Derek Jeter’s Tampa mansion hits market for $29 million

St. Jetersburg is on the market.

Derek Jeter and his supermodel wife, Hannah, are putting their palatial mansion in Tampa, Fla., on the market, with an asking price of $29 million, according to the New York Times.

“This is the most impressive home to ever hit the market in the Tampa Bay area,” Stephen Gay, of Smith & Associates Real Estate, told the paper.

Jeter, the Yankees’ Hall of Fame shortstop and CEO of the Marlins, owned the expansive property on Davis Islands, located south of downtown Tampa. It is a 30,875-square-foot estate that was built in 2012 and sits on 1.25 acres. It has seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, eight half-baths, and almost 9,000 square feet of outdoor space that includes two boat lifts and an 80-foot-long pool.

Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bündchen moved into Jeter’s house after the quarterback left the Patriots to sign with the Buccaneers, renting the house knowing Jeter had intentions of selling it.

“Tom and Derek negotiated favorable terms in the lease agreement so the Jeters could list, market, show and sell the property for sale,” Gay told the Times.

In 2017, the Jeters moved to Miami after he took over the Marlins.

Liverpool confirm £41m signing of Wolves star Jota

Liverpool confirm £41m signing of Wolves star Jota

Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Diogo Jota from Wolves as the Portuguese winger heads to Anfield in an initial £41 million ($53m) move.

Goal confirmed Liverpool’s interest in Jota on Friday,  as the Reds moved quickly onto their next target shortly after sealing the signing of Thiago Alcantara.

Just one day after confirming the signing of the Spain international midfielder, Liverpool have locked up a deal for Jota, who joins on a five-year contract as he becomes the second signing to arrive at Anfield this week.

The Reds could end up paying as much as £45m ($58m) for the Portugal international, with up to £4m set to be owed to Wolves in potential add-ons after they agreed to flexible payment terms that were crucial to completing the deal.

Liverpool will pay as little as 10 per cent of the initial figure over the next 12 months, with some of the cost also offset by Ki-Jana Hoever’s £10m ($13m) move the other way.

The duo of Jota and Thiago joins full-back Kostas Tsimikas as Liverpool’s summer signings,  with Jurgen Klopp’s champions having added to their squad as they look to defend their Premier League crown.

Following confirmation of his move, the 23-year-old told the club’s official website: “It’s just a really exciting moment for me and my family.

“All of my path since I was a kid and now, to join a club like Liverpool – the world champions – is just unbelievable. I just want to get started.

“It is one of the best teams in the world – the best at the moment because they are world champions. When you look at the Premier League, you always see Liverpool as one of the biggest teams in the country, so it’s impossible to say no.

“So we just want to come [here], to give our best and hopefully I can become a good option for Liverpool in the future.”

He added on the prospect of playing alongside Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino: “They are world-class players. Every match, they try to win. They score a lot of goals and they work together.

“I want to be one more piece to join that three. That’s what I will do. They are obviously more experienced than me, so the first stage is to connect with them, to learn with them. Hopefully I can be a good help for them and the club to win games.”

Jota, who will wear the No.20 shirt for Liverpool, originally moved to Wolves in 2017, originally on loan from Atletico Madrid before the signing was made permanent one year later.

The Portuguese winger scored 44 goals in 131 appearances for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, helping them rise from the Championship to the Premier League and into contenders for the European places.

After scoring nine goals during his first season in England’s top flight, Jota added seven more in 2019-20, while adding a further nine in 14 Europa League games.

He will now join Liverpool as much-needed cover for the club’s first-choice front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Klopp and Liverpool had also targeted Watford star Ismaila Sarr, but turned to Jota after refusing to meet the £40m ($52m) asking price for the Senegal winger.

Wolves boss Nuno all but confirmed the deal earlier on Saturday , saying that Liverpool have added a “great player and boy” that was looking to move on to new challenges.

NFL player with fever being kept off field ‘out of caution’

An unidentified NFL player is being withheld from one of today’s games “out of caution” after coming down with fever, according to the Washington Post.

The player, whose identity is not currently known, tested negative for COVID-19 Saturday but now has a fever and will not compete Sunday for precautionary reasons. The report says another source claims the player “woke up ill” Sunday morning.

The Washington Post reported that all NFL players and coaches tested negative for the coronavirus Saturday.

The unnamed player’s close contacts are all getting point of care tests, per ESPN.

After a week of games, the NFL reported no positive coronavirus cases within the league. The same can’t be said for the select fans who attended football games this past week, particularly the fan who attended the Kansas City Chiefs’ game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sept. 10 and tested positive for COVID-19. With advanced contact tracing protocols, however, the Kansas City Health Department was able to direct 10 people who came in contact with the fan to quarantine.

Leicester sign Cengiz Under from Roma on a season-long loan

Leicester City have announced the signing of Cengiz Under on a season-long loan from Roma.

Under will spend the 2020-21 campaign at the King Power Stadium subject to Premier League and international clearance, with the Foxes reaching a final agreement over a reported £2.7 million loan fee with the Giallorossi on Saturday.

The 23-year-old has spent the last three years of his career at Stadio Olimpico, but will now link up with fellow countryman Caglar Soyuncu at the King Power Stadium.

The Turkey international is looking forward to working with Soyuncu at club level and also says he is relishing the chance to prove himself in the English top flight.

Under told Leicester’s official website after his unveiling: “I can’t wait to go to Leicester and start training. I’ve always wanted to play in England and this is a great opportunity to play in the Premier League.

“I will try to help my team-mates on the pitch and off the pitch and I believe that I can improve my performance every day. I think I am fast and can create lots of chances for my colleagues. 

“I feel very good because my best friend plays for Leicester City. I am very happy to be able to play with Caglar and I always watched Leicester’s games because of him.”

Roma invested €13 million (£12m/$15m) in Under’s talents in the summer of 2017, snapping him up from Basaksehir on a five-year contract.

The Turkish winger has since racked up 88 appearances across all competitions for Paulo Fonseca’s side, scoring 17 goals and providing 12 assists.

He was rewarded for his performances with a new long-term contract in August 2019, but only featured in 18 Serie A matches for Roma last season.

Under will now be expected to help Leicester build on a fifth-place Premier League finish, with Brendan Rodgers leading the club during their first foray into the Europa League.

The Roma star will not be eligible to feature when the Foxes take on Burnley at the King Power this weekend, but could be in line to make his debut during an EFL third-round clash against Arsenal on Wednesday.

Leicester are due to take in a trip to Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City four days later, with the fixture list set to pile up quickly due to the scheduling changes caused by the coronavirus crisis.
