Rivals chase teenage prospect

Chelsea have invited highly-rated young goalkeeper Dominik Dyk to train with them, the Daily Mail reports.

The 16-year-old Pole, who plays for Morawica Moravia, has also attracted interest from Fulham.

AVB in the news again.

The Sun, which on Friday linked Fabio Capello with Chelsea, note that Blues owner Roman Abramovich has again visited the club’s training ground – seemingly increasing the pressure on manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Several papers include Villas-Boas’ recent comments about players who dive in order to win penalties.

He believes new rules should be introduced – as with the clampdown on two-footed tackles – in order to deal with the problem.

Meanwhile, speaking ahead of his team’s match against QPR, Blackburn striker Yakubu has claimed that he rejected a transfer to Loftus Road.

Yakubu was one of a host of forwards Rangers enquired about prior to the sacking of Neil Warnock, and the Nigerian says he had the chance to move.

The Daily Star quote Yakubu as saying: “I decided not to go. I’m really happy here, so why leave? I’m lucky to be at Blackburn.”
