Newcastle lead Liverpool and Southampton in 15 team race for Europe’s most wanted goalkeeper

first_imgMolde goalkeeper Orjan Nyland is wanted by up to 15 clubs – including Newcastle, Liverpool, Southampton and Celtic.According to Norwegian publication TV2, Nyland, who has conceded seven goals in Molde’s first six league games this season, has impressed many European scouts and is likely to move during the summer transfer window due to a £2.3m release clause in his contract.The 24-year-old, who was named in UEFA’s Under-21 team of the tournament following the European Championship in 2013, has won the Tippeligaen and three domestic cups since joining Molde in 2013, as well as cementing his spot in the Norway national side.With the potential departure of Tim Krul, Nyland would compete with recent signing Karl Darlow and Rob Elliot for the keeper’s jersey at St James’ Park.Celtic, Liverpool and  Southampton would all likely buy the Norwegian international as a second-string goalkeeper – so the Tyneside club looks to be Nyland’s likeliest destination at this stage.

Warriors unfazed about LeBron James going to the Lakers

Goody StayPut Elastics : The only hair elastics you’ll need

first_imgMy wife loves these as the ribbing is very good at staying in place without tangling or pulling her hair. She walks a lot and in scotland that means pulling your hood up a lot in the rain, she is also a photographer and has to tie her hair back a lot at work so these have had a thorough testing. Best elastics ever, really stay up. Best elastics ever, really stay up. Sadly these are chunkier than the picture suggested and seem too tough for fine hair. The prevous hair elastics i purchased years ago also had some non-slip coating but were thinnner and more light weight. The only hair elastics you’ll needGreat for thick hairGoody StayPut Elastics, Black 10 eaPackage Description: 10 CountServing Size: ..Number of Servings: ..Unit Type: Each The only hair elastics you’ll need. I’ve been using these elastics for about five years now, and for a while they disappeared from the uk. I tried several alternatives which promised to stay put, but nothing was in the league of these. Blax, invisibobbles – you name it, i bought it while waiting for goody to bring these back to the uk. Essentially, you’re getting a hair tie with a thread of silicone spiralled around it. The join is also covered by a band of silicone, which should keep the ends together well (i’ve only ever lost undue to it snapping) as well as giving a bit more “stick”. The silicone keeps the band in place, and they’re not kidding – it stays put. I’ve not had to adjust my ponytail all day. Obviously, as it gets older, the elasticity goes, but it takes a good few months of everyday use for it to get to that point. I’ve also bought goody stay put hold elastics sparkly metallic bunette,8-count #76769 (3-pack) from a well known high street chemist, and while they’re also great, these ones seem to be a lot thicker, even if they don’t match my hair colour as well as the others.
