Yakin is the early favourite with Sky Bet to become the next Southampton manager following the departure of Mauricio Pochettino to take charge of Tottenham. Yakin is currently 7/2 to take charge at St Mary's while Michael Laudrup is 6/1 second favourite ahead of Frank de Boer, Rafael Benitez, Steve McClaren and Unai Emery, who are all available at 10/1.
    Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger said: "We have begun the search for a new high-calibre manager. We will be looking for a manager that shares our values, our principles and our philosophy. A manager who can continue to grow the first-team and build on our strong foundation - a foundation led by an ambitious vision and plan that continues to build on our world-class academy, our amazing 129-year heritage and our excellent staff, and rewards our loyal and passionate fan base."
    Spurs chairman Daniel Levy added: "In Mauricio I believe we have a head coach who, with his high energy, attacking football, will embrace the style of play we associate with our club. He has a proven ability to develop each player as an individual, whilst building great team spirit and a winning mentality. We have a talented squad that Mauricio is excited to be coaching next season."
    Mauricio Pochettino told Tottenham's official website: "This is a club with tremendous history and prestige and I am honoured to have been given this opportunity to be its head coach. There is an abundance of top-class talent at the club and I am looking forward to starting work with the squad. Tottenham Hotspur has a huge following across the world and I have great admiration for the passion the fans show for this team. We are determined to give the supporters the kind of attacking football and success that we are all looking to achieve."

    Rob: "Chris, I wish I'd done 'nothing' if that is AKA scoring in a CL final. It would be a very boring sport if every game ended up like the CL final, i.e. the weaker footballing side going one up and then defending for the entirety of the game. Would've been daylight robbery had Atletico won using those tactics IMO. Agree on points 2 & 3."

    Chris Scott: "Daylight robbery no.1: Real winning as they were very average for 93 min. Bale and Ronaldo did nothing! Daylight robbery no.2: Chelsea receiving 50m for david luiz. Don't get me wrong, he has given us great service for 3 years but that seems to be way overs. Daylight robbery no.3: Phil 12.15 comparing Holt to Viduka. Didn't Viduka score 4 in one game against liverpool? It's like comparing Coutinho to Eden Hazard!"

    Phil Edwards: "Saw highlights of Can all last season and he wasn't one that stuck out like a sore thumb. But he's young and can play in a few positions, including left back so I can see the appeal. One that did stand out for me in the Bundesliga was Hamburg's Calhanoglu. Right-footed and played left of a 3 behind the striker, always looking for a shot and seems to consistently whip the ball into those dangerous areas of the box. The striker, Lasogga, that's been mooted for the likes of Newcastle/West Ham looks another Grant Holt/Viduka type."
    The Weekend Review has landed. Champions League and play-off news to the fore, plus the obligatory cheap shots at Harry Redknapp.

    Rob Lynn: "I have to echo the comments on Di Maria being the player of the final. The thing that baffles me with him is he's either excellent or dreadful, that makes him a cert target for Arsenal. Simeone is an utter embarrassment so yes, Chelsea is the ideal fit for sure. Really don't mind who the next manager at Spurs is, unless he's 10 points clear by Xmas he'll be Levy'd. And did I read this right, 40m for Lallana and Clyne to Pool? If so, I'd say Saints might be tempted by that. All speculation of course but gives us something to talk about until the WC. Glad to see Wilshere is fit, good back up if Barkley and Henderson are injured or suspended."
    I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.
    Liverpool are keen on Bayer Leverkusen's Emre Can.

    Brad Smith: "I simply don't understand how you can't like Simeone. The main is pure box office and football is now about entertainment. Passionate and utterly mental. Like a higher quality version of Di Canio. Cant think which club he would manage in the PL though. Chelsea are the obvious ones in terms of personality, and I guess that depends how much patience RA has with Jose. I for one would love him over here." Yeah, Chelsea much the likeliest option you'd think.

    Rich Lynn: "Plus of course Spurs cop a load more cash with Real winning La Decima. Another 8m for Bale I believe. Guess that makes him 94m man now. Not sure if similar applied with Modric."

    Darshan Shah: "I would like to defend Ronaldo here. Though his celebration was a bit over the top, but it was more about his performances through out in the CL rather than his goal scored on the night. You have gotta give him credit for the record breaking 17 goals scored by him in the Champions League. Though i would also add that i loved the way he celebrated (by crying his heart out) when we won the CL in 2008 more." The celebration was about making sure the iconic picture from the night was of him.
    Nathaniel Clyne is desperate for Mauricio Pochettino to stay at Southampton.

    Rich Lynn: "Just a quick congratulations to Real Madrid for winning the Champions League. Good to see the best side, playing the best football triumphed over the park the bus outfit. Also funny to see Simeone revert to type at the end. What a truly horrible character he really is. Will be funny to see him in the Prem one day!! On the Spurs front, it looks like I may have won my first ever 'next manager' bet!! Nice little 5/1 on Pochettino. Might play up the winnings on Spurs next boss in Feb..." Simeone in the Premier League is a thing that absolutely has to happen. Wouldn't last a season but it would be spectacular.

    Burnley manager Sean Dyche is hoping to resolve the futures of Michael Duff, Luke O’Neill and Junior Stanislas after the trio were offered new contracts. Dyche is busy preparing for Burnley’s return to the Premier League and, on Saturday, the club confirmed full-back Kieran Trippier had signed a new contract.

    According to the Daily Mirror, England midfielder Frank Lampard is leaving Chelsea to sign for New York City on a free transfer. Lampard's contract at Chelsea is up and reports claim he was at Manchester City's Carrington training complex today to finalise the details of his deal with New York City, who will be playing in the MLS in 2015.

    Here is the full story on the news that Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston admits he has little control over what happens to Tom Ince, who could end up in Italy after holding talks with Inter Milan.

    That ends our time in the Transfer Centre today. We will be back on Monday for the last time before we take a break for the World Cup.
    Holt! He doesn't go there yet!

    Birmingham have signed former Middlesbrough and Oldham defender Jonathan Grounds.
    Wales boss Chris Coleman feels the pressure will be on for Louis van Gaal to deliver at Manchester United next season.

    Kilmarnock tweet: "We are delighted to confirm that Jamie Hamill has signed a deal which will see him return to Rugby Park until 2017"

    David Villa's move to New York City FC has been completed.

    Rob Lynn responds: "Gordon, the number of players any club need is always an unknown, it purely depends on injuries measured against their ambitions. With the extra 13 games Liverpool will have this year in the CL, I think they need a good few to stay competitive in the PL. Regarding Rooney, it was his first game for about 6 weeks, just a rust removal exercise. He is England's best player and to suggest any different is just strange. I would've taken Cole as he would play against sides with the better attacks, i.e. Uruguay because he is a far better defender than Baines. The squad players mentioned are exactly that, in a WC you shouldn't need to use more than about 15 unless something is drastically wrong. I will be devastated if Barkley doesn't play, he is the ideal candidate to do what Gazza '90, Owen '98, Rooney '04 did and it will only be negativity that would deny him that opportunity."
    More on Cesc Fabregas as Sky sources understand that Manchester City have no interest in signing the midfielder from Barcelona.

    A very good afternoon to Allan: "As a Saints fan I would like to send my thanks to Rickie Lambert for everything that he has given the club over the past 5 years. He is an absolute legend and one of the main reasons that Southampton are back in the Premiership. I am glad that we did not stand in the way of him returning to his boyhood team (does anyone know if Messi is a lifelong Saints fan?) although 4m does sound cheap...I hope the add ons are easily triggered. We know that Saints have operated on a 5 year plan basis and therefore the sale of a 32 year old striker does not signal a mass exodus of talent from St Marys, but a move towards building a relatively young team over the coming seasons to compete in the top half of the table. Getting 4m for Lambert and probably 10m for 'Rocky' Osvaldo gives us a nice 14m in the pocket to find a suitable replacement. The new manager will have the final say on transfers and with a guaranteed 60m a year now in the Premiership there is not as much financial pressure for teams to sell to the so called big clubs (2x Manchesters, Liverpool , Arsenal & Chelsea - I don't include Spurs in that category) and we are an attractive proposition for players looking to move to the Premiership. Now I am looking forward to the World Cup knowing that the crown jewels will not be stolen beforehand and hoping that we get a good manager who will continue the philosophy of fast paced attacking football (Neil Lennon need not apply!)"

    Spanish football expert Guillem Balague tweets: "Latest on Cesc in the next few tweets...1. He has not agreed anything with Chelsea. His agent did not meet Wenger lately (havent spoken for a month) 2. Barcelona have told Cesc he has to find a team. They want the money to buy Koke. Cost: 35m euros 3. Arsenal dont want Cesc back and he has been told that already by Arsenal 4. He is being pushed out by Barcelona but will take his time to find the right club for him" Interesting
    Chelsea and Barcelona are both involved in moves to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke, according to Sky sources.
    The FAI have now confirmed Roy Keane is out of the running to be the next Celtic boss.

    Falkirk have confirmed manager Gary Holt has quit his position after accepting a return to former club Norwich.
    Roy Keane has asked not to be considered for the managerial vacancy at Celtic, Press Association Sport understands.

    Good afternoon to Gordon: "Two or three months ago I suggested that of all the players currently in the PL that might realistically be available to Liverpool, Lallana was the one I would like to see at Anfield next season but I don't think he is worth 30m - but who knows when an ordinary player like David Luiz goes for 50m. Rich Lynn shows his obvious bias against Liverpool when he says they need 6-10 players to cope whereas 4-5 good players is much more likely to be the target. However, even if Liverpool do shell out 30m on Lallana it would still be great business compared with the purchases of Lamela & Soldado in particular and the rest that Spurs blew over 100m on last summer. I fully agree with his brother Rob that Glenn Johnson was dreadful last Friday and that he is fortunate to keep his England place due to the lack of alternatives but to suggest that a fit Kyle Walker is an international class full back is laughable. At least Johnson's poor show has deflected the spotlight away from how bad Rooney was and how much England will regret leaving Ashley Cole out by the time we are knocked out of the tournament. The whole problem with England is that we rely on a number of players like Jones, Smalling, Welbeck, Milner, Oxlaide-Chamberlain etc who struggle to get in their club teams and are yet to show they are good enough but surely if anyone who can't get a game at club level should have gone it must be Ashley Cole who is one of the few top players we have."
